Very nice foral and citrus and mango aroma that pours out clear amber. Large white head with loads of lacing that really lasts. Very smooth with distinct hop and malt flavor that hints of honey. Medium mouthfeel and mild hop bite aftertaste. I really enjoyed this IPA. I personally think it should be rated higher than the overall average. If you enjoy hops and a clean easy drinking smooth brew this one just might be the ticket.

An excellent visual with the pour, a dark apricot colored liquid with a finger of off-white soft foam. The aroma is very pine driven with a balance of grapefruit and other light citrus to freshen the bitterness. The lightweight body is well carbonated, but not overly done and allows the brew to come alive on my tongue, imparting the flavor with ease. Great beer! I’ll make this a go-to brew for sure! Tasty and refreshing!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber pour. Off-white head with big bubbles and lots of streaky legs. Smells of woody hop, spiced malt, mineral/produce aisle. Taste is lemon, woody resinous hop, rye/spice malt. Body is lemony, medium, slick, quite fine. More malt than I expected. Tasty beer.

May 25, 2015; 12 oz. *can*. Lovely, orange-colored pour. Clean, white, bubbly head dissipating to 1/8" with moderate lacing. Truly-remarkable floral, piney aroma. Sturdy malt backbone. Not too sweet. A woodsy, satisfying IPA deserving of its high marks here; finest "new" IPA I’ve had in some time.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Tropical fruit aroma with notes of grapefruit citrus hop and a little bit of sweet caramel. Pours copper colored with a large soapy off-white head with excellent retention and not much lacing. Starts with sweet tropical fruit and just a touch of caramel. Finishes very dry with grapefruit citrus and a slight pine resiny hop bitterness. Pretty good, but the sharp bitter finish put me off a little.

Bottle bought at Bier-Deluxe.com. Tasted after Sculpin & Sculpin Grapefruit. Bad idea, since this one comes out much less. Very malty, almost sweet base, honey-like. Nice bitterness in the end. More balanced than the Sculpin’s, but I prefered the bitter erxoticness that those offer.

Tap - shows dark caramel brown with dark honey tones and a finger of clean white foam.
The nose shows sweet tropical fruit and very faint pine resin notes.
The palate shows much of the same with a low carbonation. Very fruit forward in flavor but balanced by a clean IPA bitterness. A good summer beer.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle to tumbler. Dark golden, clear. Good head.
Complex fruity aroma, mango, grapefruit, mild toast, pine, vanilla.
Mild sweet, heavy complex bitter, long bitter finish.
Medium body, medium carb,
As good as Sculpin IMHO, just different hop profile.
Solid West Coast IPA, quite bitter but more nuanced than some of the bigger names.
