4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can: Pale copper pour with a light haze, creamy sand color head. Nice thick lacing. Sweet aroma of citrus and caramel, a little piney too. The taste is where this beer comes through for me. Very flavorful hops. Mostly florals, but pine and citrus swirls around too. Malt stays in the background and it finishes very well. Smooth throughout, seemless comes to mind. Scoots well past very enjoyable and right to excellence.

Can shared at a tasting at the new Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Ruben for this can! Hazy orange with a bubbly white head. Hoppy aroma with lots of tropical fruits and some weed. Very bitter flavor, hoppy, fruity and piney. Medium-bodied. A wonderful IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
16oz can with an apparent can date of 12/3/12? Thanks a lot to GHB for sending this my way. Orange color, great head, sticky lacing. Smells like pine, pungent, dank, stanky good. Flavor is bitter, citrus, lemon, a hint of malt. Overall, very solid hop bomb and is really right up my alley as far as IPA’s go. I might even say this is west coast style but I’m not sure, I’m no expert.

Pint cans, RBWG, thanks Erway for brewing and sending these! Pours a hazy yellow orange with a steady fizzy white head, good lace throughout. I really like this beer. Its less aggressive than many of the tasty ipa’s coming out these days, but the nose and flavor are still right where I want them to be. Lots of citrus, floral, light tropical notes. Very nice balance that leans on the hoppy side but as I said, not as aggressive and has a nice soft carbonation. Lovely.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 2, 2014 Can from RBWG. Pours a clear copper from the can with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave thin lace. Aroma of funky west coast hops, piney and resinous, catty. Taste follows, but more mellow as you drink more and a drinkable balance. Mellow carbonation, no real bitterness, but still really hoppy, good stuff.

16 oz can to taster at RBWG. Looks good; orange with sticky white lacing. Smells and tastes good too; nicely hopped with citrus notes. Good on the palate. An excellent example of the style.
