I'm not a huge IPA fan but this was available on the Friday $4 craft beer list. The description of having a bold citrus taste with smooth finish of apricots and peaches sold me on it. I did get the bold (bitter) citrus flavor but did not taste the fruity finish. All in all it wasn't bad for a non IPA lover. Would possibly have it again

Tried at Hot Rod's in Wharton, NJ 10/10/14

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

355ml Can from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3):
Light & clear golden amber, 3.5cm foamy white head that turns to a fine lacing with some left on the sides over the course of 3 or 4 mins.

Strong resinous pine hops, citrus & grapefruit with fruity aroma. Stonger than expected for the style & with the odd floral note as well.

Almost as strong as the nose & quite bitter with lots of pine. Citrus/lemon notes with orange & grapefruit too before some malts start to come through towards the end.

Light medium bodied with a good carbonation & a citrus tang. Bitter with a dry finish.

Another solid Flying Dog effort, one of the better session IPA's I've tried but stil room for improvement.

My local, frequent in-person trader, tone77, recently dropped this off for me in his latest batch of beer in support of The CANQuest ™. I am always anxious to see what he has for me when he stops by!

From the CAN: “They say that life isn’t easy. They also say that you should always put on pants before you go out in public, the best meals aren’t made in the microwave, couches aren’t made to have cup holders, and condiments come in vessels other than squeezy tubes. Clearly, they aren’t always right.”; “Drink Local Beer”; “’Good People Drink Good Beer.’ – Hunter S. Thompson”; “Session India Pale Ale”.

The Crack! was easy except for the spray of beer across my fingertips. There was some foam coming through the opening, but I am not one to take the easy way out, so I began an inverted Glug. It was easy to watch the pseudo-cascade quickly begin to form three fingers of foamy, eggshell-white head that fell pretty easily. It was easy to see that the color was Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 -5 ) with NE-quality clarity. It was also easy enough to give Midas, Mammon and Croesus a sip when they showed up. Nose had some nice, citrusy aromatics which were easy to perceive. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was definitely hoppy, easily grapefruit rind and with less of the overt bitterness that I got in the previous Ray Ray’s PA. Finish was dry, slightly bitter, but very easy to drink. Nice lacing was beginning to line the glass. I sat back to CANtemplate this one and easily came to the CANclusion that it would not be sustainable for me. I understand the whole notion of sessionable beers, but AIPAs deserve better, IMHO. Just sayin’.
