3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at the brewpub. Pours translucent amber with a creamy beige head. Lots of citrus in the aroma. Flavor is mixed citrus resin over decent mildly roasty caramel. Finishes not exactly dry,, but pretty hoppy and bitter. Nice drink.

slightly sweeter and less bitter than most IPAs. Smooth and easy drinking, good but not quite as assertive as hoped.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy orange gold color with a quirky dissipating off-white head. Lacing coats the glass. The bouquet is phenomenal. Dried sweet fruit, grapefruit, and mown grass. The flavor is a little less bold than the bouquet, but much the same as what is picked up in the olfactory. In fact, the flavor was a little disappointing after having first gotten a whiff of the wonderful bouquet. Mouthfeel is decent, but a little flattened. All in all, a very good DIPA, but I’ve had so many ridiculously good DIPAs recently that it doesn’t rank well.

Very drinkable, albeit pretty strong in alcohol. I had this at the pub in Napa. My senses might have been dulled by the Tantric IPA that preceded it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a very good double ipa very hoppy but not to bitter. I like bitter ipa but the floral flavors are what bring me back to ipa over and over. Had on draft a Joes started out with a small white head and a full amber to orange color. The aroma was just ok a touch muted. What it was missing in aroma it made up in flavor full body,rich and very floral. Over great beer.

Tap at the brewpub in Napa. This one is a keeper. Nice rich golden pour with a great clingy white head. Big citrus with a hint of pine on the aroma. Moderate palate. Taste is citrus hops, a touch of caramel malt, and a touch of pine hops. Very nice.

I had this on tap at the brewpub in downtown Napa. I thought it was a nicely balanced IPA, with some good citrus notes.
