12 oz. can purchased at Franklin's Brewery & General Store in Hyattsville, MD., unknown bottling date but enjoy by 11/12/13, poured into my Weyerbacher tulip glass, drank 10/25/13 over an hour.

A: 2/3 - golden-orange coloration, moderate clarity (can see but not read through), initial frothy white head resolves into 1/2-1 finger head, moderate alcohol legs which re-agitates the carbonation on swirling

S: 9/12 - lots of citrus fruit - grapefruit, pineapple, apricot and tangerines - hop character likely from "C" hops, very little dank/piney hop character; although the hops predominate, there is a caramel/biscuit malt character detectable for balancing

T: 14/20 - on the anterior tongue, Florida citrus fruit bitterness and flavors are most apparent; it the middle of the mouth, there's a mild bitterness with some caramel sweetness that starts to emerge; mild-to-moderate sweetness on the back end but overall dry, little aftertaste

M: 4/5 - medium body with some hop oils sitting on the tongue, some alcohol fullness but easy tio drink and doesn't taste like 7.3% ABV; high carbonation that does not detract from the flavor profile

O: 7/10 - solid single IPA from an excellent brewery

TOTAL = 36/50

Poured from a bottle into my Duvel snifter.

A - Pours a nice light amber color with an even, clean head. Leaves a great lacing along the rims of the glass.

S - Strong but not overpowering pine hop smell with some caramel, grapefruit and citrus notes.

T - Pretty much the same smell but with a nice spicy taste as well. Grapefruit is a little more present.

M - Perfect. Just smooth, light and clean. Not heavy but bitter in a good ipa way.

O - One of the best IPA's I've had. Not too flashy, just good quality hoppy taste with grapefruit and caramel malts.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Golden amber and clear. 2 finger head which lingered until my first big sip.

Smell - Sweet hops. Fruity. Slight floral notes.

Taste - Fruity Hoppy taste. More of the floral hops do peak through as it warms up. Very mild bitterness on the backend.

Mouthfeel - light medium body. Slight dry finish on the back end.

Overall - A great IPA. A good hoppy bears for the hopheads. I prefer this on draft than in bottles.

Serving type: 16 oz pint

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Dark copper color, almost reddish. Poured about a 1 finger head that had decent-good retention. A thin lacy cap remains throughout. Good lacing.

S - Citrus hops mainly. A little bit of piney hops, and some underlying grains. \

T - I noticed the piney hops flavor first, unlike the smell. but the citrus and grapefruit flavors are there very strong too. Good underlying malt backbone.

M - Somewhat thick, but good.

O - Overall a very good ipa. Nice strong hops bitterness but still very balanced.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Light copper in hue.

S: Citrus, floral, and piney.

T: Grapefruit, resinous, and pine.

M: Chewy (in a good way), resinous, and bit tingly.

O: Solid IPA. My go-to a lot of the time. Usually it's slightly cheaper in price than others with just as much bite and dignity. Cheers!
