3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Old Chicago. Pretty bland I thought. SOme floral hops, slightly bitter, malty balance detracts from the hops.

12oz bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a nice white head of sticky lace. Aroma is fairly subtle, but indicates some hop bitterness. The flavor is far more hop-forward, with resiny bitter hops that hold on well into the finish. Enjoyable.

Bottle - Pours a hazy golden with a creamy head. Aromas of grapefruit and peach. Aromas carry through in the taste with some bitterness, but flavors are muddled. Finish is a bit soapy.

Very good IPA. Not as much of a bite and very smooth. Drank on beach at Banzai Pipeline

This is a very drinkable IPA. Great flavor, descent balance with the malts and hops. Good stuff.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
nose: pomelo...like scratching the skin and inhaling.
palate: think of a buttery, over-hopped pilsner and you have this. it’s quite delicious. clean, minerally, citrusy, with a distinct dry and bitter mexican sweet lime flavor...but without the sweetness.

I have never commented on a bottle before, besides Orval, but this really is thing of beauty and worthy of apraisal. The beer pours nicely in the glass as well. We are dealing with a quite aggresively hopped IPA that balances good, but not great with the malts. Refreshing, though.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice clear light honey color with a 2 finger head. Aroma of citrus, and sweet tropical fruit. Flavor matches with addition of light maltyness and a bit of pine. Very refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized light white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was hoppy. The crisp clean mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish hoppy aftertaste. The semi-sharp flavor contained notes of hops. An OK brew just nothing special.
