16oz can 2011 ed. Same label as the 2010 version. Pours a clear caramel orange with a large, billowing, rocky yellowish head. Good retention. Big swathes of lace. Nose is quite melon heavy, pineapple, caramel, big detergent/lemon soap. Volatile notes of detergent/soap fade as it decants. Nose gains more muted melon, vanilla, caramel, mango sorbet. Woah such fresh pithy mango pulp. Oh....nom nom nom. Taste is bitter, silky/rich, sharp soapy bitterness, small alcohol presence, nutty bitterness, macadamia nut oil. Rich, oily mouthfeel. Has the elusive "quenching IPA" character like orange juice of sorts that only great IPAs can manage. Correct amount of residual sugar. Long, bitter finish. Very good.

Can thanks to Kyle! Pours a clear amber orange with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of hops with a combination of grapefruit and pine backed by a bit of citrus. Flavor begins with grapefruit and is joined by pine and a bit of resin in the finish.

Now this is my kind of IPA. Citrus and pine resiny goodness! Lots of harsh bitterness to go along with it. Maybe a bit one dimensional, but that one dimension is delicious! So Fresh and so clean.

bookman10 (588) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Very good, very fresh beer. Tastes like tap beer from a can. Pours a nice, clear copper color with a mid-sized, creamy foam head. Aroma and flavor dominated by fresh hops--piney, citrusy goodness. Nice bitter finish to the beer, which is otherwise very smooth-drinking.

Tasted on 10/29/11 from a 16oz can, canned on 10/12/11, sent to me by SourNotes, thanks Andrew. Pours clear, bright, amber with a thick off-white head that slowly recedes to spotty lace. The nose is awesome with a hops aroma ranging from tropical fruit, tons of citrus, and floral, with a nicely caramelized malt backbone, and just a hint of earthiness. The flavor is beautifully bittersweet with tropical fruit, citrus and floral hops caramelized bread malt, and just enough bitterness. The body is medium with average carbonation, a bit of a sticky texture, and a long citrus, floral, tropical fruit, and pleasantly bitter finish. This is a truly outstanding IPA.

16 oz. can from Dalzale, thanks Greg! pours a clear golden amber with a decent one finger head. aroma of citrus, pine resin and some straw. a bit surprised the flavor isn’t more tropical since it is 100% citra hops. mild carbonation which fits the style just right for me, finishes dry. a nice session-able harvest ale.
