3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2013 Pours an orange color with the smell of citrus. Although not my favorite type of beer I’ll try to be objective. Very hoppy and the taste of citrus orange was the most prevalent flavor. Very bitter, but not bad for an IPA

Pours a nice copper color with a thick long lasting white head. Hop aroma just billows out of the glass, like sticking your nose in a bag of hops. A few more whiffs and I get some malty caramel notes, also. Taste is nice and hop bitter. Not a lot of malt, but enough to balance out the the powerful hops. Finishes very clean with just a touch of the hop bitterness. Very smooth and drinkable.

Pours a completely clear light amber color with a thick creamy head of 3 fingers. Aroma of spicy hop. Really nice aroma. Flavor is typical of a west coast IPA. Spicy, pungent yet crisp. I haven’t had a standard ipa in awhile. Something seems a little off, but that could just be me. A nice IPA. I might have to revist again in the future.

Golden color with a white head. Aroma is dominated by some nice citrus and assorted hops. Flavor is a nice hoppy mix of citrus and some floral/pine, plus a fairly sweet malt backing. Pretty good.

Bottle from whole foods in san fran. Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Citrus and hops in the nose. Grapefruit and apricot dominate the flavour, before leading to a refreshingly crisp finish. This is excellent stuff.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz - Aroma is citrus hops and a summer wind through a pine forest. Pours cloudy orange with medium head and good lacing. Flavor is interesting with the pine, citrus and earthy hops blending together with caramel and some sweet malt to balance it out. Palate is crisp and smooth. Just different enough to stand out and pretty tasty too.
