4.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a head of finely sized white colored bubbles that were fully diminished and left behind a typically carbonated transparent dark orange colored body. The mild aroma was hoppy. The hot sharp mildly vinous crisp mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong hoppy aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of bitter mild citrus crisp and hops. A wonderful best in class brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle and I need to stop buying bottled IPAís. IPAís need to be draft or growler fill only. A bottle just doesnít do them justice. Aroma is a mild floral, citrus and light pine hints.
Flavor is more sweet then I was hoping for. Strong amount of caramel and toffee malts, borderline sticky texture on the mouth with a medium in body leaning on fuller. The ABV is nicely hidden. Now as far as hop profile, itís decent but the sweetness takes over. Citrus, grass and light pine with a light/ mild lingering bitterness after the sip. The only thing that come to mind is.... Well, mild. Very drinkable IPA that Iím sure would score higher on draft.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours crystal clear light copper with a modest off-white head. The aroma has tangerines, funk, floral notes, cotton candy and lots of maltiness to offset the hops. The body is fairly full with light graininess and fairly soft carbonation. The taste starts off with lots of sweet maltiness, piny / tangerine/ mild fruit hoppiness. There is a big big malt backbone to this one. The finish has gentle hoppiness with fairly aggressive sweet caramel maltiness. For a double IPA this is one sweet cloying example. The hop are definitely here, but they canít overcome the sweetness that itís up against.

On tap at FT. Clear amber pour with lacy white head. Good hoppy aroma, citrusy, lemony. Taste is hoppy, very citrusy, light caramel malt, not too bitter, quite quaffable. Very easy drinking, med-full body and good carbonation.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tangerine nose, warm triple sec notes, juicy. Hazy orange, thick yellow head. Tastes as it smells, but much hotter. Orange is present. Alcohol is quite evident. Medium body not over the top with the bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, some pale and caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with a lot of malts and a good amount of hops. Average to smooth texture. A decent beer, but not the best of its style.
