Pours a clear bronze with 2 finger head leaving a generous proportion of lacing. Toasted malt and caramel in the background dominated by strong bitter hops that are primarily pine and small citrus. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Very long and bitter finish. Very good beer. coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Can. Pours pale golden with a large white head. Aroma is floral, pine, citrus -- really nicely hopped -- and some caramel. Flavor is pine, citrus, caramel. Great balance. Quite bitter but flavorful. Mouthfeel is full, slightly oily. alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Gorgeous bright copper color, clear, nice head, beautiful lace.
Smells great. Tons of fruity hops. Piney, floral, citrus hops, with just a touch of background malts and earthy aromas.
Tastes lovely, piney citrus hops is dominant, but a flowery, almost lilac flavor seems to dance behind the ample malt base.
Mouthfeel is awesome! It’s so rich and thick, smoothly carbonated.
Overall this is about the most perfect canned IPA (for fishin’) that possibly could exist, in the history of ever :-) PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2012
12 oz. Can. I can’t remember the last time a brewer’s description was so on the money! A great IPA. Strong grass, pine hop scent mellowed to a slightly citrus hop. Dark copper pour, burnt orange, fizzy foamy head dissolving to a film. Medium bodied, slightly sticky palate of a full character. Strong citrus pine hop taste, big bitter.

Dark amber, small off-white head, heavy on the caramell in both aroma and flavor though with notes of pine tree and sweet fruit. Ends with a long bitter, resiny and piney flavor. A tad too heavy on the caramell for my taste, with too much bitter hops in contrast to aromatic. dwm1034 (784) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 19, 2012
From can...pours a rich copper with one finger head...no, not THAT finger! Rich hoppy nose and initial citris taste...Medium body with a delicious bitter end...very tasty jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2012
From a can poured a copper color with a good amount of head. Hoppy bitter flavor with a quick finish. smpatrick55 (1) - - JUN 15, 2012 does not count
This is one of the worst beers I have ever tasted. I asked for something a little different and got undrinkable. Result - 3 full cans left at the bar. Just 3 opinions though. b3shine (8872) - Indiana, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Can to pint. Looks good; a deep (malty) amber with nice carbonation and lacing. Smells solid; a good balance of hops and malt. Tastes good; bitter! Mouthfeel is average. A great IPA!
