7/11/13: Picked up a 12oz can at Wilburs to rerate this, and glad I did. Wow, this is great. Aroma if dank hops, grapefruit and pine resin. Flavors of grapefruit, pine resin and bitter
I could drink this everyday. Hoppy, bitter and dank but very drinkable. I love these kinds of IPA’s, wish they all were like this.

Thank you for the can Joe. Pours a light orange/caramel with small but frothy off-white head. Aroma is light bitter hops, noticeable resinous pine, and a bit of orange peel. Nice bitterness up front of the taste and the mid-palate goes bit plain (perhaps some light malt and bitterness) before the taste finishes with a somewhat dry, light hop bitterness. Nothing special or standout about this IPA but I could see this being a nice "working in the yard" beer to crack open on a hot day.

manuchampions (1245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2011
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.

bittermestupid (247) - Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2011
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 (22056) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Gut gehopfter Antrunk mit herben und bitteren Noten. Diese werden aber bereits im Mittelteil schwächer, 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

A really plain and tasty IPA. I drink this about everyday after work. Its refreshing and extremely hoppy....in a good way. A great brew.

Crash (549) - 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 won’t be that great on these beers. Was a bit shocked to see it come out of a can. Nice aroma but, the taste wasn’t that great.

spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2011
12 oz. can from Tyler’s 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.
