Good beer. Citrus, apricot, pine and honey. Finishes a bit too warm and sticky to make this a truly outstanding beer for me, but I will definitely try another one.

Bottle from Mcgee Liquor in Tucson. Clear gold pour with a short white head leaving moderate lace. Nose is pine, ganja and some caramel. Medium body with moderate, fine carbonation with a creamy mouth feel. Pine, ganja, caramel, lemon and a hint of orange, pineapple and ethanol. Finish is more bitter, with grapefruit and dendelion. Nice balance for a West Coast IPA, but a bit hot. Sorry, but this one just doesn’t stand out to me.

On cask at The Flying Saucer in Raleigh. Light gold pour with a small white head on it. It was a little undercarbonated, but not too badly. Light and fruity hop flavor, but missing a little bit of hoppy bitterness that I was expecting. Easy to drink and very tasty though!

Happy to find this after seeing it on the Zymurgy list. Aroma was pleasant hop mixture tending towards the pine/dank side. Taste was appropriately bitter and well balanced; I found the mouthfeel somewhat towards heavy/mildly syrupy. I may have had unfair expectations.

The pale gold draught came with a light head, and that’s the way I felt when I left. The aromas and flavors were more hoppy than malty but faily balanced. Full bodied and tasty.

Hazy orange with a creamy off-white head.
Nose : Loads of peaches and apricot, enticing.
Palate : Medium to full bodied, creamy, refreshing, great bitterness, really bold with grapefruit and tropical fruity hops in dominance. Long lingering fruity bitter finish. Amazing IPA

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2007 Holy mother of god! Had it on draft at Ballast Point Brewery. This one caught my attention big time! I am now an avid IPA fan...thank you Sculpin an Ballast Point. Very citrusy, excellent aroma and excellent taste. Very balanced beer, bitter yet fruity, taste like a combo of mangos and banannas. Very bitter begining but smooth fruity finish....mmmmmm excellent especially for a 7.0% ABV!! Wish they bottled it or at least brewed it more often, sucks when you want a growler fill but they are still fermenting it.
