4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dette må være klasseeksemplet på en god, amerikansk IPA. Den er smuk gul og let tåget, med et formbart,. tæt skum. Duften skriger af fersken og appelsiner, ligesom der også er masser af citrus. Smagen læner sig meget op ad duften, kombineret med en god portion maltsødme og et kraftigt bittert efterspil. Fylden er behagelig og cremet, men ikke så meget at øllens friskhed forgår. Alt i alt en virkelig god IPA, som dog ikke er nyskabende.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2012 Tap. Pours clear amber with a small off-white creamy head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is of grapefruit and flowers, with a bit of malt and cat urine. Taste is grapefruit, floral, pine with a bitter finish. No sign of the ABV in the taste. Very creamy and full bodied in the mouth.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap. Pours a clear, fairly light golden amber with a small white head that settles to a ring and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The aroma is pine, caramel, butter, and some light floral notes. The initial taste is pine and dank hops with some caramel. The finish has a bit of bitterness and lots of buttered popcorn. Much more diacetyl in the palate than the nose. Medium-heavy body. Medium carbonation. This was not very enjoyable. If there was any more diacetyl it would have been undrinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big IPA with a deep amber color in the glass with a good size head. It has a big pine aroma with some grapefruit. Taste is all bitterness. It has some earth notes with some leaves. I was hoping for a little more on the flavor.
