3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Beer Revolution. Orange pour with a white head. Really a nice orange, tangerine, and grapefruit aroma. Lots of resin and pine notes, a bit of caramel malt. Really bitter flavor. Light malt/caramel sweetness. Pretty solid orange, tangerine, and grapefruit notes. Tons of pine. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Hazy orange-amber beer with a low white head. Big tangerine aroma. Tangerine, grapefruit, and summer fruit flavor with low pine backing and a good malt backbone.
This beer was brewed with all Summit hops as part of an experiment with 16 breweries in the Bay Area. In comparison, this one has a bit of a harsher taste than most I tried. Still, very enjoyable.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2006 Draft at the brew pub. Other than the fact that itís an Imperial IPA, I donít know much about this beer. The pour is an apricot color and very murky with a heavy white lacing. Big, resinous grapefruit aroma with notes of oranges and pine. There is a bit of malt in the aroma as well. The flavor is extremely bitter with hop flavors characterized by grapefruit, lemon and pine. Just enough sweet maltiness to provide a nice balance but the beer in general is very hop forward. Dry bitter finish with a slight hint of honey.

On tap. Clear bright yellow with a fluffy white head. Sweet citrus candy aroma. Tastes of candied lemon peel, citrus hops, and an earthy lightly herbal bitter bite to the finish. Nice creamy palate. Very well done.
