Bottle from the beer store. Pours golden with minimal head. Aroma of grapefruit/hops, and taste of citrus/hops. A nice IPA that has some good depth.

Det är sådana här tillfällen som gör att det pliktskyldiga provandet av hinkvis med undermålig lager plötsligt känns värt besväret. När en smak verkar stannar kvar i munnen och minnet för all evinnerlighet vill man låta det förbli så tills hungern eller törsten tvingar en att skölja bort hela härligheten. I bästa fall med en ny klunk Sculpin, men troligast med...ja, tyvärr...ännu en lager.

22oz. Bomber. A little lighter color than expected would call it something similar to straw colored with a quickly disspearing white head. Crazy big nose that seems to be dominated by amarillo hops. Heavily tropical with hints of peach, mango and even a little melon. Flavor is similar with a strong grapefruit presence and a caramel note that is backed by a nice bitter streak that hits late. The malt is definitely there, but a bit understated to let the hops stand out. Mouthfeel is slightly thin, but not watery. Ends with a lingering bitterness and a touch of resin. Teetering on the border of a 2IPA. Impressive.

Bottle. Lots of sweet and fresh grass hops, sweet hop taste, crisp but lingering bitter on palate, and a light amber. Great IPA but it seems everyone already is aware.

Pours slightly darker than straw-colored with a large white head. There’s definitely orange and cat piss in the nose. I swear I smell marijuana, too. Bizarre. This would be a great summertime IPA because it is so refreshing. Lots of citrus on the palate, with flavors of orange and grapefruit. It’s not particularly dry and there’s just a small bit of sweetness on the tale end. Really great beer, but the hype seems a bit over the top.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours clear golden orange with a white head. Big citrus pop on the nose with orange and grapefruit, piney resiny hops. Flavor has citrusy sweetness up front with a big piney bitterness on the back of the tongue. Nice spiciness with the hops to give an extra kick and plenty of earthy sweet malt to tame it a bit. A bit if an alcohol kick on the way down. Good IPA, but a bit overrated.

On tap at Capone’s on 5/29/2010. Pale yellow, mostly transparent with a bit of head. Aroma has lots of clean pinecone hops, very similar to PTE, but a bit less dry. Flavor has lots of pinecone hops, good bitterness, some flowery and herbal character. A faint vegetal astringency and a touch of sweetness are all that separate it from PTE. Good carbonation and mouthfeel, hoppy bitterness finishes it nicely.
