This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a semi-hazy burnt orange color with a big foamy white head that dissipated leaving nice messy lacing running here and there.
The smell started off with a dry pine subjugated with an underscore of light dry citrus rind, somewhat bitter but sticky.
The taste rounds out the bitterness of the pine with the dryness of the citrus. Its mainly sticky bitter with a light sweetness underneath and rolling into the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs right where its supposed for an AIPA and allows itself to sit back letting the bitterness take the lead on the harshness of the tongue.
Overall, its a nicely done AIPA that I could have again. mjg74 (3156) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Canned from Capital Market. Lightly hazed medium/dark golden in color. A little dark sediment. Somewhat sweet citric hopped nose. Sweet and hoppy. Good citrus notes with a touch of breadiness to it. Drinkable IPA. A tad off in the flavor. Good bitterness. chinchill (5226) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2015
12 oz can into a pint glass.
Pours clear amber with a very large and very durable white head. Plenty of sticky lacing is left behind.
The hop aroma is not particularly attractive but the flavor is good. Moderately bitter and hoppy for style. JHeath99 (1679) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Can. Pours a transparent golden with creamy off white head. Aroma and taste of initial bitterness, pine, and some citrus. Capa (3400) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2015
Orange with a white head. Aroma is powerful hops and nothing else. Pine and citrus with candied tropical fruits. Medium body. Comparatively, the flavor is a bit restrained in the hop arena but still a major player. Background malts show thru a little here, though. Clean, bitter. Good IPA.

12 oz can poured. Pours a golden orange color with a thin foam head. Sweet, juicy hops aroma. Interesting IPA here. Not an ordinary IPA by any means. Slightly thicker, oily body with a lot of citrus juice like flavor. A lot of hops thoughout with a barely funky citrus, piney finish. Overall I enjoyed this. Love the big hops. Good IPA.

10/21/14. Bottle. Solid IPA. Nothing out of the ordinary. Nice nose with a solid malt backbone. No over the top hop notes.

Miramar Beach, Fl - Chan’s Wine World - 12 oz can. Sparkling, medium copper colored pour, light off-white head. Aroma has somw overwrought too much crystal malt funkines, some wort. Flavor has that same out of balance date-like crystal malt funkiness, just a brief touch of citrus bitterness. Mouthfeel is too tangy and leaves a ad taste in your mouth. Have not been overly impressed with this brewer to date. JStax (7130) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazed copper with a white head. Aroma is sweet, papery, and woody. The taste is mostly sweet and papery. The can isn’t that old, so I’m surprised it has staled so quickly. Medium carbonation. umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Can. Hazy amber pour with a nice 1 finger head that fades away very slow and leaves great lacing. Aromas are candied apricot, caramel, oranges, and light pineapple. Tastes juicy and sweet, especially up front. Hint of bitterness in the finish. Apricot, oranges, and caramel mostly. Some cooked vegetable too. Medium body. Nice oily mouthfeel. Either this is old or it’s just not hopped enough. It’s like drinking oily, sugar juice.
