Pours clear orange with a large white head. Aroma is orange peels and grass. Flavor is bitter and grassy hops. Some orange and a hint of caramel. Finish is a long lingering bitterness. Slightly thin, and muddled by the over the top bitterness.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
22 ounce bottle from the Davis Food Co-op. Has the same husky, grainy Full Sail house character that I have become very bored with. Some spicy, grassy hop aromas come through...perhaps some Nelson Sauvin? Smells reminiscent of Anchor Humming, and that is not good. Just sorta swampy. Modestly hazy copper body (perhaps chill haze) with a good whitish head and nice lacing present. Starts sweet before this becomes toasting and cloyingly sweet, milky, and generally repulsive in the middle. Finishes with some spicy, grassy hops. Some floral notes are also in there. This is just entirely fucked up and reminiscent of vomit. What ever happened to Full Sail?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Pours a transparent amber bronze with a stringy-lacing froth of khaki head. Has a sweet lightly toasted caramel and pale malty nose with some fresh resiny grapefruity hoppy notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and sweet light doughy malty flavor with a fresh piny hoppy balance before a clean bittersweet finish. A fresh and very drinkable IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 Oz bottle from Roth’s Vista Market,Salem OR
Nice looking IPA here deep slightly hazy orange body and a nice thick ,bubbly off white head.Aroma is hoppy but not as much as expected, mainlly grassy, fruity in aspect..some breadieness in the back.
Very hoppy flavour to it, but like the label states..very bright and fruity..really gives a "zing" to the exierience.
OK on the palate, not astonishing but to style..nice fruity bitter after taste
Overall a pretty simple beer actually. Not Full Sails best IPA but acceptable.
