4.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
In comparison to other citrus/pine mega-IPA’s (e.g., Hopslam, Hoptimum) this one clocks in real nice with huge rich hoppiness, syrupy richness, but also dryness. It has no cloying sweet to muck it up. In fact, it is almost tart, and the different aspects wind up with all sorts of definition: fresh & zesty; spring woodland hoppy; bitingly alive. This is a stunning beer, but it is big, big, big, and bracing too.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2015 Aroma: fruity, floral hops, some pine, light resin. Appearance: slightly hazy gold, creamy, small, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: sweets coming up quickly, ripe fruits, pine, light resin, soft carbonation, full body, dry finish. Overall: very nice IIPA, excellent balance between sweets and bitters in the palate, maybe a bit light in aroma. Bottle from the brewery, Juneau.

Great looking ipa. Pours a deep orangeish with a THICK off white head. Weaker on the nose with hints of pine, caramel, pineapple, toffee. Very well balanced, starts off bitter on the tongue and finishes smooth.

Pours a thin head on a clear dark straw body.
The aroma is a wonderful sharp citrus smell.
The taste has a great and bold lemon drop bitterness throughout. Nicely balanced though.
The texture is crisp.
