3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.

12oz can poured into a tulip. From my Summer Secret Santa 2012. Thanks! Pours a clear burnt orange with about a finger of white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Taste is medium bitter. Mostly pine with some citrus and grapefruit. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, great. I would gladly drink this again.
