Pour from a 750 into a tulip. Orange/caramel color with a thick tan had that quickly thins to a soapy layer. Not much lacing. Generic citrus and hops nose, and a nice balanced flavor. Slightly toasted taste. Overall, a very nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange copper with a creamy off white that retsina well and leaves good lacing. Aroma has lots of citrus with some biscuit malt, tropical undertones and gets catty as it warms. Taste of citrus rind, some tropical fruit, dankness, a hint of malt sweetness and a big briny bitterness. Finishes with a long lingering briny bitterness. Mouthfeel is semi oily with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Big flavors and bitterness that you find in quality IPAs, but they seem to be competing somewhat instead of totally complimenting each other.

On draft. One of the best IPAs I’ve ever had. Beautiful sweet, tropical, piney hop aroma, big sweet, stone-fruit flavor with a dry toffee-caramel finish. Possibly the least-known great beer in America.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft... RBSG 2014… Murky peach-colored pour with a small, creamy, white head that stubbornly refuses to go away. The aroma offers citrus fruitiness, clove-like spiciness, armpit musk, stone fruit and pale grains. Full-bodied and creamy with tingly carbonation. The flavor is bitter-as-Hell, rindy and a touch metallic. The lupulin sticks to my tongue like napalm, resulting in a lengthy, rindy, metallically bitter finish. Well-crafted, even if this type and degree of acute bitterness is not at all my thing.

Hazy golden-orange color with medium head. Deep aroma, animal hop character, some caramel, light wood, almost smoke. Smooth mouthfeel; toffeish caramel flavor, strong yeast character, spicy; strong bitterness too; resiny hops, not fruity, not shining. Astringent in the final.
Not the IPA I expected, but a good beer nevertheless.

This is cloudy orange with a mixed bubbled head. Nose is hoppy as you would expect w/ a focus on floral and citrus. This is a bit sweet with a lot of orange and overall a very nice, fresh hop character. It is medium bodied w/ medium carbonation. This is a down the middle IPA that won’t surprise anyone but it’s really well done.
