(12oz can thanks to SaucerSam) cloudy medium gold, oily tan head with excellent lacing. Nose is super fresh citrus, grapefruit, funky, herbal, very light onion that’s not offensive. Taste of fresh citrus, light and balanced grapefruit, smells so much fresher than it tastes, bit of biscuit and yeasty. Light body, easy to drink, oily body, no bitter linger

Can - Pours beautiful amber with a thick white head. Nose is nice herbal/citrus/pine/spice hops mix, orange marmalade, and a biscuity malt base. Taste has lots of resiny citrus hoppiness, light spicy herbals, and orange marmalade/bread malt base. Smooth and fluffy body. Real nice stuff.

Aroma is full of hop goodness and the expression there carries over in the flavor. Bitterness is tuned up a bit and dominates slightly. The body is significant and on the heavy side for an IPA. This heft is appealing but the beer remains refreshing.

The way American IPA should be! Simcoe + Columbus is awesome. Piney, citrus and tropical fruit, resin. Just a hint of malt for balance and drink ability, but hops rule. Just a hint of onion in the nose, otherwise awesome.

12 oz can. Thanks Ed. Gold, slight haze, white head. Aroma is huge, fruity, juicy-citrus hops with a little pine. Flavor is fairly dry, bready/biscuit malt, piney hops, slight grassy note, lingering bitterness. Very easy drinking. Nice.

Can via trade courtesy of BuckeyeBoy, tks Jeremy. De couleur dorée sur un col blanc moyen. Arôme est houblonné à la frontière du résineux et du pin (Simcoe?) avec un fruité en rétro nasal de Columbus ponctué par de petites effluves tropicales. Palais est axé sur les houblons qui brillent par leur profile. Palais est sec, note de pin, sève, malté léger avec une fin de bouche légère de caramel. Note douce arrive en retrait apportant un rappel de fruit de la passion.

ekoerper (596) - Iowa, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Aroma: fresh floral hops, good dose of pine/resin, some light malts and faint sweet notes, pleasant grapefruit/citrus. Appearance: light golden color, good clarity, average white head that fades to a lasting ring, leaves some spotty lacing. Taste: refreshing burst of hops - lots of resin with some citrus, then a nice light malty follow up. Malt generally stays out of the way of the hops - just enough to balance, nice light cracker character with a bit of sweetness. Alcohol is well hidden, medium bitterness that is nice and clean with no lingering bitterness/astringency after the taste. Palate: medium body and carbonation, semi-dry finish. Overall: really nice IPA - great hop punch with subdued malt character, right up my alley.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2015 12 oz can. From snakeriverbrewing.com.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Fruity and piney hops, fresh hop cones, mild bitterness, some sweetness and mild maltiness in the aroma. Wow! Very nice aroma. The flavour is piney and citrusy hops, mild bitterness, sweetness and some maltiness. Extremely drinkable and rich. Truly amazing IPA.

Copper boudy, white head. Aroma has lots of pungent pines. Just right amount of cookie dough and caramel. Flavour is quite right for nice bit caramelly IPA. Something in this one is really just great.
