3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12-oz bottle. Copper color with a persistent thick head, white with orange lacing. You first notice the nicely hopped aroma as a promise of complexity that will be unfortunately not fulliflled. A very well balanced, very capable IPA. If i had to chose among many macro-brewed IPAs i would pick this one...

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden orange color, not particularly hazy, white head. Aroma is of grassy hops, a hint of citrus. Taste is pine hops, caramel malt, strong hop bitterness, again a hint of citrus at the finish. They come a lot better than this.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy golden amber with small floaties and an average foamy off white head. Aroma of iced tea, some citrus from the hops, caramel malt but really nothing too stand out. Not sure how old this bottle was. Picked it up at the local six pack shop...but I don’t have too much faith in how quickly they turn over products. Onto flavor...pretty much the same iced tea, malt sweetness and some decent hop bitterness. Not much hop flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lagunitas event at the Brickskeller. Clear orange appearance; off-white head with great retention and lacing. Some citrus hops, plastic (?) in the aroma. Slightly off. Medium mouthfeel: floral and citrus hops, one-dimensional, but reasonably tasty and balanced. Light, slightly dry finish, with hints of sugar.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice drinkable IPA. Not to overbearing with anything. Nice easy aroma of citrus, maybe some pine. Nice and crisp, will drink again for sure.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In their 22-ounce bottle. Pours a very dense dark gold color with a foamy white head. Hoppy aroma and big hop bitterness. Medium-bodied, with a dominating hoppy flavor and underlying clean malty flavor. Slight, lasting citrusy char. Visible sediment. Very drinkable.
