12 oz. can. Poured clear light brown color. Hop with some citrus notes. Light body. I like the bite/fruit combination in this. Pretty balanced but not much going on here. I like the cans though.

12oz can via 4pack from Spirits Rt 166. Poured a good looking mostly clear golden nectar body under a smaller foamy way off white head. Aroma is too sweet, sweet breads, amber malts, older tangerine, dough. Medium body with bubbly carbonation and a bitter dry finish. Flavor is citrus rind, grain, some dry orange slices, touch of earth. Mmmm itís okay at best.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Nose sweet caramel with base, low-slung PNW hops, but a nice doughy counterbalance. Pours rich orange, clear with golden undertones, light carbonation, dense and rocky beige head. Good lace. Taste lightly sweet but thatís overtaken by very effective medium bitterness and medium-strong resin, has some nice minerally Pilsner-like bite, pine. Fruity/floral taste is a caress rather than a sledgehammer. Watery light body, not super crisp, but still refreshing. I like how itís moved closer to a lager-hybrid, and I like how sessionable the flavor is. Bitterness is a bit hard and inflexible, though not at Jever levels.

Pint at standard tap, orange hazy appearance with small head that didnít last too long. Aroma an flavor is pine, oranges, malt, and grain. Has enough citrus to go down smooth but a little grainy and homebrewish in the finish. Still one of the better manyaunks I have had to date.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2014 Not quite a session beer, but it drinks like one. The aroma is packed with Apollo or similar hops. The flavor is a bit mild with subtle hints of grain and a very dry bitter finish. This beer is crisp and easy to drink.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
No canning information.
Appearance: The body is hazy with an amber-orange hue. A short white head rises from the body, despite a hard pour, and it quickly settles into a sparse coating with foamy edges.
Aroma: The aroma is prominent with floral tones, grapefruit and orange with a spicy and sort of cheesy edge to it. Old hops? Or maybe the combination of the malts with the hops? Itís a weird aroma.
Taste: The malts are noticed first, contributing a mild sweetness. Progressing from there into the weird aroma I got into flavor form. Itís an odd mix of floral and toast with grapefruit, but this odd flavor I have no idea how to describe it. The finish is dry and sort of unpleasant.
Palate: Crisp and full-bodied.
Overall: This is not a pleasant IPA, there are some weird flavors going on here that are off-putting. I had one the other night and didnít get these flavors so Iím not sure where they are coming from since my glass is very clean. Itís not pleasant though and I donít want to finish the beer.
