3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours a very clear slightly reddish amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is definitely hop forward, with a lot of citrus elements and just some hints at floral. Taste is moderately bitter and straightforward, without much complexity to it. Perfectly fine IPA.

Can - Citrus and grapefruit. Clear gold with a decent white head. Citrus notes with some lemon and grass in the finish. The Nelson hops really show up and for me overwhelm a bit too much.

This was a pleasant surprise at the Phoenix airport on draft. Crisp and hoppy. Just about what I like best in an IPA. Light color and great head.

SanTan’s HopShock does so many things right. It offers lots of hop bitterness. At the same time, there’s alcohol sweetness and a sticky pine sensation that lingers on the palate. That touch of honey-like alcohol sugar is what really makes this brew shine.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can. Cooper red pour, with nice white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and grapefruit. Taste - fairly mellow up front, mid way through there is a nice bit of citrus, finishes with a medium amount of hop bitterness. A nice drinkable IPA.

Poured from a 12oz can. Aroma is pine and English malt. Flavors are pine, tropical fruit, citrus, and English malt. Nice Ipa, a little bitter going down, for sure a dryer Ipa. Good beer overall, glad my brother brought me this from his trip!
