3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aggressive pour left a three-finger head above an orange/amber body with lots of rising carbonation. Moderate pine and citrus - grapefruit - hops aromas, but not overpowering. Hops flavors are strong, but immediately countered by a light maltiness. Hops bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, less carbonation than expected.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2010 Orange-blonde with a thick rocky head. Aromas of citron, pine and spices. Snappy bitter flavor. Very fizzy on the palate. This has been a go-to session beer for me for a while. One of the best Bay Area IPAs for sure.

Clear, golden-amber with lasting head. Fresh citrus-grapefruit, and mild caramel notes. Mild sweet malt caramel and citrus-grapefruit hops. Refreshing, with the expected bitter finish.

An okay IPA. More ingredients than usually = a bit over average, which means itís delicious and nice with its fresh wellhopped flavor. Nice and more..

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber with medium white slowly dissipating head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops with some caramel and pine. Decently balanced with enough malt to mix with the hops that do slightly win out in the end. Not an overpowering bitter finish, a little dry with notes of grapefruit & earthy hops.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I havenít rated this one yet? This was recommended to me b the guys at Willow Bend Liquors in Lutz, FL. Compared to the Dogfish varieties 60/90. An incredible IPA with a fresh and perfectly intense hoppy taste balanced by malts. This is smooth and refreshing. An incredibly good IPA if not one of the best on the market.
