My first try of this beer I drank straight from the can. I like the style and cheeky phrases, which led to the purchase.

The flavor is more cherry than I would like and less hoppy than I expect from an IPA. A titch too coppery, but that's not surprising given how red the can is.

The mouthfeel is mediciny which is the main contributor to its low overall score.

16 oz tallboy can into a pint glass. Canned on: 8-08-12 @ 09:46 "SPF-15000". Not sure how this got past EPA!

A - Dark and clear amber body.One finger soapy white head. Nice lacing and retention.

S - Orange juice, resinous pine, and danky onions. The onions do have a significant presence here which seems to overpower any traces of malt sweetness.

T - This is obviously not the IPA for me. Starts off with a very bitter and savory onion and dank flavor. Almost no sweetness. So much alcohol that its almost liquor like. Mouth feel is medium bodied with high carbonation, but the drinkability is low for me due to the flavor profile and alcohol.

O - I can't blame this on freshness as its not even three weeks old. Its a very savory and danky beer. I can't even tote this one to taste buds either because the alcohol presence makes for one unbalanced beer.

The look is cloudy and the beer has good lacing. The smell is very musky/musty and is what i imagine the smell of a Tijuana hooker with fat thighs smells like when she spreads her legs. The taste could be great but it has an overwhelming metallic taste from the can, otherwise the quality would be compared to two hearted ale. If you love ipas this beer is worth a try just be sure to buy a single.

tallboy into large short's pint. Bottom of can reads 'STANDARD OF DEVIATION'.

A- Nice head, thick and creamy, eggshell white. Beer is a bit hazy, burnt orange. Looks pretty good to me.

S- This smells like dank, wet pine and some papaya as well.

T- Hop wallop on the tongue, very lemony and a bit skunk-y (not lightstruck'd). Bitterness is impressive and lingers. Malt sweetness is not insignificant but it still falls to the rear.

M- Alcohol is noticeable, a bit hot. Bitterness is sharp- perhaps a bit too abrasive. Bordering on solvent-y.

O- Meh, looks ok, smells ok, tastes ok, but it's not for me. It's not a bad beer by any means but it does little to excite me. Did not finish.
