12oz can from Acme- Akron. Clear golden pour, small foamy head. Malty aroma, earthy hops. Taste leads with light resiny hops, caramel malts behind. Oily, resiny feel, sticky, mouth coating. Mild sweetness and a lingering dull bitterness.

Slightly less than a fingers worth of off white colored froth with limited retention... The color is the palest of coppers... A nice mix of citrusy and pungent hops... Has some dry hopped character to the nose... The palate has a sharp pungent hop bite that lingers in a pleasant way.... Limited if any malt presence perhaps just some faint cracker notes... Light bodied with moderate carbonation and a dry finish... Very nice and highly drinkable.... I would gladly enjoy a couple of these anytime I had a chance....

Poured out of a 12 oz. can into one of my pint glasses, this beer pours a clear, medium to dark golden color. Has a white head that's about an inch thick when first poured that settles eventually to very thick layer of surface foam, a thick ring lining the inside of the glass, and excellent lacing. Aromas of some bready malts w/ a bit of caramel, along w/ piney, floral, and citrus hop notes. Flavors of the aforementioned bready, slightly zest, malts w/ a nice bit of caramel sweetness gives way to the also aforementioned piney, floral, and citrus hop that provide the perfect amount of bitterness, While there is a good amount of malts, the hops certainly dominate the flavor profile here. Which is as it should be. Has a crisp, slightly oily, smooth, medium to full bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a clean finish and a nice after taste. Easy to drink in the good way a well crafted IPA ought to be.

Brewers notes: True to form and always consistent, IPA sets the standard for the India Pale Ale category with an impeccable blend of hops from the Pacific Northwest. IPA pours with a lofty white head and light copper hue with aromas of freshly-peeled orange, grapefruit and soft tropical notes.

Can received in bif17 from @ovaltine

Poured into a pretentious beer glass , clear golden liquid, craggy two finger white foam cap, good retention, good lacings

Aroma is piney , citrus orange. Mrs windrrllama claims to smell onions . I have never found that in a beer and applaud her recognition of that scentv

Taste is pine, citrus orange

Smooth not bitter, clean , crisp , hop kiss on the finish

Good beer

Wonderful golden colour with a head retention of a few seconds. The aroma is dank, piney and insanely inviting. Very dry overall, but not in an imbalanced way, with the lingering bitterness asking you to have another sip. Medium body. A delicious IPA that would be an excellent accompaniment to food. Thank you @jzeilinger

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Canned August 2nd 2022. Pushing it here for freshness but at least it was in the cold case.

Beautiful looking IPA. Deep amber bodied, with crystal copper colors and light appearances of carbonation. Off white head, definitely near the khaki yellow colored realm with simple classic three to four finger height. Lots of staying power, barely budging at all with massive retention. Just a great looking bold ipa.

Unfortunately hints of classic faded hops on the nose, with a soft caramel dominating and leafy touches of herbs, if a bit small on the nose. Still there's a nice floral pungency here, if understated.

Palate seems fairly old school. Touches of leafy sage like herbal hops, with a big emphasis on tea green flavors. Finish with soft caramel and more leafy like tea flavors and mild senses of bitterness. Mild touches of pine and earth in the finish.

Decent, but I think I might have missed the boat on this one. This definitely needs a revisit from me in the fresh future cause there is some quality in here.

A really good IPA, super hoppy, nice bitterness, a bit of a mango flavor to it.
