3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My favorite canned IPA. As the name implies, this one has a strong hop aroma with a bit of citrus. Pours a normal yellow/amber. Slightly bitter taste with something else (slight malts?) at the back of the throat. Nothing too outrageous, but nothing negative at all. I enjoyed the more on the second try than the first.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appeared a clear orange amber color with creamy, long-lasting head with some lace. Very aromatic: some grains and bread, but lots of piney, resiny, citrusy hops. Grainbill typical of strong American IPA, which is to say a strong malt sweetness which stands up against huge hops bitterness and flavor. A well-crafted, multi-dimensional IPA. I appreciate they didn’t use 100% grapefruity Cascade hops. Medium body, spritzy mouthfeel, warming alcohol. Lingering fruity, bittersweet aftertaste. Certainly one of the world’s finest canned beers. I know what I’m packing for the next camping/canoeing trip.

On tap at Oskar Blues. Solid IPA. Although there are difinitely better IPAs, this is a quality IPA at its price point.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had from a can. Good classic hoppy flavor and aroma, which was nice to see from a can. Overall though just a decent IPA. I may be spoiled with that style, but it wasn’t one of my favorite. Would be good on a hot day though.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hoppy, floral aroma. Golden orange color. Super hoppy finish. Very bold and chewy, so much so that I thought it might be a double.
