Six pack of cans picked up from the Amaco by my hotel. Once the can is opened, some foam comes out the top. Donít worry moní itís no infected. Could not tell u what it looks like since it was enjoyed in can form. Nose has light resin. Taste is balanced, maybe a small fraction to the bitter side. Some malt sweetness prevails, resin. Medium body. Well done.

Big Frothy white head. Golden color. Big caramel malt and grapefruit notes. Medium full body. Hoppy with lots of citrus. Decent aggressive bitter finish. Nice west coast IPA.

mjg74 (2569) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Canned. Pours a hazy golden/orange color. Huge head. A bit too much carbonation. Some sediment floating about. Sugary sweetness with a strong hoppy aroma. Well hopped. Spiced hoppiness up front. Some maltiness with a hint of sweetness. The excessive carbonation hurts.

Bottle. Copper pour with a large pillowy head. Taste is bold hops, pine, dough and citrus. A nice, somewhat boozy finish. Nice.

Fashionistador (1) - USA - NOV 7, 2014 does not count
Very floral and juniper like. Very hoppy, but somehow still light and refreshing. And for some strange reason, you can drink a truckload of this stuff and not be hungover the next day. My favorite IPA.

slowrunner77 (6160) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 13, 2014
very nice hop complexity in this beer that made it a step above the average IPA. Having it fresh at the source doesnít hurt the hops either :)

BuckeyeBoy (2896) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 11, 2014
On tap at Bend pub. Pours out a hazy golden topped with a white head. Nose is nice super tropical fruit floral hops and a nice malt end. Taste is also very nice tropical fruit pine citrus caramel sweetness and a nice end.

Light amber color with a nice large head. Aroma of pine needles and hops. Bitter mostly with some sweet malts. Good but not terribly memorable.
