4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark gold with a fairly thick head. Super hoppy in both taste and smell, yet really easy to drink. Much lighter on the palate than I expected in an IPA.

Footbalm and timbo78 once again. Holla @ ya. Sits in the glass lacing so sweet itís like the super sexy lacy version of mormon underwear. Every element comes through in the sniffer...yeast, malt, hops...and obviously opium in the water because this juice is just too good. Very well made. Clean and refreshing. Iíve already written home to my mom.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Lots of floral and citrus hops, with hints of pine and resin.
Appearance: Cloudy gold with a thick, white head that dissipates quickly but leaves lots of lacing.
Taste: Light-medium bitterness with a light sweetness backing it up.
Palate: Medium-full body, slick, creamy texture, average carbonation, mild finish.
Overall: Quite smooth with only a mild kick of hops to let you know what youíre drinking. This is very well balanced, multi-layered, and not overly biased in one direction or the other.

Pours golden with a one finger head that lingers. Good hop and sweet malt aroma. Full nectar with good carbonation. A malty specimen with ample hop bittering and only mildly sweet. The finish goes on and on. Overall this brew is on the thick and malty side of the IPA spectrum.

One of the most balanced yet exciting straightforward IPAís Iíve tasted in a long time. Great green yet citrusy hop aromatic up front, with just enough bittering hop on the end. Great light toast on the malt character. Great all around IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with golden yellowish hues when held to a light and a two finger frothy white head that has excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap. Large chunks of soapy lacing are left behind.
Sweet citrus hop aroma with lots of floral notes and resinous oils. Earthy with hints of pine and sticky buds but the nose of this beer is full of sweet tropical and citrus fruit. Lots of grapefruit and pineapple along with some lemon and orange peel. Faint grainy, biscuit malt presence underneath.
Medium bodied with a blast of bitter earthy hops up front but the dryness is quickly countered by sweet citrus notes, pale malt and alcohol heat. Floral and earthy up front with lots of dry, sticky pine flavor that lingers over the sweeter notes into the finish. Lots of sweet fruit notes mid-palate from the hops giving off hints of pineapple, grapefruit, mango and orange peel. Underneath there is a subtle grainy malt presence with biscuit and faint graham cracker notes. Some alcohol heat/boozy sweetness toward the end of the palate. Very well balanced and easy to drink. Iím happy that I found this one. Recommended!

My brother brought this to me from Salt Lake City. Pours a hazy amber to gold with a big foamy long lasting white head. Nose of floral and citrus hops, with some light fruit. Medium in body. Good smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is light caramel malts with lots of citrus, fruit, and pine. Flavor is overall about as good as you can get in an IPA, and the hops are perfectly balanced and in tune with the malts. Finish is very flavorful with just the right amount of bitterness. Simply a great beer.

Courtesy of footbalm. Dark golden-orange. Aroma dominated by apricot and peach, distant malt. Flavor on par, malt comes through tad bit more. Again dry biscuity malt, but still has a huge apricot/peach combo I really like. Very clean, with lots of dry bitterness in the finish.
