Well balanced very floral nose. Strong hop profile throughout. Bitterness is nicely balanced by a rich but not overpowering malt presence.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: 16oz can wrapped in aluminum foil and topped with standard pull tab. So I pulled the tab and poured out some honey colored ale. Maybe a drop of vamp blood in there, but pretty washed-out. Transient fine white foam finds resolve as a thin, broken sheet of a surface - but collared. Quantity of lace is equivalent to a Paris Hilton personal film: none. (3.5)
S: Hops. IPA. Grapefruit among other citric rinds. Slightly sweet nose candy of a malt profile. Iím guessing that thereís quite a bite to this one. An unbaked bread smell - doughy. I keep thinking I can smell more and more...tangerine? Excited. (3.5)
T: The dough is the first thing I taste. Then flanking of bitter and spicy hops roll over my palate and the beer may even be over douching the beer with hops. Tannic. As the beer warms up the bitterness dies out a bit and the beer becomes relatively sweet. (4)
M: Medium body with low carbonation. Dry finish only slight heat (guessing ABV in the 7% range). I think maybe my teeth dislike this beer - the enamel is flecking off. (3.5)
O: Still guessing IPA and this one is sweet and definitely drinkable. Actually reminds me of Daleís Pale Ale (also an IPA).

Can -- thanks, Jeff! Pours pale gold with white frothy head. Aroma: Big grapefruit and resinous nose. Taste: lightly sweet, big bitterness, lots of neat citrus hop flavor packed into this. Lasting bitter finish, as if youíd expect anything else. Some sweetness is present, but only enough to carry the hops, which I like. Palate: full body, thick, creamy texture. Overall: This is the second can Iíve had now, and Iím digging it more than the first. Abrasive indeed, but in a way thatís endearing once you get to know each other better.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nice golden hue with a medium head and lots of lacing. Aroma is citrus backed by some malt and a serious hop note. Taste is citrus with some robust hop notes and some malt and a hint of caramel in the middle. Palate is tantalized by lots of different hop characteristics. Backed up by some nice malt and a crisp finish. Great drinkable beer that masks the ABV well.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Thanks to Whit for this. Pours a foggy golden yellow with a smallish white head and good lacing. Aroma is intense citrus hops. Probably the most intense citrus hopped beer Iíve had. Taste is surprisingly well balanced for the nose. Big citrus hops are there and a nice bitterness tingles the palate but itís well balanced with sweet resin from the hops and grains.

Refrigerated 16 oz. aluminum can from BVery (canned on November 27, 2013) poured into a snifter. Pours hazy light orange with medium white head. Aroma is evergreen hops, medium body, lower carbonation, and thin big bubble lacing. Taste is evergreen hops, balancing malt, and bitter finish. Pretty good DIPA with a nice richness.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
slightly hazy pale yellow with white head. Very strong aroma of pine and citrus. strong pine grapefruit taste with bitter bite at the finish. Very heavy malt feel. Unbalanced IPA, but very good. For those who like a slap in the face with hops.
