Tangerines and spring flowers just ticked my nose. It's got a lovely light copper color with very little head. The flavor is where it's at with this one. Tons of hops bringing honeysuckle and grapefruit right up front and actually finishing all the way through. Only slightly bitter as the hop oils really shine in this IPA. I'm gonna go ahead and say this is the tastiest IPA in the southwest. Yup...I said it. Wait...SoCal isn't considered southwest right?

Growler shared by Terminus at RBWG ’11 (notes). Pours a mostly clear orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma has pine, citrus, grapefruit, dank and floral hops with caramel malts. The flavor has more pine and less floral character than the nose, with enough malt backbone to keep balance. This is just a solid drinking IPA that I wish I had better access to.

Pours deep straw with fluffy white head. Huge grapefruit aroma that I really love. Flavor hits with a nice hoppiness but rounded like it is first wort hopped or something. Super clean just a lingering bitterness. Really a nice IPA from erway. Freaking amazing. Right up my alley what I am looking in am IPA.

Pours a bright golden with a one finger head, white, foamy...falls into spotty lacing quick. Light carbonation. Smells of skunky pine, citrus, sweet malt, gym sock, soap and has some floral notes. Taste is big for the ABV. Love this. Get the pine and skunk upfront...resin, caramel across the middle....some soapy bitterness in the finish. Really like this beer, have had it several times now and can say that it holds up after a month or more in the fridge. Top notch stuff.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can via trade. Nose of real citrus, pine, dank combo. Drank from can so no appearance comments. Must be a 4. Taste is real malty sweet with a bitter pithy kick mid palate that lasts until the end. I saw foam when I opened but this is way malty and under carbonated. Kind of a mess.
Ok. Poured into a pint. Very clear dark yellow with large white head. So there is carbonation. A little better but the malt is just so sweet up front. Would much prefer the malt and bitterness toned down for an IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can extra in trade. Pours a semi opaque orange amber with a decent white head. Smell is cat piss, grapefruit, mango. Taste is grapefruit, malt, and slight tropical fruits. Incredibly smooth mouthfeel, high bitterness. Not sure if this one deserves to be in the top 10 IPAs.

thanks to star raptor for the beer
one pint can
Caramel orange color. Half finger of head that falls to a collar. Good retention to the head.
Bright, vibrant citrus. Lots of grapefruit, orange, and pine with good backing caramel.
Bright and aggressive taste. Bitter but smooth and slightly sweet. Fresh orange, grapefruit and pine.
Good carbonation, oliy and slightly dank but still fresh. Really nice IPA

Extra from blacknyellow20 (BA), thanks man, didnt thing this was going to be anything special, but first wiff, and holy cow thats a lot of delicious hops. Checks computer, wow 100 rating. Man this is citrius hoppy goodness. Taste is not as amazing as the smell but still good. Orange peel, not too bitter, lots of sweet malt. I dont think that the can is not super fresh, but this is a really good IPA. Rate beer claims that this is the best beer made in mexico, i wouldnt disagree with that, also probably better than anything from old mexico.
