agl108 (1128) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2012
12 oz. can from Appalachian Vitner, Asheville. Poured amber with sheets of lacing. Sweet nose, light citrus and grass present. Flavor is of sweet malt and standard citrus profile. Bitter finish, but not tongue stripping. Smooth and sessionable. Nothing sticks out about this beer, just well done overall. A solid canned IPA.

levib2004 (2) - - JAN 3, 2012 does not count
Tastes like drinking one giant hop. Basicaly undrinkable. I honestly gagged after each sip. A beer should have taste. Overloading with hops is not equal to taste. Avoid at all costs.

Pershing (535) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Pours dark copper color with a thin beige head that diminishes quickly. Piney hop aroma and an overwhelming hop bitterness up front that cancels out everything else in the beer. Finishes dry.

Newk (299) - - DEC 22, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 poured into a pint glass from can. Pours a dark orange color with a small head. Very resiny aromas along with hops, christmas spices and citrus aromas. medium bodied with a nice feel. There is a very resiny finish with some spices as well. The flavors are slightly disjointed a bit. a very solid hoppy beer. On the fresher side, but doesnt do anything that is amazing.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2011
Pours a hazy copper colour, head is modest to medium and off-white. Aroma is fruity and of alcohol. Taste is a predictable bitter, however balanced out nicely by the malts. Texture is thinner than expected. (Can)

ChairMissing (20) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Can into a tulip. Pours a deep dark-red orange, with a tan off white head leaving little lacing. A fantastic piney resin smacks you in the face with a slight citrus note at the end. Taste is a little too bitter up front, followed by a sweet middle and dry finish. Overall a good IPA.

doppelthat (47) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass. The aroma is of great citrusy and piney hops. It pours a orangey gold body with a thick sticky off white head that leaves great lacing. It tastesmuch like the nose would suggest, citrusy bitter with a nice bit of sweetness in the body to cut into the hops. Moderatley carbonated and easy drinking, an IPA that you could drink anytime of the year.
