4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 Pours a crystal clear golden color, with a pillowy antique white head. Large grapefruit and some sweet orange bouquet. Mouthfeel is a perfect balance of mild oiliness, wet, yielding to mildly powdery, and finishing with an appealing hop heat/carbonation combination. Lots of clean citrus in the flavor, sweetness, and a fun grapefruit bitterness taste at the finish. I’d consider this to be a perfect balance of hop and malt features. Best effort by Drake’s so far, in my opinion.

Draft - Huge fresh pine aroma. Clear gold with a thin rich head. An earthy, resinous, pine hops, and candy sweetness. Extremely light and sessionable. I expected more, but less is more sometimes. I could drink this all day.

Bottle - pours a hazy orange w/ white head. Get some oranges and tangerines in the nose. More citrus flavors in the taste plus some lemons and a bitter grapefruit finish. It's decent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Bine & Vine. Aroma Coma pours a slightly hazy golden-orange color with a moderate off-white head. Grassy hop aroma, with flowers, pine, and tropical fruit. Definitely a nice scent here, as the name suggests. There’s an assortment of juicy hop flavors to this thirst quenching IPA. Sweet passionfruit, oranges, and puckery grapefruit come to mind. Light pine mixes in, although less pronounced than the aroma, with very light doughy malt, and some grassy notes sneaking in there. This isn’t overly bitter for a West Coast IPA but there’s still enough firm bitterness to satisfy, and this has a nice dry finish. I like the drinkability; tasty and goes down easily with lighter malt and body. Good IPA.

Glass: Pint glass
From: Tiger! Tiger! In North Park (San Diego), Calif.
Purchased: Aug. 4, 2013
Consumed: Aug. 4, 2013
Poured a honey orange hazy color with two fingers of pillowy creamy white head when I got it. Good amount of foamy layered lacing on the sides of the glass all the way down. Good retention on the top.
Smelled a potent whiff of floral and citrus hops. Also grapefruit, tangerine, orange, orange rind, pine and lime.
Tasted similar to the smell, with more bitterness. Floral and citrus hops dominated. Also grapefruit, tangerine, orange, light pine, lime and caramel.
Light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, refreshing bitter finish.
Just another fantastic beer from Drake’s. Been meaning to try this and I’m so glad I did.
