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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fresh can poured into a nonic pint. Pours a nice golden amber with a thick white head. Aroma of grass, lemon, a bit of soap. Taste is a blend of sweet malt and big bitter, grassy hops. The sweetness is a bit much, making things a bit unbalanced. Otherwise pretty easy drinking. Nice sweet, slightly resiny finish.

16oz. Can. Pours amber, fizzy and little to no froth. Taste reminds me of summer citrus flavors. Palate is lightly bitter and somewhat flat. The appearance is perfect in color and blend. Good beer overall

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz can from Coconuts (Evergreen) into a globe glass. Orange and slightly hazy with a sticky white head. Aroma of spruce, resin, grass, floral notes, earthy hops and light fruity notes (citrus, tropical). Similar flavor, pretty bold hop bitterness and light malty sweetness. Medium body, crisp and pretty clean with a lingering finish.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can @ MJ’s. Amber pour with a short lived white head. Cabbage, grapefruit, and orange on the nose. Caramel malt sweetness, oxidized/stale hops, and pine. Candy sweetness. Fairly watery flavor, but somewhat sweet. Tea, grass, oxidized hops, and a weird vegetal aroma.
