Pours ruby with a fluffy dissipating head. Aroma is incredible. Huge citrus and grapefruit, with some piney notes. Taste is bitter and spicy with a prominent lemon note. Moderate carb.

This is very nice. Aroma is lightly stinky, grass, some orange, cat piss. Flavor is more towards the cascade and columbus side, quite bitter lingering in the finish. Awesomeness. The extreme assertive bitterness in the finish is the only real complaint here.

Bottle. Somewhat opaque amber beer with a big off-white head. Aroma is very hop-forward, lots of grapefruit and pine, but with some biscuity malt as well. Taste is medium-heavy bitter, medium sweet, nice balance. Finish is bitter. Moderate carbonation, medium body. Very good IPA.

Clear light golden yellow color with a thick soft cap.
Aroma is clean light citrus with a faint biscuit note and no sweet or malt notes.
The flavors are the tangerine and grapefruit with some flowery notes, really light and clean all around. This is how IPAs are supposed to be. Clean and almost mute backbone.
Mouthfeel is medium-light for being 7.5 abv.
This would be a great IPA to have hanging around.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle through trade poured an amber color with a one finger off white head. Aroma has a nice tropical smack, sweet resins, citrus rind, grapefruit, and a bit of malt holding it all together. Really nice and juicy. Mouth feel is medium with a nice coating and plenty of carbonation. Flavor is no slouch on the hops either, dry citrus rind, grapefruit, resins, light bitterness, and again enough malts to keep it together. I just received these in a trade and am on my second one in the hour they have been here.

12oz bottle. Dark amber with a nice biege head. Very well balanced resin and slight citrus hop aroma with a good malt backbone. Very smooth, alcohol is well hidden, easy to drink and a nice full body with moderate carbonation. Becomes quite dry and definitely bitter.

Draft - pours misty pale orange with offwhite head and thin lacing. Nose is grapefruit and light cat urine. Flavor adds citrus and caramel. Bitter and more bitter. Pine aftertaste. Nose made me think of Sierra Nevadaís Torpedo but the flavor is more like pine.
