2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours copper with an off-white head. Aroma of light citrusy hops plus some pale and light caramel malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best IPA.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Fuck, this is horrible. Dented can from Whole Foods Columbus Circle, NYC. Red gold with a massive bloom of heavy-lacing, sugared foam. Nose of chilled watermelon, happy hour Grecian cocktails, Southern Comfort, vomit and vomited Southern Comfort. Ditto flavour, with the tell tale cherry Tunes, elastic band and marzipan notes of cheap hop-free booze. Soggy malt and cooked sugar overload. Tastes like the bastard chimera child of an horrendous red Belgian and English super strength lager. Imagine my disappointment when I realised I paid $5.99 (FIVE DOLLARS NINETY NINE CENTS) for a single battered tin because they rang it through as a multipack. DRINKING EVERY LAST DROP IN PROTEST.

Pounder can. Pours clear orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma smells like sourdough bread. Semi sweet. The taste is awful.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From the archives: From my trip to US. As description says - an easy drinking craft beer - meaning it is watery, thin and less hoppy than most of the IPAs out there. Four pack was one of the most expensive ones, and the fancy design was amusing, but the taste was disappointing. Not worth it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a tall can into a pint glass light amber cloudy golden with a huge thick beige pillow top head.
Scent of caramel and very faint hop
Taste is straight up caramel malty sweet & a just a tad of bitterness at the end telling me that hops was involved but definitely no bite of grassy citrus pine like most IPAs
Carbonation is spot on with an excellent IPA feel to the tongue but why is this so sweet? Almost like the hops were an afterthought here.
Bought this tall boy can 4 pack at Whole Foods for just $5.99. For the price not a horrible brew but I just keep wondering where the hops made in this brew went???

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sporty tallboy can. Huge bone-colored head on a hazy, honey gold brew. I liked the aroma - more of a UK style IPA than I was expecting and you can really pick up the Goldings. Caramel and tangy up front, followed by kumquat and moderate astringency. The flavor didn’t quite deliver on the promise of the aroma. The aftertaste has a ragged and astringent quality to it, with some buttery tones mixed in with the choppy hops. Slightly heavy mouthfeel to me. Whole Foods, Tallahassee.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
1 pint can from Whole Foods. Gold pour with huge fluffy white-ish head. Aroma is sweet grapefruit, resin, spice, pine. Tastes are sweet caramel and floral bitter. Grassy, pine, metallic. Thin medicinal palate. Not completely horrible, but close... something a off-putting in the taste that I can’t put my finger on.

This can definitely be a session beer. Easy to drink and not too hoppy. Exactly how I like my IPA’s!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear edeep orange amber with a 1/2" head and light swirls of lace. The taste never makes it out of the gate - sweet n sour caramel malt is joined by an odd semi-hop bittering that does more to emphasize the malt than bring a balance to things. Not satisfying at all....in fact, one I wasn’t interested in finishing. Not recommended.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
The disappointment started as soon as the can was cracked as it erupted all over the countertop like a volcano. A thick creamy off-white head is the only redeeming quality of this beer. No hop aroma. A dank earthy dirt flavor. Not even close to style.
