Can pour. Somewhat cloudy orangish yellow with white head. Aroma of sweet citrus hops. Creamy smooth with the right amount of malt. Was expecting more with the type of hops but does leave a slight lingering bitterness to chew on.

355mL can, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of strong piney hops, vegetables, and crackery malt. Flavour brings out dry faded piney hops and biscuity malt. Very well-balanced, with a nicely crisp, dry piney finish. Very nice stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can (12 oz). From tryonqc, thanks! Slightly hazy golden/amber with a medium mostly lasting off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is of caramel, spices, tropical fruits, alcohol notes and light citrus presence. Taste is moderately sweet and quite caramel forward with spices, pine, alcohol citrus and light bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Moderately dry finish. Light lingering spiciness. Lack of balance. Too caramel forward. When itís written in big letters "Cascade", Citra", "Simcoe" on the can I think itís not unreasonable to expect some hops. Disappointing.

Laughing Dog India Pale Ale has a very thick, off-white head, a mostly clear, golden appearance, with tiny white specs suspended throughout, a few lazy ascending bubbles, and fairly heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet malts and piney hops. Taste is of the same, with an overriding sugariness, and there is an underlying hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and slick, and Laughing Dog India Pale Ale finishes semi-dry and easily drinkable. No alcohol shows up with this beer. I suggest checking this out. RJT

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Hop and Hound, Bothell, WA; 6.2% ABV
Hazy light amber color. Moderate hoppy aroma, with a grassy accent besides the piney hops. Dry mouthfeel, toffee flavor, a bit papery; strong bitterness and strong resiny hop character, but not as bright and fresh as it should be.

12 oz can. Pours bright gold and a bit hazy. Medium head. Fresh piney hops. Taste is the same with some lemony citric flavors. Not much of a balance here-mostly just a hop bomb. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a hazy copper color with a moderate white head on there. Nose is definitely hoppy, with some floral and grassy bits coming through for me. Taste is nicely light and bitter, but with a maltier backbone that I expected, and some nice toasting coming through. Decent brew.

Can from a trade with Darrel. Thanks! Pours a golden orange with a thick white head and great spider lacing throughout. Aroma is pungent and slightly dank with pine, resin, and fresh cut grasses. The taste is also pungent and dank with fresh pine, weeds, grasses and pasture. Mostly light body and somewhat of a dry finish.
