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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ambrata chiara, leggermente velata, schiuma bianca, pannosa, buona ritenzione.
Predominante aroma di agrumi fedele allo stile di riferimento.
Al palato si ripresentano prepotentemente le note agrumate e successivamente viene fuori il malto che rende la bevuta meno amara; note erbacee ed agrumate sul finale.
Molto beverina, corpo leggero, leggermente acquosa, carbonatazione media.
Una buona IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Easter. Clear golden pour with white foam. Surprisingly nice aroma. Some pineapple, lots of orange, and a bit of pithy grapefruit. Slightly grassy and piney as well. Nice malt malt profile underneath. Kind of toasty. Thereís a nice bitterness to the flavor, but not overly sharp or anything. A lot of grapefruit and orange rind. Slight tropical sweetness and a touch of melon. Hints of caramel and toasted grain. Decent sweetness without being overwhelming.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber with a long-lasting 2-finger white head, bands of lace. Taste is malt that is quickly pushed aside by strong pine hops. The hops are dominant enough to keep all other possibilities at bay. Okay for hopheads, but not much if one is looking for balance, complexity, or anything other than hops.
