12 ounce can thanks to Brian. Slightly malty IPA with a nice hop presence and a bit of citrus in taste and finish. Nice.

Breath taking, the aroma jumps out of the can, itís a East Coast IPA, brewed by an incredible homebrewer gone pro. Love the hop bitterness itís assertive by restrained by the malt, great hop bitterness that lasts long into the finish.

From a can. A clear amber body with a nice white head that had good retention and some lace. Initial aroma was of decent caramel malts, that was meet by a mix of pine and tropical fruit notes. A mild sense of grapefruit. Flavor had a nice assertive hop flavor. Grapefruit hops were restrained which for me is a good thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Battleship. Pours a deep dark golden color. Aroma is of floral hops, grapefruit, citrus and malts. Taste is of hops, pine, bark, grass and barley with a little resin. A little bit on the carbonated side. Leaves a dry hopped malted taste. Itís always good to help the little guys.

Draft. Pours murky brown with thin white head that lingers. Mild hop aroma with little carbonation. Nice hop bite but not particularly complex. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An attention getting citrus floral aroma. Hazy amber body on a healthy one finger head that lingers to quarter inch or so. Bitterness grabs you at first. feels peppery on the tongue with carbonation. Leaves a sour taste on my tongue. Seems to finish with a whimper though after itís stellar start. Not bad overall. Good enough to have again.

Can, thanks WillRunForBeer! Intense fresh citrus and floral aroma. Cloudy amber pour with head that leaves good lacing. Medium mouthfeel with grapefruit rind, floral, and pine flavors. Good malt backbone with a moderately bitter finish.

12 oz can, thanks to Willy for sharing! Golden amber pour, aroma of pine, tropical fruit, and honey. Nice balanced sweetness up front, very crisp and punch of bitter hoppiness to boot. Wish I had acess to this as I would drink a lot of it!
