3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice golden copper pour with a nice white head. Aroma of floral citrusy hops, with some nice fruity esters and malt. Taste is spicy fruity hoppiness, some light lemon with some sweet malt. Has a light to medium body with very nice carbonation, and a nice crisp mouth feel. Finish has a nice citrusy floral hops, with some fruity spicy character and some maltiness for balance, ending with a nice hoppy bite. Overall a surprisingly good crisp summer IPA.

This is the last of the "sumpin" beers I have tried, strangely enough. The aroma is earthy, musty, floral. The appearance is a slightly translucent amber color, white head. The flavor is earthy, caramel, some pine. The finish is floral and pine hops. Medium in body, slightly thin. Not bad.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2012 12oz bottle. Pours semi-clear orange-yellow with a small egg shell head, very good lacing. Smell is of hops, floral, and citrus. Taste is tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, a little caramel, and a touch of wood bark. End is very hoppy but not over bitter. The dankest beer ever tried.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle. Served in a tulip glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is citrusy hops (grapefruit, tropical fruit, lemon peel), floral hops and a bit of sweet malt. The taste is similar to the aroma, but thereís the addition of some honey flavors, pine hops and wheat. I donít think this beer is made with honey, but it seems to me that thereís a honey-like sweetness noticable. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit creamy and smooth and has good carbonation. Itís very easy and enjoyable to drink, too. I think this is a pretty good brew, itís definitely worth a try!

Bottle bought at GBBF 2011. A golden/amber coloured pour with a medium white fluffy head on top. Lovely aroma of tropical fruit, hops. Tastes hoppy, fruity, malty, pine. A proper American IPA, right up my street, love this brewery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slighty cloudy golden color with puffy white head. The nose is medium with big grapefruit and gooseberries. The citrus and berry notes continue on the palate. Semi sweet finish without being super heavy.
