12 oz can. Gold-orange with a small, sticky white head. Medium-intensity aroma seems to have a blend of the big three American hop aromas: citrus, resin, and floral. Hard to pick out anything more distinct, and not particularly outstanding. The flavour is better, though, with floral/sweet citrus hops backed up by malt and bitterness. Very drinkable.

Clear but golden amber colour with a foamy white head that laces well enough. Made in an upfront hoppy/citrus kick and shows some cereal/grain like note that gives it depth. Flavourful palate and dry but hoppy finish and good length make this a pretty good IPA, I’d say!

Fantastic IPA. Nice sweet malt. Fantastic hop flavor and just the right amount of bitterness. As good as it gets

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich hazy copper and bronze coloured body with a nice, two centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of bright citrus and piney hops with a good malt backbone and quite a bit of tropical fruit sugars noticeable in the smell. Medium-bodied; Assertive hops up front with a decidedly piney and herbal bite, all with a smooth malt backbone and a good rich toffee finish. Aftertaste shows some hop bitterness, but not too much, all with a good balance and a little sweetness. Overall, a nice IPA for sure, but it smells and looks nicer that the final taste. Still, well worth bringing this home from Chicago! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Binny’s in Chicago (South Loop), Illinois on 21-August-2013 for US$1.67 sampled at home in Washington on 24-March-2014.

Thanks tectactoe. Good all around drinkable IPA. A deep citrus aroma. A sharp piney citrus hop flavor. Hop flavors stick around afterwards in a good way. I liked this one.

Nothing to knock your socks off, good IPA and is what an IPA should be, but is nothing more than that either.

Aroma is citrus. Flavor is floral citrus and pine. Finishes with a nice bitter finish. At 6.5% this really gets the job done for a brilliant ipa.

Rated fr0m a 6-pack 0f cans fr0m the l0cal Jewell: G0lden/yell0w b0died with a thick, enduring head, this had a str0ng citrus ar0ma c0mplemented by mang0s, pineapple, and a hit 0f pine. It was filled with h0p flav0rs, tasty, n0t t00 bitter, with a lightly sweet malty flav0r, bready/grainy, beneath it. It finished n a bittersweet n0te. This is a s0lid IPA, very drinkable...danger0usly s0.

From can. Aroma of sweet citrus hops and flowers. Flavour of malt and hops. A little too sticky for the medium body. Finish is bitter.
