3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Darker amber color typical of IPA’s - though slightly cloudy. Fairly hoppy aroma. Quite hoppy - hops are well balanced with malt.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper color. Aroma: Grass, citrus, pomegranate, banana and toast. Taste: Caramel, grapefruit, pomegranate and citrus. Dry finish. Very bitter, but overall this beer doesn’t match my expectations of an IPA. Easily drinkable, but for some reason it doesn’t impress.

Dark opaque amber with thin lacy head. Back of palate bitterness that stays through finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark amber with chill haze and a one finger creamy white foamy head.
Nose is very citrusy with lemon and orange, slight estery banana which is interesting and some roasted malt sweetness.
Flavour is clean, with a decent amount of bitterness throughout and a sweet, malty, slightly banana estery finish. A slight amount of toast and citrus on the finish adds complexity.
I’m kind of uncertain about all those esters in there. I fell like perhaps they might be a result of poor storage.
Regardless, this is a decent beer, but nothing outstanding. However I’ll definitely be getting a bottle from a more reliable retailer in the future.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
August 2010. Bottle. Amber color with a white head. One of the big West Coast style IPA’s out there and does not disappoint in any way. Great stuff!

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice golden orange color with a decent head. Nice and clear when I put it up to the light ...no haze. Hoppy floral notes to my nose with hints of evergreen and fresh flowers. Taste is wonder with lots of hops and a slight hint of malt. Crisp and clean with a nice hops after taste that last for a few minutes.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy copper-amber with a quickly lost whitish head. Aroma of oranges and caramel. The taste is excellent. It’s got a nice bitter hop presence and a solid malt backbone. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Very pleasant drinking. Nice.

I had this at Global Brew. It is nice and hoppy, flavor is like the average IPA. I could drink this again.
