(16oz can thanks to Mora2000) clearish medium gold, lasting offwhite bubbled head with a ring around the edge. Nose is very fresh, orange pulp, agave, candy sugar, smells fantastic. Taste is a little syrupy, light grapefruit, caramel, bits of candied orange, the linger is pretty floral, well carbonated but medium thick syrupy body.

Thanks to Pawola22 for sending me this can.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has quite a bit of biscuit malt and the resulting sweetness, as well as some pine and a little bit of orange citrus. The flavor has a lot of toffee and caramel malt in it, with some pine and a hint of grass from the hops. Low to medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. thornecb (6152) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Pours deep amber into an English pint. Off-white micro head with good retention recedes leaving sheet lacing to coat surface. Sour caramel aromas. Soft with sour caramel and resin front to back and into the lasting earthy finish. ganache (6089) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Pint can. Nose lightly sweet and citrus, a little dank, and big on pine. Pours orange with a rocky cream head. Taste strongly bitter with strong dough and spice, seemingly a rye-like flavor component, light alcohol and warmth, big caramel and pine. There is citrus, yes, but bigger floral character, and mildly forrestal. Lightly soapy and cleansing, light-medium resin, touch scorched/burned character and some deeper malt development. Full body and very heavy, but boldly flavorful. Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - MAY 4, 2015
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy bronzed orange color with a one and a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving some messy lacing.
The smell had a sharp sweet to bitter citrus blend coursing it’s way between bittersweet pine. A nice caramel malt backbone graces underneath.
The taste was balanced between the sweet citrus and bitter pine and levels out to the malt backbone nicely. A nice balanced citrus sweetness to pine aftertaste leads to a semi-dry citrus finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a wonderful sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. Bitterness seemed balanced as well to have a nice harshness against my tongue.
Overall, this was a really nice fairly crushable AIPA that I would love to have again and possibly even just drink from the can on a hot Summer’s day.

coppery with small head. not surprisingly, this is very hoppy -- like a mid abv imperial ipa .slight pineyness. very bitter and the bitterness lingers nicely. not much in the way of citrus, but very full flavored. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - DEC 9, 2013
draft, this one was bad, a platic chemical flavor and aroma, overwhelming and cant really taste much else, like cleaning supplies altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Can from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors. Bought in Can randomly and what a pleasant surprise. Hazy orange body with big head. Nose is hoppy, floral. Very good taste of hops, graperfruit and floral. With just a really nice bitter kick to it. Excellent. hayduke (5731) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 10, 2014
This was courtesy of Doran in Missouri. Thanks. Poured amber with a big white head and excellent lacing. Nose of caramel malts and citrus. Medium body. The flavor is both floral and citrus and there is a solid bitterness that continues on into to the finish. Well crafted IPA and quite enjoyable. nearbeer (5665) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Pint on tap. Orange-golden with a lasting ring of bubbles. Nose of florals, citrus, caramel and resin. Tastes of caramel, grapefruit, resin and a long finish of wooden bitterness. Light-medium body is watery and sessionable.
