Cask gravity at GBBF 2015. Deep amber colour lasting beige head. Now that is quite nice pear drops pine resin. Lovely balanced. Best American ipa so far.

Pours a hazy amber from a can, sweet piney aroma, metallic bitter flavor, thin mouthfeel. Meh.

Holdwine (1214) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Very hooped, but not obnoxiously. Nice roasted malt provides a good foil for the piney bitterness. Good effort from Baxter, my first from them.

Jabah (455) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2015
They are calling this West Coast style, but seems a little closer to an English style IPA. Lighter orange semi-cloudy appearance. Malt to hop balance leaning more towards the malts on this one. Some bitter citrus in the aroma and finish. Ive tried four of Baxters brews now in their 12-pack vareity, and I usually judge a new brewery that I try on their IPA. Id say that these guys are good and above average, but not great.

tom10101 (5898) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2015
Can (12 oz) bought @ Bier Cellar (Portland, ME). Shared @ Hotel Room Tasting.

Appearance: Clear amber with a small off-white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Caramel, earthy notes, leafy hops, a bit of soap and spicy wood.

Taste: Caramel, soap (a tad more than in the aroma), earthy notes, cedar, leafy notes and mild bitterness.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Earthy and cedar finish.

Overall: Decent. Lack a bit of balance and drinkability. An easy one to forget.

ben4321 (6137) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2015
UPDATED: APR 15, 2015
Location: 12 oz can from Nikkis Liquor, 4/5/15

Aroma: The aroma is citrus, pine, and resin, with a good amount of caramel malt.
Appearance: It pours an amber color, murky, with an off-white head and rather heavy lacing.
Flavor: Medium-plus bitter, citrus, pine, resin, and a strong caramel malt backbone for the style.
Palate: Medium-plus body, soft-to-average carbonation, and a clean, dry finish.
Overall Impression: This is a pretty nice one. It has a bigger than expected malt backbone, and plenty of hop bitterness to hold up to it. Good beer.
