Sampled at Brewery Creek U.S. event @ VCBW. Pours from the can a clear dark amber with a huge fluffy white head. Aroma of citrus hops, caramel malt, a hint of pine and sugar. Taste is bitter and smooth. Abundant hops, malt, citrus, slightly sweet, and a bit floral. Lingering creamy bitterness. Very nice.

12 oz. pours golden amber with a small tan head. Smells of grapefruit, pine, grass, bread and sweet caramel malts. Very strong malt backbone, grapfruit, lemon and pine, very refreshing. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish starts smooth then the long bitterness sets in. Solid beer!

Koelschtrinker (18727) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Gut gehopfter Antrunk mit herben und bitteren Noten. Diese werden aber bereits im Mittelteil schwcher, der Hopfenanteil steigt dagegen. Etwas trocken, deutlich blumig, was durch die Trockenheit aber eingegrenzt wird. Nett, trinkbar, aber nichts Besonderes. 8/9/8/10/8/8

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2011
This one is from the Peoria, Illinois International Beer Festival. Due to lack of space when drinking, my notes wont be that great on these beers. Was a bit shocked to see it come out of a can. Nice aroma but, the taste wasnt that great.

spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2011
12 oz. can from Tylers bottle shop Carrboro Ar: Fresh, hoppy aroma. Lots of grapefruit zest and a bit of resin. Ap: Pretty translucent amber with a frothy off-white head. Very nice laceage. Yeah, I can make up words. T: Caramelly sweetness up front, moderate sweetness for an IPA. Moderate bitterness for an IPA - nice citrus. P: Somewhat creamy body for an IPA with a mild carbonation. O: Excellent IPA. Hop fruitiness, lovely bitterness, touch of malty sweetness.

From the can. Pours a fairly clear amber with a medium, dense white head. Pine and grapefruit make up the nose. Good caramel malt backing to citric and pine hops. Decent
