3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Blind Tiger. Clear amber orange with nice white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is big citrus resinous hops, aggressive pungent fruit that i love, darker caramels beneath. Taste is big chewy hop resin fruity outrageousness. Big bitter finish that lingers. Slippery smooth on palate. Diggin it!

Birthday gift... and an awesome one at that! This delicious brew is packed with simcoe style hops... bitter, sweet, tangerine, and more bitter. Nose is bright, booze, hoppy, malty. Medium oily body. Really borders on double ipa.

Bottle. Aroma is pine, musk, citrus ring, resin, and light caramel. Slightly cloudy copper with little to no head. Clean palate, smooth with bitterness mostly in the finish. Not a lot of flavor depth, but enjoyable pine and fruit notes. Finishes with a dry grapefruit tangyness.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2011 On tap at the brewery. Deep, clean hops aroma. Floral, fresh, and citrus notes. One of the better fresh IPAs I’ve smelled. The taste is really good as well but ends on a somewhat light note. Great beer.
After multiple fresh pints via the brewery, I have to increase my rating score. The batches vary slightly but they are almost always excellent with a clean hop bitterness, floral notes, and a dank, semi-resinous hop component with some honey sweetness from the malt. A personal favorite.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, light orange pour, minimal white head. Grass and pine nose, grapefruit middle and finish. Light body, not much maltiness. Not really an English-style IPA, which is what one would expect from the name.

Footbalm! Average kid in class. Cheap ass 12oz from the good old mormon state brain washing liquor store. I’ll sip it again.

Clear amber-ruby. Medium off-white head. Hyphenated aroma of citrus-pine. Malty-caramel comes through in the flavor. Excellent bitterness to sweetness ratio. I really dig this one. Hopefully it will continue to be available in my parts as this one is a keeper.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber beer with a light head. The aroma is well hopped, and the flavour is very well hopped and quite thick tasting. Overall a reasonable well hopped IPA.

An actual IPA - cool. Damn, it has a great bitterness snap breaking up the significant maltiness. Drinkable. Somewhat unique in it’s single note bitterness. Not over the top.

12 oz. Clear burnt orange with a lasting creamy quarter inch of foam. Juicy citrus fruit , some florals, and toffee on the nose. Soft, light-medium body is smoothly carbonated and crisp. Flavor is orange-grapefruit, light caramel, and a big finish of peppery wood and resin.
