3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taster at The Mondial de la biere 08 in Montreal. The color is honey with a beige head and lace. The aroma is of hops, and the taste also of hops and lots of them.Also in the taste is sweet fruits that makes it an excellent I.P.A.. The finish is that nice bitter taste of the hops again. This was a very good beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. Bottle: Clear copper with a frothy off-white head. Strong juniper aroma abounds with a strong bitter flavor akin to its aroma with a little perfuminess in the aftertaste. Sticky lacing all over the glass. Overall, it is a solid IPA with a strong bitter flavor that virtually covers every square inch of your mouth. Very enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours copper orange with sticky beige head. The aroma is pine, mango, and a light honeyish sweetness. The flavor is toasty malt and a disembodied fruitiness, with canteloupe, orange, and mango. At first taste it strikes me as a little more gentle and malty than I thought it would be, but it finishes with a strong piney bitterness that lingers into an aftertaste of wood and grass. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Nice orange pour, some white head that dissipated quickly. Nice citrus, orange peel, and pine hop aroma, The flavor is just like the aroma, lots of orange peel / grapefruit-like bitter flavor. Some resin and pine in the back. Nice ipa... I think this was a good year for hops b/c all the CA IPAs have it going on.
