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.

MacBoost (1744) - Penfield, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy light orange color with a huge frothy head, almost akin to a draft pour. Aromas of bright tropical fruit, flowers, perfume. Taste is also very nice, but there is a big let down in the ultra thin mouthfeel. This has the potential of being a great beer, but I just can’t get over the watery mouthfeel. Still, all in all, a good beer though. Like.

deekyn (1459) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 21, 2014
A- pours a clear gold with a white head and terrific lacing. S- some usual suspects bit they burst from the glass. Great citrus from bitter orange, lemon zest to some passion fruit. These tickle then back of the nose especially towards the end. Dough and cracker malts are abundant with some rich and sweet smelling wet pine. M- body seems light for this beer but it has a good tackiness to it. T- citrus comes through again with the orange and ruby red grapefruit leading the way. Sourdough bread and pine mingle in the middle with some mineral and sharp grassy quality. Minimal amounts of earth in there towards the clean and quenching end.

Draft pours clear copper with a one finger white head. Nice citrus and pine aroma, grapefruit (but it’s not purple!). Medium dry, hoppy on the finish, citrusy. Resinous and lively. Pretty good.

tap and can. noticeable difference between the two. can is more malty and creamy. tap at brewery is very bright, bitter, pungent b.o. and citrus. enjoyable in both formats but different beers.

On tap at the brewery. Poured a clear orange color with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops with some malts in the background. Flavor of floral hops with a nice bitter finish and a decent malt backbone. A pretty good beer made better by the environment.
