1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This beer was abysmal. The intro appearance and aroma werenít bad but the taste was awful. It reminded me of some early homebrew IPA attempts. A little too sweet along with the piney hops, with a slight off flavor. Not sure if it was the choice of hops or a bad batch. Would not buy again.

Tap at The Woodlands,Shenendoah location. Like a boss. Pours a weak tea amber with a nose of coppery hops and grapefruit. Flavor is an assertive blend of hops and grapefruit. Tingly mouthfeel. Tastes great but the other components are lacking.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a draft into an imperial pint glass at BJís Restaurant and Brewery in Culver City, Calif. About a finger of head when I got it. Color was honey golden pale. Fluffy white lacing on the top. Really good looking film - white, soapy and foamy - that lasted throughout the pour.
Smelled citrus hops, a mixture of tangerine and lemon. Wet, caramel malts as well.
Initially the taste was worse than the smell. More grainy and rough. Caramel malts mixed with citrus hops. Bitter finish in the tongue after. Got used to it more later. A very poor manís Double Jack.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish.
I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. I would definitely try it again if itís in the BJís near my place.

Pours a light copper color. Aroma is slightly floral with a hoppy nose. Bitter taste, which dissipates as you drink it. This beer is clean, very light for an IPA, overall a tasty IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light copper pour - fairly sweet throughout, but at least it is a clean sweetness of lightly caramelized sugars that does not interfere with the hop character, which is the star of the show here - hops are lightly earthy, with fairly strong notes of pine and bright citric character that linger long into the finish - a bit sweet for me, but a solid IPA.

Multiple hops were used brewing this beer and you can taste that. Very bitter but still in a very drinkable way. Smooth with good CO2 content, you taste hops thats all. (Houston 201205)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Elk Grove location. Dark amber / copper color with little white head, but great lacing down the glass. Aroma is resinous and floral hops. Flavor has some light caramel sweetness with good resinous hop notes. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall I was impressed with this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark gold with a small head that settles into a thin cap, but leaves good lace. Nice sticky aroma of floral resin, a touch of pine, and perhaps some lemon and/or orange. Flavor is nice and full and just as hoppy as any IPA fan can ask for. Starts nice and grapefruity with a stern bitterness, melting into a resiny pine and floral bitterness, ending floral and sticky. The maltiness is sweet and caramelly, but quiet. Quiet enough to let the hops be the star, but present enough to balance. Quite the understated IPA. Full and hoppy.
