3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nose is pleasant, not over powering hoppy. Color is a translucent orange. Taste is mostly of pine and bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Living in Portland has made me spoiled. This ipa makes me begging for less Caramel and more hops. This beer is like training wheels for a serious full bodied ipa. FG has a lovely pale ale but if you are looking for a ipa that is a complex, complete beer, I recommend oakshire or Bridgeport hop czar.

Based on the average rating on here.....I don’t think this IPA gets enough credit because it comes in a can. This sucker is nice! Who new good IPA could come in a can?! Seems a bit overpriced for a 4-pack of canned beer....but if you do the math, at 7.5% it’s not a bad value.

Can. A big and bitter India Pale Ale. Solid Bitterness throughout. Heavy grapefruit and other citrus flavors. Crisp. Malty flavors in the background that do a nice job of balancing out this brew. Dry finish with a strong bitterness that lasts for a while. Tasty.

A bitter beer. Darker in color for an IPA. It is a smooth tasting beer, but seems to be lacking in flavor.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks, scrizz! This was a tasty IPA. Warm orange with a pale yellow head. Lots of interesting flotsam and jetsam. The particles seem to hop-colored. Citrus aroma with a juicy citrus taste. Bitter-dry finish. Nice!

Juicy balanced earthy lime skin hoppy nose. Dark orange / tarnished copper, creamy pale tan head, chunks of yeast remain suspended. Medium toast body, orange peel character to the hoppy finish.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2011 This is an exceptional IPA. This beer has a smooth and building hops tone... the 97 IBU then becomes very apparent. The aroma is classic Cascade hops

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can: Orangish caramel, thick, lots of sediment at the tail end of this can, large foamy off-white head, its even orangish, with nice lacing. Soft sweet citrusy nose. Smells inviting! Wow, very smooth hoppiness, pleasant to drink. Flavorful without being overly bitter. Malt aspect is very soft, but not grainy or earthy at all. This one is clean, flavorful, semi-sweet, with a nice amount of bitterness. Body and mouthfeel moderate to full. This was a very nice surprise. One of the better IPAs I have had in a while.   Nice work there guys, simple, tasty, and clean!

Thanks to daveytheformer for the can. First pour was much cleaner than the second. Loads of floaters and spent yeast. Hazy orange pour with a fluffy off white head and drippy lace. Aroma is very piney with caramel and grapefruit notes. Very resinous and piney on the verge of sprucy. Decent just a little dirty towards the bottom. Stll good thO
