Tap - small foamy head, medium copper color, big time grapefruit hoppy aroma and flavor, mild malt backbone - excellent if you are like me and like the big hops!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can (dated 1/2/14) poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy light golden yellow with tiny bits of sediment and about a finger of off-white head. Good lacing. Aromas of citrus, caramel, resin, light tropical fruit, floral notes. Tasting notes of grapefruit citrus, bitter pine, resin, big bitter piney hops. Juicy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Medium body with a semi-dry finish. Had this before on 6/1/13 with a 5/8/13 dated can and my notes are pretty identical so it seems like the beer hasnít fallen off too much after two months.

Slightly hazy orange-tinged gold color, frothy white head. Mild citrus and grapefruit, but dominated by hay and caramel as itís almost 5 months old. The malty sweetness is restrained despite the age. Smooth, a bit of hop oiliness, and a resinous bitter finish.

Can packaged in December. Yeah, itís a bit oxidized. Iíll rerate with a fresh one. Still holding up pretty well. Lots of linalool on the nose. with some sherry oxidation. As to be expected. Still a good hoppy flavor, but a bit of that trans 2 is coming through. Pretty nice.

Can courtesy of aetheon. Pours a clear golden color. Thin white head and minimal lacing. Aroma is quite resinous and piney with a good bit of citrus. Taste is bitter, resinous, grapefruit-like hops. Medium bodied and nicely carbonated. The finish has a nice dry lingering bitterness. Very very nice IPA!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz can thanks to Rightcross55. 12/31/13 canning date. Pours hazy gold with a huge rocky head that fades very slowly and leaves chunky lacing. Aromas are pine, wet grass, light citrus, and light tropical fruit. Taste is just dry, bitter hops. Pine, citrus, flowers and grass. Very light malty sweetness in the dry finish. Mouthfeel is a bit foamy too, itís a little over-carbonated. Not really my kind of IPA but still pretty solid.
