The cap came off like a rocket and the head was the biggest i've ever seen. Stong hop flavor though still seemed a little watered down. Extremely high carbonation. I did not like this beer at all. I'd like to give this brew another chance but because it doesn't have a born-on or exp date Im not gonna get suckered into picking one of these again. I'll try it when Cisco Brewers gets smart enough to date their beers.

cought an obvious off bottle this time. Cap came off with a loud blast. Beer poured very cloudy, super carbonated, huge head that stayed and stayed. off flavors of butterscotch and fusil(sp?) alcohol. Sounds good huh? To bad cuz I was looking foward to try this one. Oh well I will give another bottle a try someday hopefully soon

Had on tap at the Squealing Pig in Boston.

Pours a cloudy coppery brew with little off-white head. A very floral aroma from this particular beer backed by the smell of hops. Tastes much the same as it smells. Too flowery and sweet and not bitter enough for either an APA (as it is listed here) or an IPA (as it was listed at the bar). This taste vanishes quickly and leaves you with a slight malt and slightly lemon like taste. I couldn't even drink one.

12 oz. can. Best by : Feb 2012

Thin tan head that levels quickly with a light webby lacing. Medium-dark brown body. Nose fresh cardboard with a little musty peach, like when home brewers use cheaper dried yeast. Taste is similar, though with more of the peach character and a white wine tartness. Bitterness is very sour and doesn't balance well. A little dry. I am not a fan, though I'll give the other brews a try.
