3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to artmcd8. Pours an opaque golden amber color with a creamy one finger white head. Aroma is sweet tangerines, grapefruit, pine resin, honey, apple, and pineapple. Aroma is really on point with this one. Flavor is big hops on the front end, coating your palate in a bitter spiciness. There are some sweet citrus flavors peaking through but the hop flavors really stand at the front of this one. Finish is dry with a hint of spice. Overall a very nice IPA. Surprised I havenít heard more about this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer is a nice "west coast" IPA. This is lot like Stone IPA, it is a bit thinner in mouth feel and you can taste and smell the harsher nature of the Simcoe, but it is still very reminiscent of Stone. Even a bit more dry and bitter on the finish. This is good, but nothing new.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours orange and a bit cludy with a foamy white head and plenty of sticky lacing. Aroma was a bit dank and very citrus hop forward. Taste was citrus all around and pretty bitter throughout. I didnít get much sweetness, pretty much bitter from start to end, but darn good.

Just a ridiculously tropical west coast ipa. Smells wonderful. Putting the big dogs to a test right here in Ohio!

(bottle - 12 oz) Cloudy orange pour with a big white head. Huge hop and citrus aroma. Flavor is a massive hop and citrus bomb. Lots of bitterness that lingers for a while with a very sweet and resiny citrus finish. I can see why this won awards. Really damn good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap: clear copper with a fairly sustained white head and lots of carbonation. Peppery, hoppy aroma with notes of celery and something flat with a hint of citrus. Super hoppy with a blunt grapefruit rind aftertaste. A little mustiness in the aftertaste.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle courtesy of Falco242. Sweet, bubblegummy aroma that smells more like candy than beer. Doesnít look very good. Murky dark amber with lots of scary looking particalia, virtually no head or lace. Flavor is the quintessential west coast IPA. Perfect balance, resiny. One of the better IPAs I can remember. If this was available in my local market I would frequently have it on hand.
