3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear dark golden color with healthy white head which lingers. Aroma is hint of grapefruit, citrus, bread. Taste is citrus, fruity, heavier mouthfeel than most IPAs, touch of biscuit, ending in a nice, slight bitterness. Quite a nice experience.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 Bottled June 18, 2014.
Appearance: Crystal clear orange/amber body with a rocky off-white head that has great retention.
Aroma: Slightly biscuit and dough with pine, cotton candy, sweet orange candy, peach and cantaloupe. A bit mellow and flat, not very vibrant.
Taste: Definitely not your typical IPA. Malty with a lot of mellow and subtle flavors. Sort of toast and dried biscuit malt base with a mix of fruity and cotton candy hop flavors. Hints of grapefruit, pine, peach, cantaloupe and cotton candy (notably on the finish) are very interesting. Soft finish.
Palate: Soft in every way.
Overall: Definitely a unique IPA in many ways. It’s very soft in flavor, aroma and mouthfeel. Like every jagged edge has been eroded over time. The flavors I’m getting are odd and exciting. This is like an IPA I’ve never had. I could drink 3-4 of these without realizing it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is a hazed dark copper color with a fairly tight white head. Nose is biscuity malt and stale grain with a hint of resin hop. Taste follow suit on sweeter, stale bread and grain, sweet caramel, faint hop. This is a very subdued IPA with lots of grainy malt that aren’t very expressive or well pulled together.

Lots of grapefruit, and a bit of tropical fruit and some mint is what I sniff. Balanced taste, restrained hops throughout. Malty notes, mint in the middle, dry finish. Decent.

12oz bottle. Pours golden almost amber with a little white foam. Citrus hops come thru big on the nose, and carry onto the palate. Long finish, Very nice.

Draft at Kloby’s. Pours clear amber with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like Sweet, musky, orange, grapefruit, pine, resin, and light caramel. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet nutty hops, orange, light grapefruit, and light caramel.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden-orange beer with a frothy head in a tulip glass. Fruity, sweet, mellow aromas. Oranges and passion fruit. Some grains in it too. Citrus hops. In the mouth it is lollypop, sweet, floral flavours first and then the sweetness turns into a wonderful grassy, resin long hoppy bitterness. A special kind of IPA, definitely worth trying!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing this!
Very great nose with lots of mint, floralness and chewing-gum. The beer starts as it smells - great and aroma-full. Very intense and very great hop-combination. I like it but the mintiness of the Polaris-hops is a bit too much and too pushy.
The aftertaste is long, intense - and minty.

Pours a golden color with a slight haze with a cream colored head. The nose is mild mint, citrus, grain. The taste is as it smells ending dry and crisp. Light+ in body with fine carbonation. The mint sort of throws me off a bit.
