3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malt, floral hops. Flavor of sweet caramel malt, bitter hops, spicy hops, and less toastiness. Good IPA, but I think I prefer some of their other IPAs (Elevation and Hop Pursuit).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 Standard pale orange appearance, nice head, fairly clear. Aroma was a change, as non-standard IPA hops were used - big aroma of bitter hops, but instead of the classic C notes, there were lots of floral and earth components. Flavor matched - just enough malt to hold things together in a beer that focused on an unusual hop profile. Interesting, although not my all time favorite. As it warmed, anise and orange marmalade notes came through as well. Bonus points for originality.

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.

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?

Bottle; poured a clear orange color with frothy head. Aroma of earth, fruit, spice, and grapes. Flavor had a grape element to it. Alot actually. Malt was light, with some nw fruit and earthy hops. A bit thin

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber - clear copper pour. Aroma of grass, lemon and citrus hops. Taste of caramel roasted malts and slightly acid hop bite. Finishes up a tacky bitter sweet. Ok - not great.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Local 22oz bottle. Pours a clear orange-copper colour with a short white head and spotty lacing. Nice, gentle aroma of mandarin oranges, grass, and citrusy northwest hops. Definitely not an overpowering flavour initially. Very light hops and some citrus notes but once the back of your tongue gets splashed the bitterness starts. Relatively long finish with lingering bitter notes. Okay for me but not one of my favorites.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of my least favorite Full Sail’s so far. Light in hops, some butter flavor and a bit unbalanced. Still, very drinkable. Watery.
