3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very clear golden color with a huge creamy white head that persists. Nose is subtlely hoppy with citrusy notes. Flavor is a bit wattery, not as potent as was expected. Good hop head session beer.

unable to rate appearance (drank in dark theater) but i’ll give it the benefit of the doubt since the other BR’s did so well. pretty good IPA aroma, pretty typical. flavor was a bit muted, very syruppy and sweet, but not enough to hurt it. an interesting variation on the style after the exact opposite Ruination IIPA.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
easily one of my top 5 ipa’s. love this in the deuce deuce and on tap. floral hop aroma with an incredible balance of typical west coast hops with a nice malty bite. very citrusy. nice with a black and tan, but better by itself. guiness sucks. haha viva cinco!

Hazy golden color with small creamy head. Nice aroma, with some fruity hops and some cheesy yeast. Smooth mouthfeel, malt flavor, light biscuity impression; it has a powerful hopping, providing extreme bitterness, resins and some fruitiness.
A solid IPA, but not very fresh character.

Hazy amber color; creamy head, nice lace. Nice fruity aroma (apricots). Malty taste, medium strength, with a good fruity aromatic hopping. One American IPA like many others, that is: I like it.

Large, linguring head. Nice hops aroma. One of my favorite IPAs, though I am not generally a fan.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Large head, cloudy yellow colour. Citrus hop nose, mediuem body with only a hint of maltiness. Not overly bitter, not overly big either.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Blistering citrus rind nose. Copper colored. Medium nectar. Big froth that takes it’s time to dissipate. Ample residual effers. This is IPA madness with hints on the grapefruit side. Huge lime rind, sickening. I spotted some corriander-esque flavors on the finish. This is one huge hop. They say only 69 IBUs, my ass, seems like 1000. Felt like I was swallowing tiny glass shards.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange with tons of floaties thanks to gputty’s crappy pour. Big, rocky white head. Citrusy sour orange nose, with some underlying pine notes. Lovely lace rings. Smooth, slightly syrupy body. Medium bitter finish, with a touch of sticky grapefruit. I like it, but I feel it is slightly overrated.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From bomber thanks to Immy. Pours a light orange with lots of suspended yeast (my fault) and a cloudy white head. Good lacing. Big citrus, some sourness and floral make a very appealing nose. Flavor is smooth for an IPA with nice citrus, lemony notes as well as following the nose. Nice.
