3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2015 An excellent American IPA that is a good example of the style. Tends to the hoppy side of the malt-hop balance - but that is what is expected of the breed. A definite ’good drop’.

Bottle at BeerDeLuxe. Great hop salad. Aromas of grass, apricot, citrus, and liquorice. Taste has a sweet start, with bitterness taking over for a long finish. Palate is velvety, medium bodied, with a dry finish. Yellow, with a frothy head.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clean, golden orange in the glass.
The nose is not extremely intense. Citrus fruits like oranges, tangerines but also a good bitterness to it - pretty well balanced.
Taste is is more bitter than the nose. I don’t know how old this bottle is though. A pretty intense bitter aftertaste that lingers for quite a while - nice! Not a crazy beer, but definitely a good beer. No traces of the 7 %. Body is medium and nicely carponated.
In general, a very nice beer.

Delicious smell, very hoppy and sweet with strong citrus and hints of melon. Pours clear amber with a foamy white head that quickly dissipates. Taste is citrus and fades into a lingering resin aftertaste. Good fizzy mouthfeel.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Gold with an inch of white head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine, mandarin, pepper. A little watery, quite highly carbonated. Some stone fruit, but not much malt presence. Grapefruit, pine, herbs. A strange greasy pan note that’s not that heavy but isn’t very welcome. Dry with fairly strong bitterness. Nice hops (no doubt at least a little faded) but underneath is not good.
