3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy honey color with 3/4" of stiff white head. Aroma is sweet and tropical with a mix of citrus and other fruits. Taste is the same, and the malt is clean, allowing the hop bitterness to punch through in the end. $2/12oz

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: A very fruity aroma. Not unpleasant, but a bit too sweet and cloying for my taste.
Appearance: Clear gold with a nice, white head.
Taste: Light bitterness throughout.
Palate: Light body, dry texture, soft carbonation, long finish.
Overall: The fruity aromas are a clear deception. This is a hops driven beer, but just barely. It doesn’t have a watered down feel, but the bitterness of the hops are faint and distant. I’m not disappointed, and it’s a decently developed beer, but I’m not blown away either.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly cloudy amber color. Nice head, and some insane lacing! Head isn’t long lived.
Aroma is very hoppy. Description calls for some miscellaneous tropical fruits, and I detect little of that. There’s a weed around here, it’s called bitterweed, and it smells just like that. Interesting...
Taste is bitter. Like you would expect from an IPA. In fact this might even be a little more bitter than your average IPA. It’s so hop heavy that the malts are pretty much undetectable.
Mouthfeel is crisp. Finishes clean, but quite bitter. Crisp but smooth Very dry.. Maybe a little citrus.
Overall, it’s quite tasty. One of the better IPA’s I’ve had. If you like IPAs, try it. I was expecting an average IPA, but this was surprising.

Pours coppery-gold with a nice, lasting head. Aroma is hops, citrus, and hints of the noted kiwi and apricot; scent gets much more pronounced and bouncy as the beer warms. Taste is clean upfront citrus with nice resiny mouthfeel, fading to a balanced bitter. Good beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour into goblet. Aroma isn’t very strong, but has a distinct resin forward quality, with grapefruit and floral notes. Appearance is clear amber with decent (1/2") white foam head that leaves nice lacing. Taste is lightly sweet, moderately butter, and lightly sour, I would say it’s very pleasant but not powerful. Palate has a medium body, creamy texture, and a slightly bitter finish. This is a really good IPA on the lighter side, and the price locally is hard to beat.

Can, at Eaux Claires music festival in Wisconsin. Had a few of these at the festival, definitely the best thing available. Wish I could have tried it properly in a glass, but still enjoyed it - nice tropical fruit notes with medium bitterness, not the most flavourful IPA but tasty and pretty well balanced. Would like to try it again sometime.
