Can. Pours a clear dark amber with a huge fluffy white head. Light aroma, of citrus, hops, malt, a hint of pine and sugar. Taste is bitter and smooth, of hops, malt, citrus, sugar, and a bit floral. Lingering creamy bitterness. Decent.

Can (awesome!) Pour is clear brilliant golden/ orange with minimal white head. Aroma is loaded with citrus and pine hop. Aroma is very fresh and full. Flavor also with citrus and pine hops with a little malt backbone. Really clean, crisp, and to the point. Great beer. Love cans.

12oz can. Filtered, deep amber-tan color. Creamy, lacy head. Full bodied, robust IPA. Well done. Toasty malt backbone. Solid grapefruit, orange-citrus hop flavors. Pretty much packs the hop punch of most Imperial IPAs, but with a creamier, mellower body. Well balanced.

Can from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours clear copper color with off white head. Juicy citrus hop aroma with some caramel. Bitter pine hop flavor with some grapefruit rind and a touch of malt sweetness. Medium body with moderate carbonation. A nice IPA. Thanks Craig.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle purchased at Sun Devil Liquors in Phoenix while visiting there. Enjoyed in the little glass in the hotel room. Pours a clear orange-amber with one finger of off-white foam. Aroma full of nice grapefruit and also pine/spruce, spicy hops, and hints of tropical fruit (pineapple). Flavor starts with big hoppy bitterness with a strong grapefruit presence then the malt character makes itself better known. The flavor leans much more toward bitter than sweet. Bitter finish with more fruity notes in the end (peach, grapefruit). (291, 397)

From the can with the awesome label. Pours very dark golden, little head, fairly tenacious lacing. Aroma doesnít quite hit me for some reason. Great citrus, grapefruit hops and fairly intense bitterness that sticks around in the aftertaste for quite a while. Not much malt or sweetness detectable. Solid IPA on my list of "try every once in a while" beers.

[Tap] Pours a light orange color with a stout white head. Thick, hoppy aroma of grapefruit, citrus and pineapple. Lots of orange and some spruce in the taste. More malty than I expected as well. Some bread, sticky sweet rolls and caramel even out the initial hop kick. Solid mouthfeel and spicy hop/herbal finish. Low carbonation. Well made and easy to drink.
