On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Aroma is very malty with some sweaty hops, sweet fruit, and wheat. Flavor of sweaty hops, caramel malt, and bitter hops. This one surprised me - it is a great IPA!

Can from beerboxer. Pours orange copper with a thick beige head and a citrus aroma. There is a refreshing caramel malt flavor with a dry bitter hoppy finish. Goes down easy, especially on a hot summer day.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce can. Pours slightly cloudy orange amber color with a nice dense 2.5 finger off white head with great retention that reduces to a thick lacing cap that lasts. Some very nice lacing coats the glass as you drink as well. Aromas of orange, grapefruit, pine, caramel, and spice. Nice aromas with good strength, standard IPA stuff here. Taste of orange, grapefruit, pine and caramel. Big sweetness on the front with a decently strong bitterness on the finish that lasts with pine, caramel, and citrus flavor. Medium carbonation and body, very creamy and smooth as well, very drinkable. No alcohol in the taste or finish. Overall an excellent well rounded IPA. I would pick this up if it was readily available, perhaps for some camping?

Crushed at GABF í10. Honkeybra and I just kind of stared at each other with this beer in our mouths, trying to find the will power to swallow. Nasty, rotten hop flavor. This was just terrible.

I know youíre not supposed to pour this beer, but when you do, it leaves a 2 inch head of dirty white foam and has a dirty copper color. The head is sticky and the aroma resinous. It tastes quite malty and bland, and only on the half sip does the bitter sweet hoppiness come about. Itís a good beer in a can no doubt, but you can keep looking.
