4.23/5 rDev +2.4%
The beer pours a reddish-amber color with a tan head. The aroma is full of pine and grapefruit, with some nice sweet biscuit malt notes also thrown in. The flavor follows suit. I get a lot of big, resinous pine notes and a medium amount of bitterness. There is also some orange citrus in there, but it hides behind the pine. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice IPA.

A- A very clean nice head. It's not super huge, but it sticks around for a bit and when it dissipates it goes to a single ring around the edge. It's a very lovely light reddish amber in color, very clear.
S- Hoppy, with notes of citrus and pine. Not very over powering, but a very wonderful smell.
T- Crisp bitter hop flavor, the malt comes through the more you sip it. I feel like it is super refreshing with its clean flavor.
M- Light and a bit of stickiness on the back of my throat with the first few sips.. Carbonation has a awesome light tingle to it. The more you drink it the thickness starts to pile up, in a good.
O- A wonderful IPA that I would be proud to drink in front of my friends no mater what their thoughts on can beers are. My opinion, poor it in a glass and get over where it came from.

A very solid IPA. Pours amber with a decent head, and some scant lacing. Lovely citrus aromas up front, followed by a hit of pine, and some clean, sweet malt on the back end. Very balanced in the taste, with the citrus and pine playing nicely together, and with some nice herbal flavors up front as well. The finish has a nice lingering bitterness that is well supported by the sweet malt. A nice beer.

Beer review from 7/8/2012: pours hazy reddish amber color with a creamy 1 finger tan head that faded and left a creamy layer on top and great foamy lacing and rings as it went down.
Smells of grapefruit, blood oranges, citrus hops, floral hops, caramel, sweet malt, light grains and juicy hops like mango or other citrus fruit; a really nice smelling IPA that has a bit of booze, but enough sweetness to cover it and make it inviting.
Tastes of grapefruit, blood oranges, citrus hops, floral hops, caramel, sweet malt, grains, brown sugar, light spices like cinnamon, pepper and coriander, piney hops/pine cones and more juicy hops like mango or pineapple, almost like wet hops were used. Very tasty out of the can and on par for a solid West Coast IPA. The aftertaste is bitter and either chalky or like tobacco residue, but still enjoyable.
Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with light fizzy carbonation, a medium body and sweet bitter aftertaste.
Very tasty overall, this was a juicy brew that was full of citrus flavor, easy to drink and hid the ABV very well. I'd definitely have this again if I can get it on the East Coast.

A - The slightly beige head grew slowly to about a finger. Body is super clear and maybe an orange/amber color. Slight lacing.
S - Just straight up hops. Piney, some grapefruit. Pepper.
T - Lots of bitter hops. Simple and green tasting. Very piney. It's harsh, but because of the simplicity, quite nice.
M - A light body and moderate carbonation.
O - Really just a simple well done beer. Not much to say, but at $1.50 or whatever, how can you complain?
