March 27, 2013 - on tap at bavarian lodge. Light golden orange pour with some head. Floral and citrus hops in the aroma. Taste was consistent with aroma, but also had a bit of spice. Finish was well balanced and clean.

Can at RAT XII. Aroma is nice from the can with a nice dank hoppiness that is subtle. Taste is more pine than fruit. Nice beer from a can and nice fresh hop finish.

Can. The pour is very light. The aroma is mostly hops. The taste is filled with hops, and a lot of citrus. A very refreshing ipa, and not overly bitter which I like. Seems like an ipa I could enjoy in the hot summer months.

Poured from a 12 ounce can. Lours a translucent copper with a white head of foam. Aroma has clean herbal and grapefruit notes. Taste is a juicy sweet with a bit of drying cotton candy and crystallized Ginger. Nice stuff.

12oz can poured into glass. IPA out of a can, how can one go wrong? Nice hoppy aroma, more floral then anything. Nice earthy flavor with a lingering malt backing.

Can extra’d by Highwine. Thanks!! Now this is a solid ass IPA. Aroma is big citrus and pine with just a hint of caramel malt and well-water like aromas. The pour is super nice with a clear bronze color and a fluffy but quickly dying white head. Flavor is big grapefruit, burnt caramel, pine bitterness, and mineral water. Drinks very nicely, with a clean finish that leaves just a bit of hops on the tongue. Great!!

12oz can into a Founders snifter. This is starting as a bag of straight hop pellets, pure dankness, I’d say this is fresh. It pours a nice lite copperish color with a nice 3 finger white head, perfectly clear an lots of lacing. The tastes of resiney hops and lite malt come through with hints of pine through and through. The body is a lot lighter than I expected. Overall this is very good and enjoyable.

Aroma: mostly piney aroma with a slight hint of grapefruit. Appearance: Beautiful golden orange color with nice head that fades relatively quickly.Taste: Pine up front, grapefruit in the middle and a very slight sweetness to finish it off.Palate: Hoppy, flavorful and a slight bit of malty sweetness for balance. Doesn?t taste bitter at all considering the IBUs.Overall: Really nice beer that drinks easier than it?s IBU?s and 6.5% ABV would indicate. Not the best IPA I?ve ever had,but a good go to IPA if you live in the Chicago area and need a refreshing hop fix.
