I tell you what, I almost didnít purchase this because it was rated an 88 on here. Good thing I bought it! I knew from the moment I opened it and my nose was greeted by grapefruit and citrus Iíd enjoy it. Itís a great IPA. Pours a honey gold color, a finger of white tiny bubbly head. As I drink it, it has great lacing. The nose is lots of grapefruit, lemon, orange, some sweet bready malts, and pine needle. Itís well balanced, not a whole lot of bitterness on the toungue, and the sweetness of the malts really comes through here. The description says full-bodied, but Iíd say itís medium bodied. High drinkability. A well crafted IPA. As far as a standard IPA goes, this makes my top 10 for sure.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Trineeshís wedding beach barbeque thing. More to my liking than the pale ale: only a smidgen stronger at 6%, a lighter but not really less tasty malt layer and a reasonable hoppy bitterness and flavour. This was more of a generic crafty hop flavour, perhaps vaguely citrus fruit, than a standout or unusual flavour (the website proclaims a blend of Galaxy/Citra/Simcoe/Millenium), but it was cleanly executed and actually a bit smashable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #2172 - Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with citrus overtones, grapefruit, lemony, toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, dry piney hops and roast malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.
