3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with decent sized white head. Nice citrusy hop aroma. Pleasant and nicely balanced hop flavor. A good IPA, but frankly it doesn’t stand out. I was expecting more based on the high scores.

On draft at Ballast Point. My 100 on rate beer and reasonably so! The best IPA out there! Insane hoppy aroma with a pungent, piney palate. One of the GOATs!

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2013 Bra balans med fin god arom med frukt o citrus. Beskan ligger bra i munnen med lång eftersmak. Detta är utifrån att vara en Ipa en mycket bra sådan.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours amber with white head and good lace. Aroma is fruity and citrus hops that come through in the taste with lots of sweet stone fruit flavor along side grapefruit and lemon. Good bitterness with a long dry hoppy finish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Let me just say, I don’t know how this is rated any less than pliny. It’s hard to tell the difference. Pours a clear golden with a white head that turns a little rocky. A solid IPA, just the right amount of alcohol, pine, resin, and grapefruit.

Bottle. Pours bright orange with a frothy white head, nice thick lacing on the glass. Heavy pine and citrus in the nose, a touch of melon underneath. Nicely balanced flavor, bitter hop blast to start, lemon tartness with a touch of sweet malts, ends long with the hops lingering on for quite some time. Medium carbonation makes this smooth and drinkable. Just a well done IPA, nothing unusual, just an almost ideal example of the style.

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle into tulip. Minneapolis.
Appearance: Orange/copper in color. Generous white head with good retention. Impressive lacing. Pretty close to ideal.
Aroma: Lots of citrus on the nose. Orange, grapefruit. Peach. Some floral notes also. Really nice.
Taste: Pretty dry upfront with mild bitterness in the finish.
Palate: Medium/light body. Soft mouthfeel. Longer finish.
Overall: This beer has a lot going for it. The aroma is fantastic. The hops profile is pretty much ideal for me. Appearance was very nice as well. The body was a little lighter than I prefer, but I know this was by design. Overall a very nice beer.
