4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light amber colour, almost golden, clear and with a frothy white head. Strong grapefruit and orange aromas, with subtle hop scents too. Taste is bitter with little sweetness, a pretty good balance for an IPA. Lighter body, creamy and smooth on the palate, with lively carbonation. A very strong IPA overall.

Draft/bottle$ I’ve had it plenty of times, rating it now off both. Copper shiney brown color with light head and lacing that lasts on the sides of glass. Sweet, smooth, peachy and delicious. Great perfectly balanced west coast ipa

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 Re-rate. Draft at craft ale house. Pours hazy orange with a medium sized white head, great retention, big bubbles. The aroma is very floral, has some grapefruit, pine, lemon, some spicy notes. The taste on this blows the style away. The bitterness is hard to describe as there is such a complex hop bill. There is a nice citrus balance that fades to more bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by ? At abraxas. Golden with slight haze. Resinous, dry floral hop aroma is intriguing. The nelson sauvin white wine quality is predominent and nice. Body is chewy in a good way. The balance is great.

Stringing the senses of hops, fruits, and sweet flowers. It appears as a darker honey color. The taste is of hops but with a twist of a lemony acid sting. Encoats the palate is hops and the flavor stays even after the drink is gone. Overall, this beer is great on a warm summer day and you just need something to drink to refresh yourself.
