3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Piny, floral hop aroma. A little citrus and musk but not to over powering. Dark, clear, golden orange, beautifully carbonated, thin head with persistent bubbles.
There is a very sharp hop flavor up front, but then it mellows in to a smooth bitterness. Itís rather refreshing. I get a lot of citrus, it has a nice dry finish.
Very lovely, drinkable beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Falling Rock. Clear orange with a one finger creamy yellow white head, eventually fading to a thick film. Fruity citrus and green hops up front with some light dankness, and light cotton candy caramel malts behind. Flavor is more dank but still has the citrus, and the malts turn slightly earthy. Distantly reminds me of Blind Pig. . . distantly. Dry finish with bitterness @ a 6. Light carbonation with a medium body. Holy crap, I found a Ska beer that isnít only drinkable, but good! I know they sell it in cans, whi is also pretty cool--dunno if they date said cans, so I canít give it a bonus point yet.

12 oz can Pours a nice amber with a large off white head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, hops. Flavor is citrusy hops, grapefruit, caramel malts. Nice to have another good canned IPA out there. Not as good as Furious Cans, but nice for price.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle at Front Range BBQ in Colorado Springs) Pours a clear, copper color. Small, white head that quickly diminishes. Floral hop aroma. Light floral hop and grainy malt flavor. Slick texture, soft carbonation, average duration. Light, bitter finish. I had this beer on tap on another occasion and the hop aroma and flavor was much more prevalent than from the bottle.

Pours clear orange, with a two-finger beige head, big bubbles, very good and lasting lacing. Pine, grapefruit, caramel, biscuit aroma, with an estery fruit undertone. Medium body, very dry. Doesnít taste as malty as the aroma indicates but very hoppy, some lightly toasted biscuit and grapefruit, with a strong bitter, grassy finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can was a bit off-putting at first. Pour into a glass with a thick white head that stuck with it. Floral hops all over the place. Piney and almost smoky or earthy. Hops isnít quite as heavy on the palate as the aroma led me to expect, but most definitely a hoppy beer. Fairly well carbonated. Hides the 7% alcohol pretty well. Overall pretty damn good brew.

Very woodsy/piney type of smell. Pours a nice copper/orange color, not a lot of head. Tastes of citrus, with a lingering aftertaste. Tons of hops here. Very nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear copper with a dense beige head. The aroma has earthy hops, some pine and a good amount of toasted malt presence thatís fairly dry. Medium / full body with some semi-soft carbonation. The flavor has a very earthy hoppiness and lots of dry toasty caramel malt with some paper traits. The finish is earthy with caramel. Good beer.
