3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Vigorous pour yields nice white head on this light gold beer. Lots of citrus notes in the nose. The palate is sweet with bitterness up front followed by more of that citrus at the back. Good tasting IPA.

Crisp, clean pour, finger white head, Notes of peaches, Caramel apples, pears, even gummy bears, climbing bitterness that finishes clean and crisp yet lingers a little, very fresh bottle. Slight bitter tank-like resinous mouth feel ,so whatever happened to irie pirate ale??

This is the way all IPAs should taste. Heavy hops, pine and fruit, bitter and refreshing. High quality and the strength I look for in taste,palate, and aroma.
Bomber bottle in socal.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Z butelki aromat mocno dojrzałych lub wręcz przejrzałych grejpfrutów, pomarańczy, słodkich owoców tropikalnych (żółtych), po przelaniu do szklanki wyczuwalne lychee, marakuja, mango, po ogrzaniu minimalnie karmel. Barwa jasnobursztynowa, klarowne. Duże wysycenie. Piana wysoka, średnio i drobno pęcherzykowa, długa i pięknie zdobiąca szkło. W smaku uderzenie lychee i cukierków prawoślazowych. Goryczka średnia, przyjemna.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; shared with Reakt at the Moncada brewery; Saturday 20th December 2014. A really nice head and benchmark IPA image on the colour. The beer is well-carbonated and aroma is of hey and tropical fruits and good yeasty doughness.
The taste is oxidised but still the banging fruity notes you want from a West Coast IPA. Unfortunately it was a bit cheesy and very bready on the texture. A nice dry and long finish which was fruity. Very drinkable and I enjoyed this one.

Just two months old from its bottling date, loads of west coast hops, and that sherbet hint that the best IPA s give. More of a malt backbone than some IPAs, but still a lovely dry finish.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Mission Dolores, Brooklyn. Pours a clear honey golden color with a big frothy beige head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange, very floral, resin. Very fresh smelling beer. Amazing. Flavor is hop forward, lots of grapefruit, and orange. Decent biscuit malt backbone that’s noticeable. Good balance. Nice carbonation. One of the best IPAs I’ve had.

22oz bottle into tulip.
Excellent aroma - citrus and pine. taste is bitter, especially in the finish. Overall, this beer is really nice. A little more piney and bitter than I would prefer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured a big three finger, creek foam-like head. Very clear, light amber-copper color and big thick lacing. Aroma is very citrusy, some pine, hop resin and grapefruit. Right down the road medium body and smooth for an ipa with a little quick bite at the end. Piney, lime, citrus, grapefruit and resiny hops fill the palate. Pale malts, mellow sweet malts and caramel accented malts round it out. Very solid!

Large off-white head, lasting. Lot of lacing. Hazy orange. Piney & citrusy. Classic american hops profile. Light malt base. Very balanced. Nice bitter aftertaste. Not feeling the 7.25 ABV.
