3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 16 oz can with a canning date of 09/28/2016.
Aroma is very hop forward, but with a somewhat old school hop profile. Lots of resin, pine, grapefruit, citrus and a slight, dank, oniony note. Light to medium light cracker malt notes and a hint of alcohol.
Pours a fairly clear, bright gold color with a medium sized, fairly thick and pillowy, white head that shows good retention as it very slowly recedes to the edges where it lingers. Moderately high lacing and small legs.
Flavor has a medium light sweetness with a medium light cracker malt note and a hint of biscuit. High bitterness and a light alcohol spiced note. Fairly high hop flavors with a lot of resin, pine and grapefruit. some lighter citrus and dank notes as well.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a good clean IPA with a strong old school hop profile. Tons of hop character from the dry hopping. Good alcohol and sweetness to balance the bitterness.

Slightly hazy golden liquid with a large foamy white head. Aroma is pine, citrus and exotic fruits. Taste is refreshing with loads of hops. This is all a IPA should be. Great stuff!!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can thx Alex for the gift A: grapefruit, citrusy, melon, orange. Close to 2 months old can App: hazy pale thick white lasting head and great lacing.t/p: med body with long bitter finish. Moderate carbonation. O: it’s not super old but I still feel that fresher it would have score higher. It look really nice and it has close to a perfect texture. Aroma is simply not present enough for my liking. That said I would buy it again not doubt if a fresher can cross my path.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2016 Update: drank another can but this time straight from the can. Much better. I really appreciate it this time. Old rating: 16 ounces 3 weeks old can from trade with JC. Aroma: strong grapefruits (not unpleasant) mixed with a good presence of malt which unleashes mainly caramel aroma. Maybe some citrus (coming from the hop of course) from far behind too but it’s really not dominant here. App: clear golden, small to medium white head, good retention leaving good lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, a tad oily, clean moderate bitter finish. Overall: I was expecting this kind of ipa from this place. Something more balanced, less juicy or I could even say not juicy at all, and also something clean. Good but more like the kind of ipa I enjoyed when I started drinking ipa’s. Now this just feels boring to me.
