Can from GE. Pours a clear reddish orange color. White head. Malty aroma so this is likely old and past its prime. Taste is a bit caramel like with a big bitter finish. Not that great.

Can 0.355l at home (via alesbymail). Enjoyed straight from the can. Colour is clear orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, grape, hops and malts. Propably not a very fresh can.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful pour, weak aroma, and fairly smooth taste for the insane IBUs. I love the amber pour w/ a huge head that leaves a perfect ring of lacing. Unfortunately, the aroma doesn’t draw you in nearly as much. The taste is bitter but more of a wet hop bitterness. It goes down relatively easy while quietly reminding you just how hoppy it is. Not quite as complex as I would have though but good overall.

12 ounce can. Thanks Brenton! Pours golden amber with a nice white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and malt. Taste is pine, lemon, caramel malt, and florals. Nice IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from beermerchants.com. Fairly average can art. Poured a truly splendid deep orange brown colour, with a layer of white foam. This is one seriously hoppy beer (I guess 113 should have been a clue), and you get a middle malty beer with huge hop oil mouthfeel and long bitter finish. This hop mix comes out quite austere and not fruity, except maybe some grapefruit, but lots of pine and hoppy bitterness. Maybe not the best balanced beer ever, but I enjoyed it.

Can @ home. Enjoyed from a glass. Nice dark orange, medium white head that quickly disappear, some lacing. Aroma, malty, hoppy, piney. Wish it was fresh. Taste, malty, with a very nice hoppy bitterness, piney, . Bitter aftertaste. Quite a bit of carbonation.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Drank out of a can. Smells sweet, fruity. Flavour is bitter and tarty, with a sickly bitterness at the back of the tongue. The main thing in the flavour is malt and a grapefruit bitterness that doesn’t quite match. Aftertaste is lengthy grapefruit finish. The bitterness doesn’t seem to be balanced with the malts neither with the aromas, which are low in comparison.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can, Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Red amber piled with fine white. Odd greasy sweet aroma like a chipshop battered sausage dunked in honey and tinned peach syrup. Full, slick, honeyed with floral peach sweetness and Lockets bitterness dominating. Imbalanced; all over the shop, not nice tasting. Chemical bitter linger. No thanks.

355ml can from Bier Huis, Ossett. Hazy amber with a thin but lasting head. Aromas of ripe banana and toffee. Sweet initial taste, followed by a bitterness that kicks in what seems like days later. Lovely.
