3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 7/3/14 from a capped 12oz bottle, thanks to Alex for this one. Pours slightly hazy orange amber with a thick , rocky white head that slowly recedes to thick, messy lace. The nose is fairly malt forward with plenty of hop forward resin, herbal notes, grass, and citrus. The flavor is very hop forward with tons of citrus peel, resin, and grass, with a bit more malt than some IPAís, but just enough to balance at the same time. The body is medium with a somewhat sticky texture, average carbonation and a long balanced hoppy bitter citrus peel hops finish.

Smells like a lot of grapefruit and tropical citrus. Light hopyness with a citrus flavor, backed by a light malt body. Very easy drinking IPA

Hoppy, fruity aroma. Cascade and Simcoe definitely recognizable (I think). Pineapple, grapefruit, citrus. So much fruit in an IPA. Bitter finish, medium carbonation, the perfect balance. So delicious.

Tap at shamrock. Bright yellow gold with lively carbonation that leads to a great white head that lasts. Big pine floral hop aroma. Flavor is well balanced between pine hops and sweet cracker malts. Not a beer for the hop adverse but a treasure for those who do.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden orange. Smells delicious! -- Tropical fruit, pine, pineapple; on the verge of dank. Taste to me is all about the hops, though there is a nice malt backbone that allows all of the flavor hops to shine. Medium bitterness. Medium bodied. Extremely solid IPA.

Tap at Fat Heads. Top notch IPA. Modern feel thanks to the Simcoe, and the Cascade and Columbus round it out. Filtered golden orange body. Foamy off-white head. Fresh, big hop tones. Great balance. Excellent.

On tap at 2014 GTMW, been waiting awhile to try this one, pours a hazy amber orange with a thick white head and lots of lacing, the aroma has a ton of citrus and tropical fruit on the nose, mango and pineapple over flow from the glass, the flavor has a bright hop and fruit front end with a crisp finish of citrus and fruit, mouthfeel was pretty awesome, wow.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear Amber with white head. Nice strong citrus aroma with a little pine. Even some tropical fruits. Taste is a nice clean consistent bitterness with a malt backbone. Moderately heavy bitterness with a mild to moderate sweetness. Flavors of grapefruit, orange, tropical fruits, pine, caramel. Definitely a top tier IPA.
