Can. Pours a somewhat hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is definitely hoppy, with some grass and citrus elements to it. Taste is moderately bitter and has a slightly toasty bite to it. Pretty drinkable.

12 Oz can pour. Pours a light copper color with a heavy pine aroma. A bit of a rye like finish with a hop presence. Maybe I’m crazy. Slightly bitter finish. Not a standout, but still good.

Reid (1946) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 23, 2014
12 oz single purchased from Capital Market in Salem. $1.70 Pours a slightly murky dull orange colour with a nice sized thick and frothy off white head. Fruity, citrus aromas mainly with some light caramel malt backing,cirus hops resemble orange peel and some lemon zest. Actually OK. Taste the hops are more aggressive away from the citra and to the cascade and Chinook..malts still strong but barely contain the exuberance of the hopping. Nice mouth feel the raucous carbonation leads to great drinkability.ery nice can of beer here! V

The smell balances nicely between bitter piney hops to caramel malts to combine in an earthy sort of way. The taste is bitter and sweet but at separate times. However, it does lean more towards the bitter side. There is a decent bitter piney aftertaste that ends leading into the same finish. On the palate, it sits about a light to medium with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seems to be toned down in this one as it doesn’t seem to display a lot of the normal harsh characteristics of an AIPA.

Pours a hazy Amber copper decent creamy head. Aroma Is citrus bread but aroma is faint. Taste follows the aroma with mild hop bitterness and a bit of spiced. Very smooth drinking and kind of silky.

ben4321 (4094) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Location: Can at Beer Culture, 8/11/14

Aroma: The nose is tropical fruity hops, some earthy notes, and a bit of spice
Appearance: This one pours a clear light amber color with an inch or so of white head on top
Flavor: Tastes much the same, hoppy and fruity, pine comes through in the flavor for a bitter finish
Palate: The body is medium, it has a clean feel, and a long, pretty dry finish to it
Overall Impression: I liked this one. A very nice mid-ABV type of IPA. Not quite session level low ABV, but low enough ABV to be sessionable (if you know what I mean).

DSG (6337) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 22, 2014
Can shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Hazy amber with a big white head. Aroma of malt, a bit of fruitiness and some citric hops. Flavor has sweetish malt, mild citric hops and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied. Very mild but decent and enjoyable.
