look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pint can poured into a pint glass.

A - Poured out a golden color with a firm and lasting creamy head.

S - An absolute explosion of citrus hops with some other floral hints.

T - The taste is pure hops but balanced with enough malt to take away any rough edges. I can see how for some the lack of bitterness could be a downside.

M - Very smooth and drinkable. In spite of the head the carbonation level is very good.

O - A bit different than many IPAs but definitely worth a try.

I poured from a bottle into a half pint goblet, it produced a two finger thick white head with a golden beer underneath. The smell of the beer hit me almost immediately, a pure IPA aroma - bitter and citrussy. Flavourwise however it's the IPA hops that dominates the palate. It's like the citrus that was there in the beers aroma just didn't translate fully to the taste. Still a good tasting beer though and I like the bitter edge to it's flavour. I first enjoyed this beer on draft at the Dublin Beer Festival though for this review I picked up a few bottles at my local off-licence.

Drank it straight from the can while playing some disc golf.
The aroma in this beer is incredible, I know getting aroma out of a can isnt ideal, but tons of citrus, fresh cut grass, white grape, a little pine, super dank aroma, absolutely killer. Taste follows up with it, but a little subdued in some way, got some nice bready malt to it, bright big citrus tones, strong bitterness. Mouthfeel was medium, tingly from the bitter bite.
Honestly Im kinda shocked to see the rating where its at, I really enjoyed this, the aroma reminded me a lot of heady topper.
Im going to get another one of these hopefully in the future and do a glass review on it.

Updated 12-8-13
Can > 2x IPA Glass
A - Clear orange gold with a finger of white foamy head, minor lacing.
S - Huge dank aroma, some caramel and bread malt, hop resin, floral notes.
T - Tons of dankness, dank pine, dank grass, hop resin, bready malt, grapefruit, lemon zest.
M - Good feel, easily drinkable.
O - I still dont see why this gets bad ratings i love how dank this beer is, its solid.

3.45/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 16 oz can into pint glass.

A - A medium pour yields a 3 finger head and leaves behind some fantastic lacing as it settles. Settles down into a flat disc on the top of the body. Body is amber in color and cloudy.

S - Not too strong on the nose. I get mostly wet grain and light floral hops. Pretty grassy for an IPA

T - Sweet up front without much distinction. Moves quickly into bitterness also without much distinction. I don't get a particular roast on the malt and I can't pick up a particular hop or hop family in the bitterness. Not too floral or citrusy as is noted on the can. If anything, I would characterize it as piney.

M - Adequate carbonation for the style. May possibly be a bit overcarbonated, hiding some flavors.

O - I good drinkable IPA. It's not incredibly punishing on the bitterness, but there isn't enough flavor to back up what bitterness there is.

3.44/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear golden copper with a modest cream head that dissipates fairly quickly, lacing minimal foam.

Citrus, pine, and resin form the initial aroma, with subtle malt sweetness and fruitiness adding depth.

Flavor is decidedly bitter in balance. Muted notes of grapefruit and pine underlie a watery toasted, bready caramel malt backbone. The finish is fairly resiny.

Body and carbonation are somewhat light, with slight astringency at the finish. Alcohol warmth is subtle.

Pretty one note, unfortunately. Fairly weak in malt and hops.

Serving type: on-tap
