Bottle at the airport. Pours a clear copper color with a lacing white head. Nice, hoppy aroma with a bitter grapefruit finish. Amazing, tart, hoppy taste. Very smooth with a little tangy fruit in there. A really good IPA.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Flavors arenít as deep as some of my favorite IPAs and double IPAs but still really nice citrus/grapefruit, pine, and hops. In addition, some sweetness blended in along with some bitterness on the finish which I really like. Even with an ABV 6.2 one of my favorite session IPAs because itís somewhat easy drinking in my opinion.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Johnís Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Clear amber brown, heavy tan head cover, a curtain of lace. Aroma is an appealing citrus and malt. Taste is full-bodied toffee malt that grows in the palate, finally allowing satisfying citrus hops to wash through on the swallow. But,...when the "smoke" clears, there is the malt, lingering nicely. Good stuff.

Bottle from pizza port. Loved jackls description of "tired" could agree more lots of malt and syrup. Tastes like it has been sitting around for too long even though the can indicates itís fairly fresh. Only ok, wouldnít drink again.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Guess Who? Bentonville. Strong caramel malt. Hot cantaloupe. Cotton candy. Flavor is slightly tangy grain, sickly apple. Strange. Strong malt character. Tastes pretty tired. Medium body, syrupy. Not great.

3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Craig MT. Translucent copper amber with caramel head. Pine fruit and citrus hops on the nose. A colorful taste with a strong hoppy pine grapefruit rind finish. Similar or the NW style, just a little more wild, almost seems like Sage in the initial bite. I like it!
