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.

12oz bottle. Pours a nice clean orange with a small white head. Aroma of big grapefruit, orange, and tropical fruit citrus. A truly juicy hop profile on this one. This is one hell of a fruity IPA, almost a hybrid between a DIPA and IPA. Balanced all around and not boozy at all. Really hoppy, juicy, and fruity with a slight malt backbone. Dangerous.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2011 Clear gold, large foamy white head. Aroma of pineapple, grass, herb, lemon. Taste is nice, lots of citrus but less bitterness than expected. Malt presence is higher than most IPA’s. Very good beer.... Another bottle. Aroma is nice and light, very floral, little citrus. Taste has a good balance of lemony bitter and caramel malt sweetness. Nice crisp and refreshing beer.

Sublime aroma of flowers and lime. Discretely bitter, short lasting after taste. Very smooth and has good hints of grass and lime in the flavour

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a nice deep gold with a little bit of head and mild aromas of caramel, pears, apple juice and honey. Flavor is decidedly fruit and sugar-based with an underpowered hops punch. Apples and pears and honey come through clearly, but then things turn a little hoppy in the aftertaste. A bit of resin (not really pine, though) with a little passion fruit and tropical edge. It is a pretty sugary IPA, that’s sure, but it’s solid and good enough for February.

12 oz bottle, into a pint glass. a very clear golden color with a medium sized bubbly white head, huge lacing! aroma is a medley of hoppy goodness. Taste is sweet citrus, grapefruit and a mixture of citrus hops. Also some pils malt. flavor is very layered with hops and has a great complexity. An IPA I could easily drink a 12 pack of. Thanks for sharing it with me AirForceHops.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Horribly astringent and bitter with the aroma and flavor of pine sol. There are no "wheaty" or "smooth" characteristics of this beer as the manufacturer’s description claims. It’s 100% bitterness.

Very nice. Excellent, citrusy aroma, great hop flavor with a bit of alcohol coming through and a touch of spiciness at the finish. Somewhat average mouthfeel. Overall this is a tasty beer and one that I would certainly recommend.

One of my favorite IPAs, smells awesome, floral and citrus, nicely carbonated, you can taste the yeast nicely, taste is hoppy, but balanced well enough with malt so that is does not take away from the hops, light, fluffy, and refreshing but has enough taste and body to be very flavorful. Dangerously drinkable. Well done.
