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.

I didn’t expect to have an amazing beer from a can, but it was perfect. Golden, with malty, citrus, perfect blend of Columbus and simcoe. The flavor is well balanced. If you find it, try it.

Braudog (5876) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2012
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)

Can poured a clear gold with a small lasting ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, grapefruit, mint, lemon and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, grapefruit, orange zest and light pine with a crisp dry bitter lingering citrus finish.

Best by 09 18 11, from the new cans which just arrived in town. A medium golden colour, lots of foam, ditto for the lacing. Citrus and pine dominate the smell...suggesting some pretty strong bitter notes when it comes to the taste. Yeah, it does lean towards the bitter side. Grapefruit with some notes of pine bring plenty of the bitter, the malt, from what I can tell, brings a light, very light bit of sweetness that doesn’t really bring any balance but..what the hops are doing is working for me for this American IPA. I’ve been enjoying the beer on draught lately, and in the past, at the Old Chicago in town and the beer in the can does not disappoint at all. A very well done and easy drinking IPA. I give it a firm thumbs up for the draught and in the can. 05-27-2011 23:01:13

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Tap @ The Sushi Bar in McCall: pours a golden hue with a thick white head. The nose is crisp and citrusy with tons of grapefruit and lemon notes, hints of pine and grass with only a glimmer of toasty malt notes. The flavor is super clean and the bitterness is low, this seems more like a san diego style ipa. Delicious expression of hops.

skortila (4602) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2010
West USA trip 2010. On tap @ the brewpub. The aroma is very strong fruity with a lot of grapefruits and some pine. Clear, golden-copper coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is bitter, has some grass and all the great fruity hopflavours which also appeared in the aroma. A real good IPA.

nearbeer (3820) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 19, 2011
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.

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!

The beer pours great with a nice hazy golden straw color to it, a great think white head and great lacing on the glass. The smell comes off very hoppy with a great piney, grapefruit smell to it and almost a hint of white grape. The taste is great with a nice balanced hoppy flavor, it comes off hoppy but mellows out quickly without burning out your taste buds. The mouthfeel is decent with a bitter leftover flavor but definitely doesnt burn you out and the beer was well carbonated. Overall, this is a great beer and an impressive from a brewer I have never experienced before...Highly Recommended.
