3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Pours a little on the light side but otherwise amber. Head dissipates pretty rapidly leaving some good lacing.
S: Aroma is very fruity. Appricot... orange are the big players. Some hops but lighter.
T: Subtle fruit notes. A little bit of fruit. A little bit of malt. The bitterness seems to overwhelm the other notes and fade quickly leaving a dull bitterness.
P: Carbonation is a little aggressive. Decent flavor development.
I was so excited to try this beer! Great ratings.... picture of a sculpin (my wife totally takes care of them at the aquarium!) IPA, Ballast Point!!! But this beer was pretty disappointing. It wasnít bad but it wasnít good either. A little uncontrolled... doesnít bring anything special to the table. The Big Eye IPA and the Calico Amber were way way better. I have a growler of this bad boy in the fridge so I will see if it gets better.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a crystal clear mid-amber with 5mm of creamy dense foam that retained well and laced well as rings and web. Carbonation moderate to high with medium sized bubbles. Aroma nicely hoppy - very piny plus hints of citrus/grapefruit and hints of tropical fruits/pineapple. Taste is very piny plus with a quite strong, nice citric and pine bitterness plus a light caramel malt; alcohol well hidden; well balanced. Medium body. Crisp, fresh and dry with grapefruit plus hints of pine on the finish. A good IPA.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a finger-thick white head. Aroma is strong fruit - mango and apricot. Medium body, taste leans more to the hops but isnít overpowering, balanced well. Finish is a little dry with more of the fruit character coming through. Well done!

BB unknown? from DMís. We all known what it looks and tastes like so i really donít have to ramble. On this sample itís a good IPA, it does everything that itís supposed to do. Big standout is the drinkability with that 7% well hidden.
