4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Appearance is hazy orange-yellow color with moderate head and little lacing. I cross-tasted vs. Hop Devil yesterday and S.N. Torpedo tonight. It has more hop aroma than either. More of citrus vs. Torpedo’s rosemary character. Taste is bitter and fruity. The label is so strange for such a great beer! It’s probably my favorite IPA. Highly recommended by me!

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)

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours from the bottle with a reddish copper color and a light tan head that stays with the beer nicely. The aroma is hops, the first flavor across the lips is hops, the finish is hops. But I do not feel like I’ve been smacked in the face with branch of hops. The malts and carbination are there, but just enough to make overall experience very enjoyable.

A 6 pack purchased at From the Vine. This is a spectacular IPA. Citrus and hops rise out of glass as soon as you start to pour. I taste orange and pine. A great example of the styoe.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle - pours a slightly hazy light orange with minimal head that leaves a little bit of lacing - Citrus hops in the aroma and taste - At 7% abv the alcohol is hidden very well and this beer goes down dangerously smooth with a slight bitterness on the palate - As of 11-9-09 the commercial description here says "this beer doesn’t have Bells in front of the name by explicit request from the brewer" - well if I was the brewer I would definitely put my name in front of this beer as it is delicious and easy to drink - Mega kudos to the brewer!

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
A really well done ale. Pours a nice resilient orange with a smooth creme head. Lively carbonation makes this beer look fantastic and mouthfeel is near perfect. Aroma of citrus and hops. Very well balanced taste with some light hints of fruits and a lovely malt, countered by a nice hoppy finish. Awesome beer!

Very subtle, not harsh aroma. Amazingly smooth and crisp. One of my favorite IPAs thus far.
