4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16 oz can. The first aroma to hit these nostrils after cracking this open is a resinous hoppy dankness wafting out of the canhole before I even poured it into my Duvel tulip. Pours hazy golden with a large white head with good retention. Taste is bittersweet and not quite as nice as the aroma let on. Nice hoppy flavor but not quite what I was expecting considering the aroma. It has a pleasant candy sweetness without it becoming cloying, though. Prickly carbonation, medium body. Nice IPA overall.

16 oz single can from "Lifesource" Salem OR.
Cloudy orange IPA, with a large thick,tight bubbly off white head.
Spicy ,resiny,grassy hop aromas..quite fresh or so it seems.
Taste is the same but with dank resiny hop taking the forefront.
Slight lemon aspect also.
Good thick yet drinkable palate..low carbonation.
Nice enough IPA typical of the PNW style

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz can, consumed at home alone after fighting with my toddler to just go the hell to sleep -- a bitter IPA is just what Iím in the mood for. Pours hazy orange-ish amber with creamy head, leaving behind loads of lacing. Aroma is hugely piney. Some pineapple/grapefruit citrus in there for backup, mingling with just a bit of caramel. Taste is an explosion of resinous bitterness with just enough malt beneath to remain pleasant. Big lingering dry, bitter finish. Medium body, average carbonation, creamy texture. Overall: This is a clean, big and bitter resinous IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very hazy honey-orange with a ton of lasting off-white head. Aroma of moderately fruity citrus, floral hops, a tad of pine and caramel. Flavor is bitter floral hops with moderate malt sweetness and bitter finish. Despite all the foam, it feels a little flat.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Clean light orange body with a firm and fluffy white head. Looks very inviting.
N: Pine, spruce and earth, though thereís not a really heavy dropping here. Some tangerine and pineapple.
T: Decently bitter. Has a noticeable malt backbone, but itís got a stinging sharpness from the hops that isnít tamed.
M: Very dry and palate scraping. Fluffy and full mouthfeel.
O: A bitter power beer thatís middle of the road for a style for me. I expect a lot more from these three. Itís clean and well made, but itís not terribly interesting.
