UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 This is a great IPA! Bitter but still fruity. Great with spicy salsa. Refreshing. Apricot and grapefruit hoppy taste. Dry, but still quenching. Must try!

It’s already been said but this is a great IPA. Really bright citrus taste with a little metallic hops residue on the finish. Crisp with not a lot of malt. Good stuff.

Drank from a bottle after a sauna. Fruity, strongly hopped traditional IPA. The taste is a bit sharp but otherwise it’s good.

Poured from tap into Chimay glass a nice amber with white head and lace. Aroma was grapefruit and a bit floral. Taste to me was a better balance between the hops and malt. It was grapefruit not doubt but not a bomb. Med body. Really liked this one, a winner for sure.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Pours a little on the light side but otherwise amber. Head dissipates pretty rapidly leaving some good lacing.
S: Aroma is very fruity. Appricot... orange are the big players. Some hops but lighter.
T: Subtle fruit notes. A little bit of fruit. A little bit of malt. The bitterness seems to overwhelm the other notes and fade quickly leaving a dull bitterness.
P: Carbonation is a little aggressive. Decent flavor development.
I was so excited to try this beer! Great ratings.... picture of a sculpin (my wife totally takes care of them at the aquarium!) IPA, Ballast Point!!! But this beer was pretty disappointing. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t good either. A little uncontrolled... doesn’t bring anything special to the table. The Big Eye IPA and the Calico Amber were way way better. I have a growler of this bad boy in the fridge so I will see if it gets better.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle to English pint glass. Pours slightly hazy light amber. Two finger head, nice lacing. Aroma of mango, apricot, lemon zest. Taste is very hoppy bitter with nice light sweetness for balance. Medium-full body, lightly carbonated, slightly sticky mouth feel. Finishes with a complex symphony of spruce, apricot, melon, earthy herbs. This is a very fine west coast IPA. It’s worthy of it’s 100 rating.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Burk på bishop. Brunröd med mycket vitt skum. Kryddig humledoft. Lätt metallisk smak med lite fruktighet som försvinner fort.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber bottle: Pours a clear golden with a thin frothy off-white head that diminishes to the perimeter of the glass. Has an excellent hoppy aroma with hints of peaches and apricots. Citrusy lasting flavor is hoppy with a medium body and a mild bitterness in the finish. This beer is very refreshing with an all around WOW factor-excellent!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2014 Pours clear amber with moderate head. Nose is pine, mango, tropical fruit, hops. Taste is pine and peppery spicy hops on the front, on the back end it smooths out a lot with mango and tropical fruit notes. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel for an ipa. For my money the best IPA out there.
