12 oz can from Shig, thanks for hauling this up for me. Hazy golden yellow with a small head. Aroma of bubble gum/cotton candy, floral hops and cereal grain. Flavor is mildly sweet malt and a medium hop bitterness. Medium body with soft carbonation. Nice IPA, thanks Shawn.

TURDFERGUSON (4056) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Can, thanks SHIG! Hazy golden with small white head, adequate lacing. Nose is well balanced, some citrus and tropical fruits, grass, as well as some more meatier malts. Fairly clean, easy drinking, light citrus, much more herbal, toasted malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MacBoost (1847) - Victor, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy light orange color with a huge frothy head, almost akin to a draft pour. Aromas of bright tropical fruit, flowers, perfume. Taste is also very nice, but there is a big let down in the ultra thin mouthfeel. This has the potential of being a great beer, but I just can’t get over the watery mouthfeel. Still, all in all, a good beer though. Like.

Can @ Exira Beer Summit III. Pours a bit hazy orange appearance with an off white head. Juicy grapefruity, mango, tropical fruity aroma. Slightly bitter, mango, pineapple fruity, a bit floral flavor. Pretty decent.

Can @ Berliner Weisse Takeover Ulfborg, 2013. Pours cloudy golden with a off white head. Exotic fruit. Floral and herbal. Bitter and dry. Hoppy for sure.

mansquito (6067) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Whole Foods, Bowery 12oz can ($3): Pours a light orange with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit. Taste is mildly bitter with mostly just really fruity hops coming through. This is a mild IPA that manages to have a very American, west coast character to it. I suppose they should get props for that.

deekyn (1459) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 21, 2014
A- pours a clear gold with a white head and terrific lacing. S- some usual suspects bit they burst from the glass. Great citrus from bitter orange, lemon zest to some passion fruit. These tickle then back of the nose especially towards the end. Dough and cracker malts are abundant with some rich and sweet smelling wet pine. M- body seems light for this beer but it has a good tackiness to it. T- citrus comes through again with the orange and ruby red grapefruit leading the way. Sourdough bread and pine mingle in the middle with some mineral and sharp grassy quality. Minimal amounts of earth in there towards the clean and quenching end.

Draft pours clear copper with a one finger white head. Nice citrus and pine aroma, grapefruit (but it’s not purple!). Medium dry, hoppy on the finish, citrusy. Resinous and lively. Pretty good.

Can shared at the WWWW beer tasting at iphonephan’s. Gold with small white head. Loads of pine hops with some resin and sweet caramel malt. Decent.
