On tap @ Breakside. Clear golden pour with a white head. Has a bit of a fruit salad nose to it with some pineapple, orange, grapefruit, and peach. Definitely a bit of pine, some bread, and grass. Big orange juice flavor to it. Some bitter pine and citrus rind, zesty grapefruit, and a hint of sweet melon. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottel hazy pale soft golden with a full white head. Mild hoppy aroma of melons and some citrus. Plenty bitter in the flavor but not the sharp fresh hop notes. More melon and light woody biter.

I get a lot more malt from the nose than I anticipated cut with a little orange. In the mouth there is plenty of dry grapefruit a little sticky caramel and a little onion? It’s good. Not worthy of all the praise I hear it given.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, off white head, with some lacing, over a clear light gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is heavy grapefruit, light pine, floral notes from the hops, light toasted malts, balance to the hops, no esters......taste is light cereal malts, slightly sweet, hints of sulfer, with heavy grapefruit, pine, resin from the hops, finishing with a lingering moderate bitter finish, balance to the hops.....mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky, light alcohol, foamy carbonation. This is a typical American IPA, dominated by American hops in both aroma and flavor. The malt back bone is a bit light in complexity, but the dominant hops make for a clean, refreshing beer. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

Bottle. Super tropical with restrained bitterness and reasonable alcohol. Super punchy hop flavor. Wish I had a lot more of this!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light orange, with thick slow fading head, lots of lacing. Floral, pine, and citrus nose. Taste follows with orange citrus as well. Exactly what I want and expect from an IPA. Will get more of this-classic.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brassy bronze, ok head. Leafy, grapefruity, light summer mush undertones and touch of muted sweetness. The body is a mildly sweet muskyness, muted leaf, some heavyness, like the humidity before a summer storm breaks. Complex, yet reserved. Quite enjoyable and hoppy with a bready backbone. Look forward to meeting this one again.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of mango, pineapple, tropical fruit, orange, lemon, some bread, grass. Taste was a mix of orange juice, grapefruit, some nice tropical fruit, pineapple, some slight bread, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Very nice.
