Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate orange, peach, mango, and grapefruit. It pours a mostly transparent amber with lots of sediment and a two finger off-white head. The flavor starts with moderate orange with a touch of peach and mango. The finish has moderate grapefruit with a touch of pine. Medium bodied with mild carbonation and a soft mouthfeel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice, bright hoppy nose with assertive citrus and resin notes. Bitterness on the palate is sharp and is backed by a decent malt presence. Really nice IPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On Nitro tap at brewery. Beautiful golden pour with thick, puffy, white head that only nitro can do. Nose is citrus, pine, and some tropical fruits. Taste follows the nose but the hops are dialed down a little compared to other IPAs. Mouthfeel is crazy good and creamy.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lots of lemony grapefruit and pine in the nose. Looking for a little more malt to balance all those hop flavors. Some honey up front in the taste.
however the bitterness does not over power the taste. Clean and very dry finish. Very good. There could be a couple of IPAs I like better, but this is up there.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright gold pour with a thin white head that left a few spots of lacing. Bready aroma with a lot of pine and citrus hops, which lean more towards lemon and grapefruit. Flavor is very lemony, somewhat doughy, with a sharp pine bite. Light and crisp, pretty refreshing. Well carbonated. Lingering bitter finish that seems slightly abrasive. A good beer, no doubt, but I’m having trouble trying to figure out why this is highly rated. For the trouble you have to go through to get it, I’d rather have Pliny, or even Blind Pig.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is citrusy hops, tangerine and lemon. Nothing but sweet goodness.
The appearance is banana yellow, tiny bubbles of carbonation. Fluffy head; decent spotty lace. Very "pale."
The flavor is citrus: tangerine, orange, lemon, hint of apple skins. Very sweet with just a hint of pale malts. Meshes beautifully. A touch of dry yeast at the finish.
The palate is slightly fizzy and juicy. Very hefty finish. A little dry. (It reminds me of Rogue Yellow Snow, So. Tier Krampus.) This is a sweet, summery IPA and a damn good one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from the tap at Rattle N Hum. Poured a hazy orangish gold with a white head that dissiapted slowly to the edges. Aroma had a nice combination of citrus, grapefruit and backing pine and resin. Flavor had a more pine and grapefruit with the citrus and resin calming down a bit. Nicely balanced ipa.
