Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2009
Can Pours a clear golden with a decent off white head. The head seems to last well and produce pretty good lacing. The aroma is hoppy with touches of citrus, mostly grapefruit and pineapple, sweet malts, and faintly pine. Has a good carbonation. The flavor is good and bitter. I love the hops. Has a good balance though and not over the top. Has a medium body. The texture is resiny. Has a good finish with a good aftertaste. I saw a sixer of this and because of the name had to buy it even though it was in cans. The can explains why and it makes sense even though it feels wt. Good drinking beer.

CacheManyHose (620) - HONG KONG - OCT 24, 2016
Can from Safeway poured into a tumbler. Drank in SF whilst staying at the Beacon. Clear dark orange with small white head. Smells of quite strong caramel malt, bubble gum esters, moderately piny and spruce/grass hops. Body is oily, touch of malty/doughy sweetness, mostly bitter, light carbonation. Decent, good malt/hop balance (though malt is a bit strong/doughy in the nose).

Vaiz (4421) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2016

ineedbeer (1917) - Oakland, California, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Poured from a 12 oz can with a best by date of 11/11/2016. Aroma is hop forward with a lot of grapefruit, pine resin, and dank notes. Medium malt notes with cracker, toasted bread and some lighter caramel. A hint of alcohol. Pours a fairly clear, pale, golden orange with a medium sized, thick, white head that slowly recedes to a thin film that lingers. Moderate lacing and no legs. Flavor has a moderate sweetness with cracker, toasted bread and some light caramel malt notes. Medium high bitterness and a hint of alcohol spice with a fairly dry finish. Medium strong hop notes with a definite woodiness, but also some grapefruit and pine resin. Hints of other citrus and fruit. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low, but present alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty boring IPA. Too malty and the hop profile is old fashioned and woody as opposed to fruity and tropical. It is a clean beer though.

Can. Light orange body, mostly clear, with a small, white, soapy collar. Aromas of grain, malt, earthy, resinous hops. Pine, bread, alcohol. Light to medium bodied. Unremarkable.
