4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very cloudy golden color with a tall foamy heady that would do a Duvel proud. The underlying natural carbonation is steady and delicate. The aroma is fresh hops with pine resin and hay. The taste is that of pine resin and pepper like hop heat tempered with the flavors of mandarin orange, caramel malt, and the gritty, earthy yeast. The beer is creamy smooth like a stick of butter melting on your tongue. This is a very good and well balanced IPA that lacks a lot of complexity, but turns that into a strength rather than a weakness.

Hazy amber with tiny suspended particles. A good sandy head. The aroma starts off a ragged tangle of citric centennials. The hops mellow as the beer warms, letting a soft fruitiness through in the aroma and an off dry maltiness through in the flavor.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A great IPA! Pours an orangey-copper with a thick, pillowy head that lasts and leaves very well defined lace on the glass. Aroma is very citrusy, piney, and hoppy. F;avor is very hoppy, though a great toasted malt flavor comes along to mellow things out to a bitter grassy finish. Fantastic!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. Pours yellow clear with big head that fades before you know it. Nice hops and somewhat rich malts (nutty flavor). Finish is simple with little to no aftertaste. Very easy drinkable beer malts does not over power this above avg beer. And sweetness is very low key(which i like)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Yellow with a cloud of yeast. Head starts big and fades. Big hoppy aroma. Nice hoppy flavor. Like Stone, but with less malt, so not quite as good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slight cloudy yellow orange color, medium sized white head. Citrusy hops in the aroma, pine resin, sharp, clean, fresh. Flavor is creamy, hoppy, bitter, good but nothing too interesting. A nice, simple IPA. Nothing fancy, but soild.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours golden with a white fluffy head. The lace lasts to the end of the glass. Hop aroma hit me as soon as I opened the bottle. A balanced IPA, neither the malt or the hops over-power each other.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a off yellow with a big fluffy head. The first thing you notice is the hop aroma. I can smell it in the bottle before I ever pour it. Flavor is where the beer loses its points. Sure the hops are in there you can smell them but I canít really taste them. Average IPA at best. This brew actually smells better than it tastes.
