Bottle but drank from a mug. Unfortunate. Great beer. Aroma is citrus sweet. Fruity ipa, but stays true to hop heavy ipa style. Finishes nice

Pours a cloudy gold with typical lace. Lots of sweet orange on the nose, very nice. Taste? Well, maybe mine is a tad stale from being on the shelf for a bit, but I’m not seeing where this beer’s legendary status comes from. I get a fair amount of juicy orange, which I like, but it doesn’t have the biggest bite and there’s a funky aftertaste I can’t quite place. A good one for sure, but it wouldn’t make my personal IPA top-10.

Pours out a clear orangeish gold with lots of head. Taste is creamy and hoppy. Lots of spicy hops. Great IPA with, some sweetness and lots of pine. Had last year, best IPA.

Always wanted to try this - finally - supremely balanced - quite a malt bite to it but lovely hop load - wish I could get a regular dose here in Oz....! But our Hop Hog just beats it for me.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours into glass a hazy amber/orange, with minimal white head that fizzes away within a minute. Almost no lacing.
Aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, citrus, hops. Very pleasant.
Really pleasant, heavenly mouthfull of citrus hops, grapefruits, pineapple all swirling on the tongue complimenting each other. With a medium body, this is good stuff.
Fantastic. A great example of the great West Coast IPA. Look forward to more.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours a dark golden copper color with tinges of orange. It produces a nice three finger off white head that dissipates rather quickly into a nice layer covering the beer and running around the edge of the glass. Big aroma on this. An immediate dankness rose up from the glass. I got hints of pine, with citrus, mild grapefruit with a hint of lemon. I also got big tropical fruits, definitely some mango. Maybe a hint of peach and a dash of apricot. There is also some nice malty sweetness coming through that masks the alcohol nicely. Starts off very soft on the palate. Not a ton of carbonation to speak of. A lot more lemon on the taste. Picking up a bit more peach and apricot on the palate as well. Middle of the mouth the bitterness comes back into play, some of that piney grapefruit. Slightly sweet towards the back and it finishes very clean. Not really any trace of the alcohol. The body on this is medium light to medium. It’s a rather crisp beer. Some lacing left on the glass. A nice west coast IPA.

Pours golden. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is citrus hops and good amount of bitterness. Palate is a bit fizzy, but smooth finish that leaves bitterness on the tongue. Easy drinking IPA that would be great on a hot day.

Bursting with citrus and pine aroma. Pours a deep golden color with generous white head. The taste is bitter but opens up to some sweeter tropical flavors towards the end. This beer is so good, I feel lucky to be able to drink it.
