12oz can pours a clear bright amber/orange with a large white. Inviting aroma of earthy resinous pine, floral, and caramel. Taste has a nice hop spice well balanced with biscuit malt , pretty nice bite to it. Well rounded and flavorful, very nice!

Can mail-ordered from the brewery. Underrated IPA. The aroma on this is solidly potent. I got some serious Simcoe goodness from this one right off the bat. Strong, dank herbal notes go right for my nose. This isn’t all that malty which allows the hops to do their thing. Clean, bitter citrus is evident like pineapple and grapefruit. Long, dry finish. Excellent IPA in a can.

sonnycheeba (3453) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Can. Pours hazy gold with frothy, off-white head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is citrus and pine hops, honey, and biscuit malt. Flavor is earthy hops with sweet undertones throughout. Light/medium body with light carbonation and warmth. Solid beer that’s very smooth without much bitterness which makes it a good beer to introduce people to IPA’s.

Can. Pours hazy gold with a large, creamy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is biscuit malt, floral and citrus hops with pine notes and fruity esters. Flavor is light malt with heavy hops, medium bitterness and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body, warmth and carbonation.

hayduke (3341) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Pours an slightly cloudy gold, with a fluffy white head and good lacing. The nose is citrus, pine, and caramel malts. Medium in body, and very refreshing mouthfeel. The flavor is very well balanced between the tasty malts and flavorful and nicely bitter hops. The finish shows both fruit and a prefect degree of bitterness. Exceptionally refreshing and easy drinking. An exceptional IPA.

Sampled at CanFest 2011 in Reno. I enjoyed this one a bit more than the pale. Good, strong woodsy hop character with a backbone of malt.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Draft at GABF, new State! This was a damn fine IPA. Pours an attractive deep gold, slight haze with a fluffy white head. The nose is really brilliant a fruity citrusy with some light pine and floral. Faint caramel notes that really work here. On taste, very well balanced. Great bitterness level and more of that fresh hoppy goodness. Crisp and refreshing, one of my favorites of the fest. Excellent!

Draft, Snow Eagle Brewery in Idaho Falls. Clear golden-amber with a lasting foam. Luscious aromas of caramel, citrus, florals, resin and honeycomb. Flavors are an excellent blend of the same. Light-medium body is well-balanced, with a crisp dry finish and very sessionable.
