3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange pour with moderate off-white head with decent lacing. Aroma of mostly citrus with some floral and light caramel notes. Citrus heavy taste of grapefruit and lemon, yet still slightly sweet with hints of malt present. Somewhat bitter and dry finish. Pretty good IPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light golden with plenty of carbonation and a large white foamy head. Brew smell reminds me of incense sticks, hops and some lighter fruits or flowers. Medium body the hops and carbonation bounce around on the palate. Floural hops and the taste of orange balance pretty well with a bread like malt and a dry finish. Neither malt or hops are too strong, not a weak beer but too expensive.

beautiful cloudy orange pour with a small white head that faded extraordinarily quickly. typical ipa citrus nose. smells like cascade. citrus hoppy flavor with a nice hoppy finish. nice full body, however, the best thing about this beer was its appearance; the rest is really pretty run of the mill ipa, in my opinion.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Years ago when this was a seasonal at the brewpub I loved this stuff. As more and more flavorful hop beers have come along and my insatiable appetite for hops moderated to an almost reasonable level I have grown less fond of this beer. It is still one that I enjoy when Iím jonesiní for hops. You can smell it coming from across the bar. It also has a nice IPA color and appropriate head. Lovely on hand pump. For the most part I find that it is way out of malt/hop balance. Sometimes itís just the perfect thing, lots of time itís not.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is hints of floral, and citrus, especially grapefruit. Pours a hazy dark golden or light amber. Light, white, foamy head which dissipates rather quickly. Taste is of medium hops build, less than your typical IPA, but delicious nonetheless. Runs smooth through the palate with a dry finish. Overall, I would recommend this to those who arenít quite ready for a full bodied IPA. Not a knock on goose, as this is a great drinking IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma:I can smell the hops. Smells nice... Appearance:Medium brown. Nice head somewhat bubbly. Head dissapates quickly... Flavor:Bitter and malty. Not very burnt. Hearty... I like it..... Palate:Thin. Not very carbonated. Not necessarily the best thing about this but itís alright.
Overall: I love it. Very good not a horrible price (had worse beer much more expensive). Itís damn good and I wish the rating would come higher. The palate brings it down in and of itself but it fits well with the general feel of the drink.

12oz bottle. Pours a golden copper color with 1in. off white somewhat sustaining head that left good lacing. Aroma is spicy and fruity hops. The flavor is dominated by the fruit and spice and balanced well with a nice dry malt in the middle. Medium body with excellent dry texture and lively carbonation. An awsome tasteing well priced IPA. I will certainly enjoy more of this brew.
