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.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Citrus, pine, and grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes crisp, clean, and dry.

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

Really solid offering. Pours lovely clear pear with decent white head. Scent is very much grapefruit and sweat. Flavor has lovely bitter bite and nice sweet finish with minimal lingering hop effects. Excellent mouthfeel and carbonation. Can - Received in Trade

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can via trade. Drank out the can. Nose of string grapefruit and citrus. Some lemon. Taste is initially bitter with some light fruit and lemon in the flavor. No malt flavor or mouthfeel at all. Very flat behind the hops and kind of watery. Slightly disappointing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can thanks to OKBeerGuy! Pours clear orange, small beige head, nice lacing. Aroma is quite pine resin forward, some dankness and a touch of citrus. Flavor is the same, light initial sweetness followed by resinous citrus flavors. Light bitterness, lingering to the finish without being bitter. Medium body. Decent beer, would have been impressive 3-4 years ago but the bar has been raised so much. Kinda grows on you as you drink it actually. Nothing stellar, but there is really nothing wrong with it; this is a beer that hits the bullseye of the target it is aiming for; nothing unbalanced, out of line or amiss here.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
poured from the can with a few quickly dissipating tan bubbles, amber orange with plenty of particles; aromas of alcohol, caramel, intense resin; nice and caramel-y with intense piny bite; full-flavored with a medium to full body and a fairly creamy mouthfeel. It finishes bitter with a touch of orange. It’s tasty but I want a touch more carb a brighter hops.
