4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into an Arrogant Bastard 0.5 L glass. There is no freshness date. Beer is hazy and amber in color. Carbonation is moderate to high with biggish bubbles. Head is thick, large bubbles, leaves some lacing as it falls away.
Beer smell like funky pine hops and not much else. Smells fine for an IPA.
Spicy, citrus and pine hops. Beer is not dry but rather wet. Almost no aftertaste. The hops cover you mouth. Second taste oranges, pine, lemon, some sweetness, a very good tasting beer.
Medium body good connectiveness in the flavors, hits all the centers on the palate, drinkability high.
Serving type: bottl

I will need to review this again one day when I have a fresh bottle. This bottle was about 2 months old. Delicious though. Fruitiness from hops and nice malt backbone, with a nice snap at the very end.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber into Stone IPA glass. Light amber body with a small white head that fades into a thin patches. Aroma is big initial peach and mango that is quickly displaced by lots of grapefruit, lemon and pine notes on the outskirts. Sweet tropical sugars in the nose as well. The flavor is mostly grapefruit, but the orange and lemon mix in as well. Just enough sweetness and lightly bready malt in the background to provide some contrast. There is big bitterness accompanies the dominant grapefruit, keeping things fairly dry and crisp. Leaves some nice light lacing. Moderate carbonation. Excellent stuff.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle courtesy of trade from mobz24, poured into a snifter glass.
Clear golden color with frothy head. Very aromatic -- citrusy, tropical fruit flavors come through, especially pineapple, mango and grapefruit. Mainly grapefruit and more tropical fruit flavors in the taste. A bit of sweetness to start off, but then comes hoppy bitterness taste that mixes citrus, tropical fruits, piney and grassy notes and some resinous flavors. Mainly citrus and grapefruit in the finish. Light and crisp mouthfeel, good carbonation. Very long dry finish that leaves a resinous grapefruit flavor tingling in the mouth. Very drinkable and enojoyable beer worth seeking out.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured with a golden hue and an inch of head that quickly faded. Tasted of lemons and a little peach. Hoppy as an imperial ipa, but much lighter bodied. The bitterness lingers and has a cumulative effect. The more I drank the more similar to a bitter Belgian ipa it became.
