3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a nice thick IPA that has good balance but still a bite of bitterness as the end. A little sweet on the palate. Very good IPA but not the best.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear light amber with two fingers of creamy white head that never completely disappears and leaves excellent lacing. The nose smells of grapefruit and mango with some pine and grass aromas. Taste is of tropical fruit with a herbal component and a grassy bitterness that is strong but not overwhelming. Has the tiniest amount of sweetness but it is perceptible. Mouthfeel is creamy and medium bodied with crisp carbonation. A hop forward and drinkable IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pour at Whip In. Pours clear amber with a white finger head. Sticky white lacing all down the glass. Smells of hops and a variety of sweet fruits ad citrus akin to a great IPA. Flavor is faintly fruity with a full hop and malt balance. Light and enjoyable IPA for any time of year.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at a recent Wirtz Beverage/Illinois seminar, and poured by the staff from bombers to stemware showing a clear, golden color, with creamy, off white head foam, and decent spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was light mid-fruit sweetness, resin, then grapefruity citrus. The flavor boasted a pronounced hop bitterness rounded nicely by the malt. Medium bodied, bold, yet rather sessionable.

Pours gold with a white head. Piney hop aroma with some malt. Taste is bitter piney hops, a touch of citrus, and a decent malt back bone.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA. Actually tried this a few months after first trying the Habanero Sculpin, which was a beer I loved. It was nice to try this without the spice. Definitely a top tier IPA.
