3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours clear amber with a medium white head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, spruce, floral. Flavor is medium sweet, almost candylike; perhaps cotton candy? Definitely floral notes as well, with medium bitterness. Very odd, but not necessarily bad. Medium body.

On tap sample at Flying Saucer. Not much on the nose, but good taste of grapefruit. Very herbal and somewhat bitter. Somewhat thick on the palate. Decent IPA.

Clear orange, spongy white head. And a bonus appearance point for the awesome label, of course. Rather malt forward aroma, with caramel and brown sugar. Plenty of hops, too - mostly grapefruity, citrusy ones. Taste is Sweet up front, with the expected caramel and brown sugar, then assertive hoppy finish. Sweet-ish but still very hoppy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint on tap. Clear copper with a film of lasting bubbles. Pleasant but slightly subdued nose of orange toffee, grapefruit and resin. Taste has grapefruit, earthy orange, toasted grain and nut, toffee and a nice drying finish of resin. Light-medium body finishes well to the dry side, has medium carbonation and is one of the few well-balanced American IPAs.

6 pack of cans from Downtown wine and Spirits. I couldn’t turn down a canned beer with such an awesome label. Turns out to be a tasty IPA. Pours hazy bold orange with a tall white head. The aroma is a little soapy with sharp, grassy and floral hops. Flavor is very floral, like hibiscus and has just a bit of citrus going on too. Palate is not as big as I’d think for the abv. I generally prefer more straight up citrus or pine in my IPA’s, but this is a cool departure from the norm and pulls it off well. Clean drinking brew.

I love IPA’s in cans it just locks in all the hop aroma adding greatly to your drinking pleasure. This one had a huge resin hop note to it. A good hop forward American IPA

A solid IPA with a mild finish that keeps you coming back for more. Can’t tell if there’s some Summit or Citra in there.. A little oniony and garlicy from the hops.
