Tonight I am comparing several different IPA's that are all poured from a can. In addition to this one, I am tasting Ska Brewing's Modus Hoperendi IPA, Anderson Valley Hop Ottin' IPA and Santa Fe Brewing Happy Camper IPA.

This beer poured from a can into a large tulip glass is cloudier than any of the other 3, and has a very minimal head. The aroma is nice citrus and floral, but it doesn't translate directly to the palate. This is a bitter IPA with a sort of sour aftertaste.... Not terribly impressed. Reading thru some of the other reviews on BA, I wonder if I am drinking something past it's "drink by" date.

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and slight herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and herbal flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid citrus and herbal hop qualities all around.

Thanks to Eric for this one!
Label printed: MFG. 12.07.13 Guessing that's a best by date.

Bright orange with a light haze after the final pour, fluffy sudsy head that rises above the rim of the glass in an irregular, craggy form. Lots of sticky, bubbled lace in the glass. Tiny champagne trails of bubbles.

Hoppy aroma, grapefruit, candied orange peel, and sweet caramel malt.

Taste is balanced, smoothly sweet malt blends seamlessly with soft citrus notes of bitter grapefruit and sweet orange. Lingering grassy bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Overall a very classic IPA, full of malt and citrus, easily sessionable.

Aroma of heavy grapefruit, quite nice and very American. In the taste, grapefruit, pineapple and sap with a strong bitterness. Citrus hops, also earthy with notes of pine. Medium bodied and has a crisp hop bite. Solid high level of carbonation. Overall this is a treat. Thanks Zach.

Picked this one up since it rated similarly to Hop Knot.

A - 4.0 - Pours a nice orange amber color that's kind of hazy but that's alright. Has a half finger of white head at first that disappears to leave a nice lacing on the glass. The bottles/cans are a very plain design, which doesn't make any difference to me anyway.

S - 4.5 - Hops in your face. Very citrusy/piney smell not accompanied by very much malt at all. Grapefruit and citrus zest.

T - 4.25 - Nice and bitter, with grapefruit flavors from the hops at the forefront. Pine needles are prevalent too.

M - 4.0 - light-medium mouthfeel, very bitter, leaves a nice bitter hop aftertaste like most IPAs, alc completely covered

O - 4.25 - This is a great IPA, especially for the price at $9/6 pack of cans, or $7.50/6 pack of bottles. I don't know why so many breweries are insisting on charging more for cans but it's frustrating, especially in the summer when everyone wants to go swimming/boating/fishing/etc. But hey, at least it's not as expensive as Sculpin or Gubna.

Pours a cloudy amber with a two-finger, billowy near-white head. Good lacing. Great aroma, a pleasant melange of citrus pith, spice, pine resin, and a hint of dank. Some bready notes can also be detected. Solid malt taste with citrus bitterness. Sweet on the back end. Finishes dry. Medium body with nice carbonation. Overall a solid brew, between this and La Cumbre's Elevated IPA, New Mexico is demonstrating an uncanny ability to produce quality IPAs
