3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad, not good. Another diactyl seasoned IPA. But on the bright side, Its amber gold with thin white head, and goes well after a good one like Stone 14.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Grapefruit and lemon peel bouquet. Clear golden, medium yellow head. Tastes as it smells, but with the hops less prevalent and with a light maltiness to balance it out. Not bitter and barely an IPA, but pretty nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite a decent, little, and may I say affordable bomber of IPA. More and more, I have to give credit to breweries like Full Sail who are putting out a unique, quality product which is in the same breath interesting and reliable. This beer sports aromas of pine, basil and a slight amount of citrus. Palate is straightforward, and the malts leave a nice buttered toast flavor on the finish. Sticky pine throughout, but enough alcohol to make the beer not sweet. Very good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light copper color with a nice fluffy head. Citrusy aroma. Some grapefruit in there. Light hops too. Tangy flavor. Kinda chewy, but not really. Crisp. Dry hoppy finish. Kinda light hoppied for an IPA though.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear amber color with a medium head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus hops with a bit of a tropical note and faint malty notes. The taste is very bitter, resiny and herbal hops with some green apple notes. Medium bodied. Interesting, but not really to my liking.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Poured orange with a white head. The nose consisted of herbs, reefer, floral, hops, and vegetables. A very earthy, vegetable-like IPA. The hops weren’t resinous or alpha-ish bitter. Just earthy, spicy and floral. Some biscuit grains and malts to create a subtle sweetness. With a dry, earthy, grassy finish.
