Clear amber. Decent white head. Solid pleasant IPA. Balanced. Great drinkability. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Can with a smudged out date code. Pours with a clear golden yellow hued body and a small off white head. Aromas are mildly malty, toasty bready, citrus, tropical, tropical fruit, melon. Milder notes if hop dankness and tamarind. Assertively bitter, yet clean, crisp and dry flavors. Slightly faded papaya, mango and tangerine. Dry, slightly boozy for a sub 7% beer. Possibly not extremely fresh , but still quite good and without an interfering malt character . mp_lane (101) - Indiana, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Pours clear pale color, thin white head, some lacing. Aroma is citrus not overpowering. Great balanced flavor, drinkable.

c/o Boltz7555 - my 1st New Mexican beer!
Aroma - floral and piney hops, some subdued caramel malt
Appearance - body color is golden; the liquid is clear with the tiniest amount of nucleation; the head is about 2" white with rockiness the head very slowly dissipates and still remains rocky!; there is also a nice dappled foamy lacing! Very sexy!
Taste - there are definite ripping hops West Coast variety, and some type of herb that is very unique that shows up at the end about 2 seconds later. Almost tastes like fresh sage!!! That’s a first! You really need to focus on it.
Palate - body is light to medium; the texture is thin, not near oily at all; the carbonation average; the finish is moderate in length and has this herbaceous sage like note, truly unique a 1st.
Not sure how to feel about the sage like quality in the finish. It’s kind of puzzling. JohnGalt1 (1721) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 19, 2014
12oz can (extra!) received in a recent trade with Bennetj17... Thanks a bunch Bennet!!
Pours clear golden... foamy white head... decent lacing with only okay retention.
Nose picks up pretty big spruce with juicy tropical fruits... no citrus surprisingly, interesting... a bit too much pale maltiness mutes the hops a bit IMO.
Flavor pretty much mirrors the aroma perfectly... very balanced... very drinkable... not the best IPA ever, but certainly crushable.
Thanks again Bennet... I hope you like your beers as much as I am digging mine!!

Not as good as I expected based on the ratings. The head didn’t last long enough. Nice citrus aroma, a bit too bitter. It comes off as a little flat. mike5326 (1788) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Poured from a can. Cloudy orange color, small white head. Nice sweet Citrus and hops smell. Kind of flat body with a smooth hops flavor and a mildly bitter finish.

Aroma of grapefruit with a cloudy caramel color not much head. A bitter taste of grapefruit rind with a chalky bitter palate. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Good! Mellow. Low bitterness. Enjoying the sweetness. Definitely a go to IPA. Particularly if you like your IPAs on the sweet malt side.

This is a nice orange color new with a woe head of mixed bubbles. It’s a pretty good IPA with an emphasis on pine hops. It’s a little sweet and as it warms, that sweetness brooms out some round citrus notes. It is a bit heavy on the palate for my tastes but otherwise not a bad beer.
