4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Auburn pour with a thin head. Aggressive aroma, very fruity, with notes of orange, pineapple, peach, and spicy hops. Light to medium bodied, thin palate, gentle malt, resinous hop profile, the finish is very long and dry, coats the mouth with a sticky pine hop shot. Outstanding.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours bright orange apricot color with a white soapy head that fades and leaves some spotty lacing. Aroma has a nice blend of pineapple and malt and some spruce. Taste is bitter grapefruit and citrus flavors with the malt really kicking in the finish. Palate has good carbonation and leaves a chalky dry finish. Very enjoyable! Would love to try again fresh!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma was quite fruity, citrus, peach, mango I picked up in addition to floral. Appearance is orange golden medium-full off-white head. Light sweet taste. Medium-light malt body, texture on the thin side, mild bitter finish. Smooth finish mixing hop and malt. Not my favorite IPA, but definitely one of the better ones out there.

Pours a nice golden straw color with a one finger head. Very clear. Head reduces to a thin layer that persists throughout. Great citrus hop aroma with grapefruit notes. Solid hop bite that is balanced by a gentle malt backbone. Overall a great hop forward IPA that is one of the top on my list.

12oz bottle at ballast point. Pours thin with a finger of head. Head disappears pretty fast. Golden yellow appearance small steady bubbles. Taste definitely has bite. Hops, citrus, grapefruit, with a slight alcohol taste. Piney on the back end. Pallet is light and somewhat smooth. Overall great beer. I wish this was easily attainable.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2012 Draft. Hazy gold with a small frothy head. Very nice full flavored IPA. Nice dry citrus notes from the hops. Lots of citrus with. Mid to light roasty flavors. Lemon grass. Cinnamon. Dark wildflower honey. Fresh watercress. Somehow crisp and syrupy at the same time. Well blended. Hop bitterness throughout but a soft enough finish. Nice. Nice. Nice. A must try!
