Medium amber colored brew with a fruity-floral aroma. Very fresh tasting and quite drinkable. I didnít even notice the 7.7. Well done!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle (courtesy of BrewerDan) into a standard pint glass. Poured a cloudy light copper color with a large off-white head which settled slowly and left a nice amount of lacing. Nose was citrus (grapefruit, apricot, pineapple and orange) with some floral notes. Taste had hints of caramel, brown sugar, and citrus but was pretty slanted toward dry and bitter. There was an odd musty flavor that I didnít care for. Body is medium, resinous and sticky. Alcohol is well hidden. I guess my previous encounter with Boy King set too high a standard but, for whatever the reason, this was a disappointment. I will try it again since there is always a chance I got a bad bottle but...I wonít go out of my way for it.

7/23/10. Big thanks to darn1207 for sharing! Nice fresh hop aroma that I really dig. The flavor is maltier and a bit sweet, but there is some nice tropical fruity hops in there as well. Nice!

Bottle from Growlers on HHI. Pours clear orange with golden hues, frothy, off white head leaving good lacing. Nose is piny and grassy hops with some resiny notes and a touch of grapefruit. Sweet caramel up front with a good dose of bitter, dry and clinging, mildly resiny hops, grass, pine, lemon, some pepper. Another solid IPA from the SE.

hazy golden pour
aroma and flavors, lots of good pine hops, grainy and malty, overall, profile keeps a mild spicy hop mouthfeel with a good malty balance balancing most of the hop bitterness.
Pretty straightforward but it works, a solid IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of Blazer06. Pours copper with thin light tan head. The aroma is crisp fresh spicy to grapefruit to pine hops with subtle malt sweetness going on in the background. The taste is similar with crisp to mildly potent spicy to pine to grapefruit to orange peel like hoppiness. It slowly becomes more and more bitter but overall only reaching a moderate level of hop bitterness.

Bottle shared with my son, Keith. Pour produced a semi-translucent light amber body with thick off-white head. Sweet malts with tons of hops. Very pleasant flowery, hoppy aroma and flavor that lingers long after swallowing. Very good IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to the Tampa Crew for this one. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is a bit of malt with piney fresh hops and floral notes. Flavor is similar: a good bit of caramel topped with fresh hops- floral and piney. Very nice beer with a light to medium body that lingers with fresh hops. Nice IPA.
