3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange amber body. Nose shows off some orange, lemon and grapefruit--not much else but some pale malts. Flavor is similar, but a bit more muted as the citric hops are left hanging. Medium bodied. Appropriate carbonation. Thin finish. Ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from samís. pours a glowing opaque pinkish orange with a thin layer of lace on top. Nose is floral, citrus, grass, light caramel, papaya, light rye spice. Flavor is more balanced, not quite as bitter as expected, lots of fruity sweetness with some pine, lots of florals, and grassy hop notes. Almost tastes like a slightly bitter tropical juice of some kind and the carbonation is soft which suggests a juicy mouthfeel but the grass and pine bitterness still finishes things off. Interesting ipa.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the GTMW 2011. Hazy amber with a thin tan head and a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of stinky, sticky resinous hops with some citrus and caramel beneath. Taste of resinous west-coasty hops, toasted pale malt, mild caramel and citrus. Full bodied brew finishes up nice and bitter and is pretty tasty.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is not really hitting the spot for me IPA-wise. It is a nice amber color w/ a decent head but appearance is the only aspect they really got right. The aroma is subdued w/ primarily dark, piny and herbal notes. Flavor is just dominated by an aggressive earthy bitterness which is balanced by a sticky sweetness but lends to a beer that neither has a compelling flavor nor is particularly drinkable. Finchís does better and there are way better IPAís locally. This four pack is the last I will probably buy.
