Hoppier than many supposed IPAs. Floral, resinous and citrusy with a malt and grain backbone.

Poured up gold with a really nice head that held on the whole way. Smells of hops and tastes of hops. This is like an IPA but for some reason is not labled as such. Citrus, little pine, small hint at that aluminum from the can. Just wish I could find this in bottle. Beginning to think it is not in bottles.

12 ounce can thanks to errl. Thanks! Pours a clean copper color with a big, fluffy white head of foam. Good retention. Aroma is earthy and herbal. Tastes very clean. The dry hopping really worked wonders here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at BTBF. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a white head. Aromas are of hops: grassy, tangerine, citrus and fruity. Very mild malt structure, light fermentation esters. Hops are show cased. Flavors are grassy, tons of dry hop resin character, citrus, herbaceous, tangerine. Grainy and dry. Lively carbonation, low body with a dry and crisp finish. I’d definitely pick up a few cans of this if it were locally available and fresh.

Can poured a hazy gold with a lingering ring of off white foam. Aromas of straw, tea, grassiness and citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of straw, grassiness, grapefruit zest and tea with a crisp lightly bitter lingering citrus finish.

Nice orange gold with a bit of lacing. Some citrus and floral hops on the nose...thinking simcoe dry hopping? Nice malt core and bitter finish. Solid canned IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can poured into a footed pilsner/flute glass. Appearance is a hazy golden yellow color with a frothy white head. Aroma is very bready, evidence of dry-hopping, citrus and grapefruit. Flavor is hoppy, dry and grassy bready. Finishes not very dry on the finish though which gives it a good palate. Much better than the original.

What a delicious brew this was. I was expecting something a little bigger than regular fireman’s 4, but this really matches the brewery’s commercial description, and then some. Monstrously hoppy and pungent in both aroma and taste, with a bold body and ample carbonation. Highly recommended. My only disappointment is that so far I’ve only found it at the brewery. I may have missed what supply of it came to my town until next year. Had I known of its existence I would have sought it out.

Amazing. Nothing like the fireman’s four. Thank God. Super hoppy. Not bitter. Keep it up real ale!

Now that’s more like it. This is a vast improvement on the original, which was very meh. Now this does not act like a blond in many respects. The boquet is one of many hop varieties: citrus, piney, floral. The color looks like a standard golden or blond with a white head. Heavier palate with good carbonation. Taste was more like a pale or IPA. The malt presence provided a nice backbone for the hops, which kept coming. Decent malt note that had some straw flavors, although faint. Great improvement, just not sure how true it is to style.
