3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours ruby with thick white head. Strong hoppy aroma of bubblegum and piney grapefruit: one of the best-smelling beers I’ve had. Tastes of much the same: maybe not quite at the level the aroma would suggest, but still pretty Damn good. Oily mouthfeel and lingering finish. A keeper.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Medium Orange with a white, lasting, lacy, tan head. Smells off sweet fruity tropical hops with fresh zesty citrus hops. Sweet caramel taste at fist with a citrus overtone and finishes with lots of fruity hops and a dry citrus ending. A cracking IPA that hits the spot. A fantastic beer. Medium to full crispy dry body.

The beer pours a slightly hazed golden orange with a quarter inch bubbly off-white head. The aroma is caramel, citrus, and notes of yeast and spices. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Flavour is mild grapefruit, notes of caramel, and grass. Quite good.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2014 From bottle to glass at The Sapphire Room. Little to no head on a beautiful orange/straw body, very minimal lacing on the glass. Noble hop aroma, pine, and orange zest on the nose. Slightly astringent on the palate with a heavier mouthfeel.

Bottle, provided by TylerDurden. Hazy bright yellow body, lively lasting white head. Terrific hop aromatics, lots of pine and citrus, with austere crackery pale malts, very low sweetness and long bitterness. Fantastic stuff!
