3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2013 Big grapefruit/citrus nose... pours copper with very little head, that actually disappeared while I’m writing this. Big carbonation bubbles. The grapefruit comes through bigtime on the first sip(and sticks around throughout)... not much balance or complexity with the hop combo, but somehow it’s still very drinkable. Good beer, and a good example of a San Diego style ipa.

355ml bottle from BWS. Hazy dark amber with a stable dense white head and lace rings. Hoppy aromas with pine, oily resin and orangey citrus to the fore above a biscuity malt bill. Palate is hoppy and bitter with a decent length that satisfies. A fine American style IPA.

Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours a hazy orange with a creamy white head and leaving some nice lacing. On the nose the resinous characters dominate with slight citrus, melon and honey. In the mouth it has a light body accompanied with low carbonation. Taste is bitter and dry with a crisp finish with lots of woody and citrus notes. The big eye wasn't as approachable as the sculpin but was still a bloody solid beer. Loved it

With a smell from mild pine, passionfruits, and citrus I knew from the get go that this one would rock. Taste is beautiful with a steady backbone of medium malts that lures out the floral and bitter taste that we all love.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great nose, very green and fresh and pungent. Green mangoes, fresh-cut grass, a bit of pine, a bit of grapefruit, a hint of pepper and earthy spices, and some grain make a really deep and satisfying first impression. The mouthfeel is medium, with a slightly oily body and moderate carbonation. The taste is primarily bitter, at first deploying the greener, fruitier flavors (mango peel, grass), which lead to a very dry, fairly lasting finish that evokes earthy minerals. A mild orangey tartness/sweetness also lingers. Not as compelling under the palate as to the nose, but great.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours a hazy apricot orange colour, thick creamy head with excellent retention. smells like pine needles and citrus peel and a hint of nuts. Tastes amazing, big on hop flavour and bitterness. Great example of a west coast IPA, bold and hopped to the max, but bought under control with some nutty caramel malts. Overall a very good beer.
