3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tall boy can, vigorously poured into my shaker pint. Dark caramel color, clear and full of floaties. Topped with a large beige head, two fingers at first. The nose is moderately rich; citrus and floral. Some caramel. Well-developed hops flavor; citrus, grapefruit, and piney. Faint floral and earthy bits. Strong, but not overly bitter or sweet. Good brew.

Draft - Tangerine no tropical fruit. Clear gold with a rich beige head. Light tropical fruit and sweetness with a bit of grain. Not as good as it sounds.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is my third one and this one was currently poured into a pint glass.
Bottom of the can said "12/09/14.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy orange color. A fair amount of floaties roamed about with a thin sixteenth fingerís worth of white semi-foamy head that dissipated within a decent twenty seconds. Light spider web to off sort of all over lacing speckled the glass all around.
The smell had a fairly decent malted grapefruit-esque to slight piney to floral part coming about.
The taste was fairly bittersweet with a fairly leading grapefruity to piney edge and leading to a smoothed out sort of decent citrus aftertaste. A fairly nice palatable semi-dry finish accompanies the aftertaste.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent carbonation to it. 7.5%, hmmmm....canning date, makes me think, hmmmm....yeah, well, uh...(wishing for something just a tad fresher).
Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA, however, I wish I had this a tad bit fresher, ah, oh well.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 16 oz can into a beer can glass on 01.27.15.
A: Grapefruit and biscuity malt. Very citrusy.
A: 2 finger head that is retained. See through amber body with some unfiltered chunks.
T: Grapefruit and earthy biscuit dominate. Tangerine and some spice are more subtle.
P: Crisp and a bit chewy. I like it.
O: This wasnít very bitter. It didnít seem like 97 IBU, but FG wrote on the label that they wanted to balance the hops. It was easy drinking. Iíd buy it again.

Looks apricot yellow. Smells of pretty big american hops and decently big pale malts. Tastes like a solid IPA.

Sampled at Hawthorne Hophouse - Pours hazy yellow with a white head. The flavor is heavy on the grapefruit and pine and some dry malt balancing it. The finish is pretty zesty. Nice IPA.

A wonderful NW IPA. Pours a little cloudy, but a pretty color. Nice floral, and fruity aroma. I love grapefruit flavors in IPAs, and this one does not disappoint. Nice bitter finish with a little pine.

Copper pour from can. This one is a winner. Taste is citrus, pine, flowers, dough and hops, with a nice boozy finish. Very well done.
