12 oz can pours copper in color with a full, creamy head. Dry hop aroma, lots of resiny pine, some malt. Medium bodied, with a nice drinkability. A little bitter to the palate with a slightly metallic aftertaste, this one maybe suffers a little coming out of the can. Still a very good IPA.

My personal favorite so far! Strong hop and pine scent leaving a long and strong pine and grapefruit on the palate which is pretty bitter jmohno (1612) - Iowa, USA - OCT 6, 2011
It bursted out of the can upon opening pouring a 2-3 finger head and fitting perfectly in my pint glass like most beers dont. Clear reddish copper beautiful color.It has a very creamy almost all white head with loads of lacing with a complex aroma of herbal floral,fruit,spice,peppermint, and sweet malt. The hop flavor is more dominant in herbal/resinony pinewith the same complex flavor of fruit/floral ,mint and sweet malt and a good amount of roasty malt. An overall taste makes it seem minty.Bittering fades shortly but leaving pine in your mouthThis has a very good hop profile with sweet caramel roast malt, a delicious good tasting ipa DSG (14685) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 6, 2011

355ml can paired with mild spiced meat at Olympen. Unclear, dark amber body. Moderate white head that left fine artworks on the glassware. Aromatic with floral and fruity hops. Lovely taste of dark oranges, grapefruits and pine needles added by herbal hops and a touch of sweet malts. Solid bitter support to the finish. Prima version of an IPA (Oslo, 26.09.2011). mhkmurals (12) - Kansas, USA - SEP 30, 2011
Carmel orange reddish color, pure white bubbly foam head, medium carbonation. Smells spicy with strong hopsy pine/citrus notes. Very thin, very easy drinking. Citrusy american hops flavor, the red wheat adds a nice balance to the bitterness. This is the best canned IPA I have ever drank. Great example of the American take on the India Pale Ale.

Cans. Deep amber, almost copper color with stable cap. Nose is bright minty hop, paving the way for a mouthful of the same. Not quite mouthwash level but very minty! Finishes clean and earthy. Balanced, very nice. Sort of a blackberry-mint flavor profile. abemorsten (3593) - Mosterřy, NORWAY - SEP 25, 2011
Shared can at Cardinal. Hazy, deep golden with a three finger thick, light brown, creamy head leaving good lacing. Herbal and floral nose as well as fresh hops and toasted malts. Sweet, bitter and light acidic flavors with caramel present. Medium to full body. A smooth and refreshing drink leaving a dry tongue. pineypower (3295) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - SEP 19, 2011
Can from trip to NC. pours out a moderate orange/golden color with a small off white head. Aroma is citrus, light floral hops, slight pine and some sweet malts. Taste is much the same, decent hop depth, with a nice balance. Solid IPA, and I like the label....and the fact it comes in a can.
