From a 12 oz can shared in Gardiner MT. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Malty aroma, probably the hops were muted because the can was 9 months old. Still the flavor was pretty good with lightcitrus and pine notes.

Can - Pours beautiful amber with a thick white head. Nose is nice herbal/citrus/pine/spice hops mix, orange marmalade, and a biscuity malt base. Taste has lots of resiny citrus hoppiness, light spicy herbals, and orange marmalade/bread malt base. Smooth and fluffy body. Real nice stuff.

Can at home courtesy of adnielsen. I hate you Aaron. Appearance is clear copper with a small white head and great lacing. Old bread, grapefruit, rotted fruit peel, oranges, and caramelly aroma. Taste is caramel, stale malt, somewhat tangy, grapefruit peel, oranges, cereal, metallic, and light citrus with a medium bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. This one is way past its prime.

Can from LeninCat. Pours hazy gold. Aroma is mango and grass. Taste is mangoes, jolly rancher, white sugar, orange juice. Finishes too sweet and sticky for my tastes. But some great tropical flavors going on here.

mansquito (3106) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Whole Foods, Bowery 12oz can ($3): Pours a light orange with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit. Taste is mildly bitter with mostly just really fruity hops coming through. This is a mild IPA that manages to have a very American, west coast character to it. I suppose they should get props for that.

old notes and free ticks from cats. Random garbage fucken a. Amber pour with a small head. Citrus hops and lots of resin, big caramel back bone. Bitter finish. Doesn’t taste much like a dog even though it has one on the label.
