3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear orangish gold with a frothy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma of resin, grapefruit, pine, fruity esters and some sweet pale malts. Taste is grapefruit, pine and the bitterness is a bit astringent on the finish. Overall this is a big hoppy ipa which some may like but it’s all about balance in my books.

On tap half pint at Gilly's Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD.
Slightly hazy, medium amber-copper with a creamy off-white head and lacing that starts out great but slides back quickly, leaving a few traces.
Aroma of caramel, pine, citrus and grass with the hops and malt in almost equal balance.
Taste of pineapple, caramel, citrus and pine.
Medium body and medium carbonation.

Horrible. Tastes like a bottle of granny perfume. Super flowery. Wrong. Just wrong. I’m gonna dump the other 5 in my neighbors yard.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled 8/15/2012. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger dense white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big orange, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, floral, herbal, and light pine. Very nice aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of orange zest, pineapple, peach, grapefruit, herbal, floral, bread, and light pine. Moderate amount of herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, peach, pineapple, herbal, and light pine on the finish for a bit. Nice balance of hop flavors with a good bitterness/sweetness balance as well. No cloying flavors after the finish at all. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice IPA. Well balanced with nice hop flavors; extremely smooth and easy to drink. Really enjoyed this.
