Had from the can once, but this time off draft at wob cap hill. Cascade dominate, resiny, citrus, piney hop aroma. Dark amber color. mouthfeel is silky smooth and just like advertised is assertive with its hop bitterness and flavor, but nicely rounded with malt backbone. Piney and citrus hop flavors are in the foreground with a nice spicy, clove/nutmeg aspect with a solid malt sweetness. 7.5 abv is not noticeable, very Sessionable ipa.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Old can while at Ranch-a-Thon. Aroma is still really nice. Floral hops and citrus together. I was actually thinking this might not be too bad yet. Wrong. Taste is a cardboard and malt mess. Faded hops.

My favorite IPA. Wonderful balance between hops and body. Bitter, but not overly so.

16 oz can poured a orange yellow color with a little head that dissipates quick and leaves good lacing. Nice aroma of tropical fruit and oranges. The taste is similar with powerful hop bitterness. Dry finish. Overall a great IPA that is well balanced.

Can to glass. Pours a clear light amber copper color with a foamy light tan head. Aroma is very pleasant, mostly citrusy tropical fruit hops and a hint of sweetness. Flavor is moderately bitter with lots of citrus. Light in body and very drinkable. Lingering bitter and sweet in the finish. Delicious.
