Todd! Thanks brotha! Orange pour with rocky white head. Dank meaty citrus and light pine with candied malt and caramel. Balanced. Flavor is a solid lemon citrus bitterness followed by more candied malt. Borderline DIPA mouthfeel, somewhat chewy. Clean citrus and pine bitterness to clean the palate.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy sunset orange color with a two and a half finger off white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice ring of lacing. Decent carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of cat piss, resinous pine, grapefruit, orange peel, and carmel. Taste starts with a little pine and some citrus like grapefruit and tangerine. Can already taste some carmel malt. Then the middle brings more malt presence. Notes of carmel and bread come in and tone down the resinous pine flavor, yet let the citrus notes shine. The finish brings back the resinous pine of the more abrasive quality, as well as more grapefruit (but juicer this time), a little orange or lemon peel, some spiciness, more carmel sweetness. The bitterness lasts on the palate after each sip. Becomes more resinous as it warms. High medium body with a creamy and sticky mouthfeel. For 110 ibus, this is not as bitter as I thought it would be, but still satisfies my hop craving. More balanced than I thought it would be as well. Pretty decent west coast ipa in cans that is not too expensive. Would definitely have again.

Can, sourced from an RB locals4locals BIF - thanks soonerchamps! Pours an attractive caramel-orange color with just over a finger of creamy beige head. The nose is inviting, much more than I had expected at 110 IBUs... citrus, mostly grapefruit, pine, and caramel. Strong flavor of piney hops, florals, light citrus... not nearly as bitter as expected. Finish is very sticky and lingers quite a while. Potent and pungent. Interesting, but not my style for a daily drinker...

Pour out of 16 oz can, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice orange, grapefruit, some slight pine and grass, nice caramel, toffee notes, touch of spice, pretty nice. Taste is a mix of sweet orange, grapefruit, pine, going into some nice caramel, toffee, slight earth, grain, spice notes, finishing fairly bitter. Pretty nice beer.

Can (1 pint). From Steve, thanks Sir! Hazy golden with a medium off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of dank hops, citrus, malt and pine. Taste is slightly sweet with herbal hops, citrus, pine, malt and moderate bitterness. Medium body. Slightly dry. Good carbonation. Alcohol is perceptible. Good West Coast IPA. A tad too malty to compete with the best from the style, but a more than decent IPA. Refreshing!

Can. Clear orange pour, spotty thin carbonation and an aroma of muted oranges and hops. Flavor is nice juicy and hops, herbal toffee and bitters and just enough malt to balance it out a bit. Nice solid beed from Tallgrass.

A-big tropical hop aroma. A-orange amber hue with fluffy white head. T-Sweet Carmel malts on the front. Nice passion fruit, mango, orange with some slight grassy earthiness hops. P-Really enjoy the palate and mouth feel of carbonation. Good amount of dryness and astringency to finish the sweetness of malts away. O-Incredible Ipa. A lesson why ipas are best in a can. Tastes fresh. Dated to expire 10/29/13.

Pours a hazy orange copper color with a finger or two fo eggshell foam. Aromas are citrus, earthy honeyed malts and a touch of grass. The palate follows with nice balance between bitterness and malt. Easy drinker.
