3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hmmm... Last time someone said "This is the last IPA you ever drink" I spent two weeks in the poison ward and she took off with the car and the cash... Oh well... Pour from a 1 pt can. Cloudy amber brew with dense tan head. Aroma of citrus, herbal, and floral hops. Taste is sweeter malts at the start fading to a hebal / floral hops finish. A little sour spoilage in the very finish that is off putting. A very nice IPA.

Bizarre. Somewhat resinous...some grain and florals...yet very harsh and soapy. Aftertaste is overkill and harsh. Lacks major balance

16 ox can pours a cloudy golden color with medium head and some lacing. Smells of floral and piney hops. Aroma is the same without much else, except perhaps some malts which add a buttery note. Taste is bitter as expected, and finish is even more bitter. Average body, average carbonatation, average IPA.which I probably won’t try again although I don’t don’t regret buying a 4-pack

Thanks to Pawola22 for sending me this can.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has quite a bit of biscuit malt and the resulting sweetness, as well as some pine and a little bit of orange citrus. The flavor has a lot of toffee and caramel malt in it, with some pine and a hint of grass from the hops. Low to medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours a golden with a full frothy white head. Aroma is very citrus, with grapefruit, orange, pine, caramel, and grape. Grapefruit is the dominant taste with more orange undertones. The citrus really stands out here. The darker aromas are no longer present. Very bitter aftertaste. Not much of the hoppy IPA bite that I was expecting, and more light and smooth than others of this style. Pretty enjoyable overall, but as an IPA, about average for my tastes.

500ml can courtesy of Brian. Slightly hazy orange tan. Thin, off white head. Dry citrus hop aroma. Clean, some toasty golden malt tones and a solid hop bill. A faint touch of butter, but not overwhelming. Overall pretty solid offering, crisp hoppy IPA.

Wonderful, cloudy, amber color. Firm body with average head. Hop aroma was fruity, but hop after taste was just bitter.

coppery with small head. not surprisingly, this is very hoppy -- like a mid abv imperial ipa .slight pineyness. very bitter and the bitterness lingers nicely. not much in the way of citrus, but very full flavored.

Very mild easy drinking IPA. It has all the proper notes but they are just slightly too subtly... Take a note from Surly and do everything in a can BIG!
