So. my first thought is that I’m going to compare Ethos IPA to my local legend Surly Furious. Both come in 16oz cans. Price point between the two is negligible. Both have pretty high IBUs while maintaining a reasonable ABV. Surly: 99/6.2% Ethos 110/6.7% That is about as far as the comparison goes. Ethos could be described as decent to good...Surly is world class. First and foremost Ethos is a hop bomb. There is no pretense of balance here. West Coast my ass, there are hopheads out there in the heartland. On the lighter side of the classic IPA amber color with a light, thin white head. The aroma stands tall with dank earthy, tropical fruit and apricot hop notes. Initial tasting provides lots of grapefruit, and citrus tang but falls apart fairly quickly. The carbonation is light. Surprisingly at 110 IBUs the bitterness is not as assertive as one would expect. The mouthfeel could best be described as thin and lacking depth. While tasty, this is very much one note and not nearly as refreshing as I had hoped. This did get better as it warmed a bit, a little more sweetness came through but this brew still lacked "completeness" In the crowded world of IPAs this falls into the pedestrian side of the equation.

Can, shared by belgbeergeek. Pours dark yellow, a bit hazy, decent off-white head. Strong peach aromas, more spicy in the flavour and resinous in the end. Despite being quite rich in aroma and taste, not really my style of IPA.

Really tasty - overwhelming citrusy hops with a nice backbone to hold it all together. Good stuff.

I’m a bit confused about the reviews that say golden clear because mine poured a true cloudy apricot. Possibly the result of handcrafted beer. Anyway a truly fine craft although straight forward and lacking any deep complexity. Medium head and decent even lacing. Toast and some alcohol coming through at 6.8%abv. $9.99/multi sixer at Binny’s, Forest Park IL

Can at lake quivira beach. Pours clear golden with off white foamy head. Nose is pungent citrus and pine, some earthy malt notes as well. Same on the tongue with pretty good bitterness and drinkability. Balanced and surprised at the ibu ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice strong citrus and dank aroma. Pretty and clear appearance. Medium weight with complimenting carbonation. Big IPA flavor without being too harsh. Well received.

Plain Jane IPA but some fruit hints come out of the hops. Expected more punch for 110 IBU. Drinkable but not exceptional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16oz can at trailer. Clear amber color with lasting ivory head. Pine, tea leaf, floral, marshmallow aromas. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Pine, citrusy, herbal hoppy flavors with a tangy toasted caramel base---drying finish___not bad.
