Had this one on-tap at Red Robin in Mooresville. Spent a day on the lake and needed some red meat and beer close it out. Glad to see this one on tap in the midst of below-average beer. Came out poured-to-the-brim a deep orange/gold. The nose was ripe with fresh hops. Carried with it a mild toasted finish.
Moderate-to-full feel. Carbed up well. Hops are king in this one. Bitter goodness, with a subtle sweet kiss, takes over. Peppery and spicy as well. I’ve got to take a bite of burger to calm my tastebuds down after sipping this one. A really bitter one here. I like it. Not the most refreshing IPA out there, but this gets it done. Nice work, Aviator.
Where: Harris Teeter, OBX, NC, USA.
How: 12 ounce can.
Pretty good IPA. Pours a clear golden color with a big frothy white head. Good head retention and thick lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus hops, not bad smell. Taste is moderately bitter with floral and citrus hops. There is some balancing biscuity malt. Palate is medium richness, crisp with some mild bitterness. There are better IPAs out there, but this one is fairly good. Braudog (6793) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2017
Can. Gritty and earthy, this pours a dark orange color with a towering head of rocky foam. The aroma is dirty, full of outdoorsy appeal. This drinks with a big bitter edge up front, full-on malt backbone and a tangy, woodsy bite. (#6673, 6/24/2017) VastActiv (7413) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2017
Tap at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Color is slightly cloudy light orange with small white head. Aromas and flavors: Some caramel, some fruits, some hops and malts. Quite boring. olio (10434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2017
Tap @ Konttori.mjs (7532) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 25, 2017
Pours hazy yellow color with a large steady head. Sweet tropical fruity aroma, citric hops, some faint apricot. Nice bitterness on the flavor, tropical fruit sweetness, subtle alcohol burn, finishes with sticky sweet caramel. I like the bitterness, a bit too sticky sweet though.
(Keg at Pikkulintu, 20170525) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness and grass. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, grass, white bread, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A rather nice hoppy brew.

Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a golden bronzed color with a slight transparency about it. Light carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace to fill a finger’s worth of white foamy head. Light messy sliding lace.
The aroma had a bright sweet to bitter grassy and citrusy hoppiness up front with an ever so slight malt base in the background.
The flavor had the hoppy bitterness up front and kept the maltiness in the backbone fairly nice - some sweetness, but not too much. Decent little aftertaste blending the malts and hops. Not much of a finish, somewhat bitter.
The feel was about medium bodied with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine.
Overall, pretty good AIPA that I could have again if I could get it again. hopdog (12833) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2017
