3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a brownish yellow color with a super thick white head and tons of lacing. My beer was from a 12oz can and was very clear. Aromas are malt and caramel and hops but I canít tell what variety. The taste first hits me as metallic, followed by sweet malted barley and slight hop bitterness. The metallic tasted mostly faded as I drank the rest of the beer thankfully. Itís an OK IPA, a little too sweet for me and I didnít enjoy the metallic taste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz can. Hazy, unfiltered orange-tan. Creamy, steady head. Bitter, piny aroma, some soap tones. The mouthfeel is pretty bland and watery, a poor use of quality ingredients. A mess of an IPA, some lemony tones and an earthiness that brings to mind an APA. Certainly still has a "West Coast" feel, but pretty unimpressive.

12 oz. can that is part of a six pack that I received as a gift from my friend Don. Thanks Don! Pours a hazy golden amber with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first two sips and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma that is filled with fresh orange and grapefruit. The flavor begins with malt and is followed by some fruity citrusy hops. Moderate bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Solid beer.

Orange color pour with a foamy head. Sweet malt and fruit aroma with just a hint of hoppiness. Flavor is much the same. Good brew, just not much of an IPA.

12 oz can from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours hazy dark golden color with off white head. Aroma of floral hops. Flavor of grassy hops with some spiciness and doughy tastes. Medium body with average carbonation. Almost saison-like. Thanks Craig.

Bottle; poured a ruddy amber color with a medium to large off white head. Aroma of earth, bread, must, yeast and bread. Flavor was very earthy with a bit of flowers and bread. One dimensional but ok.

can at bluewater resevoir state park 7/16/10.
amberish color but i donít really care since i wanted to drink it out of the can.
peachy aroma... notes of orange, caramel, earth and a little spiciness.
the flavor is the same... a little too sweet since the hops lack a balance (british). the malt makes it super creamy and rich but also makes it lack the crispness i want in an ipa. 6/3/6/3/13/3.1

Can from Adam, You da man Tooch! Pours a hazy amber with an ebony head. Citrusy hop aroma. Medium bodied with a minerally texture. Pale malt stands behind a juicy and acidic bitterness. Dry finish. Not bad at all

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange pour with a big overstated white head. Seems a bit overcarbed. Fluffy white head stuck around. Aroma was very faint and rather un IPA like. Somewhat metallic with some light citrus and grassy notes. This tasted much better than it smelled. Light sweet bready malts, slight but relevant citrus hops and a dry light bitter finish summed it up. Everything about this brew, aside from the fizzy carbonation was presented in low key fashion. All in all it was tasty and quite refreshing with just a few faults.
