4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear light orange with white foam. Big hoppy citrus aroma. Kind of mouth watering. Taste is all hops. Light, fruity with minimal malt. Finish is mildly bitter. Moderate carbonation. Great beer. Easy to drink with big flavor.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler fill from GAT Beer in NE Phila. Pours clear golden-amber with a 2-finger off-white head. Aroma of piney hops mixed with tropical fruit, maybe some biscuit underneath. Body is medium, moderately oily, with a light astringent dryness to the finish. Flavor of resiny and pine hops mixed with tropical fruit, perhaps guava. A bit of a biscuit note underneath.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at tasting. Golden pour. Aroma of pine, citrus and caramel. Taste has caremel, citrus, pine, soft malt. Solid IPA, but not worthy of the praise.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance is a hazy, golden amber, a 1-2 finger off-white fluffy head which lasts. Leaves plenty of lacing around the glass. Aroma- loads of tropical fruit, lemons, orange, tons of grapefruit, hop resins, almost smells bitter, hints of bread, malt and brewer’s yeast. Huge aromas. Taste- lots of hop bitterness, pine, clinging hop resins, bitter orange peel, pineapple, fruit juice, peach, hint of mango. Mouthfeel is exceptional as IPAs go- smooth and a little chewy towards the finish, a definite malt presence. Finish can be measured in minutes, with no trace of alcohol. The fruitiness is slightly understated, perhaps due to the age, but this is still exceptional stuff.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear and golden orange. Aroma fills the room when opening the bottle, tangerines, grapefruit and some slight pine.
Taste confirms what i already suspected at this point, this is one of the best single ipas in the world, granted it does push the border towards a double in both strength and bitterness (aroma as well, holy shit!).
Impressed by this beer!
Bottle from saveur biere.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From the 650 ml. bottle dated 02/25/15 so it is a few months old. Cloudy, orange amber pour under a large, lingering white foamy head. The aroma is full of grapefruit, tropical and other fruity characteristics more than anything else. Some caramel malt underneath. The body is medium to better than medium. The taste is well balanced in its sweetness, fruity characters, and the lingering yet mild bitterness on the backside. This is quite delightful.

This is one of the best examples of the style. Cheap, always reliably good from a great brewery. What more could you want?

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From bottle in tulip glass. Pine and citrus aroma I’d expect from West Coast with nice clean look. Excellent crisp taste with nice balance and range between malts and hops with nice resin bitterness. Glad it’s made the trip down under!
