3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy, light orange pour with soft, white head that doesn’t last long. Flowery bouquet with grapefruit and orange aroma filling in around the edges. Faint smell of toast, plastic. The flavor is full of hops, nicely balanced. Juicy, spicey, citrusy — orange peel, grapefruit, perfume. Not overly bitter. Peppery finish. The medium body is moderately sticky leaving an aftertaste of light floral soap.

Bottle. Pours a light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is tremendous. Floral hop notes abound, with nice citrus undertones. The flavor is a visit to Hop City. Excellent balance of malt to soften the blow of the large amount of hops in the brew. It ends with a spicy finish. Excellent IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear amber. Moderate to large hoppy smell of mostly grassy hops. Flavor is grassy/citrus hops with a decent malt presence. Unfortunately, it also had the hint of spearmint. I liked it, but would have liked it more w/o the mint flavor.

Triple hopped goodness. great malt flavor for an IPA, concidering the amount of hops used. Good beer to give to friends who enjoy a bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice IPA, very great for the price. The pour was typical for the style, standard foamy head with some foamy lacing. The aroma was all grapefruits, man I love that in my IPAs. The flavor was grapefruit and citrus up front with a piney hop finish. The hops in this one were prominent, but not overdone, and supported by a sweet malty base. Alcohol hardly noticeable and the mouthfeel was thin for the style. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

Light gold with a small white head that fades quickly and leaves tiny smidges of lacing. Nose: pine, vanilla, honey, lemon and sugar cookies. Taste is buttered biscuits and pine. Slightly over-carbonated but still smooth. Not bad at all.

12-oz. bottle from artusory. Pours copper with a small off-white frothy head, diminishes to edge, falling lacing. Aroma is fruity (berries), cotton candy and honey, malt (cookie) and a light grassiness. Moderately bitter and acidic, citrus orange flavor, hidden sweetness, hoppy bite and burn. Light bodied and fizzy, spicy and dry palate.

12 oz Bottle (thanks Beerbeast): Pours a nice golden copperish yellow color with a think whispy white head. Aroma is of flowery hops, citrus, and pine. Taste is heavy on the pine and flowers, with less prominent tastes of malts, hops (in general), lime(bold taste) and lemon(initially), saltwater, and a bitter hop finish. somewhere in the taste there is a little caramel and vanilla hidden in there I feel like. Despite the bitter finish its a smooth mouthfeel. Quite tastey.
