4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Location: Growler from Superstar Beverage - Huntington, 9/11/14
Aroma: The nose is resin hops dominant, with plenty of tropical fruit, quite hoppy and very clean
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-orange color with a sheeting white head and nice lacework
Flavor: The flavor is lightly sweet/fruity, but leans much more toward the hop bitter side
Palate: The body is medium, it has a smooth feel, soft carbonation, and a long, dry finish
I thought this was an excellent IPA. It is quite dry and has a really enjoyable flavor. I am quite impressed by this one. It could be quite dangerous at over 7%. This is a very west cost style beer from a very east coast brewery.

Draft at top hops New York. Pours yellow with a half inch of white foam. Leaves a fair amount of lacing. Not a ton on the hops. Lovely grapefruit notes on the tongue. Finishes clean. Nice!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler filled at Big Z. Pours a lightly hazed amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Pleasant aroma of grapefruit with some notes of pine as well. The flavor is abrasively hopped with sharp bitterness overwashing a mild malt backbone. Lots of grapefruit pith. A bit too aggressive for me.

Growler from Big Z. Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma of hop oils, tons of grassy hops (pot hops), tropical fruits and citrus. Flavor of tons of rich hoppy goodness and some citrusy hops as well. Very West Coast IPA and a good one at that.

@ The Ginger Man à Manhattan. En fût. Une bière dorée foncée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez de houblon américain et de malt blond. Une bouche intense de houblon avec une amertume marquée. La texture est parfaite pour soutenir ces houblons.

Tapnat Stagshead. Pours copper with white head that dissipates quickly. Nose of grapefruit and resin. Quite hoppy mostly of grapefruit, some pine, resin, vanilla, grass, some herbs. Quite drying and pretty bitter. Not bad
