12oz can dated best by 6/13/12 poured into tulip glass. Aroma: tons of floral hops, huge malt backbone and sweetness coming through. peaches and mangos. this smells amazing. Appearance: literally no head and no bubbles rising. amber orange color Taste: medium sweet and mild bitter. pretty bland Palate: finish is medium bitter, mild sour, mild sweet. carbonation is very weak. mouthfeel is thin. strange bitterness remains in your mouth and throat. Overall: When i smelled this i thought it was going to be great but the taste let me down and the aftertaste and mouthfeel were a real turn off. I wont pick this up again.

teorn88 (6459) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 The rating below is for the tap version, but after trying the canned version, this beer will get his score increased from 3.1 to 3.9. The canned version is so bold and flavorful, with an amazing malty backbone, almost like a good DIPA. On tap at Euston Tap, London. Pours a clear copper colour with a minimal white head. Short lived foam. Aroma is hoppy on a malty base. Pine, grass and caramel. Taste is similarly balanced, with slight bitterness over a malty layer. Medium mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Overall, not bad by any mean, but certainly not something Iíll remember forever.

GTAEgeek (1928) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2012
12 oz. can. Pours gold, with a medium, off-white head. The aroma is pine, floral hops, and minerals. The flavor is unpleasantly bitter, and lightly sweet and sour. The palate is medium, astringent, and a little watery. Overall, a fair IPA.

frpilz (111) - Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Overwhelmin aroma of grapefruit and a bit of lilac bush. Nice head upon pour , and a dazzling semi opaque orange amber color. Striking appearence, then you can actually begin to taste with your nose in a way as you begin to sip. Refreshing burst of hop flavor, decent carbonation, not too much but there. Medium body has a crisp mouthfeel. Slight creaminess at the end. No sweet elements that I noticed, citrus, clove, and a bit of burnt toast taste. Sort of ashy tasting, not as balanced as I like, but definatly a high end American style hopped up IPA.

Piney hoppy goodness. Not bad for coming in a can. Nice finish. Good citrus flavor. Welcome addition.
