Poured from a 16oz can into an imperial pint glass -- Towering two to three finger width head that lingers. A translucent yellow/gold. The aroma is booze, pine, and grass, not as prominent as I was expecting. Flavor is malt sweetness then hop bitterness, pine, faint lemon. A really nice IPA that leaves a decent amount of lacing as you drink. I will enjoy drinking my four-pack.

16oz tall boy from jcwatts at the battleship tasting. Poured a clear honey amber body with a tight frothy off white head. Aroma of rotting oranges, lemons, fresh citrus, wet toast and honey sweetness. Flavor of dry citrus rinds, medium toast, yellow grapefruits. Medium/full body with average to stronger carbonation and a dry lingering aftertaste. Good stuff.

Can. Dry and bitter. Grapefruit aroma and dry hop and malt flavor, with a dry, grassy finish. Light copper color. Like drinking grapefruit juice.

Draft @ MCI Marriott. Nice hoppy aroma. Orange color with a little white head. Taste is more citrus, with a little pine in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, appropriate. Better than average IPA.

Good deep golden color, nice creamy head. A bit boozy for my tastes. Nice malt backbone for the high IBU and alcohol. Hop profile is a little muddy. Nothing distinctive. Good all around IPA, but nothing special.
