3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from SB 150904.
Clear golden amber withe creamy lasting and lacing white head.
Powerful citrus and tropical fruit in the nose, not so much resins. Very nice and pleasant bitterness with long aftertaste. Truly nice, but there is a bit to much alcohol breaking through that decreases the taste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange-amber pour with a two-fingered, frothy white head. Very sticky lace. Awesome hops blast up front with fresh squeezed grapefruit and pine juice. Flavors of lemon pith, ruby red grapefruit, pineapple and pine resin. A good portion of caramel malt for a complimentary backbone. Good body, nice balance with a strong, lingering, bitter finish. This brews most significant feature is its freshness. Not bad at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very well made west coast IPA with a clean finish. This is definitely a floral IPA with more of a citrus aroma than pine cone, similar to a better tasting Bridgeport IPA. However, the palate is a little empty leading a finish that leaves you wanting for something more. This makes for a good sessionable IPA although the ABV is a little high (and the ABV is masked very well!). While not an epic beer, I would definitely recommend this beer for casual drinking or a sample if you haven’t had it before.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a light nearly transparent gold. A thin head retains well as the beer is drunk. The hop flavor is pronounced citrus and is crisp and refreshing for an IPA. Overall I think the beer is a tad overrated, but is none the less a strong example of the category.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy-golden with one inch froth head. Sticky lacing. Piney hop aroma with a citrus / fruit nose. Flavor offers a blast of hops and slight bitterness on the finish. Well balanced. Still, this beer is mellower than I had expected. Slight citrus after-taste, but dry. Should be a tasty brew for the summer. Will have to track more down..
