Orange and golden with a slight glaze. Strong fruit smell like a grapefruit with a hint of cannabis from the hops. Great IPA slightly bitter with a smooth finish.

Beginner beer taster..donít know the fancy terms, compared to other local micro brewed beers, very good. Gritty McDuffs, a local favorite is a good comparasion in taste and quality. Expensive relative to other beers, about $9.00 per 6 pack.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber colors with a thin head and scents of fresh hhops. Mild acidic tone also noticed. Not as harsh as ArrogantBastard. Very acidic palate, but finishes quickly.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle pours amber. Not a very strong aroma in my example. Very light aroma of citrus, alcohol, and malt. Not much head retention, medium body. Flavor is nicely balanced between sweet toffee and medium hop bitterness. Bitter finish that lingers nicely. Nicely crafted IPA, but will barely make the cut for some hopheads.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Itís got a nice hoppy bite; at the bar it has some kind of hop subtitle added on to the lever. Neither as hoppy or complex as a hopdevil or a alpha king, but very pleasant nonetheless. A little sweet and floral, goes down very easy. Itíll wake you up if youíre tired at last call. Had a golden orange tinge and a small but lasting head. Would certainly drink it again if I wanted a hoppy IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great stuff sent to me by Kramer17801. This 12 oz bottle poured a little more golden that I had expected, but the flavor and nose were right on. Very hoppy and vanillay. Nice hop finish. Great stuff.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Super IPA. Sweet aroma with IPA-like hops. Clear golden amber color. Smooth drinking. Medium nody. Hoppy bitterness, but a little sweet with no lingering bitter aftertaste.
