3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a clear orange with a small, white head. Aroma is earthy, herbal, and grassy. Flavor is a little bready malt with more of the grassy, earthy, slightly lemony hop presence and a lightly bitter finish. Pleasantly dry. This doesn’t have as much of a hop kick as I like from IIPAs, but the hop aromatics it has are quite nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber with a sticky dense white head. Aroma is lots of citrus, pine, floral, cereal, sugar and a mild soapy scent. Taste is sweet malt up front and then slowly fades to a strong hop bitterness, there is a very light alcohol taste. Medium body with average carbonation, a slightly syrupy mouth feel and a long bitter finish. Overall a nice IIPA, not one I would get really excited to drink every year but would go back to it for sure.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
-Note bottle tasted on 04/29/07 was MUCH better than the tap. I’d give that one a 4/5 and I have adjusted accordingly
On tap at the Falling Rock. The beer was served in a pint glass and was a light orange yellow in color. The smell was faint but grainy. The taste was very malty and a big let-down. I find Full Sail beers to fall at the ends of the spectrum. They are either phenomenal or they suck big time. This one sucked. I will try again with a bottle to see if it makes a difference.
Serving type: on-tap

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
~Aroma Grassy, earthy, grapefruit, with a slight caramel background. Together these aromas create a resinous scent that is hard to describe.
~Pours a clear golden amber color with small persistant white head.
~Earthy hop flavor with grassiness and a pretty intense grapefruit hopiness. Malts barely detectable. Some oakiness at finish.
~Med bodied with med carbonation. Dry. Some hop derived astringency. Very bitter finish.
~ Im not a big fan of this one. Would be nice if more malts were added to help support the hop bitterness. I like hops and bitterness, but this was almost pushed too far. Hopefully it will put some hair on my chest.

I much prefer the Full Sail special IPA’s than their regular offering. Nice assertive amount of hops. Pours a nice golden orange. A floral aroma wafts out of the glass.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with the wife - Pours with a big, creamy off-white head atop a deep copper pour. Aroma is sweet, bready malt with nicely balanced citrus hops, lemon, booze, and a little milkiness. The taste is different, with some caramel malt initially, then a transition into some real deep and intense grassy hops that bite in the back of the mouth. It’s like some of the real bitter weeds I pull out of my garden--not appetizing. Way too astringent--goes past grapefruit and into something altogether different. Too bad...this was showing some promise until I tasted it.
