Honey color in the glass with a medium head. It has tropical fruits, citrus and major hops. It has a malty taste up front, resin, mangos and a caramel sweetness. Well balanced with a great finish. b33r (875) - Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Deep orange color with medium diminishing fluffy off-white head. Aroma has huge fruity, floral hops. Flavor is surprisingly malty up front with a bitter finish. Seems a little smoky or woody like a cigar. Very interesting bold IPA jpowings (2) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2013 does not count
A strong beer to go with it’s strong flavors. Must like IPA’s and has a good overall taste. Doesn’t pair as well with spicy food as other beer of this style, but most those don’t boast the abv of this. Johnsense (1668) - - JAN 29, 2013
Amber pour, small head. Pine and citrus fruit in the aroma. Taste is fairly balanced with pineapple, pine, grapefruit and mango balanced out with sweet caramel. Medium body, very sticky. On tap at pizza plant Aniela (4216) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2013
This is a canned asskicker! Deep copper beer with a offwhite head. Hoppy, malty, roasted, fruity and caramell aroma. Hoppy, floral, bitter, herbal and fruity flavour. Nice surprise :-)

Wow! This will kick your butt if your not paying attention! Big pop of hops, aroma and taste. Very good. Light IPA hearted, be aware. Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Deep, clear amber pour with an eggshell head. Lots of caramel and resinous hops on the nose. Dark on the palate with a big resinous hoppiness. tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 25, 2013

The canned beer re-revolution continues apace with this subdued IPA.
STYLE: American IPA
LOOK: Thinner than I remember, translucent paprika. I’m not sure body is the top priority for a brew intended to be consumed on the patio. A decent enough head that gives when you go and sways when you pull – enough, in fact, that I can steal a sip without frothing my lips.
NOSE: Back to basics in the right kind of way. Pine, orange peel, sugared grapefruit.
MOUTH: Solid, clean, and not at all sweet. Twigs, mellow grapefruit, a little too malty to pop. A wee bit light on the finish, maybe a lack of carbonation, maybe intentional.

on tap at Alto Cinco. Nice hoppy nose with frothy but minimal head. Bitter hops taste but a slightly sweet finish. Solid beer. Would buy again
