4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Beer Junction. Pours clear pale orange with thin head. Aroma is grapefruit hops. Taste is solid caramel malt base with a ton of hop flavor; grapefruit, pine, and floral. Nice alcohol to pull it all together. Truly one if the best balanced IPAs around. Glad to see this back. Gearhead is a weak sibling to this.

Very light amber color, good lacing, medium collar, wisps. Aroma is muted earthy malt, some citrus and floral hops. Taste is bitter earthy hops, astringent as hell. Medium body and medium high carbonation.

On tap at the brewery. Aroma: malty, citrusy, and resinous, with hints of grapefruit and pine. Taste/Palate: crisp throughout; starts sweet, then almost immediately turns bitter, followed by massively bitter in the finish.

Poured from the tap at the SE Brewpub. Color is that of a red. Aroma is your standard IPA aroma. First flavor is peach and finishes with a bitter peach skin type flavor. Additional sips yield a bit more pine and grass. Very interesting beer. Definitely lots going on here!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap poured into a sampler glass. Tropical, citrus orange, and toast with marmalade aromas are noted. The pour is a clear, effervescent, oily gold color topped by a soft, medium ring of dense white head with a filmy, floating island. Lots of lace is left on the glass. The taste is a medium sweet and medium / medium light bitter blend. The smooth, light bodied beer is accompanied by a light, fuzzy carbonation. Tropical fruits start the mouthfeel and bitter rinds finish it. Bread crust comes forth in the aftertaste with a slightly burnt and slightly waxy characeter, as well as hints of citrus.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, bottled about two and a half months ago--hopefully still good. Aroma is perfumy, floral, light grapefruit. Pours hazy orange with a medium off-white head with good retention; laces a little. Taste is thankfully better than the aroma let on; it’s average IPA territory, though, bittersweet with a light tang. I think I need a fresher bottle.

"bigger floral aroma and bigger citrus flavor than expected. this was a pleasant surprise, a nice fragrant and flavorful ipa that was very obviously fresh. well balanced but leaning towards the hops. good enough to want more from this brewer."

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle acquired in a trade with a friend in the Northwest. Consumed at home and poured into a goblet. It pours a little hazy copper with a nice head. The aroma is a mild citrus with hints of resin and tropical fruit. The taste is quite balanced with the main properties of the hops evidently coming from late in the boil and dry-hopping. The finish is clean. Great beer. I wish we could get this out here on the East Coast.
