3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2011 A hazy, orange amber color with a lacing, sustaining, bone-colored head. Aroma of cotton candy and big American hops that are resiny, piney, and somewhat herbal. The palate is definitely an IPA. Big malt sweetness tempered by a long hit of hop acidity, lots of Munich malt flavor and tons of American hop flavor. This is very tastey.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Can) Pours hazy amber. Fantastic (exotic) fruity, piny, citrusy hop aroma with some malt. Smooth piny and citrusy hop mouthfeel with grassy notes. First all the lovely sweet fruityness and then a not to aggressive bitter hoppyness. Silky, allmost buttery aftertaste with rasiny hints. Small to medium body. A great example of how you can punch out a lot of aromas and flavour from hops.

Canned. Beautiful red colour. Good citrusy and flowery hoppy aroma. Also in the flavour there are citrusy notes (grapefruit) and generally hops are dominating in this beer. Medium body: Long pleasant and lingering bitter finish.
I love American hops.

My beer of choice while attending a NASCAR event. No glass allowed, then bring a can. Big fluffy tan head when the tab is pulled back. Wonderful pine aroma. Smooth citrus flavor. A great APA that is much better than most IPAs.

Beautifull cloudy orangish amber brew with major huge foamy white head. Huge aroma of citrus and bitter sweet grapefruit. Heavy brew, bready, grain kind of bitter hoppy flavor. Pretty satisfying.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tastes great, even though from a can. Lots of flavor, perhaps even more flavor than average pale ale, but very drinkable.

I’m not sure how this doesn’t get higher ratings. To style, its as good as it gets and its in a can no less. I’m guessing that if you threw a Stone or Three Floyds label on this and put it in a bottle and charged $40 a case for it, that the ratings would be higher. The beer has the malt and the hops but neither is overdone like alot fo the IPAs these days. Bitterness is medium with a great american hop flavor and aroma. The head was froathy and simply a thing of beauty. Its really good stuff...
