3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Total Wine-McLean, 1/30/13
Aroma: The nose has some sweet grapefruit, orange, some herbal notes, and a bit of tea
Appearance: Pours a hazed dark orange color with a thick frothy of white head and fairly heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is a little sweet, it has bready and herbal flavors, and a medium dry bitterness
Palate: The body medium, it has a fairly creamy feel, a bit of stickiness, and a mid-dry finish
This is a pretty solid IPA, it is not the best in the style, but it is more than adequate. I would certainly drink this one again. Thereís some pretty good stuff going on here, and plus, it is (partially) for a good cause!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap: overcast golden color with tangerine-like edges; translucent & full of yeasty haze. A thin, swampy film covers the beer in place of an actual head. Aroma has strong notes of both pine & orange. Various citric-like peel notes with some pine needles & pungent hop oils. Nothing spectacular, but balanced fairly well. Taste is strong orange; juicy & sweet. Oily, resinous hops with some pine. Faint pale malt, bittersweet finish. A good & balanced beer, but not stand-out enough to warrant many repurchases.

Bottle from Mariís. Pours hazy orange with a large white head that has good retention, decent lacing. The aroma is mostly citrus notes and is more on the orange than grapefruit side.. maybe a touch of apricot. There are minor floral notes. The taste has a good bit of mango, very light bitterness, and a slightly chalky finish. OK but enjoyable.
