This was a fairly good IPA. Nothing real crazy about it, good hops and bite. Nice.

On tap at Yard House - Long Beach, August 2014. Golden with a small white head. Quite soft with hops, grapefruit, hay and malt. Easy to drink with a medium bitter finish.

EdKing (1872) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
Can bought for me by my friend Martin in LA. Cloudy rusty amber, white fluffy head. Nose is orange and grapefruit citrous with pine and some boiled sweet barley malt, very tangy orange marmalade, little bit of caramel and white sugar. Taste is piney, lots of orange marmalade, bit of boiled sweet sugar. Bitter, pine and hop leaf citrous although moderately acidic. On the finish it’s slightly subdued on the fruit and bitterness.

mansquito (3387) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2014
LAX can: Pours copper with a nice head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, and resin. Taste is what you would expect from a west coast IPA that is not overly aggressive, but is also not afraid to show its hoppy side. Nice body. Easy to drink. No complaints.

Brenhophead (559) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2014
Small Can into a spig IPA glass. Pours light sunshine/golden with a big think white head. Piney/sherbet in the aroma, mostly resinous pine in the flavour with a subtle sweet malt backing.

jkwood04 (3947) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Big can. Looks amber. Aroma of bitter and floral and lightly piney hops, some caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty standard IPA.

Jado (527) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2014
From 345 ml can. Pours a clear golden amber with a one-finger white head and fine carbonation. Aromas of pine, caramel, lemon, grapefruit and flowers. Taste is light citrus at at the front before a firm pine resin and grapefruit bitterness in the middle. There’s a light caramel at the end along with gentle citrus note. Decent malt backbone holds it all together. Like it a lot.

mkel07 (3391) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2014
Can from The Wine Emporium 210814. Another great looking can from these guys, and the beer is pretty good as well.

ALLOVATE (2410) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2014
Pastel, sunny orange, misty and almost still in appearance with a shortlived, tight, white crown. Piney, resinous nose; quite camphorous and raw with plenty of grapefruit and blood orange coming through. Candyish, bitter, dry, creamy, full bodied, piney and malty sum it up nicely. Has a pleasant toasted malt base upon which layers of citric fruit, bitter, spicy, resinous whole hops and camphorous, pinewood flavours dwell. Good length; dry with plenty of bitterness. Nice body, not cumbersone and very soft in carbonation. Well rounded, fresh, bright and hoppy. This is a devilishly sessionable ale. Enjoyable! (12fl.Oz can, 07/10/14, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

CAN. left in can, floral and citrus nose which comes through in the taste finishing with a refreshing hoppy finish. Sourced Cape Cellars
