16oz can-rich tan-dk amber. A-resin, doughy-med malt. T-follows. Carbonation is a bit soft, still a nice drinking beer.

From a tall boy can to a pint glass, a good looking glass of beer indeed. Well it has hops and it’s making me happy so it lives up to it’s name. Very easy drinking, has a nice taste, and in a can. Serve ice cold.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Hazy, thick, in no way filtered amber-orange color. Rather straightforward as far as US IPAs go, with a nice depth of malt and hop balance. A sweet, sandy caramel malt upfront tone is washed away in a sea of smooth, earthy, green hops. Somewhat clean in it’s lack of alcohol taste, sticky and sweet malt and hop residue. This IPA nails it, classic new school taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy, light amber color with a diminished head of tiny bubbles forming a lid and a nice sheet of lace. Initial burst of fresh hops slowly gives way to some caramel and floor malt scents. Hops continue to stay in the background, but do not always require full attention. Moderately sweet. A floral hops presence. Some caramel and dough flavors creep in. A very light fruitiness. Call it east coast or traditional, I like it. Perhaps it leans toward just being a pale ale, but it doesn’t show it’s strength. Balanced and drinkable.

pours a beautiful burnt orange with minimal white head. Not a strong aroma, though does have a hint of caramel, and just simply smells hoppy. First sip left a strong bitter aftertaste, but quickly became less bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mildly hazy orange with a thin foamy head, abundant lacing and very little carbonation. Aroma of citrus hops, caramel malts, and mild floral hops. Flavor is more of the resin side with some grapefruit and citrus hop notes, subtle floral hops and caramel. Heavy body with some mild carbonation. Pretty good.

I was drawn to this beer by its packaging and a review on Facebook. Although this is a decent ipa it was nothing special. For the $12 price tag I feel that there are much better ways to spend my money.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to nuplastikk: Pours a transparent deep golden amber with a wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh piny grapefruity hops and some sweet caramely malt. Starts with pretty good fullness and sweet toasty pale malty notes with a nice resiny hop balance before a drier, crisp bittersweet finish. An enjoyable IPA.
