3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz. can. Pours a medium thick, well retained, tiny bubbled, light ivory head, with moderate lacing, over a clear amber (SRM 9) body.......nose is heavy pine, resin, citrus peel, light apricot, light allium, mild toasted malts with light floral honey, balance heavily to the hops.......taste is lightly sweet with mild toffee/caramel notes, strong pine, resin citrus including orange and tangerine, slight allium, finishing with a moderately strong, lingering hop bitterness....mouth feel, medium body, moderate alcohol warmth, lingering astringency, medium carbonation. This is a quite typical American IPA, which is hop dominated in both aroma and flavor. The mild allium contribution seems a common fault in these hyper hopped beers, perhaps a bit more malt would hide this minor flaw. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

Overall not my favorite ipa. I don’t know what it is but there is a flavor that is not agreeing with me. I would not suggest this beer to a friend.

Can - well-executed American IPA - floral, citric, and dank - clean, medium sweet malt base allows the hop character to pop but keep it from being overly bitter or abrasive, while still being assertive - my neighborhood brewery (Station 26) is still my go-to for my IPA fix, but this will certainly go in the rotation.

Sehr interessant. Geruch wie Geschmack kaum zu definieren. Fruchtig, nicht tropisch, leicht nach Molasse und Weintrauben! Sehr erfrischend.
Genossen aus der Dose, daher kaum Optik wahrnehmbar. Extrem erfrischend und schnell bitter werdend im Abgang. Leichtes Bubblegum Feeling. Richtig spannend und wirklich innovativ!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can, by way of trade with HenrikO. Cheers Henrik. Liking this box of beer! Dark gold, with a soft haze. Super sticky, film of white. Sweet, ripe summer fruits. Toasted malts. Notes of fresh sawn pine. Some resin. Sweet, gluey hoppage. Taste is chewy sweet, turning piny, resinous bitter. Hop oily, slightly sickly sweet, mouthfeel. Finishes much the same. Smells great. Sweet and piny.

Fresh can -- cheers, Michael! Bitter, a little malty, and satisfying. There’s a great balance between the hop flavor (fruity and especially pine) and the bitterness, which is moderately-high.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a tall can into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a full, somewhat dark clear amber color with a large foamy white head with average retention, and good cling and lacing. Its aroma featured grapefruit and citrus flavors, along with some grainy and grassy hops, and a bit of yeast and light sugary notes. The taste was strongly bitter and grainy, with only a light touch of citrus flavors, and some grassy and earthy components, and a very strong hops presence. It was a very dry beer in the mouth, with a thick mouthfeel and body, along with average carbonation, and a presence of alcohol.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear bright copper like a new penny, under a pillowy white head. Big lovely hoppy nose of fresh floral hops and American dank piney resins with a little orange pith. Lovely and smooth flavor that’s quite zesty and citrusy but also resiny and earthy, a touch piney with some fresh floral tones. Really smooth with a just-right amount of pale malty linger, and a balanced bitterness throughout.
