16 oz. can. Poured burnt orange with skim of head. Sweet malt, caramel, grass. Bitter finish. Malt dominates. Not very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can (with 7% on the label). Pours a dingy orange with a medium head (As a complaint, the can was overfull and spilled a bit when opened. Even after this is was full to the lip.) Aromas are pleasant enough. Orange, faint spice, sweet caramel and honey. Nice. Flavor is decent too. Nothing terribly interesting, but good solid IPA. Malt and hops balance out nicely, crisp bitterness that starts and finishes the beer.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is kind of weird. I’m smelling feet, malts, and something I can’t quite put my finger on. It’s dirty smelling and unpleasant. Thankfully the taste is better. Light hop bitterness, light alcohol, pretty malty. Not great, not terrible. Perfectly mediocre IPA.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Nope, this is the 7 percenter from a pound can. Big thick viscous looking cloudy pour. Sweet, somewhat alarming mild candy aroma. Nice creamy rocky head quarter inch lasting thick. First taste is medicinal roto-tiller right down your tongue into the back of yer long bitter throat. Big personality wew. Strong difficult chewing on grapefruit rinds mixed with fresh pine tree sap thing dude. Aggressively distinctive wew. Repressive and bitterly nasty nellie. Eerily hidden volatility right up to the last gulp. Did I say WEW?! I better go check the 4 percenter version, probably more to the liking of my girlie taste buds.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a horrible IPA. I get the feeling the 4% is not so good because...Utah ABV laws. Chalky, tinny, some grass.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2014 Moab, UT - Buck’s Grill - 16 oz can. Hazy dark orange pour with a frothy snow white head, nice lacing. Aroma has a heavy spruce presence with a touch of mint. /solid citrus bitterness with a touch of caramel, some nuttiness. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Overall, a solid IPA - went well with my Buffalo Meatloaf.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Brewforia. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma is rather treacle/caramel. Med body. Flavor is treacle with some sort of hop, but this is really quite malty. Now it seems a bit pineapple. There’s a bitterness. Quite different.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caramel aroma with some piney hop notes, pours a hazy orange-amber with a full white head. Nice assertive hop bitterness, which the malts fail to
balance out. Moderate body, with a long lingering bitter finish. If you like your IPA’s balanced, stay away from this one.
