4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Exactly what an IPA is supposed to be. Pale, big bitter piney nose with a little citrus. Palate is thin, supper bitter with a quick dry finish. Strong stuff.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a slightly hazy honey-gold with a tight-bubbled, creamy off-white head that settles quickly and leaves some spotty lace. Powerful, hop forward nose involving grapefruit, mango, pineapple, pine sap, and passion fruit all cranked to eleven along with some honey, biscuit, and toasted malt notes. Pretty sweet flavor-wise but very bitter. Medium bodied, oily, actively carbed, bright, with a long, luxurious bitter pine finish. Goddamn awesome.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Received in trade from cpetrone84, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours a clear deep golden color with a decent white head that slowly dissipates to a ring on top. Smells of citrus, pine, resin, dankness, and a hint of green onion with a solid bread and light caramel to back it up. The flavor sweet enough to remind you that this is beer with hints of brown bread and light sugar and a boatload of dank hoppy goodness. Resinous pine with hints of garlic and green onion and a light bit of citrus with a moderate level of hop bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet resinous mouthfeel. This is a really nice IPA, I’m glad I got to try it.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear golden orange, excellent foam that never fully dissipates and laces the glass well. Aroma is an even blend of pine and citrus. Taste is sharply bitter along with musty, grainy notes from the malt. Bitterness lingers long in the finish. Overall, incredible aromas, one of the best if you like IPAs bold and extra bitter, although it is a little too much for my taste.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 Draft. Smack my face this is an aggressive beer. The appearance is standard and the aroma has the citrus qualities you expect but the taste is upfront and very flavorful. High bitterness yet balanced. The greenness of the hops can seem like a gimmick in most beers but not this one as it blends in nicely with all the other ingredients. A memorable beer.

Pours a hazy darkish orange with a large white head that leaves some thick lacing. Aroma is mouthwatering! Pineapple, citrus, pine, fresh hops, and malts. Taste is citrus, pine, hops and malts. Long finish with a malty aftertaste. Very crisp! Smooth with a creamy texture. One of the best IPAs I’ve had! On par with Three Floyd’s Zombie Dust. Very, very good!

Fresh bottle compliments of Chris. Pours ultra hazy bright orange with medium off white head. Nice lacing. Aromas and flavor of heavily dank simcoe hops: lots of grapefruit, pine, and tropical notes throughout my glass. Smaller notes of caramel, and mango. Medium body/carbonation. Finishes lightly bitter. Really good ipa. Would love a case if anyone is holdin?
