This is one of my favorite beers! I think it is one of the most balanced of the tasty IPAs on the market!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. For rating number 2,300 I picked one that has received many high ratings before this one. The pour is a cloudy pale yellow with a short-lived white head and a touch of lacing. What strikes me as interesting about the aroma is this sort of melted caramel mingling with the earthy, grassy hops. The body is a bit better than medium. The taste is nicely balanced with a toasted caramel beginning and a mellower but notable grassy hop finish. I can see why this gets such high ratings.

A good classic IPA. Classic bitter hops.
A nice amber color with a fairly good-sized white head,
Lots of bitter on the palette with a nice long finish.
A good enjoyable IPA,

Pours a nice cloudy orange with chunky foam. Taste is creamy like cream soda with spices, very enjoyable. Trixie and chim chim would be proud. The bomber was $5 ironically. Go speed racer go!

Very well balanced floral, pine, and citrus IPA. Smooth drinking with light head/sediment. Quenched my IPA thirst and delivered a subtle hop bitterness. IMO great and will return to my beer cooler again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355mL bottle from Beer Cartel
Pale golden body, holds a dense head.
Big smack of hops on the nose; pine, wood sap, leafy herbs, grass, citrus, unripe melon & tropical fruits. A touch of toasty malt in the works too.
Tremendously drinkable - smooth, juicy, chewy palate, moderate carbonation - feels like an APA with IPA grunt.
Offers even more on the palate - toasty, biscuity malt, a touch of caramel even, then BAM lots of hops - spicy, woody, citrusy, orange sherbert, musk stick, candied melon, other odd metaphors... Good lingering, woody sort of bitterness, but not overbearing or aggressive.
Really well made stuff. Not the most crazyily hoppy thing out there, but just a class act.
