3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The beer pours a clear, light amber color with a dense white head, and sticky lacing.
S: A very intense nose. Lots of pineapple fruitiness and plenty more piney hops. There’s a moderate grapefruit aroma, along with mild herbal notes and sweet tropical fruits. Overall a really dank hop character.
T: The flavor is very heavy on the pine. Plenty of perfume with grapefruit, pineapple, and floral hop flavors. There is a decent amount of bitterness to it and only a touch of malt sweetness.
M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation and a little bit of bitterness on the finish.
O: A nice IPA, here. Perhaps not as good as Melrose, but definitely something you could have a glass or two of.

Man Jullian can brew the shit outta some beer! Pours a nice gold color with a fluffy white head. Tons of hops bursting in the aroma, citrus, resin, floral, spicy, earthy. Wow. Flavor is just juicy and perfectly bitter. Just a hint of caramel to keep this from going bitter crazy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Toronado SD. Pours a low haze, light orange. Weak head formation. Nose is puppy breath, orange rind, orange gummies. Taste is spicy, boozy, thick cantaloupe, peppercorn. Palate is very thick and nutty...heavy. Too chewy with mild paper in the finish. Small chemical off flavor. Needs some work.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2011 On tap (multiple glasses) at Blue Palms 3rd Anniversary. Pours with a clear golden hued body and a small white head that lasts for the duration. Huge citrusy notes, dank, tropical fruit, grapefruit, resin. Minimal malt aromas. Flavors are dank, papaya, citrus, and tropical fruit. All about the hops. Bitter balance, floral, bursting with flavor and aroma. Lively bubbles, dry with a medium lingering bitterness. Very tasty! Second batch is even an improvement on the first!
