Pale golden color with soft lemon and melon esters and a bready malt body. Dry hopped with Centennial and experimental hops from the Yakima Valley. If you like a hoppy IPA, but donít always care for the higher alcohol, try an El Conquistador XPA.

I got one of those giant cans because I like a lot of beer in one canister. Thatís why I liked 40ís in high school. This is pretty good, for what it is. Al respectably low ABV pale. No need to get into the guts of the profile. Itís tasty and refreshing and holds itís own in the style category. Compared to the price of a bomber of the same, itís a clear steal. The fresh taste is pretty profound, making one wonder how the IIPA Shipwreck would fare in a huge can like this. (Mission: please make this happen) Itís also on sale at Costco, which has me pondering the idea of going over there with a pallet jack and stocking up.

hotstuff (4811) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Rated on 12-28-2015 (Bottle) This beer poured a huge foamy, fluffy white head that mostly diminished, light hazy pale golden body, slow rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, tropical fruits, spicy, and pale malt. The flavor is moderately bitter, citrus hops, tropical fruits, and pale malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this is a medium bodied APA. A drinkable beer that is easy drinking and not overly hoppy or bitter tasting. A mediocre APA.

Draught at the Yard House, Honolulu, HI. Clear golden color with a tiny white head. Mild sweet and fruity aroma with lemon and sweet malt. The flavor is lemony and resiny hops, mild bitterness and dryish malt. Drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jokestereo (281) - SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2015
Pours in a hazy golden color with a very thin line of white head that disappear rather quickly. Aroma; Fruity hops, floral notes, citrus and some yeast. Flavours; a little watery, lemon, fruity, yeast and a little malt bitterness in the end. A ordinary beer thatís all. Nothing more.

This was a bit lacking to me in the hops department actually. The flavor was just not all that good. Iíd rather have the Cortez Gold.
