This is a great IPA. Not bitter in the least. Slightly cloudy golden color. Creamy texture. Apricot taste in the background. Again, not bitter. Head stays to the end. My favorite IPA.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of citra hops amber coloured, not much head. Bitter taste with a bitter palate. Not much complexity to it.

Flowery aroma and a golden color. Hoppy front end with it lingering on the palate. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle -
I really wish this was available in 12oz bottles/6-packs because this would rival SN IMO, and is a better option. An aggressively hopped beer, balanced by a nice showing of malts and barely balanced enough to call it a pale ale. Aroma is incredibly citrusy and it doesnít stray too far from that. Clean, refreshing bitterness on the palate, lots of citrus and hop resin, subtle piney sap too. The malts provided seems to also give it a tropical fruit-like taste at times. My only issue is the price, and Iím sure thereís tons of hops used in the beer but because of the price I donít get to visit this as often as I would like.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: pours clear deep golden, frothy pillows of white head. Nice lacing. Fresh citrus, grapefruit, fruity hops, some herbal burn on the nose. Light to medium bodied with resinous dryness, grassy and orange hops, just enough caramel malt sweetness. Comes off really fresh greenery. Pretty good

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
651mL. Pours a clear, deep orange. Weaker foam. Nose is butterscotch, vanilla, rich marzipan, yellow cake. Taste is big butterscotch, orange peel, sugary tea. Thicker, rich. Not really bright or even that Citra forward. Just a nice, juicy malt backbone. Perhaps not so fresh. Still, yummy.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Itís got hop-intensity and malt-density. Huge West Coast hoppy nose, sweet marmalade malt palate, refreshing finish. An excellent example of the West Coast IPA style.
