4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to 48FanInCali for the bottle. Pours amber with lots of carbonation showing and foamy off-white head. Smells of pine, pineapple, confectioners sugar, and citrus. Tastes are same with circus peanuts, vanilla. Clean finish with lingering faint sweet hoppiness.

I bought a 1/6 of this, Thick oily head, nice aroma, great malty body.
although this beer is only 6% it packs more punch than that...for some reason I get really really messed up on this beer, huh? maybe i just lose track. I very well balanced IPA. would recomend to anyone!

I prefer this over the sculpin. The hop aroma and flavor of this beer were really nice. I would love to have a six pack of this, and at 6%, I could have quite a few in a night.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. There is light pine and resin in the nose. The taste has a nice malt background with a bit of chocolate and pine. Medium mouthfeel with average carbonation and a medium, slightly bitter finish. A very solid IPA.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
My 2nd try from ballast point, and I have to say I really have affection for this brewery. This thing has a nice nose, and a great hoppy palate that finishes very fast, making it extremely drinkable. You could probably chug this if you wanted to, while tasting great pine and citrus hops. It goes down soooooo quick. Great beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours orange with an off white head. Sweet and hoppy aroma with some cool pineapple-like fruity notes. The flavor has pineapple fruity notes, hops, honeydew, sweet malts, and a light bitter finish. Pretty good.

Bottle from Beer Ritz. Amber pour with a white head. Citrus, apricot and raspberry aromas. Mango, pear and citrus flavours. Sharp hop tingle. Fruity, hoppy finish. Refreshing.

12oz at World of Beer in Hyde Park/Tampa. Pours orange with a medium beige head. Aroma is florals and oranges. Flavor is grassy and citrusy, orange zest to be exact. L/M mouthfeel. Pretty underwhelming.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amazing IPA. The pour is bright orange, somewhat translucent. Finger of thick creamy head which dissapates to nearly nothing. Aroma is sweet grassy hops with citrus, lemon peel, orange, slight grapefruit and huge bitter hop. The taste is sweet bready malts with a sweet sugary hop. Citrus and hop bomb finish with huge tasty hop. Alcohol is unnoticed.
