3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz can. Pours reddish light amber with thick foamy head. Aroma is faint floral hops with some weird off notes. Taste is malt-forward for an IPA, with strong bready malts and unexpected Belgianish floral spice notes. Grapefruit and pine hop notes are present but definitely in the background. Kinda an odd beer, tasty nonetheless.
12 oz can poured. A solid, imperial-ish IPA in an extremely affordable six pack. A very good start. Enjoying these out of the can, paired with basketball, slowly waiting for baseball season to start, I felt it was appropriate to pour this into the can shaped glass for the rating. A dense golden orange pour with a mountain range of foam lingering head. A nice, toasty caramel malt front runner, that is the memorable feature in this. Bold hop bitterness late. A little different than the typical IPA I for some reason expected when I picked this up. Very tasty malt bill. Good beer here. Fatehunter (2603) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2016

On tap at the Smith Tower observation deck bar - amazing, by the way. Murky apricot pour with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet orange and bright citrus. Taste is citrus, a little grassy, sweeter up front with a stiff and lingering bitterness. Strong yet balanced. robforbes (2260) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2016
Pours a cloudy amber with a large head white and good lacing.
Taste is of wild yeast, tart, hops, caramel. teamsale (294) - Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Can from Whole Foods. Pours a good looking, strong head. Cloudy, golden amber appearance. Smells of burnt tires, pine, melted plastic, and aspirin. Lacing is unusually splotchy and inconsistent. Overwhelming taste of aspirin with hints of grapefruit. Bitterness is good but heavily disrupted by the aspirin. Finishes with even more aspirin. Easily the most disappointing IPA I have experienced.

Can. Gusher! Hazy deep golden, massive head. Grapefruit and pine, sour tang, scathing aspirin bitterness. Not enjoyable. KansaiBeerLvrs (5301) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 12, 2015
Can from World Beer Market via Rakuten. Served in a pint glass. 7.6% this orange copper beauty has a fantastically enticing hop bouquet giving off resinous dank floral & fruity notes. Thick a rich garden with the nurturing mulch and heady scent of blooming flowers and ripe citrus fruit. Med-full bodied the finish is very bitter and dry. The taste is a hop punch to the tastebuds, not as balanced as the nose just earthy bitter pine. Man this is bitter! Too bitter for my tastes. marcus (10560) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Can shared by haggerty. Pours orange amber with a modest off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a very bitter grapefruit finish. Sledutah (7789) - Utah, USA - FEB 12, 2015
16oz can picked up at Total Wine Theydon_Bois (20437) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
A volcano erupted when I opened it up. Lost half of the can on my desk, floor and finally made it to the garbage can. Pours cloudy golden with a huge off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is floral, dusty, grapefruit and pine. Flavor is bitter grapefruit, pine, fruity and very bitter, dry
Not balanced, a very bitter finish. Would have been footbalmed if I had a whole can.

Nose is bitter orange, citric pith, melon, orange squash, earthy hop tunes.
