3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is piny with tropical fruits - pineapple, mango, tangerine. Body is full, smooth, oily mouth feel. Well layered IPA with initial fruity flavors that fades into a grassy and lemony bitterness. Finish is long and bitter. Nice.

Shared 22oz. bomber. Poured hazy amber with chunks of floaties. Sweet malts balanced well with notes of pine and citrus. Slightly spicy, funky finish. Medium bodied. The Nelson Sauvin hops seem a bit Tomahawk-esque.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright light orange clear pour with a little white head. Amazing floral hop taste, with a nose to match: extremely unique and floral (probably from NZ hops), very very juicy and nice, grapefruit citrus as well, rounded out nicely with a subtle but smooth carbonation and mouthfeel. This is a very good standard, drink every day IPA with a juicy flare adding unique complexity.

4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Shared bottle at eTap on Howe St in Vancouver. This is very highly tilted toward hops. Citrus hop flavors predominate, but thereís a malted aftertaste as well. Maybe the best hoppy IPA Iíve ever had!
Fresh sample on tap at Maloneís in Vancouver. A turgid and murky brew of a brownish orange cast. Big grapefruit flavour here, though no oneíd ever mistake this for a grapefruit cooler. All beer here, friends. Still a great one!

22 oz. from PCC Fremont. Smells a little like spicy urine. Hops are way too sticky. Once the beerís in thatís all there is to taste and once itís gone thatís all there is left. Not terribly balanced but itíll do.
