12oz bottle. Rating #24. Dark medium gold color with a nice lacing white head. Great aroma, sticky sweet citrus,, orange and ruby red grapefruit, makes my mouth water. High bitterness, very strong and it batters the tongue pretty good, not as good as the aroma, but still a very solid IPA. (2098)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Whole Foods. Pours fairly clear, off orange color. White head with slightly nitrogen taste is thick at first but slowly disappears. Good whack of hops up front that grow in bitterness. Oily feel that sticks to your mouth. Finishes bitter. More floral aroma on draft, but not a bad IPA.

The hops are bit too grassy. Slightly sour. Bit of citrus on the nose. Wish the bitterness was a bit smoother.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
can... dark clear gold with a bit of orange, big bright off white head, about two fingers of a cap, good retention and lace... the aroma is bit light, but pretty nice, mostly sweet floral and grassy hops, reminds me of really light heady topper in a strange way... the tase isn’t as successful as its very metallic and bitter and doesn’t mesh well with the aroma or your expectations, not terrible but nothing special

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
GABF 2011. Clear bright gold, with a big bitter aroma of juicy citrus, grapefruit, orange, and toffee sweetness. Huge body with a big long linger. Loads of complex hop tones, some citrus fruit, some floralness, and a touch of herbal tones. Sweetness is underplayed though, with some generic malty toffee. Good, just somewhat imbalanced.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. From Kenny. Can. Clear, well carbonated golden. Little head. A nice fresh hop aroma. That translates to the flavor. Bitterness is big and is almost tongue numbing. Caramel is light. Hops are floral. A nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can from a buddy in Texas- thanks, Brian! Pours a bright, mostly clear orange-tinted gold color with a small, uneven white head that leaves some streaks of lace. Aroma of orange citrus, biscuit malts, floral hops, cereal, and sugar. Flavor of floral hops, orange citrus, sweet malts, tea, and grapefruit peel. Light-bodied, with mild carbonation and a quick mouthfeel that transitions to lingering bitterness. Solid IPA.
