3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2013 IPA glass. Pours a cloudy bronze with a thick foamy white head. Really tasty smelling, hints of hops and sticky pine. Good but not great tasting, the initial taste is a bit watered down and the flavor hits towards the end.

Pours a cloudy, orangeish-yellow with minimal head. Very strong hop aroma. Flavor is a nice, smooth combination of piney-hop bitterness with citrus notes and a sweet finish. This is really a very good IPA--surprised I haven’t heard of it before.

12oz bottle, thanks to Jay. Hazy amber - orange color. Bigger, foamy white head, leaves a good thick amount of rows and reaches of lace. Big orange and grapefruit resiny citrus - peel hop flavor. Sort of sweet taste, some light bite. Soft , lighter carbonation. Medium body. Good resiny pine aftertaste. Satisfying IPA, and especially flavorful for the ABV. Caramel malts. Enjoyable IPA, but not the most balanced.

Bottle @ Brad’s house. Pours a dark golden orange appearance with an off white head. Herbal, grapefruity, fairly floral, citrusy nose. A bit tangy, light woody, grapefruity, quite herbal hoppy, somewhat toasty malty flavor. Pretty decent.

12oz bottle $1.69. Bright orange color, sticky lace and a fluffy head. Smells slightly hoppy, nothing overwhelming. Flavor definitely has a lot of hops but it’s almost all bitterness. I was really surprised by how bitter this was but I liked it. Still, I would have preferred a little more diversity in the hop flavors.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Dirty amber, large rocky white head, splotchy lacing. Big sweet ruby red grapefruity citursy nose. A bit candyish. Sweet citrusy hops up front, not too bitter, with a bit of candyish powdered sugar background. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Pithy background, citrusy, ruby red grapefruit, candyish, powdered sugar all on the exit. I could do without that powdered sugar as it seems too candyish, but otherwise this was a very citrusy and not too bitter IPA. I can certainly dig it!
