3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz can. 6/22/16 can date. Appearance: Reddish, amber brown with a slight haze and a moderate khaki colored head.
Aroma: Toasty, light caramel maltiness, with a moderate resinous and light citrus hop aroma.
Taste: Rich toast, bread crust and caramel maltiness dominates the taste profile. Strong hop character throughout to balance the rich maltiness, leading with resin and finishing with a moderately strong perceived bitterness and a quick burst of grapefruit.
Mouthfeel: Fairly heavy body for the style, with a medium carbonation.
Finish: Hop bitterness really lingers on this one, almost stronger than during the actual tasting. Sticky resin really lingers on the tongue.
Overall: Really interesting in that this beer seems to be a blend of an American IPA, Red IPA, and and English Bitter. Malt profile reminiscent of English pale ales, but the hop profile is probably suited for a IIPA. One thing is for sure, there’s nothing weak about this beer. It’s very good, but the intensity would make it tough to power through multiple in one sitting.

Pours a deep dark amber. Aroma is strong, full of piney hops mixed with bread. Taste is more malty than one would expect with a balanced hop flavor. Palate is full bodied and a bit sticky. Overall, a good beer, would get again.

Great IPA from can. This one has an interesting malt backbone to support the hop character. Very enjoyable and kind of sticks to the tounge. Enjoy!

Fresh can brough back from Minnesota by John from Panasonic. Cheers Pal. Pours deep, dark Amber with a White head. Intoxicating aroma of hops just as soon as you pop the ringpull. Floral. Flavourwise, it’s swimming in hops. Somewhat light on Malty caramel as a backdrop. Quite pronounced bitterness. A really delicious hop elixir.
