UPDATED: NOV 15, 2014 Bottle pour from Whole Foods Market - Redwood City, CA. So crisp with heavy grapefruit and the right amount of honey. Ideal Sunday breakfast drinking.

Tap and bottle. Somewhat underwhelming aroma, mostly caramel and a little bit of grassy hops. Cloudy copper color. Flavor profile nearly identical to the Big Eye but the hops are turned up a little. Citrus hops, mango, pineapple, caramel. I think the most redeeming quality is the malt and hop balance.

Had on draft at Aces and Ales in Las Vegas. The hops are citrusy, floral, with slight pine and resin. Caramely malts, a little bready malt character. A solid IPA.

Bottle (355 ml). Thanks to Tom for this one! Clear golden/orange with a medium off-white head and heavy lacing. Aroma is intensely fruity (mango, orange, apricot, peaches, pineapple), floral hops and slight honey presence. Taste is moderately malty with fruity notes (less than in the aroma), honey and moderate but long lasting bitterness. Medium body. Dangerously drinkable and extremely refreshing. Quite complex for an IPA. Wow!

Bottle pours medium-dark yellow with white head. Aroma pine with slight citrus. Taste initial malt sweetness replaced by citrus and pine. Clean brief finish of citrus and pine. Full palate. Alcohol not evident.
I am not a huge IPA guy but this is a tasty well made IPA.

Poured from a bottle into dogfish ipa glass. Golden orange clean appearance with a hearty white head. Smells very heavy on pine with citrus overtones. Fruit is in the background too, apricot I think? Bitter front that gets a bit malty, then more fruit and citrus, mostly grapefruit, into a bitter finish. Nice, crisp, refreshing, balanced.

Pours golden with decent sized white head. Nice citrusy hop aroma. Pleasant and nicely balanced hop flavor. A good IPA, but frankly it doesn’t stand out. I was expecting more based on the high scores.
