Can. This is a good IPA thatís easily available (at least in Iowa). Pours a hazy amber color. Nice head that sticks. Nose is grapefruit with a little pineapple. Taste is bitter and sweet. Grapefruit and mango.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
When this hop-head sees "110 IBUs" on a pint can, Iím plenty interested. Oddly, no ABV seems to be listed. (Iím counting on strong. It was not a good day at work.) Poured into a Goose Island pint glass that someone gave me (Honest), it has a nice look. The body is a light amber with a dash of yellow, the dense head a combination of creamy and rocky. The aroma is faint, probably because of the density of the head. The first hit is a bready yeastiness followed by a malty sweetness and... some hops, please! They are there, but not very strong... citrus? Now a splash of toffee. Time to taste. Generic malt... a bit of caramel, cookie dough. A bitterness appears next, sturdy, but doesnít seem too strong. More, please. It never happens. Have I become so jaded that this brew does little to faze or move me? Another swig íní swallow, then a mouthful to swish around. The bitterness grows, but remains unaccompanied by hop flavor or aroma that I love so much. An added point for the bite, but not much more. Hops arenít just about bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pine, grass, and citrus on the nose. Very citrusy on the palate, grapefruit and lemon mainly. Very complex hops on this one. Even a floral note in there. Pretty solid IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A slightly hazy dark golden color with a meringue like cream colored head with outstanding retention and great lacing. Aroma is surprisingly bready with somewhat dank and grassy hop smell. A sweet bread taste at first then some chives and grassy hop flavors. A piney bitterness takes over and starts to build, along with some herbal tea. Finishes dry with a lingering semi-smooth bitterness. Medium bodied with a crisp level of carbonation. Drinkable with lots of flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours an ever so slightly hazy golden light copper with a big, thick off-white head. Aroma is light malt, caramel, orange and some herbal/floral hops. Taste is malt, caramel, herbal bitterness and a little orange and peppery spice. Taste is nicely balanced with a pleasant residual bitterness that remains. Medium mouthfeel that is a little astringent.

Pours beautifully from big can into tulip glass. Not a whole lot going on in the nose. The flavor more than makes make up for it. Quality hoppy grapefruit and pine bitterness with a syrupy sweetness. Dense and chewy on the palate. The spicyness of the hops become more intense as I drink it more.

2.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprisingly has no aroma. However this is very full in body, hoppy, and smooth. Really fills the mouth and is pleasing.
