22 oz bomber into a tulip. Thanks Chris! Pours a clear straw yellow with crazy lacing. Nose is peaches, pine, and light caramel. Taste is a wonderful peachy hoppiness with only a light bitterness. Smooth and easy drinking with no hint of the high abv. Delicious!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber from Winslow’s. Hay color pour, murky clarity with somewhat lasting fizzy white-head, spotty lacing. The aroma coming out of this beer was overwhelming yet awesome. Strong citrus (tropical) fruit, lemon, pineapple, mango, honey. It reminded me of when I was in Panama. There was a stong bitter peppery taste up front with a light pineapple and fruit finish. This had a very different aroma and taste that I have not encountered before. It was a bit overwhelming, but I really liked it.

Taster on tap at Barley’s during RBWG. Clear orange yellow color. Good rocky off-white head, nice thicker lace. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Good bigger body. More dry finish. Nice bigger bitter taste, light zesty sweetness. Good bigger grapefruit hop, light spiciness. Some caramel malt. This is an impressive, aromatic, citrusy grapefruity IPA.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear golden with just a touch of amber. Massive full head with excellent lacing that lasts. Very nice nose of citrus hops - grapefruit, orange and tropical notes of pineapple coupled with mango - over a slightly sweet caramel note. In the background, a hint of pine is also detected. Light medium body with an almost smooth texture. Slightly above normal carbonation level. The exceptional flavor profile is well balanced with hop flavor, light bitterness and sweetness. It begins with the citrus and tropical hop flavor profile of the nose, progresses to light bitterness with a peppery note and ends with a nice caramel sweetness. The finish effervesces into a mix of the full flavor profile leaving a slight citric tartness over a peppery bitterness. Exceptional seems a bit of an understatement for this world class ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Barley’s for RBWG. Pours a clear gold color with a small off-white head that laces the glass. Notes of tropical and citrus fruits, tea, florals, pale and caramel malts. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a fruity mouthfeel that finishes dry. Good IPA.

On tap at Thirsty Monk. Hazy light copper pour with thin white rig. Aroma of citrus and pine. Very bitter. No sweet malts to balance it. Very rough. A bit dry. One of the worst IPAs I have had.:

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
on tap @ Universal Joint / Asheville NC --- Clear, medium amber with a full robust head cover, streamers of lace. Taste is caramel malt that is joined early in the palate by sour grapefruit bittering. Hops carry everything to the finish, finally yielding to a little caramel before it all disappears. Really assertive, and really good. Highly recommended.
