4.58/5 rDev +25.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
A: Translucent copper orange with a white head.
S: Tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, passionfruit, papaya in the nose.
T: Pine comes out up front in the taste, followed by orange, papaya, pineapple, grapefruit peel and maybe a little mango. Some malt as well, but the hop character is much stronger.
M: Medium bodied and smoothish.
O: One of the best IPAs I've ever had. This is an amazing brewery from what I can tell. I'll have to visit it sometime.

Pouring a bit of the can into a snifter to get the look and smell, taste and feel are out of the can
Pours a cloudy orange and amber gold with a finger of foam. Transparency around 60%, moderate carbonation stemming from the center, alright lacing and retention. This would probably be more clear if it was fresher
Smells of strong citrus and earthy hops- a lot of floral pine with a touch of grapefruit, back up by a fairly strong and very sweet caramel malt. Again freshness would probably improve this aspect of the beer also, still pretty good
Taste is with the nose, a nice light hoppy flavor of pine and citrus balanced well against a sweet caramel malt and a touch of alcohol. Definitely not the most exciting, but pretty solid none the less.
Feel is a medium/light body with a wet finish. Not very bitter at all (44 ibu) and would probably make a good gateway ipa. Alcohol is concealed and finish is smooth. This stuff is pretty drinkable
Overall while 'epic' is a bit of an over statement of this beer, this stuff is pretty good especially on a warm summer day. I feel like it's a bit underscored, and the bros giving it a 68 further solidifies they're ineptness. Worth a try if available, ever since my shop stopped selling hop 'ottin this is my go to canned beer

3.41/5 rDev -6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A - poured to a slight head. medium amber that was crystal clear
S - noted to floral and citrus. pleasing aroma
T - the notes and floral I smelled turned into something with a funny aftertaste. It had to come from the hops cause it wasn't malty
M - good level of carbonation that kept beer fresh to finish
O - don't think I would buy again but only because of the intense IPA competition.

4.3/5 rDev +17.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A: Great amber color. More red than orange, but still a dark amber. Head is the most persistent I've seen on any brew yet.
S: Woody, very hoppy and sour aroma. Smells like mahogany, acorns. Earthy.
T: Not terribly complicated. Total brute force of high grade hops--very generous amount. I wouldn't say it's the most refined IPA i've had but it is thick, flavorful and complete. This stuck could knock you down after a while--very intense flavors that stay together well.
M: Full mouth-feel, no corner cutting here. Sour element when you move it around. Pleasant.
O: A great IPA that prides itself on pummeling you with great quality hops. It's rich and intense with uncomplicated flavors. Finishes clean, great scents. Really stands out when it comes to quality and intensity of it's hops--one of the better IPAs I've had.
EDIT: This was my full review during a blind taste test.

Kinda like Raul's grade point average in junior high - 3.0 down the line. It's ok, but Raul also had a girlfriend that was "ok" and Raul kicked her to the curb.
So, if you want a beer that you'd drank, then kick to the curb, have at it.
Serving type: on-tap
