Orange, amber color..not very aggressive pour..into snifter leaving 1/2 finger head..what carbonation..great action that rises to the top in somewhat even rows..aroma of orange, mango, citrus dominant, quite juicy on the nose..hop juice..palate is very smooth and grapefruit heavy..almost like the bubble action is continually pushing up more waves and layers of hoppy ipa goodness...this is extremely drinkable and fresh.Solid dry finish..bitterness is spot on...glad that this is now available in MD..can see why this is one of the finest west coast ipa’s..everything is so well done here hard to find any real flaws..

Pours gold with a thick white head. Aroma is pine and exotic tropical fruits. Taste is a mellow blend of pine, mango, and light malts. The hop resins linger in the aftertaste. Pleasant IPA & good session beer.

amazing fresh-hop aroma full of apricot, grapefruit, and just a touch of cheese.
pours a clear light yellow/orange with fizzy white head.
flavor is predominantly bitter, but mild
medium-thin body, crisp, lightly carbonated, with long hoppy finish.

wow. 650ml bottle poured hazy gold with rocky sticky yellowish head. Aroma is bright and very flural with sweet mago and grapefruit notes up front other citrus fruit notes in the mix also like oranges and peaches. Taste is hoppy and piney notes but still holds a citrus fruit taste with a very good body. Extreamly complex and the aroma is very strong. phenominal IPA

One of the best IPAs. This is packed with hops. Tastes of pine and grapefruit. Very thirst quenching.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a short-lived white head the coats most of the glass it is poured in. Aroma is tropical fruit. Taste is a similar peach/mango/tropical fruit combination with a slight bitterness on the finish. Thick mouthfeel. Lovely beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden yellow with a small head. Floral and grapefruit hops aroma. Bitter and astringent flavor, but a bit of misplaced funk. This is quite good, if overrated.

Nice hazy orange with white head. Aroma is alot of sweet malts, orange, sweet fruits, tropical fruits, honey. Taste has a nice piney bitterness, grapefruit, caramel sweetness, orange, lemon, resin. A very nice IPA. THis bottle was enjoy by 10/24/12 so not sure how old the bottle is? Still an awesome IPA and I bet that it is even more awesome fresher! Cheers!

Pours copper with a pillowy cream colored head with some nice patches of lacing. Smell is light citrus and a touch of sweetness. The taste is balanced if not a bit mild. Pine, grapefruit, bready malt, and just a touch of skittles. I usually like my ipa’s more hop dominant, but this is a pretty solid offering. Well balanced, tasty, and refreshing.

On draft. Oh my. Weenie yellow color, but rich lacing. Flavor is of reduced blood orange, sweet, tart, rich and quick. No malts to speak of. Sweet OJ finish. Wow.
