UPDATED: MAR 7, 2013 Absolutely superb IPA- one of the better affordable IPAs Iíve ever had my grubby paws on. Super complex on the nose and finish, citrus and hop like none other. A really nice grassy finish, herbal and carbon and alcohol all expertly balanced in a totally incredible IPA.

12 oz can poured into glass. Light citrus and hop smell. Nice hoppy and citrusy taste with a smooth bitter after taste. A nice IPa.

rbrazell (1452) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2014
Draft at Momo's. Hazy copper pour with a frothy white head. Dank, pine and citrusy hops fill the nose with mild bread malts in the background. Sweetish, smooth entry with sticky tropical and dank hops ending with a prickly bitter ending. Not bad at all.

Lowe1983 (1342) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2014
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops with some earthy notes. Flavor is strong of the citrus hops up front that leads to the floral hops and caramel malts. Decent bitter finish as well.

Mmm good citrussy and grassy aromas, fresh. So refreshing and bright, floral, piney, honey. Smooth and silky.

lambicboy12 (14) - salt lake, Utah, USA - APR 5, 2014
1- Low pine aroma, faint toasty malt 2- Dark straw to light orange with a few rising bubbles. Small clingy white head and crystal clear. 3- Assertive bitterness with a big supporting hop flavor. Piney. A light toasty sweetness creeps in. 4- Medium body with a good dose of carbonation. A low level of astringency in the aftertaste. 5- A tasty beer. I would have liked a bigger hop aroma (not dry hopped)?.

Voodoo (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2014
Pours a dark gold with tight white head. Aroma is sweet grassy hop. Taste is a bit oily on the lips, grass citrus, slight grapefruit, medium bitterness. Taste lingers for a short time but the oiliness lingers a bit, which is not a positive.

One of my favoritve IPAs. So well balanced, hoppy and bitter, yet sweet at the end. Just a very WELL rounded IPA. Best in the can!

Aromas of light pine, some hops and a touch of bitterness. Flavors are the same light and a little stale on the hops. Maybe not a fresh bottle will have to revisit.
