4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Orange, rust colored pour. Nice thick white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, flowers and some faint pine, with even a hint of malt. Great hoppy-citrus taste with a bitter finish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A grapefruity aroma with a touch of evergreen. An orangish pour with the prominate guey lacing. A jump out there hops flavor with a very nice bitter. A malt bill that levels this beer out to a very smooth flavor. Just a slightly thin palate and o so fizzy carbonation that kept this beer from being even better. A thin palate is the only thing that keeps this from being soo much better. Still a damn fine beer.

This golden orange IPA has a 2" rockey white head which stands up. An impressive blend of aromatic hops, citrus overtones and hints of pine this is a beer that starts out strong and finishes pretty true to deliver a well balanced IPA. Very drinkable and a real palate teaser. One of the best blends of IPA out there and worthy for any red blooded Muskie fisherman.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Oooooohhh that’s so pretty. Dark copper, perfectly dark copper. Moderate head and nice bubbly look. So pretty. I think I smell pine through my allergies. Aggressive but balanced bitterness. Alittle salty but very nice. It feels somewhat fuller than normal. Not extremely carbonated but enough to give it some personality. This is a truly great beer.

Bright orange in color with big, thick, long-lasting head. I didn’t get the strong aroma most mention- thought it was rather faint. Flavor was very citric and hoppy. Too much grapefruit.

Poured from a 12oz bottle a straw yellow with a generous white head. Aroma was of wonderful citrus and floral hops and a sweet malt lurking in the back. Flavor was just wonderful a nice citrus hop a touch of grapefruit peel and just a hint of malt.

Bottle, poured light amber orange, white head, scent of flowers, sweet malt, caramel, citrus, little pineapple, whiff of vanilla, taste of malt, pine needles, light grapefruit, lots of lacing on the glass, hop bite on the tongue, nice mouthfeel, when drinking this ale, I feel as though I am going up and down a roller coaster of hops, really is a wonderful drink, this ale never seems to dissappoint me, like a child’s Christmas Morning in a glass.

Probably my favorite single IPA. Flowery, pineapple aroma. Similar flavors and a piney, clean aftertaste that lingers for minutes. Just terrific!
