UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 bottle. Deep golden with one finger head. Pretty decent light malt base with big west coast hops. The aroma is excellent, but the taste just doesn’t match. This is pretty darn good, but I’ve certainly had better -- the 100/100 seems a bit generous.

Had on draft at Aces and Ales in Las Vegas. The hops are citrusy, floral, with slight pine and resin. Caramely malts, a little bready malt character. A solid IPA.

Tap and bottle. Somewhat underwhelming aroma, mostly caramel and a little bit of grassy hops. Cloudy copper color. Flavor profile nearly identical to the Big Eye but the hops are turned up a little. Citrus hops, mango, pineapple, caramel. I think the most redeeming quality is the malt and hop balance.

Draft pour at Whip In. Pours clear amber with a white finger head. Sticky white lacing all down the glass. Smells of hops and a variety of sweet fruits ad citrus akin to a great IPA. Flavor is faintly fruity with a full hop and malt balance. Light and enjoyable IPA for any time of year.

65 cl bottle @ home. Pours clear amber with a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is peach, grapefruit, pine, citrus, and caramel. Flavour is caramel, grapefruit, and pine – with a bitter finish.

This is a great IPA! Bitter but still fruity. Great with spicy salsa. Refreshing. Apricot and grapefruit hoppy taste. Dry, but still quenching. Must try!

Tap at Craftheads. Grassy and citrus hops. Decent bitterness. Not a wow factor for me, but still pretty nice. Slight candy sweetnes, bit of fruit.

Great everyday (and hig quality) drinking. Lovely balanced IPA with spicy hops, some resin, good length; everything just seems to fall into place. A little fruit early but does dry out a touch. Terribly sensible beer but very appealing.

Com um aroma satisfatório, bem lupulada. Espuma nao se mantém por muito tempo, amargor bom mas poderia ser mais presente em toda degustação.

Taste was good. Was expecting a bit more in fullness, although had a nice taste. Would buy it again for a quality IPA. Just wouldn't quite place it as a absolute favorite.
