3.35/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

350 mL aluminum can poured into pint glass, creating a tall thick foam which clings to the class. Beer is a very pale orange and just slightly hazy. Faint sweet/skunky aroma that doesn't particularly suggest IPA.

Flavor however brings bitterness up front and fills my mouth with a particular hop flavor. The body is just big enough to support the hop load with no detectable sweetness, although the carbonation is a little bit sharp. There's some other flaw here...it's maybe a little bit soapy?

Overall I'm enjoying this more than the Yona Yona Ale but not as much as the Tokyo Black. That said, there are a million better American IPAs out there which are easier to find at a fraction the price.

3.83/5  rDev +13%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Date on the bottom of the can indicates 12/31/13

A: Light yellow or peach in color. Fairly cloudy. Forms a smaller bubbly head. Decent retention and lots of lacing.

S: Not a whole lot going on here. Bready with a mix of mild floral and mild spicy notes.

T: Taste is a bit better and represents an interesting take on the style. Light, but not at all unflavorful. Mild to moderate sweetness. Flavor is sort of lemon-lime, almost Sprite-like, but with a fairly aggressive bitterness (which is not at all Sprite-like). Maybe a little herbal green tea in the mix.

M: On the lighter side of medium. Fairly aggressive bitterness considering the lightness of the flavors of the beer. Medium carbonation.

O: A pretty good beer. It's a different take on the style, less malty than an East Coast American IPA, but with more bitterness and a much more subtle hop-flavor than a West Coast American IPA. Can't justify the price ($5 for a single 12oz can), but I am glad I was able to give it a try.

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

Nice amber color, a little bit cloudy, with about 1 finger of foam and a little bit of lacing on the glass.

I don't typically have high expectations for the smell of a beer that comes from a can, but this one was surprisingly good. Nice bready malt with citris and just enough hops smell to let you know that first sip is going to be good.

Malty and somewhat sweet carmel taste with a clean, but not overwhelming hops finish. If you want to be knocked over by the hops taste in your IPA this might not be your favorite. If you want a bit milder, but still good flavor give this beer a try.

Mouthfeel is smooth and well carbonated.

A little bit different from most American IPA's due to the sweeter carmel flavor and milder hops, but still very enjoyable.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours medium golden amber with a fine half finger white head with great retention and lacing; nice active carbonation. Great aroma of melon and tropical fruit, caramel and bready malt and light citrus hops. Flavor is very malty with caramel and bready malt, citrus, lightly piney hops and a nice amount of stone and tropical fruit. Medium bodied with a pleasant creaminess. A nice take on the malty style of IPA with good hop support and juicy flavors in the background. It could be a bit attenuated in hops because it may be an older can, but the hops still hold their own. A nice malty IPA.
