3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a burnt orange with gold highlights and a good sized white head, plenty of lacing on the glass. Aroma is definitely on the fruity side of hoppy with mango, orange, lemon, and a subtle pine but not much. Definitely fresh and inviting. The flavor shows a bit of malt as well with some biscuit, breadcrust and caramel, but itís the citrusy hops that dominate. Finishes very flavorful with a well managed bitterness and flavors of toast, grapefruit, orange, and nuts? I dunno. Mouthfeel is easy going and unassuming yet gets good points for that. Great beer that maybe didnít wow me, but I can recognize excellence when I drink it.

Had this beer in Dallas. Sharp amber color and good level of hops. Pair up nicely with fish and chips. Nice citrus taste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rusty amber orange with a nice head. Nose is citrus, tropical fruits and pine. Taste is full of flavor, not terribly bitter and finishes smoothly on a sweet note. Alcohol well masked, drinks as a lighter IPA with a lower ABV. Quite nice from a great microbrewer. Quaff Score 9 / 10

Pours a hazy golden orange with a white head and nice aroma of citrus and hops. Taste is of hops, citrus, and pine, while subtle, with a slight bitter, smooth finish. Very nice IPA, drinkable and great tasting.

Ah, finally, an IPA that is really good. Seems a lot of the "hey lets make a brewery" brewers are producing things that are labelled IPA, but really taste like old stale hops! Donít get me wrong, you have a few out there that are making some really great IPAs and this is one of them. Clean, fresh, bitterly hoppy, foamy, citrusy......hits all the marks! Really nice IPA!!! Iím drinking one now!!!!!

22 ounce bottle from the Brass Tap, poured an range color, aromas of pineapple, tropical fruit, and light malt. Flavors are the same, with the malt playing nicely off the tropical fruit, and light bitterness.

Bottle. 25.4 oz. Pours orange-gold with a thick, frothy white head. Aroma of hop resin, orange, pineapple, honey, Granny Smith apple, vanilla, caramel, and sweet malts. Fuller bodied; perfectly balanced with a juicy, tart, smooth mouthfeel. Slow-burning, crisp, carbonated finish. Outstandingly executed, outrageously delicious, incredibly satisfying Imperial IPA. Great west coast IPA
