On tap at the Linkery, Sweet and bitter with lots of citrus and slight pine. It has a caramel/honey backbone that comes with a hearty dose of malts to balance the big hop kick. Very clean and fresh, its actually between a double and a regular IPA. Very tasty a fruity finish.

Best aroma Iíve had since Hopslam. Big grapefruit bitterness and piney hops. The foam is filmy and clustery, like sea foam. Nice oily finish. Really good, I hate Iím heading home away from this!

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. Itís a rather crisp beer. Some lacing left on the glass. A nice west coast IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I enjoyed this one, but it was different than i expected. cloudy appearance. has a very apricot/peachy sweet flavor with a big load of dry hop in the finish. i think its just personal taste, because obviously this is a well made beer, but i prefer my IPAs more on the bitter and dry end of the spectrum while this one is more bright and zingy while still having some IBUs. I will have to revisit someday, as iíve only had one 22oz bomber, but as it stands I prefer their Big Eye to this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From San Diego. Bright translucent orange-copper with small watery white head. Lots of fruit in the smell - mango, pineapple, citrus. Tastes of fruity bitter hop and malt with a long slightly spicy finish. More malt and less hop than I expected. Body is crisp but juicy. Not very big and quite malty for an IPA but still very tasty.

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.
