Thanks, Lee! It is a fucking gimmick beer, no doubt. Bright medium orange body with a buoyant head. Fresh, fresh fruit aromas and crystal malt and big bitter notes. I guess Iím a sucker because it smells awesome. Lush, elegant tropical fruits dominate, but itís crisp and balanced so as to avoid excessive sweetness. Imagine Furious on vacation: itís delish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml can from levi. Thanks. Pours a translucent new penny copper color with a small white head that soon recedes to a film. The aroma is a bit subdued caramel, mild grains and some pine. The flavor is bitter hops forward with mild pine and grapefruit set in a caramel malt base. The palate is a bit uneven starting thin and building to a pasty conclusion and the carbonation is lively. Finishes medium in duration and clean with a bit of lingering bitter hops. Overall: Not what I would call a west coast IPA, but its still quite good and Iíd drink the shit out it if it was available here.

Can at Maxís. Pours a clear golden body with white lacing. Aroma is citra and malt. Mouthfeel is medium with lots of malt dominating any sort of hop flavor. Overall, way too malt-focused - especially considering the can was reasonably fresh.

Thanks for the can OmegaX. This was a pretty solid IPA - lots of piney hops in the aroma followed by fresh, juicy hops in the taste. Undertones of bright citrus and a splash of malt make for a real palate cleanser and a smooth, hopped up brew.

Nice brew. Nose is big hops. Grapefruit, citrus, tropical fruits, light honey, and caramel. Flavor is similar. Big bitter finish with a good amount of caramel and what I imagine roasted grapefruit would taste like. Cool!
