3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pour is fairly clear copper with a modest fine bubbled off white head in this glass. The nose is tropical fruit, caramel, and biscuits really. The flavor profile has a nice balance of malt and hop profile. The tropical notes come through heavier here, with more caramel and bread. Fruit esters come through. Juicy hop resins are present, but its all a bit subdued.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014 Bottle @ home, courtesy of OCBeerSociety. Thanks Ron! Dark golden, orange appearance with a big white head and nice lacing. Big citrus fruity (mango, passionfruit, grapefruit), smarties, a bit organic, a touch resiny hoppy aroma. Big grapefruit creamy, mango/passionfruit, citrusy flavor, a bit organic, fairly bitter hoppy, yet deliciously sweet IPA. This babyís a winner. (4.3)
Bottle from Wilburís that was distributed here during GABF. Pretty tasty but nowhere on the same level as I thought last time. (3.8)

Floral hops accompanied by some grassy/earthy aromas. Relatively deep golden in color with a very thin foam on the top. Taste is a good blend between fruitiness and earthy hops. Very lightly carbonated with a lingering spicey bitterness. Overall, this is a solid IPA. Good hop flavoring with light grapefruit undertones. Iíd give this an A rating.

I didnít love this one...too heavy in the body for me. Has a good bitter piney hop nose and body but it drinks very heavy and the finish holds too much. Not dry or crisp enough for what I like in an IPA.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle. Comes out of the bottle with a clear orangey color and a nice white head that quickly dissipates, but leaves some nice lacing. It has the aroma of hops, but I donít taste them on the front end. There is a taste of grapefruit at first, subsequently joined by hoppiness and a lengthy backflavor.

12oz bottle. Aroma of floral and citrusy hops with a little caramel and light fruit. Flavor the same with a lot of hops. Average texture. A pretty good IPA.
