3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 ounce can, best before 1 August 2012. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a cloudy golden/orange color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention is good, and thereís a lot of lacing left behind on the glass. Aroma is nice, but a bit weak. The brew smells like citrusy (grapefruit, orange) and pine hops, along with some grain and caramel malt. The taste is just like the aroma, but luckily the flavors are stronger compared to how it smells. Itís a sweeter tasting beer than I expected it to be, I thought the hop flavors would be stronger. With that being said, itís still a tasty brew. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick and creamy with good carbonation. I think itís a good overall brew. $8.99 a 4-pack.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Mad Mex, served in a pint glass. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a small, lumpy off-white head. Sheet of lace. Aroma of grassy hops, crackery malts, dry grains, and mild spice. Flavor of spicy, earthy hops, floral notes, dry malts, sugar, and crackers. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, bitter, spicy mouthfeel. Decent IPA.

Canned. Golden colour, beige foamy head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is is very fruity and juicy with some mild minerals and some pleasant maltyness. Flavour is fruity and floral bitterness along with mild bready notes. Rather sweet malty body along with the big hoppyness as well.

Can 473ml (BB 07/2012)
From Whole Foods, NYC. Slightly hazy orange color, good creamy off-white head. Fresh citrusy-hayish aroma. Medium-bodied. Crisp. Piney and flowery hoppyness dominate flavor, some sweetish fruity malty notes. Feels more than 62 IBU. Long lingering bitterness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice IPA that gravitates more to a ESB profile than the Cali inspired IPAs of today. Orange, hazy with a creamy head, floral and light sweet cereal in the aroma. Dry and bitter throughout, more floral notes with citrus rind backed with a light malty sweetness. Lasting dry/bitter finish. Quite elegant.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Nice big foamy head on top of a deep gold amber color. Lacing follows. b Fresh hop and grapefruit citrus aroma. Hints of orange. Taste is bitter but you feel the malt in the back. Finish is clean with a slight bitter aftertaste. Fantastic brew!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a can into a pint glass. Appearance is a huge, billowing head of white foam on top of a orange, copper beer. Great lacing. Aroma is very bland, if I were doing this blindly, i would guess that this is a hoppy pilsner. Sweet pilsner grains come through with just a presence of hopping. Bitterness is just a thought at this point. If I didnít know this was a brand new can, I would guess that it was just sitting on the shelf too long.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a nice golden orange color with a frothy white head. Aroma is quite hoppy with notes of ctirus, pine, herbal notes and resin along with some sweet malt. The flavor follows the aroma, fairly bitter with a nice hop profile, lots of citrus, some blood orange, pine, resin and the herbal notes backed by a sweet malt backbone. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a great example of an East Coast IPA!
