3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Super słodki, super owocowy aromat. Mango, brzoskwinia, ananas. Barwa złota, piwo delikatnie mętne. Szybko opadająca piana ale świetny lacing. Odczycie wskazuje na bardzo lekkie piwo. 13-14 Plato. Zero ciała, dość wodniste. Alkoholu nie czuć. Jak na IIPA to super pijalne, ale przez to brakuje mu charakteru dużego piwa. Średnia goryczka, super przyjemne, ale trochę mu brakuje kopnięcia.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz. bottle served in a Bell’s Tulip.
A: Pours a clear peach with some straw colored hues around the edges. A 1 finger white head forms on the pour and subsides to a nice ring. Nice sheets of lace are left down the glass.
S: Bursts of citrus and sweet fruits. Grapefruit, apple and mango are some of the great smells coming out. A very slight pine is on the backend.
T: The citrus just pops in your mouth. Grapefruit and orange citrus with a faint hint of sweet mango. Some light biscuit malts show themselves as well. The finish is a slight bitter pine.
M: Lively mouth with great carbonation. Light to medium bodied with a subtle sticky feel to it. Highly drinkable.
O: Just like everyone else, I was shocked and pleasantly surprised by this guy. The citrus bursts in your mouth and the malts and slight pine bitterness really balance it out. The drinkability is off the charts.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2013 A clear golden yellow color with huge white sudsy head with good retention that leaves good lacing. Nice melding of ripe tropical fruits, cracker malt and some spiciness. A nice caramel sweetness with some fruitiness and a subdued piney bitterness in initial taste. Can taste some cracker malt with some spiciness in finish. Semi sticky mouthfeel with a medium body and medium/high carbonation. This may be my favorite IPA. I like that the bitterness doesn’t follow through too strongly in the finish and enjoy the complexity of the sweetness, bitterness and bit of spiciness. Very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip.
The pour is a mostly transparent, full golden yellow color with straw edges. A regal off white froth bellows up from the beer upon pouring. Levels of lace remain where the beer rested during my glass.
The biggest compliment I can pay to the complexity of this beer is that it seems nearly impossible to identify all of the aromas and flavors, so I am reduced to using general descriptors to do the best I can. The aroma has a spicy pine hop base, with a nice amount of grapefruit, apricot, and tangerine as well. As the sweetness comes through, I get some light pale malts, honey, and some caramel.
The flavor blend nicely together and roll in complexity. Up front, biscuity bread and honey, some light caramel notes, and then a nice wave of hops that never goes off the bitter end. Spicy pine, grapefruit, lemon zest, apricot, and assorted other citrus notes roll on the tongue as the sip concludes.
The hops are strong, but not totally overwhelming. The oil residue mostly clears away from the mouth after each sip, and the hoppy flavor and crisp carbonation mean it scrubs the tongue clean after sip. The overall feel is simple, clean, crisp, and refreshing.
Not an absolute hop bomb, but this was quite enjoyable.
