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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bonus from a recent trade. Nice solid seasonable ipa. I’d drink it regularly if it were my local. Good grapefruit finish with a big caramel malt backbone. Resiny sticky pine give this some heft on the back of the palate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy burnt orange pour with small white head. Aroma of hops is somewhat light and citrusy, melon, and a minor woody quality. Flavor is abrasively bitter, malty backbone, and melon underlying throughout.
