3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft - Skunky pine hops. Cloudy gold with a thin white head. Bitter grapefruit and a sweet caramel backbone. Lots of hops but a nice balance of sweetness to reduce the bitterness. Nice west coast style, a bit of booze in the bitter finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can sample courtesy of dak. It pours with a deep gold body that support a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a pleasing mix of citrus, mango and floral hops where there is a subtle supportive sweetness well off in the background. The taste starts with hoppy goodness in the form of grapefruit hops mixed with a bit of mango tropical fruit and then some spicy onion dankness to floral hoppiness. Wow. These various hops work very well together and are bound together by a subtle sweet malt backbone. Delicious IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured out of a tall can into a glass -- Suprisingly had zero lingering head, just a wisp of white bubbles, however they linger and stick to the glass decently. Flavor is a great balance between malt/hops, hop forward that gives way to a great sweet (hop driven) flavor with malt backmasking. Overall, I would like to drink this with dinner. Very nice overall. Nothing overly impressive, just solid.

Pours a nice gold color with a fluffy white head. Nice lacing. This is very good. Quite bitter with grapefruit peel, pine trees, very light malt sweetness in the middle and finishes bitter. Clean and tasty.

A- pours a caramel amber with a thin finger of off white head. Decent retention and great lacing. S- the caramel malts and passion fruit punch are both strong upon opening the can. Molasses, apple cider, brown sugar, prunes, grass, soap and a faint dirtiness also persist. M- medium sticky body with medium burn on the palate. Medium carbonation. T- malts and overripe apples come first. Pine resin and more muddled sugars follow. Tropical fruits and figs start in the middle. Ending is long, dry and bitter. Mostly grass, soap, and citrus.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dear brewers of IPA, please put a born on date on your beer. I have no idea how fresh this beer is. I hope it was a little old, I am rating it nonetheless. Pours a reddish amber with nice white head. Color is too dark for style. Scent is candy piney hops. Flavor is unbalanced with a metallic bitter finish. Body and liveliness are on the money. Can - Received in Trade

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can thanks to OKBeerFan. Pours hazy orange amber with a medium off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly with good lacing on the glass. Aroma is muted pine, citrus, caramel, a bit of dank forest floor. Flavor is fairly sweet, some pine, citrus and dank notes, light bitter. Bit of a lingering bitter finish, but not harsh. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Pretty decent mainstream IPA; certainly no obvious flaws.
