Pour, aroma, head, flavor! It’s what I expect from an IPA. Not the best, but real good!

Can thanks to Brian! Pours crystal clear orange with a medium creamy off-white head that dissipates slowly with good lacing. Aroma is pine, spruce, leaves. Flavo rid light sweet, medium bitter, a bit of grapefruit on top of the pine and spruce. Medium body, a bit harsh.

My first from the great state of Nevada. I like it. It's got a nice crisp hoppy flavor.

arminjewell (5994) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz can, hazy orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of butter, cardboard, hints of slight grass, orange, marmalade, caramel. Taste is a mix of cardboard, grass, orange, caramel, hints of a mix of butter, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter.

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Can with friends. Yellow appearance with a lasting white head. A bit of cardboard, lemon, and earth in the nose. Moderate sweetness. Pretty high bitterness. A little bit of toast, quite a bit of grapefruit, pine, and chewy malt. Kind of old but not very good anyhow.

jbruner (2135) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Thanks to Wittales in the local 3.14 swap. Pours a clear golden orange from the can with bubbly off-white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma is light, but resinous citrus from the heavy cascade and a faint sweet maltiness. Taste is bigger, but a hint of soapy middle, bitterness takes over and lingers. Soft carbonation, good balance, minimal booziness, not bad.

Bottle @ America Strikes Back, Ulfborg. Pours hazy light amber with small white head. Clear aroma of hops, with notes of fruit and citrus. Intense, bitter, hoppy flavour, with subtle, sweetish fruity notes, ending on a dry and acidic note. Bitter aftertaste. Decent.

DocJitsu (826) - Florida, USA - APR 28, 2014
Pours a cloudy, orange-golden cool with a large white head. Biscuity, citrusy, sweet malt with disproportional and poorly balanced harsh hop. Flavor and aroma are the same. Sticky texture.

This beer has a nice golden hue color , the alcohol comes in at a 9.3% which actually does not punch you in the face it is well hidden in the scent of piney spruce trees a slight hint of citrus and grapefruit rhine .
