3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a clear gold with an amber hue with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges and laces nicely. Aroma has a nice note of citrus and grapefruit with a bit of backing pine and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has more of a pine/grapefruit hop profile with a bit of citrus in the finish and not much of a malt profile.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pure amber pour. But little head. Super floral aroma. The hops are dominant of course. Super viscous, oily, and did I mention oily? Delicious supper for the hopheads. (#4638, 7/1/2012)

12 oz can from Shig, thanks for hauling this up for me. Hazy golden yellow with a small head. Aroma of bubble gum/cotton candy, floral hops and cereal grain. Flavor is mildly sweet malt and a medium hop bitterness. Medium body with soft carbonation. Nice IPA, thanks Shawn.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Canned. Poured medium, straw golden with a fluffy, well-retained off-white head. The aroma picked up juicy pine, peach, and grapefruit hoppage over a sweet fruity core.. very fresh and enjoyable. The flavor found pine, pepper, and grapefruit bitterness over bread and fruity sweetness.. spicy on the finish, with some muddled hoppage.. not as good as the nose, but still solid. Medium-bodied and on the bitter side on the palate.. watery and slick at times on the middle.. the feel wasn’t quite there, but overall this was solid.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from Brewforia. Pours light amber gold with a 3 finger frothy white head. Aroma is floral with light citrus over barely detectable caramel. Near med body. There’s lots of floral, a little citrus. This is not harsh. There’s a hint of that, maybe some resin, but this is smooth and relatively delicate. It’s certainly not sweet, but it isn’t exactly what I’d call bitter. It’s one of those interesting beers that has a load of hop, but there’s not bitter/burn. Finishes very hoppy. And certainly more bitter than sweet. Very nice thing here.

Can from Jackson Hole. A nice looking beer. Gold color and a tall white head. Aroma has good hops. Flavor is dry hops with some grapefruit. Great hop flavor, too bad we can’t get this in Minnesota.
