Big citrus pine immediate hoppy taste that lingers on the sides of your tongue for minutes. Actually tastes smoother when it slightly warms.

Can- amber in color with nice lacing. A bit more roasted of an IPA than the sculpin. Nose of grapefruit. A very good IPA with a hoppy/roasted taste to it.

On tap at the Brass Tap RR. Pours a clear deep amber with a small white head. Large floral hop nose with citrus and pine. Nice and bitter from start to long dry finish. Medium mouth with average carbonation.

Had a six pack from Holmes recommended by gentleman there. This was a great beer. Fantastic hop aroma right out of bottle with a really nicely balanced bitter finish. I looked it just like ruination

Somewhat clear orange, with half a finger of white head. I definitely get Columbus and Centennial on the nose, there’s big astringent orange, grapefruit, herbal dankness. Taste matches the aroma. Great west coast IPA, dry finish, just enough malt, right amount of bitterness, easy to enjoy. My style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big hops in the big eye. The aroma is lacking something. This has a peppery-like spice quality to it. Dry and bitter, not sweet. It has a long lingering aftertaste of oily, hoppy goodness. Its a good IPA, but not very balanced, just bitter. I’ll stick with Sculpin.

355 ml bottle from AEON Liquors @ Jiyugaoka, Tokyo. Pours clear, amber-golden. Nice foamy head that stays well. Aroma has flowers, bubblegum, tropical fruits, some resins. Wonderful! Taste is surprisingly smooth with delicate hop flavours. Very refreshening! At first there is a lot of fruitiness, lemon seed bitterness at the end. Some resiny pine-needles in the middle. Truly nice IPA, very enjoyable.

A perfect American IPA. Full bodies, complete hops, perfect bitterness and complexity. Am happy to pay the $22 a six pack at DM’s for this magical beer. Would love to try the Sculpin, apparently it’s even better than this!

A flawless IPA in every way. Nice hoppy aroma and flavor balanced with the malty sweetness. Pours an amber color with an average sized frothy white head. Bitter, a little fizzy and a bit oily as well. I could drink this every day.

Faint aroma with some hops and a bit off fruit. Body is deep orange mostly. Taste is really soft. There are some IPA hints but it’s really weak. It’s a really soft beer with hints of IPA bitterness.
