3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strong hoppy aroma. Amber colored with not much head. Smooth with citrus notes to start before the hops take over. Hoppy to finish, but not overpowering.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle@home (from Bier-Deluxe - bottled on 3/27/14) Slightly hazy light copperish appearance with medium sized white head. Aroma is caramelly, resiny with citrussy and piny hops. Taste medium bitterness and lightly sweetish with some sourness. Palate is medium bodied with oily texture and average carbonation. The finish is dry and bitter. Clearly 5 months has taken its toll on this IPA but still you get a solid West Coast experience.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Firestone Walker tasting at Beer & Beyond shop. Almost clear orange-amber with a nice off-white head. Smell - mango, papaya, grapefruit, pine, onions and pepper. Sweet with biscuits and caramel malts backbone, fruity and citric hops, strong bitter finish, quite alcoholic.
Med-bodied, syrupy and oily on palate. Not very dry and quite heavy, bordering Double IPA. Still quite solid.

Easily one of the best, most balanced widely available IPAs out there. Pours golden orange. Perfect balance of hops and malt on the aroma and flavor. Insanely drinkable. Had my first one right after a Pliny and it wasn’t far off.
