3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2009 Bubbly pale orange with a sustained head.
Sweet and floury aromas. Honeyed sweetness on the tongue. Very smooth with a buttery thick finish. A little sweet for an IPA. I know my score seems harsh but I drank this straight after a Stone IPA and there really is no comparison. 2.7
Now, having had this alone I have to say it is rather lovely. The hop notes are so green and fresh. It reminds me of a Thornbridge Halcyon on a not-so-intense scale.

This beer has some really nice aromas of citrus and pine from the hops. Lots of differing flavors of grapefruit, pine, and mild grassiness. This is a very nice go to beer.

Pours a light, murky orange with a small white head. Aroma is of hops, citrus, malt, and pine. Taste is of slightly bitter hops, with citrus and pine. Nice caramel malt backbone. Not overly bitter, but very sweet. A very drinkable beer.
