3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong citrus bitter hop nose. Gold amber, with a small head and great lacing. A little syrupy. Tart acidity undertones. Citrus hops dominate the palate, lemon, grapefruit. Bitter hop carbonation, and slight lingering bitterness aftertaste.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2012 the aroma right off the bat was the citrus of the hops and as it warmed some i picked up the apricot and peach...what a wonderful scent to have in this beer...medium bodied and smooooooth...hops do no over power this beer at all..the citrus flavor and the apricot are forefront on this one and the smoothness as it goes down. on the back end you do get a bit of the lemon blended with the bitterness of the hops and it works...very very good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear, orange colour with big, stable head. Nice lacing too. After opening the bottle, it feels big punch of citrus (grapefruit!), exotic fruits (mango, maybe even passion fruit), some floral note and malty base on background. Taste is light to medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter, light dry. Finish is very long, biiter, but not harsh or tart. Soft carbonation. Medium to full body. Fantastic, very drinkable, no doubt one of the best IPA I’ve ever tried.

Very consistent, right now I’m drinking this on a nightly basis. This is pretty much IPA perfection, and is pretty much everything I want in an IPA. Decidedly better in bottle than on tap. Unfortunately I can’t find it in bottle anywhere other than Julio’s Liquors. Will stock up soon for the summer before going back home, thinking ~20 bottles, ~$200, hope that will be enough.

Clear amber; medium frothy white head; appetizing appearance. Incredible aroma, lots of grapefruit, passionfruit. Easy to gulp down; medium bitterness, white grapefruit, slightly powdery texture. On the dry side but carrying a lot of flavor. This hits you in the same way that peeling a grapefruit releases its aromatics. Exceptional IPA.

Thanks to Cletus for thiis. Pours a deep yellow orange with thick off-white head. Aroma is very refreshing of citrus and ever so slight floral hops, some sweet fruits, and grass. Flavor matches very well and is quite a nice brew to drink. Just wish I had this available to me.

Very nice IPA. Hoppy, but very balanced and not at all over the top in any way. Fresh.
