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.

Can given to me by atom. Light in color; almost golden with a medium sized frothy head. I’m surprised by the lighter color on this. Lots of pine in the aroma with a good amount of orange and grapefruit. Pretty nice. Taste is grapefruit, pine, caramel, more fruit towards the finish. Some resinous hop character. Light to medium body. This a really good IPA that caught me off guard. Thanks for the beer, buddy.

Atom (1346) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2012
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!

NachlamSie (2771) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2012
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 (3570) - 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.

BeerandBlues2 (9730) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 7, 2012
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 (3380) - 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.
