3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy, dark orange color with a finger length off white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Smells of grapefruit, tons of pine, lemon, floral notes, little carmel or toffee. Dry smell. Taste starts with tons of grapefruit and pine, along with some lemon. Then mellows out a tad with a little sweetness and some biscutiness from the malt. However, the finish presents an abrasive bitterness, along with pine, lots more grapefruit, and some lemon and floral as well. Sort of like a blood orange flavor. Maybe a trace of carmel, but very dry finish. Medium bodied, but on the heavier side. Mouthfeel is very nice: creaminess with good carbonation. This IPA will definitely satisfy a "hophead." One of many great offerings from Dark Horse.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good IPA. Had at the brewery and was not disappointed. Good mix of hops give this a taste that falls between the citrus and pine zone.

Piney grass and honeycomb aroma, not strong. Murky ochre, medium yellow head. Caramel and pine, grass, vague grapefruit. Full body easy carbonation, chewy. Nice balance, a little stale. I bet Iíd love this fresh at the brewery.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a murky copper color with a large foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Nice strong aroma of typical IPA hops... Very bitter taste, though, and not the pleasant hop bitterness some IPAís offer, either. Under the bitterness is some citrus. Itís got many of the buzzword tastes for the style, but they donít really mesh, resulting a peculiar "off" quality for me.
