4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A really fantastic full flavored IPA. This is so balanced. The aroma is super herbal and hoppy. Tons of citrus. Same with the taste...with a really nice and sweet malt backbone. Palate is perfect and this finished dry and balanced. BALANCED! Its alittle pale yellowish with haze....I love those IPA that are bright orange and clear. A wonderful brew.

Aroma is citrus floral light caramel malt. Appearance is light orange yellow. Small tan head that dissipates quickly. Taste is grapefruit aroma hops and bitterness forward. Floral aroma hopping as well. Palate is medium and crisp. Overall an excellent IPA. Nothing new here though and overpriced.

Thanks kmweaver for sharing this bomber: Tremendous resin and orange notes in hop aroma exponentially increased in hop flavor. I suspect a touch of crystal malt supplements the lean base malt profile. There is a curious drying note in finish that I find leans toward solvent warmth, yet my knowing informal tasting partner kmweaver calls íslightly vinousí. This may be balancing, or possibly a mark off (most prominent as beer warms). Amazing hop schedule-- is it simcoe/amarillo?

Great beer. Aroma is strong in hops, fruit, and sweetness. The appearance is a clear light orange. Taste is complex with hops, fruit, bitter, then a bit of a sweet finish.

The beer pours a dark golden copper color with tinges of orange. It produces a nice three finger off white head that dissipates rather quickly into a nice layer covering the beer and running around the edge of the glass. Big aroma on this. An immediate dankness rose up from the glass. I got hints of pine, with citrus, mild grapefruit with a hint of lemon. I also got big tropical fruits, definitely some mango. Maybe a hint of peach and a dash of apricot. There is also some nice malty sweetness coming through that masks the alcohol nicely. Starts off very soft on the palate. Not a ton of carbonation to speak of. A lot more lemon on the taste. Picking up a bit more peach and apricot on the palate as well. Middle of the mouth the bitterness comes back into play, some of that piney grapefruit. Slightly sweet towards the back and it finishes very clean. Not really any trace of the alcohol. The body on this is medium light to medium. Itís a rather crisp beer. Some lacing left on the glass. A nice west coast IPA.

It pours amber with an off-white head and lacing. The aroma is hops and citrus. The taste is floral hops, apricot, and grapefruit. Itís dry with a nice balance of bitterness and fruit. This is definitely a very good IPA. I think it fell a bit short of the hype. Itís definitely quality though.
