Pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a small head that collects to a nice ring. Aroma is juicy and fruity. Fresh squeezed oranges and grapefruit, light pine, light pineapple, and light caramel. Taste sugary sweet and very juicy. Only a light bitterness. Grapefruit juice, orange peel, pineapple, and light lemon. Very dry finish with some tartness too

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells slightly sweet, slightly hoppy and has characteristics of white bread and a paper-like smell. Hazy yellow color. White bubbly head. Tons of lacing. Tastes citrusy and hoppy. Not great, kind of fake like a cheap lemon drop. Palate is decent. Not overly impressed with this one. Will be trying more selections from cedar creek but this one was a miss

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the can. Not bad, not great. Seems a little sweet but not a show stopper. Hops shine and give way to bitterness. I think if you used the word "dank" to review this, then you just phoned it in. Wait a minute... drats. Anyway, pretty fair but not a repeat purchase. I like my IPA a little more crisp.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Low fill in a 16 oz can. Oxidized, no hop aroma or flavor,...oxidized crystal malt aroma and flavor...smells of sherry and almonds and cardboard. Nonexistent body (due to oxidation prob). Weak recipe, worse packaging process and the most expensive ipa on shelf space shared with a gabfest gold and bronze...go figure

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
473ml can. Smell is peach and heavy pine, some sugar, spice. Flavor is big piney bitterness, dank, mango, and heavy malt though not caramally, just sweet and boozy. Decent ipa.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mixed feelings about this one. Nice hop aroma of floral and pine, which made it promising. Unattractive murky sand color that did not make it inviting. Upfront hoppy aroma but not overpowering. Medium to average palate for the style. Some malty sweetness to balance.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz. can. Pours a medium, well retained, off white head, over a hazy, gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is American style hops with pine, resin, grapefruit, light cereal malts, balance to the hops......taste is slightly floral sweet initially, with light honey tones, light cereal malts, becoming mildly bitter, with herbal hop notes, balance to the hops......mouth feel, light of medium body, slightly sticky, minimal alcohol, light but creamy carbonation. This is a relatively light IPA in both the malt and hop backbones. It is definitely "American" in the hop aromas and flavors, but is quite light in bitterness. The malt backbone is quite restrained. To make it a more typical would require additional forces for both the malts and hops. It really is not "mammoth". BJCP 7/2/13/4/6
