12 ounce can, w/o freshness info

Clouded darker shade of golden amber. Sturdy and lasting lite khaki head, leaves real nice froth, low sheeting and scattered fine lace. Nice looking beer.

Big nose w/ floral, citric and per-fumy notes.

Well hopped and fresh tasting IPA, with more citrus n pine hop bombs dropping all over.

Quality IPA in a can. Impressed with this one.

A: Slightly hazy, light burnt orange color, head retention is a little weak.

S: Pine up front with tangerine in the background that lingers strongly. Floral notes too. All fairly subdued but clearly evident.

T: A dash of pine right away then an orange-tangerine flavor that reminds me of the Push-Ups frozen treats I ate as a kid. Citrus character blends perfectly with the malt. Finishes with a strong floral character that is almost honey like, again blending well with the malt. Bitterness is about right and lingers well.

F: Clean and refreshing with the right amount of bitterness in the finish.

O: I'm surprised that this beer isn't rated a little higher. No Heady killer, but clean, tasty, solid all around, the brewer can be proud. I'm not grilling for awhile but will try it out on the deck next spring.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Pale and golden. A bit on the pale side for an IPA actually, with a nice white head.

Smell: lightly hoppy, not super inviting though.

Taste: not great. Very bitter with a light malt background that doesn't complement the hops very well. All the components of an IPA are there, just not in a good combination.

Feel: light bodied and easy. Very sessionable feeling.

Overall, it seemed like an IPA created by someone who doesn't really understand what people like about IPAs. Overly bitter and unbalanced.

I tried this at Cook Clarke's in Newport, Rhode Island. It poured a hazy orangish with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent had hop hints that included some citrus flare. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with some fruit notes present. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was basically a slightly hazy burnt orange color with no head nor lacing. The smell had a sweet citrus to bitter citrus over top of sweet caramel malts. The taste was mainly sweet through the hops and malts. There’s a decent background of bitterness there, it’s just not substantially over the top. There’s a lingering sweet hops to malts aftertaste. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs like an AIPA, substantially smooth enough to fulfill a nice bitterness. Overall, nothing bad, it’s just nothing over the top. Could make a decent grilling beer.
