On tap. Excellent west coast IPA. Citrusy hops in the aroma and taste, very well done. The alcohol is pretty much invisible, could drink this all night!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of Pineypower, thanks Dean. Poured a clear orange body with lots of clinging carbonation originally sitting underneath a large foamy bright white head. Aroma started off with a large dose of citrus fruit and rind with some appricot and mango as well, wet grains lemon zest and lime towards the end. Fuller bodied with full carbonation and a dry bitter fiinsh. Flavor is missing the tropical fruits but there is plenty of grapefruit and rind, toast, bitter lemon zest and hop cones. This packs a serious hop punch and could easily be mistaken for a DIPA. Great beer.

Slightly hazy golden color with a thin head, bold taste right way with citrus notes and a very hoppy presence. A bite of bitterness with bright carbonation to finish. I would drink this one again.

Pours amber with off-white head. Nose full of mild caramel and toast. Medium to heavy on the tongue with a perfectly balanced toffee, toasty malt, and ripe date flavors. Hops are resinous with subtle apple character. Impressive IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber coloured beer with some very light carbonation and a short white head. Fruity almost peachy hoppy aroma with some floral hints. Medium to full dry palate. Finish is bitter dry hinted. Very special, fruity ending with a sharper bitter light herby hint. Nice and special.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml. bottle. Pours a lasting ivory head, with extensive lacing, over a clear light amber (SRM 7) body....nose is citrus, grapefruit peel, cereal, light toffee/caramel....taste is grapefruit to start, then toffee/caramel sweetness, with hints of floral honey, followed by a pine, citrus lingering bitterness....mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, carbonation adds creamy tones. This is a well balanced, not overly bitter, nicely complex, "American/Left Coast" IPA. BJCP 7/3/15/4/8

Bomber. Pours clear copper with a fine off-white head. Floral and citrus on the nose. I was expecting more hop punch, but it came off clean and balanced. Medium hop finish. Good, but didn’t knock off the socks.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle poured into a Shaker at 45°. Color is a bright gold with very good carbonation and a nice white head. Aroma is hoppy with pine and citrus. It has a lighter medium body with a crisp fizzy mouth feel. Flavor starts with light malt and a touch of fruit then the hops jump out with big lemon and orange citrus and ends with a bold bitterness. In the after taste the bitterness lingers yet the fruit flavors give a mild sweetness at the same time. Overall its a very good IPA.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2012 Nothing like a west coast IPA. Pours a golden orange color with a white foam head. Has an aroma of grapefruit, caramel, and pine. Sweet citrus caramel taste with a nice resiny hop hit. Sticky on the finish. Damn tasty.

This is a fantastic IPA. The flavor is amazing, tons of hops flavor and bitterness, just a touch of maltiness. Very good.
