(can) citrus hops aroma. Decent citrus hops flavor. OK IPA - props for the can. Braudog (6898) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Cool can. Classic American pour, light orange-amber with a decently sudsy head. The aroma is wonderfully oily and full of wet pine, and the beer is a glass of acidic fun, a delightful example of good ol’ northwestern hop juice. (#4129, 6/4/2011) Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2011
From the can at SAVOR 2011.
Pours a clear golden color with an average white head and a slight amount of white lacing on the way down. The nose brings quite a bit of citrus hop character, mostly tending toward grapefruit. Quite nice. The flavor has just a touch of malt in the background and is instead focused on a fairly-heavy hop presence. Orange and grapefruit come through and perhaps a bit of a floral character. Medium body with good bitterness. Nice and dry. Solid brew.
Serving type: can

A decent enough US IPA, but lacking in body. Unusual given the description talks of "plenty of body", but of the OG really is 1.057, the FG would be around 1.010, and while FG doesn’t always relate to body, this is a fairly thin beer. Anyway, ignoring that, it looks and smells great, and I could imagine drinking a fair few of these. RedSox2004 (2000) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Copper/orange with a bubbly off-white head and decent lace. Mild citrus hops aromas offset by biscuity malts and black tea. Malty sweetness, almost like cookie dough, with a gentle hops bitterness that appears then quickly goes away. Medium body, chewy mouthfeel, and a lingering malt sweetness.

Aluminum can from BevMo: Created a thick fluffy topping of foamed head while the liquid was a golden honey color. Surprisingly, the aroma is dominated with floral hops that suggest citrus fruits such as grapefruit or orange with just a touch of grained wheat like malts. As for the flavor, there is a bold taste of bitter hops that taste earthy with notes of honey, pollen, pine, lime, grapefruit, and perhaps orange. Definitely a tasty IPA from an aluminum can of all sources. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Nice light amber pour. Aroma is loaded with resin, grapefruit peel, caramel, honey, unripe stone fruit. Flavor follows suit. A nice hop bite. Really a nice combination of hops and just enough malt sweetness to keep this one really drinkable. Nephilium (1821) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2011
This starts with a caramel aroma, with just a touch of hops. Pours a clear reddish-amber, with a full white head. The flavor is a nice strong blast of hops, with a moderately long finish. Nice and easy drinking, a very nice IPA from a can. bluejacket74 (1995) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2011
12 ounce can. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy amber color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention is pretty good, and there is a lot of lacing left behind on the glass. Aroma is herbal and citrusy hops, along with a bit of sweet malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, it’s mostly hops with some sweet malt noticable too. There’s also a nice lingering bitter hoppy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s slick with moderate carbonation. It’s easy enough to drink. I think it’s a good solid IPA. I’d buy this one again in the future. VengefulOdin (193) - , Missouri, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Thank you Rate Beer Mobile. Color is a light amber, new penny copper. Zesty hop aroma promises some big IPA flavors. After some disappointing beers last night things are looking up. Pretty cloudy for an IPA. First taste delivers punchy hop bitterness while malt sweetness coats the tongue. IPAs as a rule are never balanced but I like the caramel malt backbone this offers. The best beer I’ve had on this trip, by far.
