3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a very nice 2 finger dense off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Some nice soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, orange rind, pine, mango, herbal, floral, grass, earth, caramel, and spiciness. Pretty nice aromas with good balance and strength. Quite dank and resinous feeling. Taste of grapefruit, pine, herbal, grass, orange rind, floral, lemon zest, earth, mango, caramel, wheat, and piny spiciness. Good amount of spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pine, caramel, mango, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a while. Malt balance is a little weak, as this leans much more towards a pretty astringent lasting bitterness. Some pretty good flavor balance; but a little high on the spicy pine resin in my opinion. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a good IPA. A little too piny and spicy; but has some good hop flavor complexity and balance. Smooth and enjoyable to sip on with some intense hop flavor.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beautifully colored copper beer with a huge 2+ inch head that holds to 3/4" inch of suds after settling. The aroma is enticing with tons of floral hop character and spicy and citrus backgrounds. The flavor is bitter sweet hoppy erring on the bitter side in a real good way. There’s plenty of malt but they kept it out of the way of the hops. It goes down real easy and the palate is nothing other than satisfying. This is easily one of the best beers.

Wow, it is beautiful to look at a lovely yellow/orange cloudy appearance. An aroma of mild piney hops and citrus. Flavor similar to every other IPA, disappointing, a little grapefruit and maltiness in its medium body. A dry, piney, hoppy and citrusy finish, same old IPA.

Bottle. Pours a rich gold-orange with a high, large-grained, offwhite head. the nose is herbal, with lime and cucumber overtones. Intense herbal notes on the front of the tongue, followed up with caramel and toffee; there’s a touch of smoke on the close, like burning sage smudge. Very well balanced, with a long finish. I LIKE this beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a brandy snifter. Appearance is a lighter copper color with a white head of foam. Aroma is somewhat earthy, grassy hop profile. Taste is bitter and earthy. Not too much in the way of a malt profile. All hops, but still enjoyable.

Total Wine, Fairfax 650ml ($5): Pours a copper color with a nice big head. Aroma is citrus hops, grapefruit-like: very west-coast, but not extreme. Taste is similar. Medium body. Proper carbonation. Relatively easy-drinking. Hoppiness is moderate. Bitterness is present. Aftertaste is acceptable. Beer is good.

From a 22 oz bottle poured a coppery color with a small white head. Definitely well turned out IPA aroma. Initially the taste is pedestrian IPA but then it blooms into a full blown palate ripping hop singing beauty!
