COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our West Coast inspired India Pale Ale is rich in flavor and abundant in citrus, pine, and floral aromatics created through a wonderful infusion of Citra hops. Completely refreshing and possessing a medium mouthfeel, crisp bitterness, and nearly balanced malts. Finishes dry with a head that creates beautiful lacing down the entire glass. A truly inspired and coveted IPA.

gururyan (640) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Poured from can into snifter. Wonderful burnt orange, medium head and lacing, classic west coast aroma, but the finish...the finish is not good. Lingering bitterness that coats the tongue. Best to have chips and salsa nearby. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pine, berries and hessian like new carpet. Murky brown in color, but the head is nice and fluffy. Bitterness is coupled with a sturdy malt backbone that offers some flinty, dry bitterness. Very enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Dark copper/amber with medium beige head. Aroma of malt, biscuit, and light citrus and pine hops. Medium body, strong resinous hop bitterness, moderate malt body, and a bitter finish. Citra hops not really noticeable.

ChrisSc (369) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2015
12oz can into tulip. Minneapolis. Pours Amber in color. Mostly transparent. Lots of white head with very nice lacing. Aroma: Really strong paper/oxidized. Piney hops. Some citrus. A bit metallic. Malty. Taste is medium-high bitterness. A touch of sweetness. Medium body. Long finish, but very oxidized taste. This would be a pretty decent beer, but it is so badly oxidized.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt amber color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a good thirty seconds. Messy lacing stuck nicely around the glass. The smell had a decent blend of sweet caramel malts to bitter citrus hops. The taste was divided a bit as the bitter citrus came and went through the caramel malts. It didn’t seem to combine as well. A light citrus aftertaste bled into a dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a dry feel running over my tongue. Decent sessionability. Overall, well, if anything, everything seems to be there, mostly balanced but somewhat not blending right in the taste. Is this old? Wish there was a date somewhere on the can.

blankboy (6415) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2015
[Can (12oz)] Pours a deep orange-amber with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Some lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, piney as well, along with pale malt, tropical fruit and a light vegetal note. Flavour follows: Citrusy, piney and fruity along with a long big bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Pretty good.

Braudog (5965) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Can. Rusty amber color with just a thin head, but pretty good lacing. Woody and gritty with a rich caramel malt backdrop. Chewy like halloween candy. (#5940, 3/8/2015)

Had this one a few days ago and noted it in my personal record of beers. So as the notes go, "Has mostly a pine and floral hop thing going for it. Would have been better in a bottle especially since they had to not only put it in CAN but one of those pull the whole top off type CANs that I hate. Still a good IPA." So due to the type of CAN, overall not so hot but the beer in it is still good.

Beaver (1404) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 27, 2015
12 oz can. Pours clear copper orange with a medium creamy off white head that retains fairly well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet soapy malts with some fruit and stinky, resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malts (slightly biscuity crystal) and fruit with a big resiny, tarry bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a decent IPA, just not my thing. I’m not a huge fan of the biscuit malt and the tarry hops.
