3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle pour of hazy yellow gold with a fluffy thick off white head. Aroma of big pine and grapefruit with some yeasty bread undertone Taste of same smooth balance for both grassy and bright citrusy hops with notes of grapefruit and a slight sweetness malt that cuts some if the bitter. Med to light body with a butter finish that fades quickly. Over all a very fresh tasting and balanced IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BB 07/15/14. 355ml bottle. Hazed gold/range pour. Smell is grapefruit pith, mineral water, and slight bready malt. Flavor is not super bitter but it is a clean bitterness. Herbal and citrus rind hop characteristics are very smooth and combine with the malt. The brewer might want to reconsider its BB date but other than that good base.

This is truly one of my favorite beers. Goes well on the deck in the summer or standing with friends in the kitchen in the winter. Absolute stunner in the glass as it grabs light and seems to glow a copper/orange from within. The head leaves a delicate lacing. Hoppy, effervescent and very bright with citrus tones. I’ve had it both from the bottle and the tap and it is equally pleasing from either source. Just make sure the temperature is correct (cold as possible).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was somewhat hazy yet also slightly clear copper/orange body with a one finger white foamy that once it starts to die a super nice foamy lacing appears to grace the sides of the glass.
The smell had subdued hops through some piney tones, slight maltiness comes out as the beer warms.
The taste is sweet and smooth through the previously mentioned flavors, bittersweet aftertaste and finish.
The palate is light, sessionable, carbonation is good for the style and for me.
Overall, Id say mostly good for the style and I’m super glad I came back to this as the first time I had it I thought it was under carbonated and bland - perhaps a bad batch, but now that I’m having it a bit fresher - so much better and so willing to come back to this, solid AIPA.

My wife says it looks like a sunrise - I say copper/orange - she drinks it and sticks her tongue out - I know it's going to be good then - aroma is citrus and pine, taste is piney hops, I like it.

The least interesting of the IPAs I had tonight. This one pours blonde with decent head and lacing. Some mild citrus, but mostly just generic hops and malt. Light bitterness. Tap at Rustico.
