The aroma hit me as soon as I cracked the can open. Smelled like a sack of that medical marijuana that the kids are smoking these days. Tastes great. 8% you say? Yikes. Goes down like a 6%er. Fruity, hoppy. A little tiny bit over sweet, but nothing to complain about. Would be much better if it werent $11.99 for a 4 pack of tall boys, but that doesnt play into my rating. Thats just me being a cheapskate, which Im really not. So, down the hatch! Footballs on!

ClarkVV (6410) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 11, 2017
Draught at random shitty bar in Malden, 2/21/17.
Mostly clear, bright golden-pineapple body is topped by a thick white head.
Big notes of juicy pineapple, ruby red grapefruit, pine and strong honey-caramel from the malt create quite an overbearing, if partially enjoyable (the juicy, tropical aspect) nose. Rather estery and boozy, especially after warming with decidedly little character/personality to it. Rather straightforward PNW hops add citrus, pineapple and such while malts add strong sugar.
In the flavor it starts out juicy and fruity with lots of citrus but quickly adds alcohol and strong sourdough and cake icing-like maltiness to the picture which really detracts and fatigues the palate. Hot and messy with too much bitterness malt and alcohol. Rather thick, sluggish texture.

sawbuck (717) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2017
Aromas of fresh grass, lemon, some fresh hops with pine. light golden color with a thick white head. Sweet malt up front. Crisp. Balanced quickly with a nice covering layer of smooth bitterness. Slight heat from alcohol, mixed with a resinous piney note. Finish is bitter with a warming echo from alcohol. Very dry. Good.

Better than avg dipa but overall pretty unremarkable. Light yellow colour, well balanced, foamy head poured from can, piney, citrusy hop flavours.

fidelis83 (2360) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 22, 2017
Slightly hazy gold pour with a tall, chunky, off white head. Aroma is loaded with citrus, spicy, beery and dank hops, some earthy and tropical fruit as well. caramel, overdone bread, floral hops and a little toffee. Flavor is loaded with citrus notes, juicy, zesty, candied, bitter and sweet citrus. Some earthy hops, and a hint of tropical fruit, fruity and lightly bready yeast, hints of cracker malt. Medium body, slightly chalky, but syrupy entry, medium, sharp carbonation, slightly oily, but dry finish with a decent hop acid bite. Really tasty stuff, just a great, citrus centered, kinda dank IIPA.

LinusStick (3399) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2017
Wow! This beer blew me away and its been a while since an IIPA has done that. Aroma was near perfect. It literally blew me away with hop smells. Grass,pine and grapefruit. Smell was strong and literally burst out of the glass. Pour was a nice light bubbly gold with a half finger off white head. Taste was awesome. Old school west coast IPA with all focus on hops without trying to balance anything. Lemon, grass, dank pine and grapefruit. Slightly hot and deliciously bitter. Medium carbonation with a nice strong bitter finish. Wow

jmohno (1586) - Iowa, USA - MAR 10, 2017
Pours a light gold, fluffy head. Nice hoppy aroma, reminds me of sixpoint. Fresh light fruit and citrus.Crispy light bready malts. Same in taste, nice resin undertone, good really soft malts, light bready and crackery, some light pine evergreen. Really nice, drinks lighter than 8%. Well deserved rating for a lighter in color ipa.

matty (403) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2017
16 oz. can. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with a thick white cap of foam that settles to a film leaving some nice lacing. Faint aroma of pine hops and malt. Medium body, the flavor is a good balance of malt and hops. Finish is sweet and hoppy. Overall, a good beer. Could have several at a time.
