3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a copper orange with a one finger off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, cat piss, candied pine cones, sweet malts, light tropical fruits, caramel, and some buttery diactyl. Taste is citrus, candied pine, sweet malts, light tropical fruits, peach, caramel and a little diactyl. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi modestly, moderately bitter, medium long, slighty buttery finish. Overall, a pretty nice IPA that is brought down by some unfavorable diactyl notes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The 7.5% ABV 22oz bomber pours with a crystal clear gold body that supports a tall nearly tight light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up some shallow resiny hop notes, mild grapefruit citrus hops, a bit of mango fruitiness and then some sweet malts and a few slivers of buttery diacetyl. The taste is similar with bitter grapefruit like citrus hops and some mango tropical fruit swimming in some sweet maltiness. To midway it gets a little diacetyl like as the resiny pine hops surge forward. Nice hoppy bitter IPA but the slim buttery notes get in the way slightly. OK stuff.

Pours hazy orange little soapy white head. Great smell of bubble gum orange peel, pine sap. Has a pleasant cascade hop flavor which is kind of grassy fresh.Wonderful citrusy piny floral rolls over the tongue with a bitter zing lingering.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle. Clear golden/light amber with an off white head and lacing. Aroma is cat pee, pine, citrus and floral hops, pretty much all hops. Flavor is bitter hops with faint malt presence and light dry alcohol. Medium body with a long bitter finish. Fantastic beer, loaded with hops and super drinkable. I love this brewery!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp copper coloured body with a clear copper and orange glow and a nice, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of fresh hops, resin, alcohol, pine and a good dose of malt - noticeable, sticky and sweet, as well. Medium-bodied; Assertive grapefruity and very piney flavoured hops up front with a resin finish and a deep almost nutty flavour with a good amount of malt and a subdued pineapple and passionfruit sweetness at the end. Aftertaste is quite bitter, but nice - the flavours show well and are dominated by the hops then the malt, then the bitterness - not much sweetness or fruits to savour in this one. Overall, a good IPA, not stellar or as good as I expected with this score...still great to try on the other side of this country. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Total Wine in Tustin, California on 02-May-2013 for US$6.99 sampled at home in Washington on the first day of government shutdown here in the city on 01-October-2013.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear gold color with a frothy head. Aroma is piney citrucy hops grapefruit and Orange peell and sweet caramel malt. Taste follows the aroma with a good amount of hop bitterness in the back end and a sweet subtle caramel malt balancing it out.. This is a hop foreword beer with a good malt backbone. Very good ipa!! Seriously a contender for top 5 favorite of mine.
