Big sweet pineapple aroma, some aloe. Hazy gold, small white head. Large and juicy, intense hop character yet little abrasive bitterness.

Can shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear light copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy simcoe earthy hop and small malt aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy bitter finish of medium to long duration. This a very good brew.

Thanks bauermj. Pours a clean translucent gold with one finger of dense creamy eggshell white head. Beautiful pour. Nose is resinous and hoppy with lots of citrus rind and some piny notes. Flavor is nice, grapefruit zest and citrus with a dry piny character. Palate is nice, perfect amount of body and a medium bitterness.

16oz can thanks to the awesome trader biglobo8971 on BA. Pours clear bright golden with a two-finger white head and great lacing. The aroma is big herbal hops and citrus with slight tropical fruits and sweet malt. The flavor starts a little sweet with pale and caramel malts then finishes with a big citrusy hop bite. Orange, pineapple, and herbal notes. A little honey in there. Medium-bodied with a slightly resinous mouthfeel and soft carbonation. A solid wet hop beer. Not mind blowing, but very good.

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Can. Canned on 10/13/10. Shared by emacgee. Moderately clear orange amber with a small whispy white head. I can imagine that this was great almost two months ago when it was first canned. Now, the hops have faded. Itís still okay, but nowhere near what I expect it was. Will have to revisit next year.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Thanks to Santa... Canned 10/11/10. Clear amber pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is pine resin, and biscuit malts. Flavor is definitely degrading. Muted citrus hops and a doughy malty backbone.

Thanks to Chuck for this can. Pours a light, crystal-clear amber with a big pillowy white head that recedes fairly quickly to a thin cap and leaves gorgeous lacing. Aroma is full of green, floral hops, pine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange zest, you name it. As it warms it starts to take on an herbal character with some light sweet bready malts perceptible in the background. The taste is also massively hoppy but not abrasive or bitter. Itís all just extremely bright and fresh with pine cones, lemon grass and light citrus fruit as well. The backbone is bready and just hefty enough to support all the hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, highly carbonation and completely refreshing overall. This is a spectacular IPA and, as far as I can remember, the best fresh hop beer Iíve ever had. Drinkability is off the charts. I could drink this every day and not get tired of it. Just awesome.

(16oz can, courtesy of Exiled) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of baby powder, grapefruit, pine, light florals, and nuts. Flavor of grass, citrus, earth, caramel malt, and toasted grain.
