16oz can shared by Ben. Filtered orange-tan. Foamy white head. Rather classic US IPA. Has a nice orange tone in the hops. Nice depth there. Toasty English malt and yeast. Easy going. Good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Trade with RobertDale-16oz can. Pours rich lt tan-amber. Pleasant nose-pine/citrus zest-lemon, cramel-lt/med malt. T-dank resin/lemon hops, carmel-lt/med malt. Not overly bitter, more late addition/dry hops provide a nice hop flavor and aroma.
As it warms, lemon changes to orange.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reasonably good. Above average piney and citrus hop aroma. Average copper color with a white head. Weighted palate but not overbearing. Strong carbonation, which enhanced the bitterness. Harsh bitterness up front that subsides and gives way to a moderate malt sweetness. Decent but not overly unique.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16oz tallboy via trade extra. Pours a clear light amber with almost no head, even when poured aggressively. Aromas of a little soap and a lot of pine. Some citrus. Very low carbonation and pretty passive hops make this highly chuggable and slightly refreshing, but not aggressive or bold at all. Taste is bitter and semi sweet. Flavors of some tropical fruit,some pine bark. Finish is limp and watery. Meh. I mean,there’s nothing bad about it but not much good either. Flaccid is the best way to describe it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can thanks to WillRunForBeer. Pours a murky orange-brown color with a small foamy head that quickly fades. Aroma suggests more of a malty IPA. Lots of caramel and toffee mixed in with the pine and juicy citrus. Tastes sugary sweet up front with a moderate bitterness in the finish. Juicy citrus, pine, caramel, and grapefruit peel. Medium body. Mouthfeel is a little syrupy. Pretty solid but more caramel and malt than I usually like in my IPA’s.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500mL can, pours an opaque orange with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out pine, resinous hops, and caramel malts. Flavour brings out loads of piney hops, loads of resin, and a nice big caramel malt backing. Not too much sweetness, with ample hoppiness. Very nicely assembled IPA, better than its current ratings suggest.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can sample courtesy of dak. It pours with a deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up floral hops, some pine resin and then thin hits of molasses off in the background. The taste is nice and has some hoppy teeth. I get a dash of malts and roasted malts before pleasing pine hop resin and a jab of citrus hops and firm floral hops take over the experience. The hops are balanced and blended with each other to create a tasty flavor harmony. Darn tasty IPA
