3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle-thanks to the guys from Dark Tranquillity for this very fine IPA! they gave me a bunch of beers they had at the end of their US tour before they went to Mexico-this one was included! Pours bright orange with a small soapy white head ans some whispy lacing. nose is huge floral notes- the C hops really shine here-a very good blend of hops. Floral, somewhat catty, grapefruit, maybe even some white wine notes in there. very pungent almost astringent. Flavors follow suit-very catty, lots of grapefruit, citrus rind and a hint of cheese. This is a very nice ipa that i would like to pick up more of sometime. Solid and somewhat under-rated.

Bottle from Fred Meyer. Light brown/golden in color. Nice pungent hop nose, with a bit of sweetness. Good citrus character with a decent amount of maltiness. A little watery in the back end, but pretty good all in all.

This beer smells really, really good when you crack open a bottle. On top of that, itís a quick, easy drink that goes down remarkably smooth. It has light, citrus-y tinges which help make it an enjoyable drink to savor. The only knock against it, Iíd say, is that itís always a bit hard to finish; as in, once it settles at the bottom, the remainder is a bit sharp. Overall, though, itís a really fantastic drink, something Iíd easily recommend. Hereís hoping the Anheuser-Busch buyout doesnít affect the quality of the brew!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very nice Ipa, well balanced and not too bitter. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a thin white head. Smells of hops, citrus and a bit of fruit. Taste is quite sweety upfront, lots of Clementine and tropical fruit, balanced Werth with a bit of hops in the finish. Finish is not bitter. Paired with leek and mushroom croquettes, brings out the hops in the background. Had in the bottle.
