3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mango, grapefruit, kiwi, sweet resiny aroma. Cloudy honey gold with a thick foamy white head that sticks around for quite a while. Lots of grapefruit. But not so bitter that it's overpowering. This is very well balanced and very smooth. It has a crisp finish but then a bit of an after-warmth in the throat. Pretty good stuff.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lots of grapefruit in this one. Bitter citrus hops, caramel, orange, tart fruit and pine with undertones of bread. Well balanced and a dry finish. Lives up to its reputation as a world class IPA

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.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is an unbelievable beer. The look is a bright golden orange color with a good head. The aroma from this glass is complex and unique with some citrus, mango, lemon, pine, and on and on. Then the taste is unlike anything else in the IPA world; it changes as you drink it with a hoppy and fruity taste. One of the top three IPAs Iíve ever had.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours hazy apricot, nice head and lasting lace, citrusy, apricot biscuits aroma, beautifully balanced sweet apricot fruit leather and hoppy middle palate, finishing full-bodied and crisp. No sign of the 7% ABV on the palate, a benchmark IPA!

Aromatics are lovely and very "light" in hops lots of citrus and bright fruits. Just a lovely smelling beer. Those aromatics are replicated in a super balanced taste lots of grapefruit and mild bitterness.

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

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle. Clear golden orange with foamy white head and some nice lacing. Fantastic aroma - citrus, pine and tropical fruit. Taste is bitter throughout with some sweetness opening up in the middle followed by a bitter dry finish that lingers and lingers. Very nicely balanced. Really enjoyed this beer, only thing that didnít suit my taste was the heavy dryness. Mouthfeel was moderate with crisp carbonation. An excellent IPA.

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. Itís worthy of itís 100 rating.
