3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
35,5 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Great hoppy and caramel aroma also hints of nuts. Great tasty flavour of burned caramel and quite hoppy. Ends up very dry and bitter. A very nice tasty IPA endeed.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Clear amber body with a good white head. Aroma of hops and grapefruit, with an evergreen aroma with it. Flavor began with hops, grapefruit and a subtle caramel sweetness, but evolved into a bitter, evergreen flavor that I didnít love. Palate is ordinary. A good IPA, but not one of my favorites.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 12 oz. long neck brown bottle with a notched bottled month and week date on right side of front label. Made a good appearance, poured a semi-cloudy copper with a large foamy pale tannish white head that reduced to a thin bubbly lacing. Had a big fresh piney and citric hop nose with a floral earthiness as well. A crisp, hoppy textured medium bodied mouth feel, very good drinkability. Piney and earthy hoppiness upfront, the bitterness balanced by fruity, lightly sweet maltiness, more of a gentle rolling bitterness on the tongue, and a dry grassy/hay hoppiness and subtle grainy maltiness in the finish.
A highly quaffable and tasty AIPA, one of the better ones out there, at an affordable price, well worth seeking out.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark clear glowing amber. Great aroma. Thick head. Piney hops build to a grapfruit rind finish. Great hops punch in the mouth. Hops linger forever. Extremely dry. Tongue puckers lto the bitter dry finish ike with a dry Souvignon Blanc. Very drinkable. Almost no maltiness. I need a good balance and the palate was too dry without the malt finish but a fantastic example of superhopping. Hop hop hop.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a hazy orange with small off-white head. Aroma was a combination of malty and hoppy. This was one of the best IPAs I have ever had.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a murky coppery orange color with a medium sized, off-white head. Smells fruity, earthy, and hoppy. The beginning taste almost has a grapefruit taste, with a super hoppy mid and a smokey, malty finish. Average body and mouthfeel. Honestly this beer has many good elements but personally the taste is somewhat offensive. Iím probably not suited for IPAs, and I really canít stand grapefruit juice, which is what this beer mostly tastes like to me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful amber colour with a nice white head. Aroma with lots of grape fruits and the citric hops also dominate the flavour. Long dry end. All in all a very fine American IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep orange pour with beautiful lacing and nice bubbles. Piney/grass aroma and flavor, with a nice malt backbone and balance. Maltiness actually attacks towards the middle with breadiness and grain settling into a nice resinous, bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The bottle poured a slightly hazy amber beverage with an average off-white head that was mostly diminishing and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was hop-huge. The aroma was like being in a pine forest with cotton candy and flowers mixed in for good measure. The body was quite full with average carbonation and a crisp, dry texture. The flavor starts off pleasantly sweet. In the middle it begins to turn toward the bitter side but never gets obnoxious. The finish is long, crisp and dry.
