3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep, rich cheddar orange with a nose of malty but fruity grapefruit, orange peel, and a touch of pine. Very bitter English-esque quality to the melding of ingredients, with hints of grapefruit, orange, biscuit, and a little grassy pine in the finish. Decent mouthfeel. Seems to be a worthy tribute to a classic English IPA.

12 oz bottle from Ithaca Coffee Company. Pours quite light for a beer of this magnitude. Little white head, little lacing, quite carbonated. Aroma is a ridiculous amount of hops. I think the only beer that Iíve smelled that was so overwhelmingly hops was Hop Stoopid or Palate Wrecker; but, those beers donít come close to this. Taste wise, this thing is grapefruit, citrus hops, amazingly smooth and not extremely bitter on the end for a 7.5%. Just an absolutely fantastic beer!

On draft. Nice golden pour. Hoppy aroma with a little pine end citrus. Taste is simply awesome. Hoppy with a good malty finish. One of the best of the style (IPAs) out there, if not the best.

I first tried this beer at the Oregon Brewfest in 2010 and I fell in love. For me it is the perfect IPA. Nice hop aroma and extremely smooth well-balanced taste. Drinking this on draft gives me a beergasm every time and itís hard for me to stop drinking it once I start. Purely delicious.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is the classic IPA. Malty with that northwest hop nose. Perfectly balanced hop, malt and bitterness flavors of citrus pine and fruits balanced with a strong malt backbone. Finishes clean and dry with a slight bitter end.
