Can. Sweet nectar rich honey aroma with a golden orange colour. Citrus, orangey flavour, refreshing with a lot of substance. Fairly simple character but well balanced and appropriately bittersweet. A little malty. Very nice.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a can into a pint glass: Pours amber with a nice white head, with decent lacing. Aroma is orange peel, caramel, and a little funk. Taste is a strong caramel malt body, a bit hoppy,with a little citrus and earth. Medium body, high carbonation. It’s way too malty for my taste in an IPA. It’s alright.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a well-balanced IPA that is well-worth trying. It is one of my current favorites that is easy to acquire in my region. It pours clear with a nice head and a fruity aroma. The taste is medium with respect to both bitterness and sweetness and a slightly bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz slim can into a stemmed boulevard glass. Pours a dark amber marmalade color, with gold and copper hues. Lacing is sporadic and covers parts of the glass, and it seems the tiger lines are in fact apparent. Aroma is is malt bases, organic soil, fertizlier, aged orange peel, and rotten pear. Taste is more malts than hops, def on the old english ipa style, hops take a back seat and ease in with flavor towards the back end of endulgence. A dry and bitter aftertaste of malts, orange and hops ushers in. Theres a fruity tone to this all, which brings in juicy fruit, grapefruit, white grapes and melon. Drinkability is funky, at times a malt drinver ale, at others a medicore ipa. Not bad, but not exactly what I look for in an ipa. 6.5% seems just.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Unclear orange pour. Smell is sweet citrus, sweet malt. Taste is grapefruit, orange, a bit spicy, sweet malts. Medium bitter, but quite flavorful. Better than resin.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2014 Bright orange pour with lots of rocky foam; white grapefruit, white pepper, spruce and grass aroma. The astringency of over brewed tea is persistently present, though never overwhelming.
Caramel malt flavor with orange oil and pith, again with lots of slick bittersweet tea and old dry leaf flavor. The crystal and English hop presence is dominant, but less cloying and unintelligent than expected.
The tightly woven, dry but full textured body has a lot to do with this. The finish shows clean grapefruit bitterness and dry caramel. This intentionally out of date example seemed balanced and slyly excellent when cold. With warming, the fruit syrup-astringent tea combo gets overwhelmingly powerful.

Decent, hoppy ipa but not one to get particularly excited by. There are much better ipas out there.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden orange with a fairly robust white head. Reasonably clear. Citrus on the front of the nose, but more prominently pine, resinous. Decently bitter but backed by a pleasant malty full sweetness. Medium body, some oil. Not much carbonation but a reasonable amount of acidity. Pretty solid.
