4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can. Nice copper hue with soft haze and a sticky sand-colored cap. Awesome nose: juicy grapefruit, mint, a little catty, a splash of sugar-dusted mango and rock candy. In the flavor, burnt sugar is followed by grapefruit pith, pine needles, wet grass and a subtle tropical note, giving way to moderate bitterness in the finish. Creamy medium body; mild peppery CO2. A really tasty IPA with complex hop character and deft balance.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
16 oz can poured. Much thanks to Eric for sending this as a trade extra. Very unexpected. Love it when a beer totally lives up to itís ratings. Pours a thick, cloudy, bright orange color with a bubbly white head. Aroma is very hop forward with some citrus. Flavor is very heavy on the grapefruit. Towards the late finish, itís almost like a big bite of grapefruit. Thick body full of citrus. Has the makeup of my favorite IPAís. Love it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2015 Golden color with citrus and tropical fruit aroma. Taste is grapefruit, citrus rind, tropical fruit, with a perfect malt background. It gets close to a DIPA with itís ABV sweetness and very slight burn. Not quite a 100 in my books, but it is an excellent IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can pour dark gold with copper hue and large ecru head. Nose resin, pine, sticky, papaya. Taste big bitter bite up front, then mostly dank. Strong bitter mid palate but missing the flavors from the aroma. Some caramel malt late. Lasting bitter finish.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1pt can poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Golden amber with a tall frothy cap. Aroma is very strong sweet flowery resin. The flavor is all hops up front with some fruity sweetness in the middle. The finish is extremely bitter and long lasting. This is a great beer but definitely not one for a hops noob.
