3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Straight from the can to my mouth, so lets just give it a 3 for appearance.resious pine needle bomb. A little husky grain and caramel sweetness action in the nose, but for the most part the beer’s character is dominated by sticky sappy pine needle hop oils, etc. Typical resin bomb. Meh, not my thing, but better than most of the ’nano’ canned ipas of recent. Certainly better than that rye diacytal bullshit Renegade canned. At least this is fairly clean, no low fill, and properly carbonated. Overall, crank yanker isn’t bad just boring, not my kinda hop action.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
1pt can poured into a Shaker at 40°. Color is a hazy yellow with a hint of orange. Carbonation is mellow giving a thin white head. Aroma of malt, honey, grapefruit and a touch of pine. Medium body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor is slightly sweet with a fruity note of pineapple and grapefruit then a bit of pine comes in with a mild bitterness. In the after taste the fruit hangs on with the sweet and bitter balancing each other out. Overall this is a great IPA, a bit more on the sweet side than most but very well balanced and it goes down easy. Also it’s priced right at $10.99 for a 6pk of 16oz cans.

10 oz at Historians. This is a rich copper color with a tall white head. Nice hoppy aroma, really smells like Amarillo. Plenty of melon, grass and citrus comes through. The palate is sturdy, but not too dense or sticky. Even keeled assertive hop bite comes through. Pleasant American hop bite throughout with a medium sweet malt body to balance. This is a pretty big IPA and a competent take on the style.

From the tap, the pour is crystal clear, dirty blond in color , aroma is hoppy, taste is gentle with citrus notes with a hop forward hit and hoppy finish, a little sweetness to balance the hops, good overall IPA from the tap.

Had while skiing in snowmass out of a can. Even through the small can opening could smell the floral hops coking through. Very smooth, drinkable IPA, cascade hops really pushing through, had some body to it as well. Would drink this often if it were near me!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz can. Pours slightly hazy copper gold with a medium frothy white head that goes to a thin film and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet sugary tropical fruits.
The flavor is sweet juicy fruits with some resiny piney hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, very sweet and fruity IPA. A little too sweet for me.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from tallboy to glass. Dark straw hue with frothy white head. Aroma is orange peel, pine, straw, caramel, lime. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and soft carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet initially with an citrus oil bitterness in the following and extending into the finish. Overall this is a decent shelf IPA but isn’t too terribly complex.
