4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Mmmmmm. Prime example of a West Coast IPA. Beautiful piney and citrus hop nose with a touch of Belgian funk. Slick and creamy palate that is dangerously drinkable. A nice balance of bitterness and sweetness with a somewhat short finish. I really wish we could get this in Coastal Georgia.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours Opaque amber with a nice white head. Very little lacing. Aroma is complex- Part IPA, Part Belgium to be honest. Flavor is pleasant, but doesn’t match the aroma. Nice finish. Solid IPA

Bottle@Home. I really love the strong aroma: tangerine, grapefruit. Golden/amber, off-white head, good lace. Sweetish, fruity, light bitter start to very bitter in the finish, grapefruit. Very dry in the finish as well. Powerful and nice.

Sampled in a big bottle. A really aromatic imperial IPA. that was really smooth on the tongue. The mix of hops was very well done.

Draft at baggattaways in conshy, PA. All hops from the get go, very powerful. Careful, this is a strong one, too. Mouth feel is so so but the taste is great.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.33l bottle from myBrewerytap. Pours a clear golden-orange body with a nice heavy lacing dense just off-white head. Lots of fruity hops in this one. Actually smells a lot like a DIPA: heavy and thick on the malts and it has a nice leafy-hop character. A little bit of chocolate in this one as well. Quite delicious! My god that’s one smooth beer. Really comfortable in the mouth with strong yet balanced flavors of branchy-sweet-malts, leafy-hops, citrus, pine cones and berries. Lingering bitter finish that slowly slowly fades away and there is actually a hint of both licorice and flowers in the aftertaste. Really nice one this! Oh, it was a DIPA.. Well now, aint I an idiot.. 12.01.2012

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours darker orange to amber and sports a soapy froth head. Nose is dank fruits and resinous citrus and some pines. Flavor is fruits, citrus, and other hop complexities leaning on the resinous and fruity side. Medium body and bitter and lasting finish. Liked this one. classic SoCal
