12oz can.Good IPA and from a can. Not quite in the league of a Racer 5 but still better than average. Will probably be my beer of choice when we go to the festivals this summer where no bottles are allowed.

It pours a cloudy orange amber color with a thin white head to it and some spots along the side walls of the glass. The nose is full of fresh hops and lemon grass, and there is a bit of yeast funk that you can pick up as well. the flavor is nice and crisp and fresh with lemon and fresh hops mixed with an earthy background and carmel malt that sticks to the sides of your mouth nicely. Overall it is a great IPa with nice carbonation and excelent hop flavor.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
can. nice packageing.
pours a hazy, light orange copper color, decent half inch of off white head. sharp, crisp grapefruit and citrus bitterness on the nose, with some toasted sweetness. Flavor follows, with sharp aggressive citrus bitterness in front, dry flavors of citrus and pine; tamed bready malt flavors stick around, but stay in the background. Palate is very crisp with a light slickness, very easy drinking. Mild bitter finish. Overall, very good, crisp citrus IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a clear golden color with a frothy white head. Citrusy aroma. Hoppy as well. Strong, bitter hop flavor. Slight dry finish. Not bad from an IPA from a can. I do like the citrus/hop balance.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours tequila sunset into a shaker. Amber head quickly subsides. Sweet citrus aromas. Sour and citrusy but in the end a little unlikeable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Clear orange/yellow pour with a little bit of carbonation. Orange citrus and mellow hops aroma. Flavor was bubblegum, tons of sweet citrus and easy on the hops. As much as I like the bitter hop bomb beers out there, this one was well balanced and deceivably drinkable for its 7.2% ABV. Very good!
