3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Falling Rock. Pours dark reddish brown with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, pine and floral hops. Taste is heavy caramel, piny hops, grapefruit. Medium body, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Nice IIPA, but to sweet to be really good. The hops is there, but the malt base is to sweet. Not bad in anyway tho. 040311

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2011 Tap at the Graduate in Davis, CA. Pours dark amber with a creamy beige head that did some ring lace. Aroma is fruity in an unusual way. Med body. Flavor is very hoppy. Almost a berry flavor initially. Then it seems spice/yeasty in a light way. Finally seems to settle on pine. It’s quite bitter, and the flavor is intense. There seems to be heavy malt, but the hop masks it well. Excellent ale.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
4 ounce sample on tap at the Davis Graduate. The initial aroma is super citrus orange. Smells like orange soda, actually. There is some moderate ethanol retronasally, but the orange soda smell makes up for this. Transparent orange-copper body with a small, white head. Starts with tons of grapefruity hops and accompanying harsh bitterness. A little sticky in the middle. Finishes with more bitter, herbal, grapefruity hops. A big, brash beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a ballsy beer. The aroma was very strong of a myriad of hops. The pour was thick and the beer stuck to the sides of the glace. Lacing was impressive. Taste was what you would expect and was a floral flavor explosion.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2012 On cask at Spuyten Duyvil, NYC. Great beer. Aromas of apricot, caramel, and grass. Taste is bitter, and it lingers for a very long finish. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Orange, cloudy, with a thin head.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2014 On tap at Stone. The Arnold of IPAs. Thick, full and muscular. Lots of pine and citrus on the nose and in the mouth. Good full sticky body. Easy to drink. Quite malty but never too cloyingly sweet. Can be a bit overbearing like the Guvernator.
