3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fresh bottle from Premier. Pale gold-amber and a goodly white head with varied lace. Oodles of hop aromas showing cat pee funk and weed, plus hints of peach and lemon. Nose has an actual FEEL to it, a ’nose-palate’ if you will, opens the sinuses. Taste excites the bitter receptors pretty well, strong grapefruit peel with an over wash of some sweet pale fruit and warming alcohol. Herbal-dry palate and long mineral-grassy dry finish. Taste is not layered & fruity as dreamed about, shows a hint match-stick and lots of grass & grapefruit pith & a fighting hint of lemon fruit plus standard-issue pale malt. Fresh and snappy.

Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, bread, and florals. Taste is really well balanced with a nice easy drinking bitterness. Tasty stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of grapefruit. Pours a clear orangish amber with a none lasting white head and no lacing. The taste is is much like the nose. Grapefruit up front with notes of honey, some pine in the finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, a well done IPA.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours light amber/orange. Nice lacing. Spicey citrus aroma. Pungent hops. Taste... Wonderfully balanced. Sweet start with floral spicey hops kick. Perfect palate. Not too thin but not overly thick. Bitterness lingers until the next sips. Truly world class DIPA. On my short list.

Draft at Proof. Deep gold pour with a bubbly white head and laces all the way down the glass. Big mango, peach, pineapple and tangerine hops on the nose with a light sweetness. All the aroma flavor stuck around the flavor with a great balance and lingering bitterness. Great fucking beer.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2014 Off the tap into a tulip glass. One finger of head on a deep golden colored body.
The aroma is pineapple, mango, lemon and grapefruit. Nice.
The taste is biting bitterness with a bit of honey at the end.
A crisp texture and a bit smooth with moderate carbonation and medium body.
It’s a great IPA.
