3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can: Pours a clear copper with a medium off white head. The nose is blend of citrus and pine. The taste is balanced with a bit of mellow orange and some pink grapefruit. There is a decent malt backbone as well. The mouth feel is medium with a lingering finish. Overall this is a good IPA. I would drink again but probably not seek it out unless I was able to see the freshness on the can.

Draught 4oz sample in a flight. Heavy floral aroma. Heavy hops up front, spicy malt flavor in the back.
Best IPA I’ve had since getting to New Mexico. Significantly different than the other ales Santa Fe brewery offers, which seems abnormal in this state.

From the tap . . . decent floral, hoppy, aroma . . . upon tasting real pedestrian IPA, sort of syrupy.

@ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Aroma of some grassy and herbal hoppiness with a bit of aromatic floral hops and earthy toffee. Flavor is nice and balanced with a nice hoppy floral and grassy tone with some sweet pale malty undertones

12 oz. can. Pours a hazy dark orange with above average carbonation. Thick white head and nice lacing. Nice malt/hops balance. This one stands out among a lot of IPAs.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This one pours a burnt orange to deep amber with an off white frothy head that lingers. Nose is heavy citrus, grapefruit, light pines, tropical fruits, and quite flowery. Flavor is intense fruit and citrus grapefruit hops and a sticky caramel malt resin. Citrus and pines on the finish with low to medium bitterness for the style or just balanced with the residual sweetness. Medium light carbonation. Really enjoyed this one! Thanks, Trukpro!

Can. More grapefruit than pine in the nose. While the aroma and pour look promising, the depth of flavor fall short here. If indeed you are seeking a refreshing IPA, which borders a pale ale, this is a good choice.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from wchesser, thanks Will! Aroma has notes of spruce pine, mango, grapefruit, tropical fruits and caramel malts. Wonderful aroma! Medium amber hue with an average off-white head that mostly diminished and left some lace. Flavor is med/heavy sweet and med/heavy bitter. Palate is too light bodied. It is medium to light bodied and watery soft. Overall a wonderful IPA that is very under rated. The palate is a bit thin but that just makes it all the better to drink! I must have got the best can they made because this stuff is very good!
