On tap @ Radio Maria. Orange-gold, low white head. Sulphurous and skunky, not an appealing nose really. Earthy citrus with low sweetness and moderate bitterness.

Can. Pours a dark brown. The palate is thin. The taste is balanced. A nice floral and citrus hop. With a nice bold malt back bone.

Braudog (6763) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2017
Can. Dark bronze and quite bubbly, with a firm head. Solid American IPA qualities, richly flavored with woodsy hops and a big malt backbone. My favorite find on this trip to St Louis. Happy 80th, Dad! (#6522, 2/24/2017)

wlajwl (6885) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 2, 2017
Aroma is citrus/fruit and slightly earthy/biscuit malts. The flavor is citrus/fruit, earthy malts, a hint of peach and a slightly spicy/hoppy finish.

Finhead (1770) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Reddish gold with a white head. The aroma citrus and grassy hops. It has a medium body with oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bitter with a slightly dry finish.

fuzzcro (295) - Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2016
A nice looking pour. An overall fine brew just not my personal preference. The citrus forward is a bit too much for my taste.

TH28 (464) - - DEC 10, 2016
16oz can. No apparent code dating. Appearance: Tea colored, light golden brown. Hazy, with a low lying off white head. Aroma: Fruity hop aroma is strong, more towards a tropical mango but has some underlying citrus. Has a typical caramel malt and hop resin note found in traditional American IPAs. Taste: Juicy caramel maltiness, with a fruity hop mango touch. Bitterness slowly builds to a strong crescendo on the swallow, with a traditional pine resin character. Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy bodied for the style, with carbonation on the lower side. Finish: Leaves a tropical fruit layer bitterness after the swallow, with some retronasal burnt caramel. Overall: Solid but not spectacular take on a red IPA. Delivers a nice "new school" tropical fruit aroma, but from there forward it’s a pretty stereotypical American IPA with a strong caramel and hop resin character. Low carbonation and relatively heavy body make this a sloooow drinker

tfontana (1014) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 29, 2016
Can pour into shaker pint glass. Appearance is hazy, medium brown (like a cider), nice sparkle, finger-width foamy white head with decent retention. Aroma is tropical fruit, grapefruit. Taste is more tropical fruit than grapefruit with late bitter dominance, citrus. Palate is medium bodied with average-to-lively carbonation, finish like the taste. Overall, very nice. A bit more of a turn to the bitter at the end than I’d prefer, but still good.

2.8
crossovert (13080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2016
473ml matte-finish can. The can looks excellent. Too bad the marketing does not match the beer inside. It is a sweet, orangey, old-school type east coast ipa, sweet and unmemorable.
