3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a pale amber color with enormous white head that retains well and laces nicely in my glass. Nose has a clean, bready aroma with some citrusy hops to make things interesting. On the palate there is a very nice balance of toasty malt with juicy-fruit hops of the usual variety for IPA’s. Finish has even more citrusy hops and again some of the fresh bready flavors/aromas mentioned earlier. Drinkable for the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz can brought back last week by my buddy Andy off of the big island. Crystal clear dark golden with decent white head that dissapears quickly to a even film that leaves light spotty lacing on the way down. At first pass, the nose is super bland and maybe a touch soapy. Caramel bread, stale spent oranges, a bit of candied orange rind, orang GoJo soap and saltine cracker. It does have some ’creamy’ feel with the carb just right in my book. The taste is better than I was expecting from the nose, but still nothing mind blowing. Light orange pilth with some zest, grass/earthen hops that represent nice dry hopping, more maltiness than I like, and finishes up with some bittering...although it is light. Would I search it out again?...no. Would I drink it again?...sure if faced with limited options or no new beers to experience. However, this beer should in no way be in the 93rd percentile of the style.

Served from a 12 oz can while chilling on North Shore. A full bit hop profile in this guy that leans more towards the earth side with pineapple accents. The bitterness is a bit harsh at time. A fitting brew for the 20+ footers coming in that day!

"Hoppy goodness in a can. Pours a yellow-orange color producing a frothy head and big strands of lacing. Fragrant aroma consisting of pine, grapefruit, peaches and light malt. Mildly bitter, light to medium in body. Drinks quick and is very refreshing. Lots of citrus flavors with sticky evergreen, fresh bread and some caramel. "

Can from CapFlu. Pours a golden orange with nice off white head. The aroma is all hop, very leafy almost grassy. If green had a smell, this would the smell of green. Nice amount of bitterness. This went down very easy. Compares well with any IPA out there.
