It's odd with 4 Hands BC - we get distribution here in PA, but it is scattered to the point that I CAN find some in PHL, some in LNC & still others were returnees with me from CHI. I dig the graphics on the CANs & I am anxious to CANduct a horizontal tasting/review of their CANned beers. When it is over, if you know of a CAN of theirs that I missed, let me know. I would also like to take credit for the approved pic that accompanies this entry.

From the CAN: "Please [recycle]; "Pairings[:] Mild Curry[,] Grilled Red Meat".

The Crack! was loud & the CAN was full, so I went with a gentle Glug since that is my new thing. It really did not require much coaxing on my part to raise a dense, foamy finger of eggshell-White head with great retention. Color was Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity & so the Gelt Gang of Midas, Croesus & Mammon stopped by for a taste. Nose was a fruity admixture of tropical passion fruit and citrusy orange-grapefruit. My mouth waters unCANtrollably in the presence of such beers! Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was certainly hop-forward with notes of mango, citrus and even some minty pine, but it also had a biscuitiness from the malt that kept it from being too much for a casual drinker. I CAN drink hop tea, but I get that such bitterness is not for everyone. The finish had a black pepper bite along with an orange zest sweet bitterness. Speaking of tea, this really reminded me of Orange Pekoe Black tea. It was really a mellow drink and perfectly timed as this is my second-to-last 4 Hands BC beer horizontal tasting. I'd also like to add Chinese food to its pairings.

Bright shiny yellow gold body, topped by billowing white bubbly foam.

Bursting aroma full of citrus, big oranges at the forefront.

A bit of firm sweet malt at the beginning, quickly engulfed by juicy fruit. Mostly fruit with only a little bitterness lurking below.

Smooth light-medium mouthfeel, not prickly.

An IPA well worth trying.

12 oz can poured into a snifter

A: copper color great clarity good carbonation good retention on the glass

S: Exactly what I love in an IPA some pineapple maybe over ripe grapefruit

T: This beer does it well slightly sweet, a little grapefruit, pineapple, mango just makes you want to keep pounding these back great taste it's not overwhelming very balanced

M: it's medium bodied it lingers in the aftertaste but pleasantly and even with the linger has a crisp bite and clean finish

O: Fantastic IPA this is a beer that could easily be a staple think a White rajah just an overall well done IPA. Should be easily obtainable and you won't be disappointed it being canned freshness might last longer so you could step outside your IPA freshness boundary.

Wow!!! NICE!!! This is a great beer. This is what Z' Dust used to be....great job. The beer poured a copper clear with good white head that laced. The scent carried a pine with sweet citrus. The taste was evenly balanced a very very good. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this beer is amazing!!!!!!!!!!

12 oz. can poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear orange amber body. Medium white head and a thin collar.

Smell - Intense citrus. Orange. Grapefruit.

Taste - Orange citrus. Grain immediately. Some sweetness. Body drops off leaving just sweetness and bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Pretty light. Moderate bitterness.

Overall - The body is its weakness. Smelled really nice, but didn't live up.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Bottled date of 08-17-14, so at the ragged edge of age, But worth a gamble

Pours gold/bronze with 3 fingers of eggshell colored head. Stellar lacing & head retention, keeps a super tight head all the way down

S: Lemons & grapefruit

T: Dryness, grapefruit, lemons & pineyness, some breadyness & pears as well up front. More dryness, pineyness, pineapple & grapefruit as this warms. Finishes crisp, with a little mineral hoppyness, some toffee & plenty of grapefruit & pine with much dryness

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, nice balance

Would love to try this fresher, but damn good as it is, probably the best I've had from these guys to this point in time. Drinks very easy

Got his as an extra in a trade and tried it without anything prior knowledge at all. This beer definitely has the tropical mosaic flavor to it and that is one of the hops I love. It also has a little bit more of a dank flavor to it as well, maybe a background from Columbus, Chinook or Simcoe? Overall I would say this is a very tasty IPA, worth having if you have access to it.

Inch high white, wispy head on top of a clear, orange body. Very strong mango and hops with just a little bit of citrus in the scent. The taste is a little to overpowered by the mango, with not nearly enough hops in my opinion. The feel is medium to light, nothing special. A nice extra to receive, but a pretty run-of-the-mill IPA. The mango was a nice touch, but should have been better balanced.

Pours a nice amber orange sort of rusty, with light carbonation and a one finger head.

Love me some Mosaic hops! Always brilliantly citrusy with such a complex flavor and aroma profile.

Citrus, pine, malty buttered rolls, delicious.

Mouthfeel is lighty carbonated but balanced in flavor, goes down like water.

Overall, an amazing IPA to try if you can get your hands on it. Glad to see it in a can too!
