seymour (1924) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Appeared a clear orange amber color with creamy, long-lasting head with some lace. Very aromatic: some grains and bread, but lots of piney, resiny, citrusy hops. Grainbill typical of strong American IPA, which is to say a strong malt sweetness which stands up against huge hops bitterness and flavor. A well-crafted, multi-dimensional IPA. I appreciate they didnt use 100% grapefruity Cascade hops. Medium body, spritzy mouthfeel, warming alcohol. Lingering fruity, bittersweet aftertaste. Certainly one of the worlds finest canned beers. I know what Im packing for the next camping/canoeing trip.

On tap at Oskar Blues. Solid IPA. Although there are difinitely better IPAs, this is a quality IPA at its price point.

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Had from a can. Good classic hoppy flavor and aroma, which was nice to see from a can. Overall though just a decent IPA. I may be spoiled with that style, but it wasnt one of my favorite. Would be good on a hot day though.

nsquishee (640) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Hoppy, floral aroma. Golden orange color. Super hoppy finish. Very bold and chewy, so much so that I thought it might be a double.

RobertDale (5689) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Sample at KC Beerfest 10-22. Comes orange/gold with a nice white head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Taste is florals, citrus and malt. Good balance. Nice IPA.

SSSteve (4006) - - NOV 2, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2011 can. murky amber/brown under a large, foamy, beige head. a mix of caramel malt, tea and piney hops in nose. flavor is a mix of thick caramel and pine mostly but i guess theres some citrus too. almost full bodied. sticky. soft carbonation from the can makes it easy throw a few back, especially considering the 6.8% tag. re-rate a few days later - this beer is quite astringent and soapy sometimes.

Pours amber with medium head. Aroma is pine and citrus, some bread maybe. Taste is very piney, citrus, grapefruits, hops. Medium body, little oily. Good IPA
