3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Hotel glass
From: Whole Foods in Tempe, Ariz.
Purchased: May 15, 2014
Consumed: May 15, 2014
Misc.: Bottled March 21, 2014
Poured a golden, pale, clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white head that dissipated in a short while. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Below average foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Minimal-to-below average retention.
Smelled sharp grapefruit, citrus hops, grapefruit rind, floral hops, tropical hops, bitter spices and tangerine. Yummy.
Tasted not quite as potent as the smell. Got sharp grapefruit, grapefruit juice, grapefruit rind and grapefruit with sugar. Grapefruit I tell you! Also floral hops, citrus hops, tropical notes and orange rind.
Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Refreshing, slightly bitter finish.
Arguably the best session IPA I’ve ever had (know that there are probably five). Really good.

Pours slightly hazy light copper color with white head. Aroma is grassy, pineapple and citrus. Light malt start with tropical fruit and pineapple flavors. Finish is light citrus and crisp. No lingering hop bitterness. Really good flavor. Could definately drink this one all day long.

Gyllengul öl med lätt vitt skum. Doft av citrus, tallbarr, gräs och viss maltsötma. Samma i smaken tillsammans med viss örtighet. Något tunn kropp för högre betyg.

Had it out of the can, a good session ale you get a lot of citrus up front followed by a bit of malt, nothing too aggressive good beer.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I wanted to like this. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is kind of skunky. Taste is all hops but the bitterness is kind of weak on the backend.

Pours a golden orange, not much of a head. Has a very strong grapefruit and hops aroma. Flavor is light citrus, some hops, and lots of carbonation. Has a light to medium body feel. All around this is a very nice beer to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very accessible, easy to drink IPA. Hoppy without too much bite in the finish. A bit fruity and sweet in the middle.
