Bottle at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is mild pine, citrus. Taste is clean and crips IPA, maybe a bump up from an APA. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Piney, sprucey hops are followed by bright fruits (mango, peach), sustained by hay and honey for a well-rounded, if a bit medicinal, aroma. The mouthfeel is moderately syrupy and adequately fizzy. The taste is bitter, with residual sugary sweetness for a dry, astringent finish. Flavors are pine, mango, citrus, and some interesting sweet/herbal notes: eucalyptus, honey, turbinado sugar, and very light molasses notes. Delicious.

A good IPA smooth easy to drink, has the right combination of malts and hops not overly bitter would recommend.

A litte hint of mustard in the aroma that is present in the malts as well. Piney hops in the finish. Tastes like an English barleywine.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is my favorite IPA. If you like grapefruit & citrus tastes & smells in your beer, you’ll probably like this. It is my go-to beer during football season.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2015 Lighter fare pale ale. Not near add amber as most, taste was great but short lived. Should make this a candle scent though

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent.
Very simple and generic/plain...the hops don’t really jump out and they’re just the usual grapefruit-resin variety...nothing else at all going on in the nose. Ok flavor balance but rather abrasive and citric. Meh.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
L: Pours a darkish gold with a huge foamy white head that sticks to the glass.
S: a tonne of tropical and citrus up front, grapefruit, guava, pineapple, but this gives way to a pleasant wheaty earthy aroma, hay.
T: a full-flavoured wheat base, with modest bitterness and hop taste, great balance.
F: it has a chewy earthiness and a soft creamy-like feel, but retains a crispness and dry end, making you drink it fast. Can’t taste that ABV.
O: a stellar beer, as good as I had remembered from some time ago.

12 ounce bottle. Yellow gold color. Large rocky white head. Big fragrant citrus hop nose. Fruity tropical fruit malty flavor. Notes of melon, papaya and vanilla. Complex spicy hops in midtaste. Citrusy and fruity. Some booziness and tangy malt in finish. Quite nice indeed.
