Draft to taster. Looks alright; light for an IPA though. A transparent gold with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes solid too; lots of hops. Nice and light on the palate. An easy-drinking IPA.

On tap at Nano Brew Cleveland. Pours a clear orange-light brown with a thin white head. Aroma of pale malts, earthy hops, light fruits. Flavor of sweet malt, bitter grassy hops. A little bland for such a highly rated IPA. Itís drinkable but nothing too special.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy gold with lots of carbonation and white head. Aroma is citrus hops and some maltyness. Nice thick malty backbone of caramel. Very balanced with sweet almost sugary tasting hops. Very tropical fruit citrus heavy hoppyness to this one, but its well balanced with the malts, not as hop forward as some. Excellent stuff. Probably the best beer i have ever had out of a can.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can thanks to joshmcg000. Clear orange pour with a 1-2 finger, creamy eggshell head. Aroma of caramel, berry flavored candy and fruity, citrus and floral hops. Flavor is very much like sampling Cascade/Centennial IPA straight from the fermenter, while dry hopping. Tons of fresh hop flavor, lots of bright fruity citrus, but kinda raw yeast-wise and with lots of residual sugar sweetness. Throw in some caramel and crystal malt and thatís pretty much it.Not that that is a bad thing, other than being a bit too sweet, but the fact that the sweetness makes it like fresh hop juice - if hops had juice - makes that ok. Light to medium body with a slightly syrupy feel on entry, with a light, but sharp carbonation, leading to an off dry finish, with a slightly acidic feel. Pretty damn good overall, the hop notes are a little one dimensional, but very bright and fresh.

Definitely a small ipa. Not too much malt, which I find to be its biggest asset since there isn't all that much hop. Nicely bitter. Could have used a bit more floral notes to add complexity but overall I could drink this all day.

12oz can. Pours a clear deep golden color with a finger of fluffy white head. The glass is a foot and a half away from my face and I can smell the hops! Big aromas of citrus and floral hops. Taste is caramel malt, citrus, pine, and has a slightly yeasty aftertaste.

On tap @ Kerryman pub in Chicago. Hazy orange-tinted gold with a white head that holds firmly. Fresh ruby grapefruit and light pine hop character, sweet but light malt structure, nice bitterness. Bright and fresh.

A reasonably drinkable IPA. Hints of, licorice and cloves in the aftertaste. Too bitter for everyday.
