3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
amber body, white foamy head, citrusy smell. sweet citrus flavor early with a little bit of caramel in the end of the flavor, a nice dry hoppy finish. i thought this had a very nice balance...a perfect amount of hops to keep the bitterness in check

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz. bomber thanks to Bierbauch. Amber color with a small tan head. Hoppy, piney aroma with some malt in the background. Never knew what Warrior hops tasted like before, but I’m glad I do now. Citrusy, piney with just enough malt background for balance.

Poured an amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus hops and caramel malts. Taste of citrus grapefruit, pine hoppiness, and a touch of caramel malt.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber body, thick tan head. Aroma is mostly piney hops with some sweet caramely maltiness. Flavor is nice and hoppy; not overly bitter, but very fresh-tasting. Not much I can say besides that this is a tasty, very good IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle. Pours amber with a thin, lasting head and lot’s of lacing. Awesome resin hoppy aroma. Taste is right where you want it to be, perfectly highlighting the sole hop used. Fresh citrus with a citrus hoppiness is the flavor of the day. Finishes puckering dry. Very impressive.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from World of Beer. Pours a murky dark amber-orange ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white big cumulus head. The aroma is of some citrus and pine, but it really smells of that freshly opened hop pellet bag. The flavor follows suit....maybe providing some decent maltiness, but make no mistake--this one is all about bitter hops. Pretty light bodied with very lively carbonation. Finish is long, astringent and very bitter. This was ok, but not my favorite IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange-golden with a little slightly off-white head. Aromas are of a forward hoppy aprocot. Tastes follow, with dry cherry/spice/ham undertones. I agree with tasters who identify grapefruit, too. A sharp and bitter IPA, but not the sharpest or bitterest. Palate is fine, but a little short and carbonated for an IPA.

Beer pours cloudy orange color with a well retained off white head. Aroma is very grassy with a hint of pine. Flavor is very citricly hoppy. Mouthfeel is solid.
