3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A- Pours a deep, cloudy orange hue with a 1.5 finger, frothy head that fades with quite a bit of lacing.
S- Very grainy, caramel, slight hints of grassiness.
T- Starts off very bready which leads into a wave of hops and a nice, crisp, bitter finish.
M- Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation.
D- A refreshing IPA. Doesn’t stand out a whole lot but I would revisit.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber/orange, off white head and good lacing. Pine and citrus aromas. Pine flavours dominate the front palate while a huge dose of sweet malt does balance it somewhat. Perhaps a touch big for me but not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12floz bottle into a tulip. Pours a lovely golden yellow with a finger of bubbly white head. Nose is really fruity and delicious. I get a really strong mandarin citrus component, as well as a bit of a floral note, some peach and just a hint of sweetness. On the palate you get a big hit of that pine and grapefruit from the Chinook, a bit of bread, some sweet caramel, just a touch of the mandarin from the nose, and a nice bitter finish that lingers. Body is medium and mouthfeel is pretty rich. Leaves some decent lacing. Great balance, but I would have liked more of the aroma to carry through to the flavour.

Bottle, 355ml. A clear amber beer with a small white head. Aroma is of hops, malt, citrics and maybe chlorine (reminds me of when I’m close to a pool). Taste is bitter with some carbonation. Medium bodied, astrigent and dry. Strong hoppy finish with a hint of mint.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma carico di fiori d’arancia, molto dolce sulle prime. scorza di agrumi,parecchio pompelmo, ed un po’ di pino nel sottofondo. Attacco di pane dolce, watery come tessitura ma non slegata. Amaro da scorza di agrumi, leggermente il pino. Un po’ di ritorno alcolico, l’unico difetto di una birra che piace e si lascia bere. Molto ben fatta. Carbonatazione ai minimi termini, liscia, ben bilanciata.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2012 Initial rating: 30th Mar, 2010. On tap at the Karl Strauss Restaurant/Bar at Universal City. Served in a typical tumbler glass this beer presents orange with a less than average head. Aroma is floral and citric; quite pleasant. Carbonation is less than expected, however this allows the yeast profile to shine through too much in my opinion. There is an acceptable amount of bitterness to this beer, however the yeast aftertaste present does not leave a satisfying finish. Would try this beer again in the bottle instead, but not in a hurry.
Re-Rate 5th Oct. 2012. Bottle from dans. bb June 2013. Decent off white head and resilient lace. Floral, citrus and pine aromas with a touch of grain. Medium-high carbonation, medium body - lightly chewy malts with a generous bitterness on the finish. Just like the tap example, the lingering yeasty veg remains amongst of touch of toast and toffee. A bit better in the bottle.
