3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. draft at Beechland Tavern in West Hartford, CT. Pour is slightly hazy golden amber, with off white head and good lacing. Smell is lots of pine and hop spice. Tons of citrus. Taste is hoppy but not too bitter, maybe a bit too heavy on the grapefruit and citrus. Over all not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from Whole Foods Columbus Circle, 08/18/2013. Pours orange amber, thin pillow of foam on the surface fades to hazy swirl, thin ring of lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel, nutty, orange essence and grapefruit, herbal grassy notes, boozy bitter finish. Taste is resinous, caramel citrus and piney hops, long bitter finish. Thick body, maybe a bit too sticky. Was hoping for more, maybe the keg wasnít in great condition, but as is fairly average and a bit too sweet/malty, nothing outstanding for me.

Has a pretty signature goose island flavor too it but with the nice concentrated go flavor that a double ipa usually has. Lovely.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2014 A medium-strong hop aroma. Very clear, un-bubbly. This is fairly sweet and sugary with a hop alcohol note thatís more noticeable near the end. Decent but not what Iím feeling at the moment.
Had again and had to raise this up. Truly fantastic.
