4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a Lagunitas pint glass. Color is a citrusy orange with a generous cream colored head. Aroma is primarily hops: citrusy, floral, grassy, with some sweet malts in the background. Flavor matches well with hops in the forefront and some sweet malts in the background. Palate is smooth with only slight hop bitterness Overall a damn good IPA - this is how I like them - plenty of hop flavor without the extreme bitterness. Too many brewers seem to think that IPAís just need to be bitter and donít really need any flavor.

12oz bottle 3/23/11 (Courtesy of RSRIZZO)-48į in Tulip-Pours a light orangish amber with a big loose white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Taste of the same with more hops and citrus. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and easy to drink. Nice IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to EZant Via EZ liquors. Pours out a lively carbonated golden/straw color with a small off white head. Aroma is of citrus, pine and some fruity sweetness in there also. Taste is citrus hops, light tropical fruits, smooth, light sweet malts, and a nice bitter finish. Extremely smooth drinking, this is one hell of a session. How come Iíve never had this before?

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2011 Its really like a wheat IPA. It smells amazing with a real juicy hop smell with some sweetness as well. The taste is exploding with juicy hops and ending with a very nice citrus and pine bitter finish that really makes this quite an amazing IPA. The wheat is also detectable in the end that finishes with the hop bitter finish but the hops kind of rule in this one. You canít taste the alcohol at all its masked so well by the sweetness from the wheat malts and hops. Great beer

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Hazy marigold white thin white head. Nice yeastiness and hops, with some light sweet grapes. Loads of hoppiness thatís soft, grapefruit and citrus, on a very soft light body. Very clever brew, and great drinking. Accessible and tasty, and the abv doesnít come close to registering. Lovely.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A crisp and refreshing fruity session IPA. Clean and pleasant beer
How: Bottle 12oz. Consumed fresh one month after purchase. Bottle sent to me by mcberko, thanks a lot Matt
The look: Clear orangey-golden body topped by a persistent small white head
In long: Nose of dried orange cubes with notes of fresh citrusy fruits. Nothing intense in this nose but it is nonetheless clean and crisp. Taste follows the same pattern, clean and crisp. White bread, dried light color fruits, condensed apricots juice, mildly bitter grapefruits and oranges, light spiciness in the hops. Smooth aggressive bitterness that is far from aggressive. The beer is overall not intense at all. Not a very tasty beer, this is more of a refreshing session IPA. That beer label with the bizarre big-breasted chick is kind of weird. But Iíve masturbated to weirder stuff.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours amber with thick foamy white head and lacing. Traditional note of juniper...and nothing else. I mean, take some pine needles, crush them in your hand, and sniff. Not eat the pine needles. This is the taste.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I poured a 12 oz bottle into my tulip glass...
The liquid was a pale, golden, amber color with a bubbly whit head that clung to the glass. I took a sniff and first could smell grapefruit, then pineapple and sugary sweet malt. When you take a sip there is an orangey citrus bite that soon gets dominated by a sweetness, there are some background flavors of grapefruit and pine. The beer is kind of thick, it has low carbonation and is warming from the alcohol. This is a well-rounded beer, I would drink it anytime.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a pale hazy golden orange color with one finger creamy white head. Aroma of pungent oily hops, grapefruit, pine, sugars, and fruit. Taste of hops, pine, grapefruit, and some grain. Much more hoppy than a typical Wheat beer. Mouthfeel is light bodied and oily with good carbonation.
