Paid $.29 for a single of this at TW in Chantilly after receiving $2 off my previous purchase.

Appearance: this is a beautifully clear, copper ale with a billowing, white head. Lacing was intricate throughout the British pint glass.

Smell: loads of citrus (i.e., grapefruit, oranges) followed swiftly by piney hops.

Taste: a superb blending of biscuits, fruit, sweet malt (think bread with honey), and a solid (warming) finish. There is a lot going on with this IPA!

Mouthfeel: lightly carbonated with an excellent finish.

Overall: I'd heard really good things about this beer but had put off buying one for whatever reason. Well, not anymore; this stuff is a great representative of the style. The fact that it's out of a can is even more reason to enjoy. From the east coast to the west--Thanks Caldera!

Pours orangish golden with a nice white head. Aroma has some pine, a nice dose of citrus, a little tropical, and some easy going toast. Flavor follows suit. A crisp, lightish medium mouthfeel. Overall, bought a sixer of this blindly and glad I took the gamble. This a great IPA and one I will happily drink again.

A: Bronze, darker, dehydrated urine color, pretty transparent. 2+ fingers of white frothy head, good consistent lacing

S: pleasant pine smell, clean hops

T: quick bitterness that vanishes quick and becomes a pleasant, earthy taste. A little bit of pine and taste and then a random, raw can sugar after taste that is a little pungent.

M: midweight body, oily and stays in your mouth for awhile

O: solid IPA. Bitter but not too bitter and a little sugary finish. Not in my top 5 IPAs but I would definitely drink again.
