3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Typrical west coast IPA. Deep yellow/orange color with an odd rocky white head...kinda looked like the top off a root beer float. Grapefruit aroma with a woody, burnt background character. The flavor was similar to the aroma, but a little more burnt. Bubbly and refreshing.

Orange and light tan head. Fuity citrus flavors at the start, then a sturdy chalky flavor all the way to the finish. Maybe a little mint, as well. Clean finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful golden beer to look at, with a small head that disappeared rather quickly. A hop attack of pine and grapefruit that jumped out. Hop dominated taste, with a long dry finish. Medium body and very refreshing. Oh boy am I lucky! All these great beers.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber hue. Medium-sized white, creamy head. Excellent thick lacing.
Notes of spruce, pine, and everything else evergreen in the nose. Undernotes of apricot and other fuzzy fruits. Also black pepper.
The flavor is very bitter and moderately citrusy with a hint of grapefruit rind.
Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Crisp, clean and bitter finish.

This is a hop heads delight. Light in appearance for an IPA. Great aroma and long lasting hop flavor.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
light straw color with a fluffy white head. aroma is floral and grapefruit - pungent hop aroma. flavor is biased towards grapefruit citris hoppiness - and plent of it. mouthfeel is resinous and chewy - very good. this is an excellent IPA with the fine flavor characterists of the 3 Floyd's Dreadnaught IPA without the brutal ABV.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flaxen color - full white creamy head. Very sweet hoppy aroma. Has a real flowery taste. All the IPA's up till this point including this one have helped me realize that I love IPA's. Hoppy full-flavored and perfectly bitter.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazed dark golden color with a big bubbled rocky off white head. Ruby red grapefruit aroma everywhere. Some malt sweetness at the very tip which is quickly swept away with the hops oils. Grapefruit and pine tree flavors dominate with litle malt to back them up. Actually feels thinner as the brew warms. An americanized IPA - More Hops + Less Malt = No Balance.

My first experience with an IPA. Nice golden color, and an aroma that overflowed with citrus smells. White foamy head. The taste was excellent. The citrus that was there in the aroma came through in the taste. The hops were also very present. My introduction to IPAs was a good one, and cannot wait to try more.
