Medium gold, clear color.
Full body, smooth, very long palate.
Very bitter, dry, not enough malt fir my taste.
Hop feast. Worth having sometimes.

12oz bottle. Pineapple aroma. Kind of cloudy yellow-copper color. Little lacing. Flavors are juicy grapefruit with a tart pineapple finish. No malts to speak of. Really nice IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.; thanks jmborggren). Looks good; a mostly transparent golden orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of bitter, juicy, and floral hops with a medium-bodied pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Corey! Glowing orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma is slightly caramel malt dominated with pine grapefruit, and tangerine. Much more juicy hop flavor with grapefruits, orange zest, flowers with the malt taking the background. Medium bodied with a lingering bitter hop finish. Pretty tasty.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A solid IPA, nothing special though. Aroma is kind of missing. It’s a dry crisp bitterness that is refreshing.
