4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Hazy, burnt orange with a medium white head. Fruity hops dominate the nose. Tons of rich fruit flavors, some orange, grapefruit, and a tough of bitter orange peel. Finishes warm and boozy, a bit of tangerine? Lingers too long, but otherwise an amazingly good IPA.

Taster at the brewpub. Orange c hop aroma. Lots of bubble gum amarillo hops in the flavor. Nice body. slight caramel malt with a grapefruit bitter finish. Runs the gamut of some of my favorite hop flavors.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Tadgís. Very nice citrus nose--clean and fresh with lots of grapefruit and tropical fruits. Soft, fluffy mouth. Sweet flavor with mango, passionfruit, grapefruit. Only mildly bitter at first, then it kicks in a bit more later. Very drinkable with great aroma but too thick and syrupy so it becomes boring.

I was pleasantly surprised with this beer. Having had it several times over the past few years, Iíve noticed a big improvement recently. It pours a bright golden orange with a thick head with excellent retention. The floral and citrus hop aromas are inviting and lead to a clean citrus hop bitterness thatís nicely balanced by a soft malt character. This beer finishes crisp and dry, much like any good IPA from San Diego.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Amber orange pour, small white head. Crisp floral and citrus hop aroma. Tastes lightly sweet and caramelly but isnít heavy on malts. Thereís a sharp hit of floral and citurs hops with a touch of spice and a cedary resin finish. Paired great with pizza.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured slightly hazy medium golden with a short, dense cap of whitish head. The aroma picked up fresh, bright pine and peppery notes over a nondescript pale base.. warmth brought out juicy, exotic citrus fruits.. not bad. The flavor found pale and biscuity malts at the core.. very sharp and bitter around with notes of pine, peppery alcohol, and oxidation.. spicy and nearly unpleasant on the finish. Medium-bodied and sharp on the palate.. I didnít like how this came together.

Pours orange copper with a foamy off-white head and a toffee aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with serious piny hop bitterness. A good IPA.

Bottle. A descent IPA. Not very complex in the flavors. Its mostly resinous, but definitely not the worst IPA I have had. Sorry I don;t have more thorough notes... Iíve become a bit lazy these days. CHEERS!
