12 oz can. Pours clear orange copper with a medium pillowy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet tropical fruits and dank hops and some pepper.

The flavor is a little sweet fruit with some dank earthy hops and a big charred lightly metallic bitterness that lingers. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, it could have been a decent dank IPA, but I couldn’t get past overwhelming charred metallic bitterness in the finish.

Draft and can. Clear golden body with frothy white head. Raw, leaf hops dominate the aroma. Notes of resin, toasted grain. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Plant taste on top of husky grain. Chewy. Tastes of resin. Little finesse. Not my favorite type of IPA.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2013 11/13: Fruity hop character: apricot, citrus, herbal, pepper. A little earthy. Light malt flavor: sweet, bready.

Sweet, fruity, light bread aroma. Great spicy and fruity hop flavor -- can taste the Columbus hops, for sure. Starts fairly dry, finishing sweeter. Light bready taste in finish and aftertaste. Awesome AIPA... Snake River continues to impress me.

A beautiful beer, has great lacing and a really pleasant aroma of hops. The actual taste of the beer is pretty good but its just a little to bitter for me to drink these often.

Nice gold pour, white head. Aroma is full of grapefruit peel and piney hops. Nice bitter hops on the tongue, some grassy bitterness. Good stuff.
