Aroma of grapefruit. Pours a clear orangish amber with a none lasting white head and no lacing. The taste is is much like the nose. Grapefruit up front with notes of honey, some pine in the finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, a well done IPA.

Aroma - wonderful florally/citrusy smell.
Appearance - Nice amber w/ decent head/lacing.
Taste - Wonderfully balanced and deep hop taste, not overpowering at all. Palate - Nice carbonation, good mouthfeel and has a lovely dry hoppy finish.
Overall - A class IPA. It just has outstanding hop balance from start to finish. One of my favorite’s and highly recommended.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours light amber/orange. Nice lacing. Spicey citrus aroma. Pungent hops. Taste... Wonderfully balanced. Sweet start with floral spicey hops kick. Perfect palate. Not too thin but not overly thick. Bitterness lingers until the next sips. Truly world class DIPA. On my short list.

Sweet, spicy grapefruit aroma. Almost clear blonde-gold, carpeting head. Mellow caramel with a nice floral hop edge. Chewy. Long woody finish with citrus pith. Hop bomb. On tap, Momo’s. Thanks, Uncle Doug.

Draft at Proof. Deep gold pour with a bubbly white head and laces all the way down the glass. Big mango, peach, pineapple and tangerine hops on the nose with a light sweetness. All the aroma flavor stuck around the flavor with a great balance and lingering bitterness. Great fucking beer.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2014 Off the tap into a tulip glass. One finger of head on a deep golden colored body.
The aroma is pineapple, mango, lemon and grapefruit. Nice.
The taste is biting bitterness with a bit of honey at the end.
A crisp texture and a bit smooth with moderate carbonation and medium body.
It’s a great IPA.

Sweet citrus hop in the aroma. Pours a cloudy light Orange with yellow tints in the light. Good hop in the front with a more constant bitterness throughout.. not really complex in the flavor stages.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2013 Probably as fresh a bottle as you can get in the midwest (over 3 months before the enjoy by date). S: Great aroma, but subtle - sweet grapefruit, pineapple, grass, citrus zest, some breadiness, and decently resinous and astringent. A: Pours a pretty hazy gold with a nice white head that sticks clings to the glass T: Not over-the-top bitterness by any means - pretty dry. The layers of flavor are muddled and not easily perceived, but still very tasty. Lemon zest, grapefruit, solid malt backbone P: Feels like an IPA, does not linger very long O: A good IPA out of the bottle, but I image itâ€™s an entirely different beast when itâ€™s in its infancy on tap. Looking forward to trying it that way one day, but over priced for being bottled.
