Can. Solid deep reddish amber beer with a lasting top of thin foam. The aroma is simply inviting, rich with an outdoorsy seductiveness. Solidly hoppy as youíd expect, the beer drinks with a rich evergreen sap bite, enough to make you think the beerís chewy. Delicious. (#3965, 8/15/2010)

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2010 This beer is fantastic, from the first sniff to the bitter after taste. It all works fantastic together. This will be my beer of choice for late nighters, as well as the refreshing beer I have after mowing the lawn. It is the perfect amount of citrus hops. Well done SKA, and a big thanks to Brian at beertopia here in Omaha.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a white head. Had a nice floral hops flavor with a good ABV. Really drinkable for an IPA. Wish this beer was more accessable in Ohio.
12 oz. Can?

Excellent on the nose! Sampled this one at Crescent House in Omaha. Copper orange in color, a nice hoppy character I usually only expect to find in Northern California brews. Full-bodied, a bit bitter on the finish. Iím impressed.

Bottle from Bill. no wait, make that a can. Pours a deep chestnut transparency...not much head to speak of. nose has spicy hop elements to it and some minty ribbon candy accented malt sweetness. Flavors combine the aforementioned characteristics but in your mouth rather than your nose. Clean, smooth, balanced...hey, nothing wrong here really...

Can. Hazy orange amber, off-white, long-lasting creamy head. Big sweet piney aroma. Resinous hoppy palate, medicinal bitter finish. Sweet biscuity malts hold it together. Drinks bigger than 65 IBUís. Nice.

12 oz can shared by jcwattsrugger. Poured an orange body with a smaller off white head. Aroma of syrupy hops, grains, caramel and a slight touch of cat piss. Medium bodied with very light carbonation and an almost dry finish. Flavors of citrus rind, caramel, grains, toast, and yellow grapefruit pulp. Real nice stuff from a can.

12oz. can. Pours a clear deep copper with a small white head that leaves some decent lacing. The aroma is very hoppy, with loads of pine and citrus, some grainy caramel malt is also present. The flavor is similar, with decent ibuís. All in all, a very solid ipa.
