Very tasty ipa in can. Upon warming, hoppiness gets a little metallic. Bitter, resin finish lingers. Malt aroma not a favorite of mine (Munich?) but malt flavors good and dry. This can doesn't taste very fresh, I'll have to score a fresh one. Also curious to see what like in botlle or on tap

Outta the can, into a pint. Good lace, head. Foggy copper.
Citrusy hops, tropical fruit malts, delicious. Balanced for an IPA, but still hoppy. A signature Colorado IPA.
Appropriate carbonation. Crisp. Dry finish. Canned IPA this good is a beautiful thing

A-Pours out a body of orange/copper that held a light haze and sat beneath two inches of creamy,bone white foam that left thin strands of lacing after showing moderate head retention.

S-Soft,sweet citrus,apricot preserves,toffee malt
and some flowery hop qualities with a touch of pine on the finish.

T-More sweet citrus,dried apricots,soft pine,caramelized grains and some raw,leafy hop qualities.Good hop bitterness but a slightly generic malt base.

M-Light bodied with a lasting but moderate bitterness.

O-A good canned IPA.Definitely not a six pack worthy of a $12 price tag but good none the less.

Poured from can into pint glass. Golden orange color with nice chunky foam head. Good lacing. Strong hop aroma with fruityness to it.
Taste is of bitter hop bite with some malts. Slightly soapy and lightly fruity.
Mouthfeel is dry and bitter...
Its ok...not great and not missing this brew in NY. Sorry caldera, but not for me.

A: Poured a beautiful vibrant and clearish copper with a solid finger and a half of off white chunky head. Head fell to a skim but coated and laced beautifully.

S: Rich and dank with pineapple, grapefruit and sappy pine.

T: The juicy ripe fruit comes on early with more pineapple and apricots. The fruit fades into a chalky bite and then flows into a long bite of bitterness with leafy piney hops. Makes the tongue stand up and leaves an aspirin type chalkiness on the palate. You can tell the malts are fighting for their life but they keep it balanced and punch through with some grain notes.

M: A full version of medium with some sizzling carbonation.

O: Very good. I could kill a couple of these. Thanks to the President for surprising me with this one.

12 oz. can poured into a standard pint.

A - Vibrant bright orange with a medium head. It leaves a perfect sipwise lacing all the way down the glass.

S - Grapefruit is what I get mostly with a sweet malty backbone. Surprisingly, I don't get very many hops in the nose.

T - Grapefruit, grapefruit, grapefruit. There is some sweet malt with that and a bursting hops finish. Pine and citrus aftertaste. Very refreshing.

M - Nice and carbonated. The combo of the sweet malt and tart grapefruit give this a thicker feel than I think it actually has. Dry on the finish.

O - This is one of my favorite beers to drink by the pool in the summer. The combo of the slick yellow can and the citrusy, refreshing taste make it perfect for this. A good beer that I will always come back to.
