3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
First brew Iíve had from this brewery ...pours a nice copper with small bubbly head,low lacing, the nose is sweet malts and citrus ,has a nice balance of malts and hops with nice carbonation with malts leading the way and a nice hop bite at the back end with a slick finish,not bad considering I just realized the "best enjoyed by" date is a couple of months out and this beer is still pretty damn tasty I could imagine how much better a fresh bottle would be, ok enough rambling ....cheers

This is one of those no holds barred hop explosion... There isnít a lot of malt backbone to this. What is there is a great tasting amount of sweetness... The major shine to this beer comes from the crazy complexity to the hops. Citrus and some fruitiness... Itís good is what Iím saying... Very good.

Pours golden orange with a small white head. It smells like chalk, copper, grass, and earthy hops. The taste is a little sweet with a bit of honey, earthy bitter hops, and grapefruit rinds. Itís a pretty good easy to drink ipa.

Clear golden white head. Citrus nose. Green hop flavor, cloying, with decent malt background. It does taste pretty big.

A very nice IPA. It would be top notch if they could get some aroma out of it. As is, there is very little aroma. Sweet nice mouth feel with a citrus light pine very slight bitter flavor. The head is the most amazing part of this beer... it never goes away even after a couple of hours! Nice brew.

bottle via trade. pours a very clear orange color. medium white head. slightly tropical but mostly citrus hop nose. some underlying malt sweetness in the nose as well. Taste is moderately sweet with some light fruity hops, not very grapefruit-like. finished with a peppery note and a touch of warming. a little sweet for my taste. not much bitterness either.

Poured into a pint glass there was a nice head, golden color. Grapefruit and floral aroma. First sip was a little sweetness well balanced by hop bitterness. Medium carbonation and a little warmth from the alcohol. All together a very good IPA that I will have again.

Sampled on tap at the brewhouse. A nicely well crafted brew with a mild hop palate and smooth malts. A brew that you can certainly enjoy on a warm summer day.

Bottle to a glass mug. Pours a clear dark yellow color with an off white head that dissipates quickly. Lots of good hop notes on the nose of citrus and pine. Same with the flavors. Nice mouthfeel, and it leans more to the hop bitter than the malt, although thereís a nice balance.
