4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
From a 12-oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden. Citrusy malt aroma. Grapefruit and faint flora aroma. Three-inch head dissipates to a quarter-inch white head. Citrusy flavors, with pine and herbs. Hint of grapefruit at finish. Clean and crisp mouthfeel. Drinks like a pale ale with a burst of herbal, pine and citrus flavors. Very nice IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great bottle. Pours with a lovely golden colour. White, medium lasting head.
Nose: A very hoppy nose with lots of pine tree and citrus.
Taste: Almost soft, fruity arrival with quite rich carbonation. Immediately followed by a grapefruity, long lasting bitterness. Fruity, fresh and bitter. In the exit the malt appears, with notes of nice caramel mixing into the hoppy bitterness. A very good IPA but rather on the bitter side for my taste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2016 Beautiful clear amber with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Smells strongly of fresh pine. Pleasant steady bitter taste without the highs and lows I get from some. Citrus comes through as it warms. Crisp fresh mouth feel with healthy carbonation. This is a really good IPA!

A very tasty beverage. Clear golden amber/orange with wispy light creamy head. Grapefruit/citrus notes through and through. Don’t really get the hoppiness until the end. Super smooth, not heavy handed or overpowering. Fine brew.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of the best "standard" IPAs out there. The clear amber color makes it really nice to look at. The aromas is well balanced between ctirus hops, malt and fruit. The finish is long without becoming bitter.
