4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Honestly, this is one of the best IPAs that I have had in a while... I just canít believe that I didnít buy it when I first saw it. It has a wonderfully strong hop character with some citrus that is balanced by a perfect amount of malts. I havenít had the chance to pour it in a glass yet but it produces a nice bit of head after just popping the bottle :)

Poured with a thin white head, decent lacing, over a hazy yellow-amber body. Aroma is floral and earthy hops over a crackerlike malt backbone. Flavor is a fantastic balance of earthy hops and crackerlike malt, with a lingering earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Body is medium-plus, with a velvety soft carbonation. Alcohol is exceptionally well-hidden. Easily one of my favorita American Pale Ales.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is one of my all around favorite IPAs, pours a nice dark gold with a white head. Smells floral, citrusy and piny. This ipa tastes amazing, perfectly balanced in my opinion. Looking forward to this being in New York State any day now, been waiting for the day for a while and will be very happy to be enjoying this ipa year round.

it kind of tastes like a mix between fruity pebbles with a little bit of cocoa pebbles mixed, the key is the hops. Quality, quality brew.

Sweet, floral, citusy hop aroma... Golden yellow color with a slight haze.. Good toasty maltiness at first quickly overtaken by the citrusy/hoppy flavor and bitterness. There is a lingering toastiness and bitterness. Medium low body with high carb. Overall this is one of my favorite IPAs to drink. I canít get enough of this beer. It is also one of the beers I continue to try and clone in my homebrewing...

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
It pours out clean and clear (if poured carefully) with an agressive and sticky bone head. Color is reminiscent of a sunset or the flesh of a peach. The lacing sticks all the way down.
Oh, the nose on this beer. Itís home-made shortcake, glazed with citrusey pulp, vanilla and orchid petals. Hoppy to the extreme but showing a wonderfully sweet malt base.
Itís full, but not fat or bloated in the mouth. Perfectly carbonated, keeping it light, but not thin... just right. When it hits your tounge, itís citrus bitter, rolling directly into sweet shortbread and vanilla malts. Plenty of fruit character shows, with some apricot and other fleshy stone fruits. The hop flavor doesnít back off though, itís there, and very strong, a lucious mix of citrus fruits, grapefruit, satsumas (mmmm) and the lovely spring like flavor of flower petals. All of this is rolled up into an ellegant dance of malt and hops... perfection. Seriously.

The smell alone is reason enough to buy this IPA. The floral aromas are amazing and the taste backs it up. Very hoppy, but I feel still balanced. Probably my favorite IPA out there right now. With the head stuck around longer, thatís the only points Iím taking away.

As far as an IPA is concerned I was not impressed overall. I went into this beer with alot of hype and it drastically failed to live up. At best this is a decent session beer.

If you love IPAís then dig in!!!!
Enough hops to tame the beast inside you. Lovely slightly cloudly amberish color. Hops lingers even 30 mins after consumed. Iím not even a huge IPA fan, and I could appretiate this robust brew.

One of the best Bellís creations. Superbly well balanced. Add some Guiness to it for a Black-Heart. If you are hesitating to pick this up at the store: smack yourself. One smell and youíll be sold.
