A straightforward malt body supports the distinctive bouquet of Columbus and Falconers Flight hops that impart citrus, grapefruit and pine notes characteristic of the West Coast style. F5 is a belligerent hop reckoning.

Once again, the mighty JenRay has come through with a real find for The CANQuest (TM)! I am hoping that, as a hophead, this hits me like an F5 tornado! My alma mater high school is the Home of the Red Tornadoes and a path between the two buildings is named "Tornado Alley".

From the CAN: Lots of tiny iconography, including the recycling arrows, the outline of Oklahoma, crossed stalks of barley, a hop cone, a dripping open tap, a partially filled flask, a wind turbine, a skull & crossbones, a tornado (!), a pop-tab to a CAN and a filled pint glass.; “A straightforward malt body supports the distinctive bouquet of Columbus and Falconer's Flight hops that impart citrus, grapefruit and pine notes characteristic of the West Coast style. F5 is a belligerent hop reckoning."; "India Pale Ale"; “Wind Powered”; “Keep Cold [-] Enjoy [-] Recycle”.

A pint CAN CAN be problematic when doing an inverted Glug, but I was inspired by the loud Crack! and decided to give it a go. This produced two fingers of dense, tawny head with good retention before I had to back off to prevent overflow. The hops aroma filled the room! Color was Amber to Deep Amber/Light Copper (SRM = 11) with NE (or OK)-quality clarity. When I leaned in for a whiff, my sinus cavity filled with a grapefruit-pine admixture and my mouth began to water. At the same time, my hops monkey on my back began to screech and howl and I knew that I was more than ready for a hophead fix. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was all grapefruit on the tongue and in my mouth! Bitter? Hell, yeah! But not as astringent as some that I have CANsumed in this vein. 100+ IBUs, according to the CAN! The finish evinced a cool, dry mintiness, like being in a pine forest during a snowfall. Get the sensation! I should have held this until tomorrow, which is Hula in the Coola Day (01 Febrewary, annually). I would definitely put some of these CANs in my cooler!

Look: 16 ounce can poured into a snifter glass. Half finger head slowly dissipates with decent lacing. Body looks light-medium light with a cloudy light Amber orange color. No sediment however

Smell: A lot going on here strong pine citrus and earthy hops are the first thing to get the nose followed by subtle biscuit and malt

Taste:A lot like what it smells like a mild malt initial taste followed by a pleasantly strong and respective hop presence just like the smell lots of earthy plenty of Piney hop taste that stays with you for about five seconds after swallowing

Feel:for the complexity of the flavor mouthfeel is rather light making this extremely bold and flavorful IPA that can however make a great session beer

Overall: I was very pleased with this beer. as a resident of Oklahoma and knowing our crappy beer laws I was actually really impressed to see Oklahoma produce such a fine beer which of course we have to purchase at a liquor store. If you like IPAs with plenty of hops and not so much malt give this one a shot it will not let you down

Solid brew. Drank it straight out of can so based look on other reviews. A very light IPA in terms of hops I think the caramel sweetness covers it up. Finish is very nice, complicated but just a little bitter and full like I enjoy. A perfect starter IPA for that friend you have that hates them. A solid beer that I will drink again as well.
