Pours a weak golden brown color with a very thick white foam. Smells of Hops, and grapefruit. Taste of lemon grapefruit. Pine cones and grassy. Super clean finish. All in all this beer is one hell of an IPA.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Body-medium yellow, very little foam, almost still looking. Nose-grassy, PNW hops without the citrus note. Taste-sweet, body odor, armpit, bitter, fruit esters. Numbs my tongue. A little bit of alcohol on the back end. Just a little to over the top to completely enjoy.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2012 Bottle thanks ericandersnavy. Pours with a small white head over a clearish golden body. Aroma is pungent hops (I get a lot of Simcoe), some other citrus hops, toffee and marijuana. Taste is pine, earthy and mango hops. Good stuff. Light bubbles, some alcohol and a bit dry on the palate. 3.9
Bottle (bottled 3/20/12). Clear golden hue with a lasting white head. Good lace and retention. Aromas are of tangerine, tropical fruit, pine and resin. Medium dank and pungent qualities. Moderately low malt presence. Floral. Low esters. Smells very much in the vain of a West Coast hoppy beer. Flavors are moderately malty, lightly nutty, hoppy. Extremely bitter, lingering to the point of astringency. Bitter balance. Light oxidative presence (odd for something this fresh). Dry malt character, plenty of alcohol. Hop flavors are of tangerine, medium citrus, grassy. Really astringent. Moderate bubbles, dry, grassy, warming. 3.6

Bottle thyanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a murky light gold with white head. Aroma is somewhat piney. Flavor is strong, hoppy, piney, grassy, alcohol, and strong bitter. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy with medium-high carbonation. Overall, good stuff!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Pours almost a hazy yellow with a mild head. Aroma was citrus and piney with a hint of orange. It has a nice hoppy flavor with a bitter taste and a nice finish. Reminded me of Three Floyds Dreadnaught.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a pretty ugly pale yellow with decently thick head. Aroma is bursting with citrus hops and huge bitterness- definitely plenty of cascades in this. Pale malt adds just the right amount of sweetness to this, and a bit of fruitiness comes out. Flavor is ridiculously bitter and amazing. Extremely resiny and delicious.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle courtesy of Jason. Good citrus lights up the nose and says man this is a good beer. Copper body with white head and medium lacing. Dry bittering in the flavor but also some citrus oranges/ grapefruits. Citrus vine dry resin left on palate. Much like pliny the younger jast had over the weekend. Thanks Jason.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden amber colour with a thin white head and no real lacing. Aroma is mostly piney hops and some sweet oranges. Flavour is like biting into a grapefruit rind followed by some sweet pink grapefruit hops. Bitterness in the finish combined with a little alcohol heat might actually make your lip tingle a little. Well done.

12 oz. Golden with a small ring of bubbles. Aroma of resin, grapefruit, caramel and light urea. Flavor is a nice mix of the same, with more grapefruit. Light medium body is hop-dry, tingly and crisp.
