My rating could e skewed because it wasn't a wry controlled environment or situation. I drank this while rafting down the illinois river with rednecks throwing back Nat Light all around me. I thought it was fantastic, but I was burning up in 100+ degree direct sun, so anything was going to taste refreshing!

12 oz. can. It pour a very clear orange/copper color with an orangy head. The aroma is pine, toast, hints of caramel and oranges. A bit weak on the aroma. The flavor is similar with a strong toasty malt presence with hints of caramel and some piney hops. A little brown sugar and tropical fruit toward the finish. Drinkable. Not a bad IPA, just not very exciting.

Although a six pack costs $10, it is worth it. The awesome can caused me to try it, but the incredible taste keeps me buying it. Great IPA with a bit of a piney after taste.

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.

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!
