3.64/5 rDev +2.5%
Poured 16oz can into imperial pint glass (no date on can) with a 2 finger head that settled fairly quickly and left some good lacing on the glass. Color is a cloudy orange,some noticeable sediment.
Aroma has some citrus/grapefruit, also bready
Taste - there's a good amount of malts here balanced out with a bitter hop bite. some citrus is noticeble, grassy, and there is a somewhat unpleasant bitter finish
Mouthfeel - medium-low body, decent carb, crisp
Overall - I'm not sure how old this is, so it's tough to judge if the age has something to do with the flavor or not. My wife got it for me from Xmas, might have to revisit later

16oz can into an oversized weizen glass.
Appearance: Glowing hazy orange. Unfiltered with lots of sediment floating around. Small white head settles to a thin ring and thick lacing on the glass.
Smell: Floral and citrusy. Hoppy with biscuity undertones.
Taste: Hops out front, floral and leafy. orange rind citrus, hop oil juiciness. Quite bitter with enough of a malt backbone to hold it all together.
Mouthfeel: Bitter, oily hopiness coats the mouth. Medium bodied, carb is ok.
Overall, decent IPA but it's unforgettable and inconsistent, Probably wouldn't buy again.

Pours hazed copper with a white head that slowly becomes a floating island. Some lacing sticks.
The smell is of grapefruit and other citric fruits with a hint of pale malt and touch of caramel.
The taste is of bitter hops backed by biscuity malt and some caramel. It has a refreshing bitter finish.
It is smooth and rather chewy.
A nice representation of the style.

From the can. Sampled on December 9, 2013.
The pour is pale golden yellow with a lot of cloudiness and a lingering foamy off-white head.
The aroma has nice roasted biscuit malts with a little grapefruit and citrus and a piney, floral hop note.
The body is light to medium but also rather creamy.
The taste has a pleasant roasted malt character up front and the bitter hops roar in at the end. This reflects the high-hopped American IPA standard but still seems a little less pronounced.

16 oz can, no date
hazy orangish rust color, off white head that thins but hangs around. nice hoppy aroma - mix of citrus and earthy hops. quite nice. taste is a good balance of good hop flavor and bready malt. slightly bitter finish. medium body, moderate carbonation. fuller mouthfeel, nice.
overall a very good IPA for every day drinking.
