2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice sweet citrus aroma, but it dissipates quickly and turns a little oniony as it warms. A slightly astringent burnt carmel flavor is soon swallowed up by a more astringent bitterness. It’s not bad, certainly drinkable, and better than most mass market beers. But it’s not nearly balanced or any real "hop lover’s dream." There are so many more tasty choices out there; why bother?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light orange with tight white head. Mellow hop citrus aroma. Soft on the palate, with a hop and toasted malt finish. Good balance. Kind of reminds me a smaller Great Divide Titan.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Stylistically very hoppy, but still refreshing. Citric and fruity, long bitter aftertaste. Great American-style IPA!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light golden color with a frothy creamy head that stays for a while. Nice hoppy taste with a little bit of a sour hoppy after taste. I will buy this beer again.

For a solid, everyday IPA, hard to beat.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a deep golden color and a medium white head. Citrus, hoppy aroma and a similiar tatste. A good malty balance to this IPA, smoother and sweet than other IPAs.

This is a very smooth IPA. The hops don't hit you too hard, but they're there. Just last night I was wondering what's wrong with my beer palate, I only seem impressed by the extremes. I'm glad this proves that I can still appreciate subtle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours slightly hazy, golden brown with a smallish head. Smells distinctively of hops, with a touch of yeast. Supurbly balanced; a stong hop presence that doesn’t overwhelm. In fact, the hop seems quite in harmony with the malt, a rarity in IPAs. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this beer, but yet somehow it just doesn’t seem remarkable in any real way, either.

Not a bad IPA. Seemed a little on the mellow side for an IPA. It had the characteristics of an English IPA in that the hop flavor was smooth and made way for the malt flavor. Not a typical overpowering American style IPA, but a good drink nonetheless.
