4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Capone’s on 5/29/2010. Pale yellow, mostly transparent with a bit of head. Aroma has lots of clean pinecone hops, very similar to PTE, but a bit less dry. Flavor has lots of pinecone hops, good bitterness, some flowery and herbal character. A faint vegetal astringency and a touch of sweetness are all that separate it from PTE. Good carbonation and mouthfeel, hoppy bitterness finishes it nicely.

Bottle pour, two finger head, good lacing. Both aroma and taste are heavy on the hops. Overall, a pretty good IPA.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light orange, a little hazy, and a little more than a finger of white head. Awesome sweet fruit aroma of peach, apricot, pineapple, mango, orange. Taste has a nice shot of bitterness on the tongue and then the fruity hops take over. It’s near perfect on the palate, light on the malt and hop forward. Great IPA!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Just over three months old bottle, which is unfortunately the best we could ever hope for over here. Pours a deep gold with slight chill hazing and off-white head. Interesting bouquet with hot rubber, a bit like a vigorously used eraser, a dank quality like a moist dugout, some pine needles and tropical fruits, mostly mango. The palate is medium bodied with good freshness, pleasant, off-dry and round flavour with a very long bitterness which stays at a pleasant level throughout. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very light orange color with minimal head. Upon closer inspection there is a slight haze and I can see some extremely small particles floating around. Aroma is citrus and pine and I also detect some tropical fruits. There is a lot going on here. Taste is similar to the aroma with citrus being well represented along with some pine notes. The body is light to medium and the finish is very dry with a lingering bitterness. This would be fantastic on a hot summer day and what you would expect from a West Coast IPA. One of the better IPAs I have had.
