Pours golden with nice head. Very heavy citrus, some pine and acidity. Flavor follow aroma, with strong hop bite. Light for a double, but very good. Like this much better than Lenny's.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 1 Pt 6 Fl Oz bottle on 8/10/2012. Pours a medium to dark golden with a big fluffy white head. Has a very pleasant floral, fruity, resiny hop aroma. The flavour follows suit, with sweet citrus fruit (especially orange and mandarin) up front, followed by a big sticky, resiny, piney hop bitterness, with just a touch of grapefruit. Not too much maltiness is evident, but this is none the less a lovely, well balanced fruit/hop driven IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate caramel, fruit, citrus, and pineapple. It pours a mostly transparent golden-orange with just a touch of haze. It has one finger soapy off-white head that fades to a thin film within a minute or so. There’s some real nice webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate caramel. There’s some light-moderate fruitiness in the background. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit, lemon, and a touch of pine. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, too much caramel and not enough hops...although with no bottle dating, there’s a good chance it’s due to age.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle, light hay golden color with off white head that lasts a long time. Citrus and great earthy pine coming from the fresh pour. Hay and some hay malt. Medium carbonation, with initial sweetness quickly balanced with some piney hops moving into fruit, and slight bitterness. Good beer, balance is a little off, but quality.
