4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
on tap at my local spot, poured into a pint glass
a: light carmel/amber color. nice sticky 1/2" head with good retention. Reduzes nicely into lacing. Lacing rings the glass with each gulp.
s: grapefruit, bitter orange, caramel
t: nice caramel malt backbone gives way to cutting citrus bitterness boasting with grapefruit, orange and slight pine. Excellent!!!
m&d: medium bodied, drying mouth from the hops. Drinkable, but not really sessionable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the brewpub. Arrived a lightly hazed gold with a moderate linen white head that left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of grapefruit and mango. The flavor is pale malt that is quickly washed over by strong fruity grapefruit bitterness. Some pine present as well with a little bit of mango too. The bitterness lingers on the palate well beyond the swallow. Medium bodied.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Recovery: This one pours a clear, orangish golden color. There was a small white head and some lacing. It has a lighter nose. Grapefruit and pine, and maybe some spiciness. The taste is good. A smaller hop bite, mainly of grapefruit and pine. Some spice. Decent body. Just rates an OK.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Such a really solid IPA. One of my favorite, just a plus that is is brewed locally and I can get it on tap at almost any bar I go to. Full of hops, but also has a nice drinkability to it, I could drink it all night, and I have. Has a full citrusy burst, almost everything yo would expect from an IPA. West coasty style but most balanced. Highly recommend.

Draft at the brewery. Pours hazy copper gold with a thin beige head. Tastes very hoppy, dry, spiced, like grapefruit and pine. Low/medium body and carbonation. Smells like sweet orange, pine, and musk.

Orange pour,.nice head, thins quickly, good lacing. Aroma of resinous pine, some citrus, even floral. Flavor.followed.with spicey notes and earthy malt base. Mouthfeel is full, strong bitterness, quite a pleasant surprise of an ipa. Well done. Reminded me of flower power for whatever reason.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A clean tasty pale IPA with typical citrusy, piney and grassy hops. Very good.
How: Tap at Tap-NY 2012
The look: Clear golden-blond body, medium off-white head with good rating
In long: Nose is very citrusy (fresh grapefruits upfront but also other fresh citrus fruits) and green pine needles. Taste has a typical solid blond IPA malt backbone, clean and crisp with slightly toasted honeyed cereals. Well malted but still balanced towards the hops which feel more grassy in mouth on top of their citrusy and piney character noticeable in the aroma. Grassy spiciness in the after-taste. Good beer. And for once people when people were talking about the outrage at a beer festival it didn,t ‘necessarily’ involves me and my lack of pants.
