4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Bottled on March 3 and tasted on May 24...The aroma of this beer poured into a stout glass from a bomber is tantalizing and fresh, bringing apricot, mango and a nice strong hops. The soft, off-white head is small but tenacious, clinging to the sides of my glass and a nice contrast to the soft amber of the liquid inside. A median bitter, but long lasting on my tongue and nicely fizzy without feeling over carbonated. This is a most pleasant brew, nicely balanced, fruity but not too sweet, hoppy bitter and evenly balanced in all the experiences. Another go-to brew on my favorites list!

On tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA. Actually tried this a few months after first trying the Habanero Sculpin, which was a beer I loved. It was nice to try this without the spice. Definitely a top tier IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2011 Bottle. Rerating. Still smells amazing - pine, peach, apple, apricot, pear. Flavor nicely bitter more than sweet, but a really nice latent maltiness. Now I see what all the fuss is about.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2013 Had at The Union, Encinitas CA. Delicious. Perfectly balanced IPA. Pours yellow orange, clear. minimal head. Intense hops on the first sip then mellows out. A unique floral hop notes linger on the palate, slightly spicy and like nothing i have ever tasted. A great high powered session IPA. Highly addictive and perfection at its best. Bravo!
6-Pack in NJ, poured same clear yellow orange, minimal head. Same great freshness and flavors. It travels well, not cheap $14.99 for 6 12oz bottles. Well worth it. A flawless IPA

10/26/12. Bought 2 $3.39 bottles from CBO and was my first beer at wasabi.
Rated as one of the highest ipa's out there and I agree. Hazy gold with a very long-lasting full head. Very strong citrusy aroma and the taste follows the nose. Heading to My Favorites!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2014 This coulda been a contender, if not for the onions. Awfully nice citrus and perfume on the nose, and then onion. No one else will really notice, but it’s there. Otherwise, excellent. Re-rate: The onions are milder this time. But I still don’t understand the hype. I like their Big Eye better.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear golden with decent head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, citrus, some sulphur. Very bitter, lacking malt to balance the high amount of hops.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A West Coast IPA that has a bite and a hop heavy, piny, citrus profile. Recently becoming more easy to find in the Chicago market. Perfect option for a canned IPA.

650ml bottle from Slowbeer. Pours amber with a big head. Big nose, floral and hoppy. Typical DIPA taste, strong and sweet and bitter. A good one.
