4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours out a cloudy dark golden color. The bottle has a lot of sediment which I dredged some up into my glass. The smell is very citric, with pine, grapefruit, tangerine and even some vague vanilla aromas. Wow the taste is sharply bitter, with some lemon zest, pine, grapefruit and perhaps some orange tastes. Really a full and rich tasting IPA. I'm glad I finally tried this, this one is a stand out from a lot of IPAs on the shelf.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A malty pine aroma. Hazy burnt orange color. Thin off-white head. Bold bitter bite to start. Pine malt taste. Faint sweet note in the back of the palate. Dry to the finish. Has a good balance hop bitterness and malt so that neither is overwhelming. Solid IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Faint piney aroma with a note of citrus. Almost brown in color, deep amber, huge tan head that hangs for a while. Rich malt up front. Some sweet caramel. Citrus is next. Very sweet, with hints of orange. Bitterness seeps in, fairly mild, with notes of citrus throughout. Finish intensifies till the end. Lingers a bit. Rich mouth feel for an ipa. Not bad.

Just a good, middle of the road IPA. Some malty sweetness balanced by moderate amounts of hops. Tried it many times, but it works.
