I was really excited to see cans of these at my local liquor store and then really disappointed. I have been running into a lot of oversweet IPAs lately and this is just another of them. Itís a nice orange color but w/ only a scant white head and patchy lacing. The aroma is hops w/ an emphasis on sweet fruity flavors, esp. melon. There is a good firm bitterness in the finish but overall this comes off as sweet, sticky and not very drinkable. Itís a tolerable decent canned IPA but really under par for the style.

Can. Pours clear glowing amber w big off white fluffy head. Aroma of pine, resin, crystal, and pineapple, not super fresh, bit plasticy. Flavor follows exactly, plastic, crystal, pine and pineapple. Good but the alcohol is a big too present, that with the plastic are the major detractors.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2012
12oz can from Binnyís in Plainfield, IL. Pours a clear, golden-orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is sweeter with a good amount of floral hops, orange peel, and a light grapefruit pine. Some lightly sweetened caramels and a touch of toffee. Flavor is similar. Slightly sweet florals with a light pine spice. Orange peel, some grapefruit, a light bready caramel, and a touch of toffee. Finishes a bit sweet and mostly dry with a medium-light bitterness and some citruses alongside a light bready caramel. Lengthy aftertaste following a light body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a nice IPA. Nothing special, but well hopped and lightly sweetened with an easy drinking malt balance. Not bad.

Scipio (682) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Pours a golden with a creamy white head. Aroma of caramel and malts, with some mild grapefruit undertones. Taste if more potent than the aroma, but still carries the same impressions. Good hoppy bite with a hoppy aftertaste, with this aftertaste being on the sweet side. Pretty good, although not as "busy" as I like in an IPA.

frpilz (110) - Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Nice lacey head which retains for awhile then clings to glass. Light amber color. aroma is clover, honey nutmeg, coriander. Lightish body , decent carbonation, moutfeel "fills out" sorta throughout the sip. Taste is light zippy everfecentat first then some spicy characteristics come in to play, with malty sweetness near the end. This has subtle flavors of toffee, honey , and floral . No real citrus action here. Would pair well with thai food.

JoePeesie (855) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Pours a golden brown with a fizzy white head that leaves just enough lace. Nose and taste are a nice blend of floral hops, and caramel notes. Not terribly deep or complex, but very approachable and easy drinking.

HonkeyBra (3271) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2012
12 oz. can. Pours a bright orange-red hue, with a dish soap colored small white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel, bright leafy hops. I get notes of toffee, sweet bread, along with touches of pine and orange peel. Flavor is a bit muddled, chunky sweet candied malts and leafy, piney hops. It has medium bitterness, and notes of orange and tropical fruit. I feel like the hops lack assertiveness, and if they were more pronounced this would be a lot better beer. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Overall, this is a very drinkable, albeit uninspiring, IPA.

Lost the notes on where I had this. Good IPA but not great. Would definitely drink again but not rushing out to do so. Serving: Tap

Nickls (1815) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - JUN 17, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap BT) Poured with a solid finger of slightly off-white foamy cap; fairly clear, light burnt orange color. Pretty decent head retention. Fruity citrus hop flavors; faint whiff of grain. Hops are mugged by a sweetness factor that I really just didnít enjoy that much; some fruity hoppiness slides in; sweetish malts and cereal/grain like flavors took over. Thinner to medium MF; lightish carbonation. Not that great for me in the style; wasnít expecting a hop bomb or anything, but just got some cloying sweetness with the sample that I had. Overall, not a bad brew, but just not a great example
