Notes / Commercial Description:

Nice hop and malt balance. Don’t really get the flavors of grapefruit and pine they claim on the can, though.

Pours a clear gold. Straight forward IPA, slight citrus notes, touch of wheat, good hops, but bitterness doesn't linger.

A: Pours a hazy golden honey in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and a moderate amount of golden yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy light beige head that reduces to a couple of small patches of medium thick film (of medium sized bubbles) surrounded by a very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of herbal, grassy, and floral hops over the top of light aromas of caramel + biscuit malts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of caramel + biscuit malts with just a hint of sweetness. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of herbal, grassy, and floral hops which impart a light to moderate amount of lingering bitterness. Hints of earthiness here in the finish.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Hints of dryness in the finish.

O: An interesting hybrid of the English & American IPAs with some nice hop flavors and aromas. A little more subtle than a lot of the American counterparts but still enjoyable and easy to drink.

Pours a pretty clear golden color with off-white head. Floral notes, citrus fruits, and grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied IPA. Finishes with fruit and grass.

Roommate and I both bought a six pack of this and couldn't finish it. Not a great IPA by any standard

Pours a deep honey red with a minimal head. Decent lacing, not much nose. Taste is a piney/herbal West Coast type of IPA with a dank earthy aftertaste and strong lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is solid, not thin. Good carbonation.

Pours into a standard pint glass a clear copper with minimal head,lot's of tiny bubbles...Aromas are very light very faint earthy hops detected and that's about it.Flavors are off in a big way,I get some earthiness and caramel malts,the feel is pretty flat.This might be an off can or this is just a bad version of an IPA.
