3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark copper-orange color with a thin off-white head that makes a nice thick creamy head if roused. Nice minty grapefruity nose with light pepper component. Citric flavor with light malts below and moderate hop finish. Not nearly as aggressive as it smells, but well done overall.

Bottle from IrishboyThanks!
Pours a decent but average orange with a nice head of white. Nice aroma of straw-infused pine with hints of grapefruit and apricot. Flavor is very malty, with a nice infusion of grapefruit to balance out the cereal. Average mouthfeel. Great "Light" IPA.

Courtesy of jayg. Pours a deep clear gold with copper core and off white head. The aroma has a nice pine hop character followed by some malt sweetness. The taste has a decent load of pine hop bitterness. I also get a mild maltiness hidden under there somewhere. The taste is mostly pine hop bitterness though. It ends pretty darn thin.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Courtesy jayMFg. Pours a slightly hazy orange, with a small white head. Big, juicy, citrus hops and grapefruit dominate the aroma. Smells like it could almost be a IIPA. The flavor is obviously monster hops, but not so overpowering where it dominates everything else. Pretty good semblance of balance and there was a decent malt presence, most notibly up front. Solid effort from these guys.

Clear amber, thin head, nice lacing. Intense floral hop aroma with spruce. Very nice, aggressive hoppiness. Clean finish. A bit thin bodied. Very good IPA.

Nice sweet malt and orange aroma.
Taste is very similar with a nice floral hop bite.
Very nice IPA. I’d usually write a longer review, but I am just not feeling it tonight. This is a quaffable IPA with a nice long finish.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a honey colour with an off-white head that leaves good lacing and fades to a solid foamy cap. The nose has that wonderful grapefruit hop citrus and pine smell that comes across as very fresh. The flavour is, again, grapefruit citrus and a sweet toffee malt backbone with some floral and fragrant notes in the finish. The finish is also marked by citrus and is slightly dry with moderate palate duration. It has a medium-thin body and tingly carbonation.
