3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2014 Two month bottle pours a golden yellow with a little orange hue. Just a small amount of white fizz. Nice rich aroma, grainy bright but really, herbs hoppy. There is a sweet grainy front that is nice and smooth but quickly fades into the bitter citrus peel and lightly abrasive earthy hop kick. Fairly focused on the hop character it has a steady bitterness, a moderate lingering flavor and works great with the grains. I think the grains are actually my favorite part, makes this very easy to drink.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
"What a wonderful, fresh IPA this is! Huge and complex aroma and flavors...heavy pine, citrus, AND tropical candied fruit, like pineapple. Near perfect balance between sweet and bitter. Drinks like a double flavor-wise with a lighter drinkable palate. Among the elite. Thanks ggrumet for this masterpeice!"

Nice IPA scent, deep golden color, huge IPA taste, a bit of an IPA aftertaste, this is a great IPA and I had it after a Sam Adams Rebel IPA which is another good IPA

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
355 ml. bottle sampled @ Pure Apricot Tasting. Thanks! Excited to try this one, I have heard a lot of great things about this one. Orange, little white bubbles for head. Huge cheese hops in the nose, bit odd mix malt, candy, caramel, touch dank,Ö Taste is dank, cheese, malt, apricot, caramel, grass, fruits,Ö Creamy body, low carb. Nice beer but not top (esp. due to a bit clashing malt & hop profile), prob. too high expectations here.

Aroma is dank hops and pine. The flavor is dank hops, grapefruit, citrus/fruit, malts, a hint of nuttiness and a long and bitter/very slight heat in the finish.

Bottle to glass. Pours a clear golden light amber color with a thin off white head. Aroma is quite distinct, funky tropical fruits, skunky. Flavor is a delicious fleshy fruit sweetness. Light to medium in body and extremely drinkable. Unique. Fantastic.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy dark amber with a creamy head. Healthy, fresh, traditional hop aroma. Strong hops flavor with a minimum malt back. Not overwhelming but solid. Sticky sweet aftertaste with a minimum hops linger.
