A nice aroma of hops, stronger than the aluminum of the can. This I found to be fantastic. A nice hop flavor, but a good graininess. Very smooth though also. Excellent. poisoneddwarf (2511) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JUN 23, 2011
12 oz can into tulip. Pours a hazy orange with a medium light-beige head with great retention; leaves some nice lacework. Buttered biscuits is the first thing to come to mind after putting my nose in the glass; lemon rind is lurking in the background. Taste is bittersweet and grainy. Carbonation is medium-high and the body is full. Overall, another really good IPA. Out of the four IPAs I drank tonight, it looks like I saved the best two for last--and both came from a can.

Thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours an amber color with a large white head. The aroma is very dank, with some strong resinous notes, as well as some pineapple and bread notes. The beer is also full of hop flavor. I get a lot of resin, pine and pineapple notes, with a little bit of toffee, which allows the bitterness to be fairly high. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Draft. Clear, bright orange. Nose is subtle, grains and English hops. Flavor is crisp and clean, bready grains, light citrus and grass hops, moderate bitterness, finishes dry. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation. A very easy drinking and low abv IPA, clean and fresh mouthfeel. Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 21, 2011
On tap at Urge in RB/Poway on April 28, 2011. They had 8 different brews from Maui that day. Big rich pour of an IPA. Orange/ruby and heavy in the glass. Tropical fruit sweet and great.

Pours an amber with a white sticky head. Aroma is malt, hops, spices and grass. Flavor is grassy juicy hops, malt, spices grapefruit. Really like the hop profile grapefruit and grassy notes and sweetness balance in this one. Under-rated! Beerdrinker79 (2188) - Idaho, USA - JUL 3, 2011
12 oz. can- Pours deep golden with a nice white 3 finger head and spiderweb lacing. Aroma is very citrusy, grass, a little resin. The flavor is creamy bitter pine and again resin. There is some fruit, but not as much as in the aroma. Body is full to medium, carbonation is relatively high. Not bad, I would have to compare to Maui brewings big swell, not sure which is better.

12oz can. Rating #6. Clear golden copper color with a nice sticky white head that left a good amount of lacing. Real nice citrus aroma, pretty big juicy grapefruit thing going on here. Clean and slightly bitter, more grapefruit wild a mild aftertaste, very enjoyable drinker. (1736) beerbastard (844) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 24, 2011
I like it, a little pricey, but worth the try. Enjoyable nose of gapefruit and other citrus. Great mouthfeel. Taste of sweet malts followed by bitterness, but not quit enough. Then the flavors of toffee, citrus, with a background of lemon and earth like aftertaste. Leaves a mild dryness in the finish. The more I drink it the more I like it! alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUL 14, 2011
Bottle; poured an amber/orange color with a big frothy head. Aroma of orange, yeast, citrus, with some earth and bread. Flavor was a bit more hoppy than expected. Earthy and citrus dominated, and it fades to some caramel and bread. Still quite easy to drink. Nice beer.
