Clear golden with a medium off white head. Hoppy nose with grapefruit, pine and pale malt. Flavour had grapefruits, plenty of hops, pine and pale malts and it came out bone dry and bitter. Solid IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on 7/12/2010. This India Pale Ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is biscuty malts and grapefruity hops. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are caramel, bready and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy. Nice balance. A malty IPA, yet there is a nice citrusy hop bite. Good carbonation. Nice dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, dry and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Pours a nice brownish orange with a large fluffy white head. Aroma is malt forward with some grapefruit, pine and citrus. Flavor is malt, caramel, some light but well integrated hop bitterness, citrus. spices, well balanced and easy to drink. Nicely done IPA.

Pours a transparent medium orange. More hops than other California IPAs - this is more refreshing than others Iíve had. Really good. Citrus and caramel dominate, with some good balance.

Bomber. Sucks to start of Friday evening with a negative post and dissapointing IPA. Aroma lacks any nose an IPA should have. Smells somewhat piney, on the verge of pure funkiness. Flavor is similiar. Mainly caramel malts and lacking on hop bite or flavor. Nothing to brag about on the finish either. Not a good representation of an IPA. Maybe I purchased a bad bottle??

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured into pint glass. Mild aroma, nothing strong. Nice color that is dark amber, very little head. It taste a little under carbonated, and possibly not fresh. I think this is my first experience with this beer, so I donít know what it might be like if very fresh. It was a gift from a friend, purchased at Cost Plus, so Iím thinking it might have been sitting on a warm shelf awhile. Might try again if known fresh and rerate.

SD trip, Karl Strauss LaJolla, sampler, had these while having a larger DIPA, flavors and ratings may be rough: Nice light citrus/piney hop nose from dry hoping but really boring flavor esp compared to the DIPA at its side.

One of the best IPA on the market. Canít get enough of it. The aroma is unique and catchy. The overall drinkablity is great.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright citrus aroma right after the top is popped. Fades to a floral aroma after that. Pours a dark orange. Bitterness is fairly mild but does linger. A good session ups
