From a can pruchased at a loca gas station. Poured dark gold with a nice big head. Aroma is spice and floral hops. Mouthfeel is full and bubbly. Flavor is very good with a lot of citrus and sweet malt balanced perfectly with hop bitterness. This is really good stuff.

Bottle with a big thanks to KieferUGA, who procured this from a trade. Aroma was good with a nice amount of citrus and grapefruit with a good caramel base. Flavor was balanced with a nice caramell backbone. Bitterness had a good amount of bitterness. Really good for the style and glad that I was lucky enough to have this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can from bevmo. Pours a copper color with a big sudsy off white head that had good retention and plenty of lacing. The aroma is strong and hoppy with citrus and pine. Really good nose. The taste is hoppy, smooth caramel, sweet ripe peaches, a bit of vanilla and toffee malts. The mouthfeel is smooth and malty. The finish is short and sweet. Overall: This is one hell of an IPA, and it comes from a can.

12oz can. Poured aggressively with glugs, where’s the vent? Pours dark orange with a moderate sized, fizzy head, decent retention, specks of lace. Smells pretty awesome, very hoppy. Dark citrusy, somewhat bitter, somehwhat sweet, slightly metallic. Tastes of big, caramelly, earthy hops. Starts bitter, finishes sweet. Medium body, good carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz. can. Big, citric hop aroma with notes of pine, grapefruit and orange rind dominating, along with some lighter, gentler toasty malts and floral sweetness in the background. Hazy light-medium amber color with a lasting, fine, uneven head. Flavor is likewise very strongly hoppy and bitter throughout with a far lighter degree of toasted caramel and honeyish malt present, finishing with strong, juicy grapefruit and fresh pine as well. Resinous, oily and relatively smooth palate, body is medium-full. I am almost surprised at how hopped up this is, for some reason. Certainly not complaining, though, mind you...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of Sparky27...Eric, thanks!!! Burnt orange brew with a nice eggshell head that stuck with the beer throughout the tasting. This beer has a considerable amount of malt...caramel, toffee, and brown sugar are perhaps more dominant than the pine, citrus, and lemongrass. Very tasty...and unique for the style.

This reddish copper ale poured from a can with a decent beige head and a floral aroma. There is a delicious caramel malt base overlaid with just the right amount of bittering hops to produce a smooth refreshing flavor.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can courtesy WeeheavySD. Pours a copper amber color with a thick off white head. Nice creamy citrus, pine hop aroma. Taste is chewy citrus hops with a nice creamy malt. Has a nice crispness that makes this a good warm weather beer, very refreshing citrus fruit taste and dry bitter finish. Well done IPA.
