4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can. Pours a somewhat dark burnt orange with a fairly dense off-white head. Aroma is a well rounded mix of citrus, bread, toffee and perhaprs a light dose of grapefruit. Caramel flavor hits first, with plenty of citrus and bitter hop flavor, some toast on the back of the throat, and a finish that mixes the bread and citrus rind hop flavor as well as any pale ale could. So smooth and drinkable but there’s loads of flavor to this beer as well. Thanks jrob!

POured an orange amber, small to medium white, lightly creamy head. Aroma was great; caramel malt, pine and citrus. Palate really nice too; a bit creamy. For the style, quite easy drinking. Hops up front, not overpowering; followed by malt and a crisp/dry finish. Another good one from them

Can from jake65 - thanks! Pine and resin aroma - very hoppy and lightly floral. Lychee and citrus. Clear, vibrant orange body and a creamy, lacing, rocky (beautiful!) beige head. No carbonation visible. Dry, bitter taste, nicely balanced by sweetness. Thinnish body comes off as feeling medium-full. Loads of bready hops leading to a dry, hoppy aftertaste. This is an ideal everyday IPA - balanced and very drinkable, not to mention flavorful. Very happy with this one!

Poured an amberish color with a thick white head and left good lacing. The aroma is of citrus fruits, and full on hops. The flavor is citrusy with some malts and dose of hops in the middle. The bitterness from the hops comes through, but not too strong. It is a medium bodied beer with just right the amount of bitterness. The finish is smooth and clean. One of the best beers I have had out of a can.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can: Pours an orange copper color with a large white head and nice lacing. Nose is hoppy with citrus and florals, some sweetness. Taste is a simple blend of floral hops and malt with some citrus and grassey notes. Creamy and rich on the palate. I foresee taking sixers of this on the next camping trip...

Six pack from Total Wine here in Jacksonville Florida. This has to be the best tasting beer from a can I have had in a long time. Malty, hoppy in aroma and taste, I was thoroughly impressed with this one. Great job.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
An awesomely surprising beer. Full of malt but the hops balance iti to make one of the smoothest beers I have ever had. It’s like an old speckled hen but hoppier.

Can. 12 fl. oz. A clear, amber color with small, off-white head. Aromas of grapefruit and caramel. Medium body with a creamy texture and a long, lingering finish that seems to stick to the roof of your mouth. Flavor is a nice balance of malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness. Very drinkable and very good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A big thanks to theisti for this can. If I could get this in Kansas City, it would be a staple in my fridge. It pours a flat, light brown with a large, frothy, off-white head that diminishes with time. The aroma is all hops, citric and lightly floral. The mouthfeel is light and creamy with a bitter finish. The flavor is dominated by the hops without smacking you in the head. The front is a serious hop hit with a sweet malty middle following. A dry citric-hop kick finishes things off. A very flavorful and drinkable beer. If only all canned beer could taste like this...
