An ale fashioned to survive the long voyage from England to India during the British colonization. Hops, hops, and more hops, this ale has an intense aroma and a long lingering finish. Drink as an appetizer on its own, or pair it with any hearty dish. A beer for the connoisseur, this is the Brewmasterís choice. "Cheers!"

Can. Pours a reddish amber with a lasting pearl head. Very aromatic... floral, citrus, kind of sweet. Tastes hoppy - citrus, pine, some floral notes. Balanced with a slightly sweet maltiness. Warming mouthfeel. Finishes with a pine grassiness. Probably the best beer you can get in a can, and a very good IPA as well.

This is an extraordinarily clear beer as it pours from the can w/ a bright orange color. The head is small and short lived but it does leave behind a pretty intense fine patchwork of lace. Nose is citrus hops w/ a bit of bread yeast and a pine note. Light bodied w/ a bracing earthy bitterness, this comes off a little unbalanced and perhaps lacking malt depth. Rather high carbonation, further lightens the body and cuts sweetness, which can be good in some cases but here there is not hardly any sweetness to begin w/. It is an IPA though so itís hard to fault it too much for being hop centric; itís just not quite to my personal taste. This is a brew that cannot see the beer forest through the hop trees.

It pours a deep golden color with a white head that quickly disappears to a thin cap. It has some lacing but little carbonation. The aroma is dominated by the hops. There is strong citrus and piney notes as well a little floral. The flavor is off balanced. It is VERY hoppy. You are getting some faint malts. But the bitterness from the hops are very dominating. There is some grapefruit,very light carmel. It finishes with a huge dose of bitterness and some floral. If you are into IPA this may be the one for you. First thing I ever tried from these guys. Itís not bad just too much hopís for me.

Can thanks to savvy1982. Pours with a hazed orange body and a off-white head. Great lace (ring per sip) and retention. Aromas of caramel, citrus, orange slices, lightly herbal, light tropical fruits, sort of a candyish toffee quality to it. Flavors are bitter, dry, grainy, husky and some hop fruitiness. Light citrus tea. Mandarin oranges. Not the most assertive or hoppy IPA ever, but it is nicely bitter and easy to drink (and thankfully not sweet). Medium to lively bubbles. Dry. Not exactly styled like a west-coast IPA, but surprisingly tasty for sure!

Picked up at Julioís on 02.26.2010. A: Pours a nice copper with a bit of a reddish tint to it. Very nice tan head, leaving loads of lacing as it goes down. S: Loads of citrus, grassy, and earthy hops atop a slightly-sweet caramel malt base. I had heard this described as "baby Furious" and that actually comes pretty close. T: Some sweet malt in the background, which balances things out a little bit, but this one is almost entirely hops. Definite earthy and herbal hops with bits of citrus. Hoppy flavors, although itís not terribly bitter. M: Medium body with a smooth creaminess. Slightly chewy. No alcohol presence. D: Very, very drinkable. Hopefully weíll see expanded distribution on this one soon. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 03-08-2010

12 oz can courtesy of savvy1982. Thanks Kyle. pours a hazy copper color with a small white head that has fair retention and ample lacing. The aroma is strong with pine and citrus. The flavor is biter hops forward with pine resins, grapefruit, oranges, toffee, caramel and some soap. The palate is full and malty with lively carbonation. Finishes short and clean. Overall: A very tasty brew, and this is an awesome IPA from a can!

pours a nice hiney color...slightly opaque...with a medium tan head...nice retention and lacing. aroma is bursting with citrus...grapefruit, pineapple, mango...also a hint of orange blossom and notes of hay. flavor is dominated by grapefruit and also has some spicy hops and earthy notes. less floral than the aroma but nice. mouthfeel is fairly oily and sticky with a very dry, lingering bitter finish. better than i expected!

Can at Fountainhead. Pours a deep copper with sticky head. Nose is piney and caramel. Resiny. On taste, nice level of carbonation, quite bitter. Caramel is definitely there but it still tastes fresh. Nice and clean. Pretty solid, though not my favorite type of IPA.

12oz can from Binnyís SL. Awsome looking can. Poured a clear gold color. The head was white and left some lace behind on the glass. Smelled of distinct mango, orange, and sweaty hops. Medium bodied and delicately sweet with mild to moderate bitterness. Pleasant hop forward flavors that included the likes orange and sweat. The malt bill was relatively light, but some caramel and graham cracker emerged at the end. Overall an excellent IPA in a can glad we get it here in Chicago.

Pours a nice amber color with a good hoppy aroma. Fairly strong spicy hop flavor with a hint of citrus. An excellant IPA showing more good beer coming in cans.
