3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can into plastic cup sitting at the pool. Orangy-golden color with white head. Aroma of heavy piney/citrus hops with some light malt. Taste is a nice mix of fruity, citrus and piney hop bitterness with light toasty malt. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth, well-balanced with lingering bitter finish. Nice IPA.

On tap at the Jax Mellow Mushroom. The best of the lot we drank that day. I like this brewery! Very rich creamy beer, beautiful hop aroma and thick head with fantastic lacing. Yes to another one.

Pleasant but not overly hopped IPA. Good on a hot day. Not quite as good as my standard from stone brewery

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
can @ Grassroots Natural Market / Jacksonville FL --- Clear deep orange-copper amber, solid smooth white head, sheets of lace. Aroma of mild hops and malt. Taste is caramel malt that adds citrus hops and carbonation on the swallow, moving smartly to a finish in which the hops dominate at first, but as it fades, the malt can be tasted in the background. A solid, big-bodied, cleansing, tasty IPA. Recommended.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap at the brewery (from May 2012 notes)
Poured a crystal clear amber with a very durable off-white head that left good lacing.
Aroma and flavor reflect more piney than citrusy hops; so not my ideal. Some herbal aspects mid-taste on. Moderately bitter (for style). Body is smooth but a tad too light. Very good carbonation.
O: a solid IPA with no apparent flaws but not particularly outstanding in any way.

Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with just off-white head. Citrus, floral pine and grassy notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice resinous hop bite and a bit of hop spice.

Can at home while visiting Jacksonville. Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Big fresh piney lemon hoppy aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Piney resinous stuff, lemon, grapefruit, light lemon sherbet... Not particularly complex but solid - nice bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is actually a decent East Coast West Coast IPA. Not malty but has an IPA bite. Also has a decent mouthfeel and lasting head with good lacing. Aroma is very nice and hoppy. This isn’t a citrus or cat urine hop flavor just more bittering. Worth drinking.

Taste: grapefruit. Heavy citrus. Lemon. Pine. Grass.
Feel: dry on the front end. Nice bitterness to it but not overwhelming. Medium carbonation.
