2800th Rating Beer: Great caramel coloured body with an orange glow and a dense (four centimetres tall) tan head. Aroma of pure fresh cascade hops - amazing smell. Medium-bodied; Assertive hop bite with a good floral and grapefruity taste, all with a potent and nice malt balance and fresh fruit taste with lemons coming in afterwards. Overall, a very nice and freshly hopped IPA that sits up very well in this age of imperial everything - this is a great, traditional IPA with a great balance that doesn’t need any gimmicks - of course, the can helps too ;-) Definitely worth trying if you can get your hands on it - I don’t know how it ended up in my local store! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased as a six pack from Norm’s in Vienna, Virginia on 01-July-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 21-October-2010.

jeff789 (1408) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2010
very slightly hazy golden amber with a nice off white head leaving very nice lacing... slightly sweet aroma, fair amount of hops, some malts, touch of caramel, a little toasty, a little citrusy... A little too malty for my liking, decent hoppyness but for me the sweet slightly toasty malts are too dominant... Medium body, dry finish...

Can thanks to Scrizz. Pours clear amber. Strong nose of hops and citrus as soon as can pops. Wow!. Nose/taste of hops, citrus, caramel malts. Dry pine finish.

From a can - that’s right a beautiful IPA from a can. This is, simply put, a beautiful IPA. If you like hops and nicely bitter IPA’s, then you’ll love this beer. This falls into one of my favorite IPA’s, and i’m a hop head...

Nice but somewhat typical orange/amber mostly clear colored pour with a bit of white head. Aroma is mild but pleasant - piney hops dominate here. Flavor is much more bold with very strong tasty bitterness coming through big time with a nice hint of citrus around the edges. Definitely a bit of a tongue bruiser, but not overpowering. The carbonation level is excellent. Would definitely drink this again. A really excellent example of on IPA. Tasty!
