12 oz can served chilled into a shaker pint glass.

Ultra Gnar Gnar is a hazy copper color with thick white head. It has good retention and lacing.

Aroma has a mineral or metallic quality that is unique but not particularly pleasant.

Flavor is balanced and has good depth but doesn't have much In the way of hop taste. It's malty with caramel and toasted grains and there's good bitterness from the hops but it's more grassy and earthy than citrus and pine.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated. Balanced for the style.

Overall a decent PNW IPA but the aroma brings it down.

Poured from a can.

Appearance: copper. Hazy. Thick foamy head.
Smell: oranges and flowers. Caramel.
Taste: cracker malts. Orange peel, grapefruit peel. Pine needles. Lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel: medium carbonation. Medium high body. Thick-ish.
Overall: this is a pretty decent IPA. Would be much better if the finishing hops were not so harsh.

12 oz can from "Lifesource" in Salem OR
$1.79..no longer retired and now 6.7% alc.
Good looking beer here..hazy amber with a good looking thick and creamy inch high head.
Nice spicy ,fruity,pithy hop aroma with a great malt caramel backing.
More "dank" in the taste and with hints of orange pips..malt is strong in this one.
Good creamy substantial mouth feel for style.
Typical good PNW style IPA.
