3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained white head, with minimal lacing, over a clear amber (SRM 7) body..........nose is pine, grapefruit, hints of apricot, pineapple, hint of toffee/caramel.......taste is heavy pine, grapefruit peel, hints of toffee/caramel, apricot, pineapple, finishing with a moderate biter bite.....mouth feel medium, carbonation high adding spritz. This is obviously a "Left Coast" IPA. It is redolent of hop aromas and flavors with the bitterness nicely balanced back by the malts. This is a cleansing, refreshing, delicious confection.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2013 Bottle. Amber with a white head that laces well. Aroma of lemon, kumquat, stone fruits, pineapple. A little oily, but pretty light-bodied. Taste is barely sweet, but quite fruity, with stone and tropical fruits; lemon. Crisp finish with a fair bit of bitterness (although a little more wouldn’t have hurt). Alcohol is dangerously well-hidden. Not interesting to drink, just very good. 
A bunch of these about 6 weeks old, if the bb is 150 days. A little more complex than before with some citrus flowers in there with the rest. Probably better within a fortnight, but this is very lovely indeed.

22 oz. bottle- Pours cloudy golden with a nice dense two finger head that has duration. Aroma is resinous oily hops, some citrus, but mostly piney resinous hops. The taste is sweet light malt with a wallop of piney bitter hops, now this is an IPA, bold and in your face hops, yet light enough malt to be massively drinkable, there is a nice fruity character to it without it being fruity too, if that makes any sense. I loved this beer, one of the best IPA’s I have ever had, man I love beer.

bomber shared by phirley. orange with a lasting off white head. big hoppy aroma with backing malt. huge complex flavour, wave of hops progressing from hop flavour to long dry bitterness. the malt provides structure but lets the hops lead. lovely.
