2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours clear golden with two finger fluffy bright white head that dissapates quickly. Some lacing, medium body, resinous texture, and aroma is pine. Taste is lots of pine, a little grapefruit, and a bitter hop finish. Not one of the better IPAs I have had, too much pine.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: clear, deep gold color, frothy white head. Aroma: beautiful mix of grapefruit citrus and pine. Taste: floral, almost jasmine tea taste, light honey, finishes smooth hoppy bitterness. Mouthfeel: medium thin body, slick & creamy. Overall: pretty awesome. Not quite the Double Jack but delicious in it’s own way. Really top notch!

7.5% alc/vol with a very normal ipa taste. I would recommend it to people. Binnys worker said it was his favorite

12oz bottle. Pours a light golden with a white head. Huge hop aroma and taste with the pine and citrus flavors. A good west coast style IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Moderate malt notes of roasted and caramel, light to moderate pine and grapefruit for the hops, light dough for the yeast, and background notes of date and butterscotch. Head is small, frothy white, with fair slippery lacing and is mostly diminshing. Color is slightly hazy amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately sweet, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a lively carbonation and a drying finish. The malt dominates over the hops a bit, but this IPA’s components mesh well with each other. One of the better IPAs I’ve had in awhile.

Had this out of the bottle. WOW, this is one amazing IPA. Rhode Island only got a few cases in from what I understand so it’s hard to find. I was given a bottle by a friend now I want more, but can;t find it....

Pours a relatively clear orange color with a two finger head. Aroma is of grapefruit and other citrus. Taste is more balanced than I would have guessed based on aroma. A very good IPA that I will happily buy again.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head...decent lacing. Aroma has some grapefruity spice and some piney notes...just a hint of peach. Flavor has some toasty toffee maltiness and significant bitterness...piney with light citrus and stonefruit...mildly spicey. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a bitter, resinous pine finish.

Awesome surprise from bpgpitt10 from BA:
Pours a ruby-golden body with a tall, dense white head that falls off after a few minutes, really nice lacing.
The smell is tons of citrus and tropical fruit, very fresh indeed.
The taste is extremely hop forward with the same citrus and tropical fruits, mostly grapefruit and tangerine, these are how IPAs are suppose to taste - flavor over bitter.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with good carbonation, alcohol is slightly astringent.
Highly recommended, right up there with the best of ’em.

Always an excellent choice. Tons of hops, and a decent amount malt to balance. My only complaint is that sometimes this can taste a little boozy if it’s not fresh.
