3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle sampled in a tulip,
this ale had a clear gold pour with a little honey color and a bit of red-orange, there was a very faint haze, the pour made a less than one finger head of white bubbles that receded to a open cover and ring, effervescence appears to be less than medium with a center stream of slow moving bubbles and a few other bubbles elsewhere, this beer left spots and fingers on the sides of the glass, there was no sediment layer but there was a little bit of particles/sediment in the last few drops in the bottle,
this beer had aroma of guava and lemon citrus hops, some pine to at first and the pine grows a bit as the glass warms, toasted malt,
light flavor of toasted malt, citrus and pine hops (not as big on the tongue as on the nose), light hop bitterness after the finish, and hops provided some dryness on the tongue,
it had a light mouth feel,
this beer has a nice nose but was light on flavors and on the palate, I can see why this could be drank all day.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer’s color is golden yellow with a very slight head, and the aroma reminds me of spruce and floral hops. The taste is quite bitter, slightly salty, and slightly sour; furthermore, the palate combines a bitter finish, soft carbonation, medium body, sticky texture, which is typical for an IPA despite how unpleasant I think it is to drink a beer that tastes like I licked the sap/resin of hops.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Hopleaf in Chicago, IL. Finally got to try this one. Poured a clear and bubbly greenish gold. Reminded me of mowing the lawn. Smelled almost grassy or green-ish, and tasted similar with some hops in it. Nice clean finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at MBGSF 2011 as All Day IPA. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Aroma is very strong, lots of citrusy grapefruit and pine. Flavor is comparatively weak, but still fairly nice, with pine, floral, light grapefruit, and a medium bitterness. Smells great, flavor is a little disappointing, though.

Bouteille 355ml. Couleur orangée voilée, mousse beige pâle laissant un voile et une belle dentelle, huileuse. Arôme de fruit de la passion, mangue, malt subtil. Goût de mangue, houblon résineux, céréales, amertume soutenue. Carbonatation moyenne-faible, corps moyen. Cette bière se boit comme un charme.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Founders. Poured into a tall almost pilsner style glass. Golden amber color with zero real head poured. Good aroma of hops but not really citrus or piney but almost fruity type hop aroma. Fairly hop forward but pretty light. Like the hops. The back end falls apart a little for me. Lighter mouthfeel. Not bad overall.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Market Street in McKinney. Pours a nice copper color with a thin white head. The aromas are grapefruit, pine, resin. The mouthfeel is slightly watery with a bitterness and light body. The was definitely a tasty session IPA which is hard to find. Well done. Cheers!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent enlightened copper color when held to a light source, white ring around the vessel for a head with no lacing upon it, high-light carbonation. Hearty aroma of pine and citrus. Hits the mouth with a medium body, hops have mellowed a little because it’s been sitting in my fridge for about a month- but it still packs a good size punch. Middle has a the peak of the hop wave, followed by some good size acidity on the finish with a twang of caramel. It works for me!
