Poured from a 12oz can. Beer’s aroma is noticeable as soon as the can is cracked. BIG hops with a sticky resin, pine aroma. Taste is big and bold with hints of metallic hops. Full-bodied palate for an IPA. Finish is lingering and sweet with a reminder of the 7.2% abv.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma was a bit weak, just wanted more hop notes. Aroma is mostly malty notes with a underdeveloped piney, citrus hop character. Taste is similar with more malt, toastiness present with a lackluster hop goodness. Finish is smooth and malty with a lingering creamy caramel note. Not a bad brew per se, but still it’s kind of a miss and lacks some of the hoppy, bitterness one would crave from this style.

Single can. Pours a very rich copper with moderate head and lacing. Nice hoppy nose. Taste reminded me of dark, buttery pancakes, which seems to make for a nice beer. Nice big finish. Solid.

Can from supermarket. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, tropical fruits, caramel, nuts and grass. Surprisingly smooth body with hops and caramel malts. Sweet finish with caramel and pine. Very nice, and definitely different IPA.

Poured from can into snifter, coppery color with healthy head, strong hoppy aroma. Tastes great, hidden ABV, pleasantly surprised by this one. Glad I got a 6 pack.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber color out of the bottle with a thin slick of beige head. Sweet fruity nose. Caramel and hop resin candy flavors. Some tropical fruit and red grapefruit juice over a strong malty backbone. Not your typical west coast IPA, but quite nice.

12 oz can. Pours a deep copper color and clear with an off-white head. Interesting hop aroma, sweet caramel malts, spruce and spices. Flavor is a variety of sweet malts with zesty hops. Fairly sweet and light bitterness for the style. Not bad and easy to drink.
