This was a pleasant surprise! Poured from a can into a pint glass. Slightly cloudy orange-yellow color with a good head and nice lacing. The smell was of grapefruit and flowery. The taste was fresh, hoppy and strongly citrusy. Nice grapefruit and orange flavor. A first class IPA.

Pours a cloudy honey amber color with a 1/2 finger width foamy head. Retention is decent. Lacing is good. Citrus and piney aroma. Slightly earthy. More malty taste. Slight citrus. Nice piney hop. Mild dank taste at the end. Medium bodied with moderate to heavy carbonation. Not a bad IPA.

Nice golden color and good carbonation. Not much head and hoppy aroma. Not overly hoppy tasting as it dissipates quickly and hangs on the tongue. Easy drinking beer and a little better than some others I have tried recently. Think I'll have another. Cheers.

A hazy honey golden color with a frothy 1 finger head with lace that sticks around for awhile.

Aromas of fresh pine, grass, slight herbal aromas, and faint garlic and onion due to a little past its date on this one.

The flavors come out very fresh, with pine and herbal notes fighting for center stage. The herbal notes ultimately win out. A finish of pine and onion.

Feel is crisp and clean, with slight resinous quality.

Overall, this is a pretty solid IPA that I'd recommend to anyone. Coop definitely gets their IPA's right.

Clear dark gold with three fat fingers of dense off-white head that slowly recede to leave soapy lacing.

Pine, honey and some light peppery spice in he nose. A hint of pineapple, too.

Dull pine up front in the taste, heavy bready malt mid-palate, and a bitter, peppery aftertaste. A touch of cardboard at three-and-a-half weeks knocks it back a bit.

Heavy bodied with a prickly mouthfeel. A little on the flat side.

Overall, a nice West Coast example. 03/01/17 canning date.
