4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A really fantastic full flavored IPA. This is so balanced. The aroma is super herbal and hoppy. Tons of citrus. Same with the taste...with a really nice and sweet malt backbone. Palate is perfect and this finished dry and balanced. BALANCED! Its alittle pale yellowish with haze....I love those IPA that are bright orange and clear. A wonderful brew.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2011 This one was kind of hard to find, kind of. Poured from a bottle, instantly the nice big bubbly head settled to little or no lacing. Scent was very dry, with ginger and light spice, citrus even. The taste was impressive, almost too dry for me at first, but then settled to a nice spicy sweetness with notes of grapefruit and light caramel. Very light on the palate, a rather filling and flavorful beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 17, 2015 Bottle. Light amber, hazy, average to large and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, faint caramel and some fruitiness, lots of piney - some grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and dryish flavor, faint caramel and light fruitiness, lots piney - some citrus hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish, faint caramel and light fruitiness, lots of piney - some citrus hoppyness. Dryish IPA, really nice hoppyness - not too malty/too much caramel. Ace.

This starts with a great hoppy aroma, with pine, citrus, and tropical fruit notes. This pours a clear light amber, with a huge amount of visible carbonation, and just a thin white head. There’s a nice blast of chewy hops, with a touch of tropic fruits in the finish. The beer leaves thick lacing on the glass. This is a great example of a West coast IPA.

Cask at Get Real NY. Dry hopped with Fuggles. Very nice fruity aroma, lots of citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit. Taste is hoppy, pine and fruit, but very smooth. Light bitterness on the finish. Very fruity, flavorful, smooth, complex, amazing IPA. Need to try this again, and soon. One of the few beers at Get Real that really stood out.

They must add a half ton of hops to this after the boil. The hop flavor is just ridiculous. The amount of hops that San Diego goes though is staggering. Anywho, malt is well in the back, bitterness is understated, and hop flavor with all sticky grassy citrus-y goodness. No taste of alcohol at all. A fine IPA. Might be the hoppy-ist single IPA I have had. If you really pay attention the malt under all the good hops isn’t that great, but it is buried so deep I don’t care.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2011 On tap at The Monk. Pours an opaque yellow golden with a small white head leaving some nice lacing. Aromas of mango, apricot and lemon. Great nose. Smells like a tropical punchbowl. Taste brings out some more lemon with zesty citrus flavours combined with a finishing bitterness and mango. Best ipa at The Monk so far. Very pleased with this one

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a golden color, mediocre head. Lots of citrus and hop flavor, grapefruit, apricots. Taste was med bitterness. Palate is med body, slicker texture, soft carb. Aroma was better than taste but this is got promise. Just needs tweaked a bit and it could be a big winner.

Botella, thansk for sharing this 3rd best IPA on RB Plovmand! Hazy golden with a nice white medium head. Pleasant ripe fruity sweet like hoppy aroma with bit wet dog underneath. Good filling mouthfeel. Ripe fruity hoppy piney caramel sweet and bitter flavour. Fruity dry bitter finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. This was different from what I was expecting. Not so much citrus but definitely a different fruity blend. Must be the apricot/mango flavors noted in the description. Pours a great looking golden color with a lasting foamy white head. Thick mouthfeel for an IPA. Not my favorite IPA, but a great offering.
