3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 Sampled this at local bottle store. Hazy copper color with small off-white head. Aroma of resin, grapefruit citrus, alcohol and some caramel malt. Taste is decently bitter, balanced well with a little malt sweetness. Somewhat oily mouth-feel and syrupy, expected of a IIPA like this. Pretty good, need to grab some cans next time.

Deep golden color out of the slender, Red Bullesque can. Sticky, foamy white head. Orange marmalade, grapefruit Jolly Ranchers and alcohol fumes in the nose. Big beer with lots of grapefruit rinds, sticky sweetness, light toast, with some pineapple upside down cake and apricot jelly. Nice warming alcohol sense. Pretty solid IIPA, and I do love a craft beer in a can.

Foggy amber orange pour. Decent cream colored head with quite a bit of lacing. Floral hop aroma. Classic double IPA flavor. Citrusy grapefruit notes. Clean finish.

Milder floral aroma. Copper hazy. Big frothy head with top notch lace. The flavor is decidedly bitter and induces pucker in the palate. Goes down with a slightest burn and leaves your mouth quenching for the next sip.

From 12oz slim - Iím forced into a position to say this is fín fantastic. Damn, that beautiful floral aroma! Those amber, golden hues! The home run of hops in your mouth! On top of it all, it is silky smooth.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy, reddish brown appearance with a small, off white head and a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus with a pleasant edge of melon on the backside. The taste is a virtual forest of resinous , piney hops, with a modest nod to a bit of malty, creamy sweetness. Full bodied, bittersweet, well carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering aftertaste.

Thanks to Tom for this. Pours a cloudy straw gold with a small white ring and nice lacing. Aroma is bit citrus and a bit honey. A bit floral and a bit sweet. Taste is a great balance of citrus and floral hops, resinous and sweet with grassy malts. Solid dry hop bitterness. Great beer.

12oz can in a tulip. Pours copper with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma strong of citrusy hops, a good amount of caramel and pale malts, plus a little alcohol and light fruits. Flavor the same, with lots of citrusy and bitter hops. Smooth texture. A pretty good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can shared at Sanderís, NYC during an evening during which we drank far, far too much beer. Pours clear gold with a light, foamy head. Nose of pee, alcohol and pine. Medium to big sweet flavor with lots of alcohol, pine, sugar, light toasty pale malts, lime. Full bodied with average carbonation. Warm finish with moderate resinous pine, mild grapefruit. Itís slightly harsh, to be honest, with a strong alcohol edge. So so overall. Iíll try this one again to see if it fares better, given that many people seem to have enjoyed it.
