3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy, bright golden orange color with a one finger white foam head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Decent retention with some spotty lacing left behind.
Floral perfume-y aroma with sweet booze and a prominent citrus/ tropical fruit presence. Slightly grassy and resinous but the booze and fruit sweetness dominate. Hints of papaya, grapefruit and orange zest along with some resinous oils, pine needle and fresh cut grass. A bit one dimension but still smells pretty good.
Medium body with some dry, grassy bitterness which is stronger than the aroma suggests. Crisp with earthy and grassy saaz-like hops countered by tropical fruit sweetness and a pale malt backbone. Lots of pineapple and grapefruit with some orange peel and lemon juice. Pale biscuit malt backbone with hints of bread and graham cracker. Really nice with a little alcohol burn in the back end but overall the ABV is decently masked. Well balanced, flavorful and very easy to drink. Nice beer!

This was a decent surprise for me - really nice ipa! Citric notes of sweet grape fruit, orange and tangerine combined with some tropical fruit and peach. Both refreshing and complex.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper in color with an average head but goid lacing. Fresh and clean aroma. Very balanced as IPAs go, giving the hop room to express itself without over powering the palate.

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.

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.
