3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a minimal wispy white head. The nose is light citrusy hops with a caramel malt base. The flavor is pretty balanced between the hops and malt, not overly bitter, with a light caramel base. Lighter bodied with fizzy carbonation. Pretty middle of the road stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle in Palm Harbor FL. I always seem to find the Full Sail products in the South for some reason. This one is a little lighter in color than your typical IPA but still well-flavored. And after spending the past week with highly alcoholic IPAs, this one feels refreshing at only 6.0% ABV.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a small white head and almost no retention. The aroma smells truly awful.. some light citrus but a really poor IPA aroma. The taste is lightly bitter, boring, muted citrus. Sorry, this guy is a dud.

We did a blind taste test between this beer and 4 others to determine which was a better IPA. The beers that were competing were: Stone IPA, Big Sky IPA, Bear Republic Racer 5, Lagunitas IPA, and Full Sail IPA. Here is the video:

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 12 oz Bottle. The beer pours to a orange/amber color with a small white head. The aroma is a floral / grassy smell to it. The taste is medium body with very little bitter on the finish. Overall more like a hoppy pale ale to me but not bad.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Amber, white head, medium lacing, clear color. Aroma is bitter hops. Taste is well, bitter, and not a good bitter at that. Abrupt finish. I’d say I was disappointed but I’ve yet to be impressed by full sail.
