3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bronzed body with decent head. Definite presence of the Zeus hops in the nose and translating similarly to the flavor. Bitter aroma and flavor, accented with some crisp grapefruit rind. However, this brew goes down the gullet with relative ease. A medium powered IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice floral hop aroma. Almost golden colored pour. Malty and peppery. I like mine with more citrusy hops blended and those notes are nearly indistinguishable here. It does leave nice lingering aftertaste and has A very creamy/velvety feel I. The mouth.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The bottle says brilliantly bright IPA and thatís a good way to describe the appearance. The escaping bubbles are very prominent and the aroma has a lot of citrus. The flavor is unexpectedly hoppy but slightly soapy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dry leafy aroma, bright clear copper, thick creamy white head. Strong cantaloupe character and biscuit malt, juicy and dense, some apricot tartness and an earthy weight. Interesting mesh of flavors, I dig it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Clear gold pour, short white head, minimal lace. Nicely balanced all the way through with toasty and faintly sweet malt matching resin and spruce herbs with a hint of tartness and floral aroma at the long finish. Medium body and carbonation, average mouth feel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22. Pours crystal clear bright burnished coppery amber. Dense fluffy white head that sticks around for a while, if not forever. Mild orange peel nose with toast and caramel mixed in. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, and oranges again on the mid palate. Mild resiny finish. Not very creative or lively, but well made and flavorful enough. Decently refreshing.

22oz. Bottle. Pours pale but clear and very lively. The aroma is somewhat fruity and full of body; bitterness is midium to heavy. Overall; very satisfying and tasty.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, at Brewforia, pours a hazy dingy orange with a small sandy colored head. Faint fruity aroma. Peaches and apples. Dry lively crisp palatte. Not sure how this qualifia as an IPA. The bitterness is there...though I canít find all 70 IBUs that Full Sail claims. ECM more lacking is the hop flavor. Not un pleasent, just not hoppy. I continue to be inderwelmed by their "sun" series in general.
