3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz can, no glass used and no visuals for beer other than "can." The aroma has resiny pine hops and a bit of mildly roasted malts. The taste delivers a good deal of pine hops that lean heavily toward resiny bitterness. Behind the pine hops I get slivers of grapefruit citrus hops as well as a light malt roastiness. This has a pretty nice load of hops and flavor for a 5% beer but it is a bit un-refined as the malts and the hops don’t go all that well together. But if your need is hops then this will work.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Somewhat papery oxidized nose with soft floral and citrus hops, a little biscuit, a little dust. Pours golden, nice clarity, thin head, thin lace. Flavors of soft toasted malts, a little paper, light sweetness, bread, floral hop notes - a little old tasting although it looks like it is dated 5/19/2013. Maybe it is just muted and boring. Anyways, not undrinkable, just "meh", (Jon, 2011).

16 oz can, very cool. Packaged 3.28.13. Pours a very hazy orange with lots of floaties. Smells oxidized immediately. Sweet caramel aroma of hop death, some pine still left over. Flavor is bitter and papery. Can see the potential for a good ipa, but need it fresher.

I got a 4 pack from Vons. I wasn’t sure what I was getting into. Was this a cleverly disguised macro micro? It was on sale and a low abv fit the bill. Was expecting the worst but was pleasantly surprised. Pretty hoppy... Almost Sierra Nevada-ish. Digging it. Probably gonna go buy the rest of the pallet this weekend.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the can (dated 4/18/13). Aroma is nice, clean (almost dry) pine and hop bitterness with complimentary citrus and minor sweet malt that is very much in the background. Taste is mostly pine and balanced hop bitterness but there is also some grainy character and a small amount of malt sweetness. Clean mouthfeel. Very nice, enjoyable IPA and I really appreciate the prominent hop profile with an ABV a smidge under 6%.

Poured from 16oz can from bine and vine. Clear orange. Sticky white head. Lemon and zesty fresh aroma. Yum. The taste is slightly bitter, citrus, bubble gum and overall pleasant. I like it

On tap at City Beer. Large amounts of citrus, dank and earth. Pours a clear yellow-orange with full white head that remains all the way down the glass. Very bitter with orange and sweet malt backbone. Medium-thin mouthfeel with semi-dry finish.
