Bright yellow/gold color with medium white head and moderate lacing. Aroma and flavor have great grapefruit and earthy hops, a bit grassy and very easy drinking. Well balanced and very good overall.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Robe blonde légèrement voilée.
La mousse se forme bien et libère des saveurs de fruits exotiques.
Saveurs maltées, fruit de la passion, ananas et litchi. Très longue en bouche, on reste sur ces notes de fruits exotiques.
Probablement une des meilleures IPA au monde.

At this point I’m too inebriated to properly rate this beer. I must revisit it though because it’s refreshing and tart and really good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: citrus and herbs, something like mango and pine with heather.
Appearance: golden color and thin white head.
Taste: high bitterness (citrus and pine), some citrus notes, quite dry and one-dimensional.
Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, bitter finish.
Overall: Quite average, nothing special.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
DATE TASTED: August 2, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... OCCASION: watching Naked and Afraid XL... APPEARANCE: quintessential golden amber body with a scarcity of effervescence--surprising...not surprisingly, the head is creamy, thick, white as snow and lacing beautifully as it eases its way to the body ... AROMA: the grapefruit rocks the nostrils; spruce, coconut, fresh biscuit and perfurmed flowers give this beer a tremendously varied profile...the draw alone is an experience ...PALATE: alive with carbonation, with a sizzling finish from teeth to throat that streaks and holds ...TASTE: as promised, grapefruit overloads the senses and dominates the other citrus fruits vying for attention; melon and lemon are detectable; the resinous pinecone is undeniable late; the malt base counters the hops deluge and dams the intensity with biscuit... OVERALL: just another in the long line of West Coast IPAs that could be a ritual with me if I were married to the idea of one style; the flavor crushes the experience through an intense wall of hops...at 7.5 ABV, a perfect balance of strength and sipability...

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear orange golden color with a fine white head. Nice lacing. Toffee, caramel, over the top tropical and hoppy aroma. Medium (+) body and a fine carbonation. Tad to sweet. To much caramel/toffee, harse fruity, resinous and grapefruit hoppy. Not good. Will like to try a fresher one.

Pours a clear light orange. Smells of pine, grapefruit. Taste is excellent balance of assertive hop bitterness and malt sweetness. I get orange, lime, caramel, toffee, pine. Very solid west coast IPA; among the best widely available.
