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 IPAís components mesh well with each other. One of the better IPAs Iíve 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 itís 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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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 íem.

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 itís not fresh.

Pours golden/dark with sticky white head. Floral an banana aroma. Not too hoppy but keeps a hophead pleased. Very easy drinking. Friends that donít like IPA really liked this too. Defiantly high up on my list

Citrus is prominent in both the aroma and the taste. This is an incredibly well balanced IPA, and really enjoyable.

Amber color, creamy head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and hops. Taste is super balanced and not over hopped. Creamy mouth. I could come back to this again and again.
