3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 US.fl.oz. bomber poured into a pint glass...
Appearance - Light amber body, with a very rich creamy beige head. Great head retention and amazing lacing! Looks very good for an American IPA!
Smell - The aroma is not very intense, but then again, the bottle I had was fairly old. Grapefruit, oranges, pine, a bit of flowers, and some nice bready notes on the nose.
Taste - The taste starts out with quite a good hop bite, with grapefruit-like bitterness and some pine. Then comes a surprisingly nice mild sweetness. Some caramel, some bread, and some toasted malts are also present. Finishes in a slightly dry and bitter after-taste.
Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium body to it. Low in carbonation. No real hints of alcohol, yet it may give a warming sensation to your body.
Drinkability - Goes down smoothly. For an American IPA, this is a very sessionable beer. Drinkable enough for a beginner hop-head, yet not too light or lacking on flavour.

Very complex flavor. Some fruit tones mixed with a bit of spiciness. It finishes with a touch of bitterness. All and all nice IPA with a moderate ABV level that gives a nice kick.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: this beer pours with a very large beige head, takes a bit to pour it down, has a very nice density, the beer is a very clear golden color
Aroma: bread, egg, kind of faint,
Taste: citrus, very light grain, bitter, perhaps some alcohol, some malty caramel
Palate: soft carbonation, bitter aftertaste, medium mouthfeel
Overall: not bad but not my favorite ipa by a long shot, needs more from the hops than just bitterness, strong malt background but still bitter

Keg at The Hanging Bat.
Soft white head, good lacing. Clear amber body. Nose full of tropical fruit, pine and fresh grass. Flavour is bitter grapefruit, light berries, grassy finish. Crisp, fresh. Medium carbonation, good mouthfeel, fairly thick. Dangerously drinkable.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle poured in a chalice.
A: Pours a clean orange golden color with a small beige head. Good retention and many lacings left
S: Smells like a traditional American craft IPA. Very citric, earthy and mainly grassy smell of fresh hops.
T: Follows the nose. Deliciously bitter and refreshing. You can feel some malts and yeasts but its trademark is, of course, the hops. Very good bitter stuff
M: Light body, medium carbonation and nice bitter and grassy aftertaste
D: High. To be drunk in gallons (preferentially, sitting in a bar around the San Francisco bay :p)

Bottled 355ml. -at Crystal Palace (JDW) Glasgow. Clear amber coloured, small to medium sized off-white head, hops in the nose. Sweetish malty, grapefruity hoppy, light caramel and fruits with notes of grass and passion fruit. Pleasant bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden color with a 2 finger frothy white head. Nice lace until I rinsed the glass. Aroma of florals and pine with citrus rind. I picked up some malt but it was fleeting. Taste was hoppy with pine and citrus rind and more of the fleeting malt. Good medium thick mouth feel. Pine forest burps... Overall a really nice beer.
