Sent to me in montana from my brother who lives in boise. He speaks highly of this one so we'll see what's up. Right off the bat it pours a bright orange, reminiscent of blackfoot single malt IPA. Not much of a head, creamy white lacing left around the rim. Aromas are of orange rind and herbal hops. Very piney and juicy on the nose, alittle baked bread, awesome IPA aromas. A touch of caramel malt squeezes through to round out the nose also. Killer. Tastes of piney baked bread and a huge presence of bitter hops from the get go. Wild midpalate, large hop-bitterness and medium presence of citrus fruit and orange. Good, but kind of disappointing compared to the nose. Mid-level carbonation is expected for the style. This thing has a bunch of bite. I like it. Its not the best IPA I've ever had but definitely not the worst. The strange stale bite through the mid-palate has me guessing and the bready bitterness definitely overshadows the fruit. Anywho this is still a quality brew form Idaho. Thanks bro for the beer

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Cloudy amber with about one inch of cream color head. Good retention and lacing.
Smell is grain and light pine.
Taste is rich piney hops with a strong malt backbone. More balanced than most IPAs makes for less dryness in the finish.
Mouthfeel is plenty good with just enough carbonation to keep it spicey on the tongue.
Overall a tasty brew that veers from the straight and narrow but still has plenty of hop bitterness to be interesting. Give it a try if you can find it.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Firestone restaurant pint glass
From: Whole Foods in Boise, Idaho
Price: $8.99 for a mix and match variety 6-pack
Purchased: Dec. 19, 2013
Consumed: Dec. 22, 2013
Misc.: N/A

Poured an orange amber semi-clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy creamy white head. Semi-layered lacing along the sides of the glass. Very good retention.

Smelled floral hops right away. Dug a little deeper and got resin hops, citrus hops bitter grapefruit, caramel malts and orange rind. The skunky resin hops is the lingering nose.

Tasted a little less skunky than the smell. Got citrus hops, grapefruit, orange rind, vegetables (onions mainly) and some orange. Very bitter.

Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Bitter finish.

This beer was up and down for me, but altogether it was trending down. I’d have it again, but it was no near a go-to beer.

Can poured into a pint glass. Slightly hazy pale body, with a firm, latte-like foam head you could eat with a fork.

Smells like a brewery. Citrusy hops with a biscuity malt back. Grapefruit notes really shining through.

That's great. Easy drinking, well balanced. Lingering light hoppy aftertaste. An IPA that satisfies people who love IPAs and is tolerable for people who think they can't handle IPAs.

On the lighter bodied side for an IPA, almost sessionable. Incredibly clean finishing.

Stands right with 21A's Brew Free or Die among the best IPAs I've had from a can, not to mention one of the better overall.

3.84/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: murky medium-orange hue with a moderate effervescence and a lot of tiny floaties. Head poured two thick fingers of frothy ivory foam with good retention and leaving a nice lace as it dissipates.

Smell: lightly sweet malt with a good citrusy flavor; smooth and tangeriney rather than harsh and piney. I like it.

Taste: quite malty for the style; the hops are pulled back quite a bit compared to the aroma. Bitterness is moderately strong and quite smooth. Good, but it somehow lacks balance, or perhaps just isn't hop-flavorful enough to counter its maltiness.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a satisfying and mouth-filling creaminess. Good stuff!

Overall: this is a good beer, but I just find it somewhat imbalanced. Not bad at all, but perhaps not something I'll be seeking again.

3.84/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a very cloudy medium orange. Big fluffy white head. Head fades away slowly with decent retention remaining behind. Decent splashes of lacing.

S: A nice sweet citrus aroma. Lots of caramel.

T: Some spicy herbal hops combined with a little grapefruit and pine. Bready malt (guess I was imagining the caramel), borderline toasty. Mild bitterness in the finish but not much. Well balanced. More APA than IPA I feel sometimes.

M: Medium bodied and surprisingly nice for 6.2%.

O: A surprisingly nice and well balanced IPA. Great balance of flavors and goes down super easy. Relatively simple but I really enjoyed this one.
