3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong hoppy aroma and foretaste followed by a very malty taste that negates the hoppy bitterness. Some grassiness in the malt. Had a 6 pack and drank several before the review to try to understand the very high ratings but maybe just not my style of IPA. I am a hophead but am fine with well balanced IPAs too but I appreciate the initial hop bitterness but am not very crazy about the particular malt taste that follows in this beer. Certainly not a bad beer by any standard but for my taste not deserving the extremely high rankings.

Pours a hazy straw with a thick head from a tap. An excellent representative of what an IPA is or at least should be in the flooded market that exists today. Good beer.

(12 Oz. Btl) - Pours a nice wedding gown white frothy head. Strong aroma of pine resin. Body is a dark apricot color. Flavors of sour orange and apricot. Bitterness lingers on the palate. Nicely done. But, itís definately a sipping beer!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber to the dome. Pours very hazy Orange with a medium to small white pillowy head. Orange is orange zest and fruity. Tate is orange marmalade and jarmy. Very quenching with a light peppery finish with slight warning in the ears. Lots of bÝÝöt in this one. Or fusels. Hips are pleasant and well done.

355ml bottle. Copper colored, clear, nice small bubbles in the glass, medium, high white head. The aroma of grass, cookies and honey. Fresh hoppy taste, fairly light body, smooth in the mouth, sweet notes of orange marmalade and bitter grapefruit peel. A rather dry and bitter finish, meduim long aftertaste. Nice one this!

Glorious. Pours a glowing orange gold with a thick frothy head of hop based froth. The nose is pure citrus and pine resin with a ton of lemon zest and pineapple. Fruity and sweet with light grapefruit bitterness and caramel malts. Good balance overall with a beauty hop profile that screams fresh.
