Poured from a can. Pours a clear tawny color with a nice white head. Aroma of piney hops. Nice citrus, piney hop flavor that is just the right viscosity. Easy to drink, another good one from Oskar Blues.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pale gold with a thick clingy head.
Aroma: Almost wheaty, clean, hops are like sweet tarts candy. Very clean, very hoppy, distinct grapefruit rind aroma.
Flavour: Clean and citrusy hop character, resinous bitterness, almost piney, good balace with malty sweet character.
Mouthfeel: Light body creamy and well carbonated.
Overall: Assertively bitter, resinous hops clean and a little like a pale ale on steroids. Who says you canít get good beer in a can?

A perfect appearance just cause itís in a can. HA. This is definitely an IPA, and a particularly brutal one at that. All hops, piney with no citrus, a bit like green bananas.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can: Poured clear amber with a long lasting off-white head. Aroma was slightly piney. The initial taste was hoppy, which then faded to a caramel and cardboard like malt taste, and then finished with a pleasant soft hop taste. Not a bad beer, but not great.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber body, medium sized bubbles in off white head; Medium sized quite sweet hoppy slightly caramelled nose; Soft carbonation, soft texture, oth very nice, bitter but a little to sweet to be very fresh; Bitter sweet finish to full to be really fresh. Alright beer, not boring at all just a bit out of balance and a bit strangely composed.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2013 Can. Re-rated 2013-03-14. Dark golden/orange color color with an off-white head. Hoppy aroma with notes of citrusfruit, flowers and caramel. Tastes is first a bit sweet then hoppy with notes of citrus, grapefruit, pine, caramel, alcohol, a hint of plastic. The finish is bitter, dry and a bit metallic. Too much alcohol and hint of plastic messes up the drinkability for me.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from beerlando. Aroma of sweeter cereal malt and grassy, citrus and slightly musty hops. Pours full copper with a big white head leaving excellent lacing. Nice APA flavor. Restrained hops and some decent sweeter malt. Medium to full bodied and quite creamy on the palate. Finishes quite crisp and dry. A very sessionable APA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 Clear copper-brown with a large rocky head that lasts. Big caramel, orange, and christmas tree aroma is nice. Spicy resin-citrus tames the big malty caramel taste well. Some nutty, earthy flavors develop in the mix as well. Palate is nearly medium-bodied and smooth. Seems like it could really be an IPA as far as the hop content, but Iím not complaining.
