This was my entry into IPAs. Great beer. Pine and citrus aroma with a golden/pale color and frothy white/tan head. Tastes slightly sweet upfront with a short bitter finish. Overall, this is one of my favorite IPAs so far in the few I have had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Hopscotch and served in my GI IPA Tulip: Coppery golden hue with a pretty good but fading head, okay lace. The aroma has notes of pine, resin, dank, pineapple, grapefruit, mango, pepper, biscuity and caramel malts with a bit of aspirin and metal. The taste is rather bitter with some citrus backed by some sweet caramel and dry pale grains. Hint of hop spice, garlic, green onions and a bit of tea-baggy astringency. Lively and aggressive mouth feel with a tinny aftertaste. Hint of brash alcohol. Overall it is a very solid brew but not quite all that IMO. The hop bitterness seems a bit raw and too high alpha acid for the refreshment I required.

Amber pour, almost orange. Medium head with little to no lacing. Malty aroma. Bitter front, middle, and end. Hoppy front and middle. Brief hint of sweetness at end that is quickly consumed by bitterness. Tastes woody, lightly roasted, of evergreens. Solid IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 16-oz can from trade with Eric - thanks bud! Slightly hazy rich gold/orange pour with a fluffy white head. Huge hop aroma of pine resin - somewhat dank. Crisp palate from the carbonation and dry hop bite. Taste is bold resin hops, and a little citrus sweetness. Great brew!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a slightly murky classic golden color with a small, pure white head. Nice bouquet consisting of citrus, grass, and a little pine. Mouthfeel is wet, yet cottony. Very smooth. Very nice, unobtrusive, yet hop-heavy, but still well-balanced IPA. Very drinkable for a 7.2 IPA. Thanks to my hookup in Texas for sending me this one!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can: Pale copper pour with a light haze, creamy sand color head. Nice thick lacing. Sweet aroma of citrus and caramel, a little piney too. The taste is where this beer comes through for me. Very flavorful hops. Mostly florals, but pine and citrus swirls around too. Malt stays in the background and it finishes very well. Smooth throughout, seemless comes to mind. Scoots well past very enjoyable and right to excellence.
