Rich cloudy apricot color. Very small off-white head. Strong citrus and piny hop aroma. A littlebeer danky. Crisp smooth cool flavor. Strong and hoppy but balanced and not offensive. Small warming finish with an acute and mellow bitterness.

Yet another winner from Full Sails. Beautiful orange color with plenty of head. Nose is a bit stuffy but I get some citrus on the aroma. The body is wonderfully bitter with just the right amount of malt.

Bottle at Pat’s chriso birthday tasting. Pours clear amber with a medium, white head. Some tangy citrus, pine and orange in the aroma. Medium sweet flavor with toasty malts, light caramel, grass, pine, and light citrus. Medium to full in body with fine to average carbonation. Lasting bitter finish with moderate warmth. Notes of toasty malts, pine, ripe citrus. Not bad. Understated. Solid DIPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange brown with a thick white head. Aroma of floral hops, bready malt, caramel malt, spicy hops, garlicky hops. Flavor of a sharp hop spiciness with some bitter hops and caramel malt. Just a hint of citrus. Very tasty IIPA (I can’t see why others don’t love it!). More good stuff from Full Sail.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. Hazy orange amber with a small head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, flowers and a bit of cat pee. Flavor is lots of bitter PacNW hops with a toasty malt presence just for balance. Medium body with average carbonation and a dryish, clean, long, bitter finish. Great IPA, loads of hop character, very easy drinking.

Looks like an IIPA should. Red orange, like a blood orange with thick head.. Full aroma, fruit and citrus. Some fruit, and a bit of malt in the full body. Lasting hop finish.

strong floral hops honey like malts and perhaps a piney presence too in the aroma.. appearance the usual ipa look clear amber orange liquid white dissipating head but good lacing..tatse is hoppy indeed..grassy piney spicy citrus and floral malt component comes out with warmth..palates a four light-medium bodied but again strong hoppy bitterness..overall a little one dimensional but good and not expensive(4.99 per 22 0z bottle)

Very hazy orange-amber with a brief off-white head. Highly aromatic with tons of tangy citrus. Flavor hits with an upfront piny bitter assault atop biscuit malt, then a brief bit of caramel, and finally a dry, grassy but fruity tangerine finish with plenty of lingering bitterness. This is one of the better offerings from Full Sail.

Bottle at Chriso Patriks Bday tasting. Clear deepish gold lasting white head. Good hops but some metal. But then the hops take over. Lots of hops in mouth. Its pretty giod fir the hops. Powerful but i want to drink more of it. Quite harsh on bitterness on finish. Some peach fruit. Some toast
