Saw this in my local beer cellar, it was the last can in there and I decided to give it a go as I had been curious for a while. The aroma is very mild citrus with sweet malt coming through. The taste is heavy on the malt, quite sweet and piney but I didn’t pick up on any citrus or tropical flavours, then you are hit with the very bitter hops which kinger long ionto the finish. Not the best IPA around but I am pleased to have tried it.

An IPA that is trying to live up to the big ones of the mainland west coast IPAs. It does a creditable job in its big malty flavor , but lacks the fresh crisp flavored hops the mainland gets from being closer to the source.

Golden yellow with dense white head. Good malt character with little to no unfermented sugars. Hoppy throughout. Slightly malty but mostly piney hoppy finish. Nice hoppy IPA.

P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, long finish.
O- A pretty standard but decent IPA. Tons of tropical citrus on the nose, however that doesn’t translate over into the taste all that much. Pretty piney and bitter.

It is a big swell in deed. Hops galore boys! Bursting with flavor, this is one fine IPA. I had both citrus and pineapple come my way, as well as pine and resin. Ear tingling goodness.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a bright medium orange with a two finger off white head which lingers forever and fades to excellent lacing. Aroma is of citrus, tropical fruits (passion fruit and mango), caramel, pine, and sweet malts. Taste is similar to the aroma but is a bit more robust. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, semi dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a nice, juicy, refreshing IPA that is tastes like what a beer would taste like in a dream set in Hawaii.

One of the best canned IPA’s that I’ve ever had. Hop characteristics were nice but not overpowering, and it went down smooth.
