A thanks to the founding father of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has an orange color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of tropical fruits, malts. Taste is dank, pineapple, resin, a god malt backbone. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid but unspectacular beer.

A pretty mediocre IPA. Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. Quickly foamed up as the can was opened, spilling some contents. Produced a big white head with good retention and thick bands of lacing on the glass. Aroma very lacking, you know there is bitterness there but hardly and flavors leap out at you. Taste is about the same. There is some bitterness and bready malt but, other that the bitterness, there is not much there. I detected a bit of skunkiness in the taste. Mouthfeel is a bit better. Pillowy soft with just one hit of bitterness. Not all that crisp and the skunky taste affects the feel as well. There are much better IPAss out there.

L: Pours a clear straw yellow color with a fluffy medium white head, and several waves of lacing around the glass.

S: A splash of ripe citrus fruit hits the nose right up front, followed by some floral hops and notes of doughy bread underneath to balance out the hops.

T: Sweet tropical and citrus fruit, a bit of grapefruit rind bitterness, mixed with a dash of floral and piney hops. Balanced out by a slightly doughy malt in the background.

F: Medium body and carbonation

O: A solid IPA not earth shattering but still tasty.

When I ran across this at Total Wine, I had no idea such a thing even existed. Had to check it out, this was one of those breweries back in the 90s that really delved into craft beer further.

Pours yellow, 1/2" white head. Aroma was a little more catty than their normal ipa, started thinking about Simcoe hops.

Way less maris otter than their ipa. Less malty. This went west coast. Hops were plenty bitter, didn't offer a bunch in the way of hop flavor. Not getting anywhere near the same degree of hop flavors (tropical, citrus) that other reviews are indicating. My can was about 3 months old.

Ultimately it was an ipa that is a little more related to current events in the beer world. Easily drank, pretty simple stuff.

Poured from a can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Cloudy golden brown pour. 2 fingers of foamy white head leave great lacing.

S: Tropical fruits... caramel malts... grapefruit and citrus. Resiny pine.

T/F: Sweet bready malts to start with. Caramel and candy. Lots of tropical fruit on the hop profile. Moderate bitterness... balanced. Some mango and grapefruit. Medium in body. Finish is tropical and bittersweet.

O: A respectable tropical fruit-forward IPA from Anderson Valley. Juicy and tasty... very drinkable.

Drank this in a can on a roof in Baltimore. I'm not sure if the smell is what is influencing everyone else, but I tasted quite a bit of syrupy medicine candy ("cherry" said my friend) with the hoppy ale. It was alright, for a hoppy saison, but not what would be expected for a straight IPA by the trustworthy Anderson Valley.

Roommate Mike's Quick Sip: "I can't do this right now... yeah, that's the review."
