Clear golden with a white head that retains well. Good lacing ensues.

Medium bodied with fine carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish.
A tidy enough IPA!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at St Augustine’s, pours a somewhat hazy golden with a small tan head. Aroma brings out resinous and piney hops, some candied notes, and toffee. Flavour is very similar, bringing out a more malted balanced of notes, with toffee, candied sugar and resinous hops. Finishes both slightly sweet and astringent. No where near as masterful as their imperial IPA. Decent, but too malted for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: Moderate example, a little citrus peel, pith, with a touch of earthiness. Smooth, decent body, but could stand to be sweeter. Otherwise clean, full of flavor, but not as bright as I would have liked. Needs some sweet floral or citrus bits to really make it shine. As is, decent.

Love canned IPAs. This one is 10 weeks old - a little outside my normal window, but for $1.59, there was little risk. Turns out there was none. I’d like to have one fresh since at 2.5 months old the aroma and flavor were still quite nice. Floral and piney aroma and flavor, with some tropical fruit and moderate bitterness. Clean finish

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mostly clear copper under a thin foamy white head. Nose is weird, like tropical mango mixed with some aroma that reminds me of an aquarium. The flavor fares a bit better with fresh tropical juiciness like seeds of paradise and guava and mango, maybe some cantaloupe as well, with a gentle piney bitterness throughout with a caramell-ish sweetness supporting it. Ends a bit funny though with a bittersweet tone of earthy papaya and basil. Just a little disjointed.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled during VCBW 2014 pouring a golden color with a small white head leaving spotty lacing behind. Aroma is citrusy and floral with hints of pine. Taste is a grainy and light fruity malt sweetness with a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Definitely, this is a worthy IPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium.dark gold color. Average white head. Aroma is staunch and a little chemy. Somewhat foody. Malty backbone dominates. More traditional in style so there’s a saving grace. A little fruity bitter finish.
