3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ok its about time i rated this wonder!
12oz single bought from "Lifesource" in Salem.
Its an attractive pour..orange clear with a lovely half inch off white frothy head.
Aroma is very hop forward,green onion,lemon zest and resin...some buried nuttiness from the malts.
Taste is similar to nose but without the onion..spicy,hoppy,resin and grapefruit again malts an after thought.
Mouth feel is certainly OK..rather flabby finish though.
OK beer but not living up to the hype IMO.

On draft at Ballast Point. My 100 on rate beer and reasonably so! The best IPA out there! Insane hoppy aroma with a pungent, piney palate. One of the GOATs!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 10-19-2013 (Bottle) When poured, this beer has a medium frothy white head with good retention, golden transparent body, spotty amounts of lacing, very fizzy and fast rising carbonation. The Aroma is mildly hoppy, citrus, lemon, bitter, sweet, peach, and mango. The Taste is bitter, hoppy, citrus, lemon, peach, and mango. The Palate is smooth and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, this beer is quaffable and worth trying with a lingering bitter aftertaste. I did not enjoy the mango flavor and based on that note, this is a beer that I have no interest in drinking again.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy fine to medium sized brown colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a strong bubbly carbonation light orange brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was hoppy. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow hoppy aftertaste. The semi-sharp flavor contained notes of mild citrus mild caramel and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a 12-oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden. Citrusy malt aroma. Grapefruit and faint flora aroma. Three-inch head dissipates to a quarter-inch white head. Citrusy flavors, with pine and herbs. Hint of grapefruit at finish. Clean and crisp mouthfeel. Drinks like a pale ale with a burst of herbal, pine and citrus flavors. Very nice IPA.
