3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can purchased at Brothers Provisions in San Diego...whose beer buyer had brought a bunch of stuff back from the Chicago area in an RV ($6.00). Pours a clear golden amber hue with a half finger of off-white foam comprised of quite large bubbles. AROMA of bready malts, floral hops, and citrus. FLAVOR of grapefruit, sweet tangerine, airy pine forest, with a significant honey and caramel maltiness. Dry and semi-bitter finish. Not very inspiring IPA, though I am admittedly unsure of the freshness. (338, 903)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is hazed pale copper with a good bit of bubbly off white head. Nose is moderate grain presence and some caramel malt. Hops are citrus and strong resin hop and fairly sweet. Taste is even more sweet, strong malt and less grain presence. Lots of caramel and sweet candied fruits. Hops are citrusy, less resin. Medium syrupy body, softer carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden with a half finger of head. Nose is citrus, orange peel, grass, floral hops. Taste is in line with nose, low bitterness on the finish, malty backbone, sweet. It's good and drinkable, but not blowing me away. About 2 months old, I'd like to try it fresh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Expectation: nothing short of a typical IPA
Hardware: 12oz can which was canned on April 15, 2014, into Le Listermann
Nose: citrus with a malty backbone and strong presence of grass
Sip: fresh hops akin to mint with Alpha nonsense
Taste: tame considering the strong hop aroma/sip which suggest a well balanced brew
Misc: nothing to declare
Conclusion: the wife really approves and is requesting more. As for me, glad I tried it, but most likely wonít be back for more.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from can to glass. Golden hue with fizzy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is melon, grapefruit, tangerine, pine, honey, cereal. Taste is sweet initially with a bitter following that blends with a nutty finish. Overall this is an interesting IPA that is more grainy tasting than your typical representation.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can pour. Deep gold in color with a minimum of head. An absolutely perfectly balanced IPA, with a sweet maltiness on the back end as a kiss off from the assertive hop profile. An outstanding IPA in a crowded field.

Golden orange pour. Nice fresh hop aroma. Pine and citrus, hint of sweetness. Solid ipa but nothing groundbreaking

Tap in pint glass at celtic crossing in Chicago. Light copper we white head and good lacing. Smells of light hop. Hoppy, bitter crisp. Fairly common ipa. Decent.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can courtesy of Falco242 who picked some up during a recent visit to Chitown. Compared to other IPAs this is less carbonated. For me that's a neutral factor but I know others who prefer that. Hazy dark gold with creamy off white head that is barely lasting with no lace. Good balance and refreshing/thirst quenching. Excellent drinkability.
