4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at Deep Ellum with my dinner. Pours a crystal clear golden amber, nice half inch white head that holds nicely, and leaves excellent lacing. Very piney nose, with plenty accompanying fruitiness - grapefruit and papaya to the fore. Some nice light caramel maltiness present too. A delicate caramel malt sweetness is followed by a pretty prominent hop bite, with nice citric flavour. Dry finish, very dry in fact, with a slightly unpleasant yeasty aftertaste, that lasts. Nice prickly carbonation, medium body and a decent boozy presence make up for it though. Not as overwhelmingly complex as I expected, but pretty darn good as far as ipa goes.

Lots of grapefruit in this one. Bitter citrus hops, caramel, orange, tart fruit and pine with undertones of bread. Well balanced and a dry finish. Lives up to its reputation as a world class IPA

Bottle (22 ounce): Clear, golden with a hint of copper and a thick head. Huge lift of fresh hops. Lantana, citrus, pine. Very fresh. Green but rich.. Dry to off dry. Medium to medium high bitterness. Not sour. Rich, very fresh. Great weight and length. Bitterness is balanced by flavor. Tropical, citrus, pine hop flavors with malt to match. Intense west coast IPA but as balanced as they come.
Intense but lovely beer.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2013 Had at The Union, Encinitas CA. Delicious. Perfectly balanced IPA. Pours yellow orange, clear. minimal head. Intense hops on the first sip then mellows out. A unique floral hop notes linger on the palate, slightly spicy and like nothing i have ever tasted. A great high powered session IPA. Highly addictive and perfection at its best. Bravo!
6-Pack in NJ, poured same clear yellow orange, minimal head. Same great freshness and flavors. It travels well, not cheap $14.99 for 6 12oz bottles. Well worth it. A flawless IPA

Had on tap. Fairly minimal carbonation and lacing. Amber-colored, hoppy, but not as strong as I’d expected based on its billing as a "Double IPA". Not really anything special, but a good IPA.

10/26/12. Bought 2 $3.39 bottles from CBO and was my first beer at wasabi.
Rated as one of the highest ipa's out there and I agree. Hazy gold with a very long-lasting full head. Very strong citrusy aroma and the taste follows the nose. Heading to My Favorites!
