How things change so fast. Got this today in the CAN! since it has been some time seeing these on the shelf and did not have one of these tan drab cans in my collection. I had tried this once before and knew that I liked it from the colorfully labled bottle back in September 2011. Checked my notes on my personal database and yes I did give this brew good marks back then and have that bottle sitting high up on my display of beers. Sadly the CANS did not live up to the high alpha acids of a double IPA and yes there was the metalic taste and aroma. Still good brew with the nice pine, citrus, hop flavor, but nowhere as good as back in 2011 from the six pack of 12 ounce bottles. From previous info would have givin this high marks but yet another case of loss due to getting it in the CAN!

Brandon1989 (395) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2014
pours a slight hazy golden color with a medium white head that leaves lots of lacing. the aroma was very hoppy, mild pine, lots of tropical fruits, citrusy. the taste was tons of hop bitterness up front and ends sweeter with some of the citrus coming in as well. the taste lingers around for awhile.

Don’t know if it is because the can is really fresh, but this is a great double. The aroma literally hits you seconds after you open the can. The taste is exactly where you’d want it to be... I guess it could be a little more complex, but for the price this is a great beer. I would recommend this beer to any hop lover.

Aroma of candied dried fruits, citrus, pine, and grapefruit. Apricots, toffee, lemondrops, all for flavors. Sticky sweet and a slightly watery mouthfeel. Well executed double IPA.

roxtersoxter (358) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Pours light bubbly amber with very little head out of bottle. Hoppy yet citrus smell with a lighter hoppy taste. Almost a little too watery for an ipa. Wish it had a more robust flavor but still a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gift from St Regis in Deer Valley. Puts clear gold with foamy head. Nose is a bit faint, but has some citrus. Taste of grapefruit, caramel, hops. Tasty - maybe a drop syrupy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lots of pine hop aromas. Very hoppy taste but don't understand the big malt comment - I'm not getting it. Seems more bitter than 75 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
