3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Pours a very clear amber orange with lively carbonation and a huge frothy white head that dissipates after a short while. Aroma is very floral, piney, light grassy and a bit of caramel. Flavor has a nice hop punch and wonderful bitterness. Very dry. Medium bodied, sticky texture. Finishes nice and long and very bitter.

12 oz. can as a trade bonus from erway- thanks again, Jeff! Pours a clear copper color with a small beige head that leaves some uneven lacing behind. Aroma of piney hops, caramel malts, grapefruit citrus, floral notes, tea leaves, and just a bit of spice. Flavor of pine resin, floral hops, grapefruit citrus, caramel malts, and tea. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tea-like mouthfeel. Some lingering bitterness. Very nicely balanced IPA in a cool can.

Color is amber, brown, crimson and brilliant clear. Good stuff. Aroma is of grapefruit, citrus, and lovely tropical flavors. Lovely hops balanced by some malt. Layers of flavors upon tasting with a gentle finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Hoppy goodness again. Amazing balance. Great complexity and intensity of flavor. One of the best beers ever out of a can. Wonderful IPA.
