3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Got this in a great BIF package. Pours foggy golden with a quickly disappearing white foam and good lacing. Aroma is faint but mainly piney hop and mild malt aroma. Taste is a moderate hop bitterness, citrus with a little floral, pretty well balanced. Solid IPA but nothing earth shattering.

From notes: The color is golden auburn. The smell is good, but pretty much all pine. That fades a bit later and a grapefuit aroma comes in. The taste is good. Solid tasting ipa. I guess just given all the talk about this beer I would have thought it was better than this. It’s not terrible by any means. But, it certainly didn’t sweep me off my feet. The mouthfeel is okay. And, the drinkability is good.

Nice IPA. The aroma was my favorite aspect of this one. Nice citrusy sweet aroma. The taste was a little one dimensional with great lingering bitter finish. Could have used a bit more hop flavor maybe some additional dry hopping. Overall it was a nice beer though.

The organic IPA pours perfect blond orange with a nice white head. The aroma is awesome - sweet and citrus notes all over it. The flavor is orange and citrus, which then end with grapefruit on the palate. The body is really nice, medium and easy to drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
Poured into a snifter. Appearance is a nice orange color that is slightly cloudy. Nose is loaded with citrus hops. A good dose of orange. The taste scales back a bit on the hops with the flavor not quite leading to the strong profile that was in the nose. Feel is nice with a good level of bitterness. Overall, nice hop flavor and bitterness and a really great nose.

Bottle. Courtesy of CarolinaKevin on BA. Bottled on date of 03/08/11 Poured into a DFH snifter glass. The appearance is a cloudy apricot orange with a light tan 1 finger head. Decent lace as the head slowly settles. Danky citrus and tropical fruit notes in the nose of orange, grapefruit, and mango. Medium mouthfeel with a nice amount of carbonation. Sweet upfront with a building bitterness. The sweetness is a nice combo ot the tropical and citrus flavors mentioned in the nose. Some alcohol notes present as well. Ends with a lingering bitterness. Pretty decent overall and th bottle art is pretty sweet!
