Out of the bottle this is great but from a tap absolutely tremendous in my opinion. One of my favorite beers. Really nice blend of hops, malt, pine flavors, and citrus/grapefruit. Iím amazed by the alcohol level because it doesnít show until after consumption.

Poured from bottle into pint glass: Pours golden with a hint of red, frothy white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is a hoppy explosion. Lots of resin, grapefruit, and other tropical fruits. Taste is a bit sweet, but with lots of citrus and pine hops to balance it out. Medium body, a bit sticky, pretty nice IPA. Iíd love to try a fresher bottle / on tap.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2014 edition. Reviewed from memory, drank last winter. Poured semi clear red brown with 1 finger head. Nose is sweet malty fruit, caramel, lemon, pine. Taste is more malt, piney, caramel, fruit. Bitter and sweet finish. Heavy on the malt, heavy on the sweetness. Not as hoppy as expected. This is what all the fuss is about?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355 ml (12 fl oz) bottle at home. Bottled at 21/01/2014. Orange hazy color with nice white head. Aroma is light hoppy, grass and floral notes with grapefruit, malty and alcoholic. Sweet malty taste that becomes bitter and finishes also bitter and alcoholic. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. I was expecting more, probably I have to find a more fresh bottle.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear sparkling golden orange with a fair amount of head and sticky lacing. Aroma is overpowering and inviting: intense hops, pine and floral citrus. Flavor is massive and overwhelming: Notes of grapefruit intensity, pine, honey, and an overall lingering bitterness that makes this beer jump out of the glass into my mouth. Fresh quenching finish that lingers on the palate. Alcohol is very well hidden. One of my favorites.
From notes 2/16/14.

Incredibly smooth for the style and ABV. This one should be consumed carefully so as to not end up face down on the floor. Citrus and honey, decent head. Smooth mouth feel. Try it if you can find it!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Possibly the most balanced 10% IPA out there. Hops are big but the bite of this brew is little. Drinks remarkably easy and yet is still full flavored. Not the best IPA available but damn close
