3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
16oz Can. The pour was a hazy reddish orange with an average (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that was mostly lasting, reducing to a thin cap with good sheets of streaky lacing.
The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, pine hops and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit and orange peel) and a light fruity ester.
The taste was mildly malty and a tad sweet with a hint of caramel and a slight fruitiness early on, and then become moderately hoppy with shot of grapefruit and a bitter citrus peel finish. The flavor hung on for a good long time proceeding the swallow with a bitter citrus peel taste left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was just past light in body and extremely dry in texture with a carbonation that was just past medium.
Overall this was a very tasty IPA, with a strong bitter hoppy presence that was offset nicely by a mild fruity sweetness...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz can from Coral Bay in Greeley. Pours a coppery orange with a white head leaving some spots of lace. Aroma has sweet fruits, citrus, pine and caramel. Taste is of caramel, spicy spruce, bitter grapefruit and a lot of resin. Medium bodied and sticky. Finishes long and bittersweet. A very solid ipa.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can via trade with brokephibroke. Hazy copper body, thin clumping beige head. Muddled bitter, catty nose. Light body, bitter and muddy with hints of citrus peel but mostly catty floral elements. Drinkable but unremarkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
1 pint pours a hazy copper with a slap in the face of hops. I had a bit of can taste in my mouth too.
Average IPA. Low ABV for an IPA and average taste.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I LOVE this beer! Named appropriately with the familiar aroma of some kind bud upon the pour. Cloudy brown color with very little head. Great robust flavors with a resin and floral hops flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Let this one warm up a bit to develop its full potential. Not balanced at all, just straight forward hops. I think the brewer could either pump up the ABV or cut the hops and ABV to improve this,

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From can. Pours a dark copper with a definite red hue. Hardly any head. Nose is very pleasant but very much subdued. Some nice lacing and just a few tiny bubbles. Taste is gritty and blunt. Peculiar aftertaste. I didnít expect a great deal from this--anything that has that much shit printed on the can should be approached with a certain degree of skepticism. Average.

Lives up to itís name: A one-dimensional resin-bomb. Clean, crisp finish, however. Wish it had a bit more complexity.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from can into snifter, hazy burnt orange with minimal head. Aroma is a bit dank, too be expected. Not bad, not bad...initial taste is decent, the it slowly spirals down. Not very lively, interesting beer actually. I canít decide if itís good or not so good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nothing special here. Nose os of resinous hops. Mouthfeel is light and the malts dont seem to really meah iratch the hops. Meh
