3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz can into a pint glass.
Pours clear amber with a very large and very durable white head. Plenty of sticky lacing is left behind.
The hop aroma is not particularly attractive but the flavor is good. Moderately bitter and hoppy for style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange with a white head. Aroma is powerful hops and nothing else. Pine and citrus with candied tropical fruits. Medium body. Comparatively, the flavor is a bit restrained in the hop arena but still a major player. Background malts show thru a little here, though. Clean, bitter. Good IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can poured. Pours a golden orange color with a thin foam head. Sweet, juicy hops aroma. Interesting IPA here. Not an ordinary IPA by any means. Slightly thicker, oily body with a lot of citrus juice like flavor. A lot of hops thoughout with a barely funky citrus, piney finish. Overall I enjoyed this. Love the big hops. Good IPA.

10/21/14. Bottle. Solid IPA. Nothing out of the ordinary. Nice nose with a solid malt backbone. No over the top hop notes.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Miramar Beach, Fl - Chan’s Wine World - 12 oz can. Sparkling, medium copper colored pour, light off-white head. Aroma has somw overwrought too much crystal malt funkines, some wort. Flavor has that same out of balance date-like crystal malt funkiness, just a brief touch of citrus bitterness. Mouthfeel is too tangy and leaves a ad taste in your mouth. Have not been overly impressed with this brewer to date.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a hazed copper with a white head. Aroma is sweet, papery, and woody. The taste is mostly sweet and papery. The can isn’t that old, so I’m surprised it has staled so quickly. Medium carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Hazy amber pour with a nice 1 finger head that fades away very slow and leaves great lacing. Aromas are candied apricot, caramel, oranges, and light pineapple. Tastes juicy and sweet, especially up front. Hint of bitterness in the finish. Apricot, oranges, and caramel mostly. Some cooked vegetable too. Medium body. Nice oily mouthfeel. Either this is old or it’s just not hopped enough. It’s like drinking oily, sugar juice.
