12 oz bottle. Pours clear copper with a medium off-white head with great retention; after it recedes, cobwebby lace is left on the glass. Aroma is super grapefruity, piney. Taste starts out lightly sweet before quickly becoming bitter and remaining that way through the somewhat long finish. Mouthfeel is creamy; carbonation is medium to soft. It’s a real basic Pac-NW IPA, but it hits all the right notes. Excellent.

I was browsing through the liquor store. Looking for an IPA that looked good and was as affordable as possible and I happened along this six pack of 12 ounce cans for a total of like 11 bucks. Looked legit and its 7.3% alc so I bought it. The box says its best if used by today, basically, plus it's not entirely chilled yet but it's still tasty. Satisfied customer and I would buy it again. Was happy to see that it had good reviews on this app but I had already bought it anyway. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I'm very excited to try the infused versions of this IPA now that I know the base ale is so solid. Hop Nosh pour copper orange. Aromatics are floral, grassy, piney, and citrusy. Pine, grapefruit, orange, grass, leaves, and fruit peel flavors. Slightly peppery note. Bitterness is fairly aggressive, but there's some fat caramel malt to keep it in balance. Tasty stuff.

nice and powerful hop fragrant and mellow in stages with a dank kind of caramel malt right in there. really quite velvet like and smooth yet substantial in the body. a bit of fruit mingles in quite nice as it does nothing to disturb the other dimensions doing they're thing.you know the alcohol is there and you like it. nice and kinda tight in the finish with a bit of candy like fruit. tastes aged.

355ml can. Pours a hazy orange with a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet fruity aroma of caramel malt, peach, orange, grapefruit, pine and grass. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, bread, grapefruit, orange peel, peach and pine resin with a dry, hoppy, bitter grass finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Nice.

12 oz. can bb 12/28/2017. Deep orange, almost copper brew. Big spongy foam settles to a sticky meringue topping. Aroma is dank resinous herb, light citrus zest, earthy caramel, bread and a touch of garlic. Flavor is the same, plus some oregano in the middle and then a wooden finish. Almost medium body has smooth low-medium fizz and a dry slant.

hotstuff (5281) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 21, 2017
Rated on 9-17-2017. (Can Best Before 11/13/17) The appearance is a medium sized smooth, frothy cream head that mostly diminished, hazy orange body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, grapefruit, grass, toffee, bready, and malt. The flavor presents moderate bitterness, citrus hops, pine hops, grapefruit, juicy, light spice, caramel malt, and lightly sweet. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a bitter finish and aftertaste to it. It is quite tasty, worth trying and a beer that I would purchase again.
