2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light orange with a yellowed-newsprint head. Musty nose (not a good saison way) of rotten grapefruit rind. Yikes, thatís really off. The flavor is just a weak thin, slightly sour, slightly metallic IPA, but the nose makes it near to undrinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Pours a bright clear copper amber with a frothy tan film of foam.
Aroma: Big grassy hops and slight lemon and catty notes as well.
Taste: That signature metallic bitter taste from Full Sail, I believe it to be the yeast, grassy hops, a little bit of honey like malt and a tad bit of citrus. Finishes very bitter.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and fairly carbonated.
Overall: Itís big, itís bitter, but itís not my favorite varieties of hops. Iíd love to hear the locals weigh in on this beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a vibrant oily orange with a nice looking small white soapy head. Aroma is grass, oily hops, malt and very clean. Flavor is bitter grassy fresh hops, malt, citrus, well balanced and lots of hop oils. Zeus and Williamette are not my favorite hops, but they work well in this beer and itís a pretty nice IPA.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Iíve never really enjoyed Full Sailís IPAs at all, but this one is especially not good. Very stale and musty tasting and smelling. Ol Wiley Wiggins the pooch snagged a little of this though and seemed to enjoy it.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a medium golden color. Nose is lacking in hops, a little grainy. Taste is atrocious, tastes like onions and sweat socks. Terrible.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours gold amber with a white head. Aroma is citrus with some light vegetation and sweat. Flavor shows the same. Hop profile kinda reminds me of a less complex Gubna from OB. Eh.

Wow. I get back from vacation, sit at my cube in the cube farm and it takes me about five minutes to notice a package cleverly hidden by the beer gnome. Not only does the package contain this bomber, but an empty from some homebrew I left out for the Beer Gnome a few months back. So, thusly, three cheers for the Beer Gnome! Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah! Nose of pink grapefruit and first taste too. Very light toffee head that settles and remains a thin film of fizziness. Mody is thin but not watery. It leads to the mellow mouthfeel and lends to the overall "lightness of being" Peary sweetness simultaneously balances this light crisp critter. A fantastic brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
oz bottle $4. I usually buy the spot beers every summer but I may have been late on this one. Nice orange color but not much head. It smells a lot like their regular IPA but it does taste more hoppy with a bit of citrus but Iím not impressed by the malt profile. Now I am wishin g I had only bought one bottle instead of two but oh well.
