Amber, wafer thin white head. Grass, lemon, pine, some malt poking through the alcohol. A bit watery on the palate with long bitter finish. Very strong and hoppy.

Superior, Co. - Superior Liquors - 12 oz can...last of my take homes from Colorado....sad. Deep dark copper, slightly murky with a thick sticky off white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Fresh resiny spruce-like aroma, brief wisp of cat urine - but not overpowering.Bold, fresh flavor - fresh bitter grapefruit, some caramel maltiness, a hint of nuttiness. Thick rich mouthfeel.

Can. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop and small malt aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bitter finish of medium to long duration. This a very good brew.

12 oz can pours copper in color with a full, creamy head. Dry hop aroma, lots of resiny pine, some malt. Medium bodied, with a nice drinkability. A little bitter to the palate with a slightly metallic aftertaste, this one maybe suffers a little coming out of the can. Still a very good IPA.

It bursted out of the can upon opening pouring a 2-3 finger head and fitting perfectly in my pint glass like most beers dont. Clear reddish copper beautiful color.It has a very creamy almost all white head with loads of lacing with a complex aroma of herbal floral,fruit,spice,peppermint, and sweet malt. The hop flavor is more dominant in herbal/resinony pinewith the same complex flavor of fruit/floral ,mint and sweet malt and a good amount of roasty malt. An overall taste makes it seem minty.Bittering fades shortly but leaving pine in your mouthThis has a very good hop profile with sweet caramel roast malt, a delicious good tasting ipa
