2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Not sure of the freshness here, as my label says 2010. Hmmmm. Anyway, it pours out a hazy fairly bright orange with a medium off white head. No lace. Aroma is more malty than hoppy, sweet cereal, earthy veggie hop nuances. Not very appealing. The palate shows similar structure in that it features sweet cereal malts more prominently than aromatic hops. There is a lot of bitterness in here, but not much to elevate the palate. The hop character is more medicinal and astringent than anything. Not that great.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle:   Clear golden, moderate frothy white head, sparce lacing, light carbonation.   Astringent nose of hops and caustic biscuit maltiness.   Full Sail seems to have the same aroma for mos of their IPAs, and it never sits well with me.   Acrid hops and the aformentioned caustic biscuit like malt flavor.   The bitterness from this beer doesn’t come from the hops.   Seems grainy in a medicinal or chemical cleaner sense.   Don’t get me wrong, its not awful, but its not on my list of ever planning to drink again.   Also seems more of a Pale than an IPA, or at least 3/4 IPA.   Meh...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark golden with a nice beige head and a floral fruit aroma. There is a substantial caramel malt base that starts sweet and is quickly overcome with dry hop bitterness. It works pretty well.

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.

Draft @ The Sushi Bar, McCall, ID: Pours a golden color with a nice white head. The nose is bright and hoppy with orange and grapefruit, light citrus and moderate malty body. The flavor is clean and light, a very pleasing IPA with a unique hop profile. I drank many pints of this over the summer at the sushi bar.
