Goldenrod unfiltered pour with nice head. Hop forward aroma, citrus and mango. Balanced. Great hop aroma and taste balanced by strong malt backbone. An outstanding IPA with a bite, as the can says, tempered by the malt, which gives it a touch of sweetness and nice body.

Thanks to mjg0725 for this can as an extra in a recent trade. Going relatively small tonight after getting overenthusiastic last night. That 2 1/2 hour nap helped though. 12 oz. green can split with my wife.

Pour is a dark opaque orange with minimal carbonation in evidence. Bit of glop oozes out towards the bottom (not even at the bottom) of the can, clearly unfiltered. Nose has initial swell of hops but it's quickly replaced by the scent of pale malts. Bit underwhelming.

Green Head IPA is a malt-driven IPA, which is akin to saying he's a good-looking orc. Malt sweetness gives way to moderate bitterness that's cut only by a fragrant earthiness & small flecks of pine needle.

Not much to this one, just a simple hop profile & maltiness. "Balanced". I like my IPAs bold & aggressive & obnoxious - this one is about the reverse. Not bad, just straight-up mediocre.

Is that a thick foam mattress or a splendid looking head atop that hazy, reddish-orange brew?

Pointed citrus hops with some earthiness present. Malt and a hint of spice sneak in at the right moment.

Fruitier than expected up front with an earthy bitterness coming in quickly in the shallow, followed by orange peel and some caramel malt in the deep.

Lighter side of medium in body and goes down easy.

One might argue this beer has wandered into APA territory, but I must say it's suiting me just fine at the moment.

Had this on draft at Mick Morgan's Pub. A very fine West Coast-style IPA. Very hoppy, c-hops I'm guessin', and some real punch at 7.2abv. Drinking a can now, as we speak. (Not drinkin' in the can, as that's a sign of a problem....) Poured into a North East Brewery pint glass. Eat yer heart out! Seriously a fine IPA, got my attention, which is kind of rare...
