2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can: The aroma consists of citrus, peach, light tropical fruit, and a floral/citrus hops combo. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a two finger white head that quickly fades to a thin film. There is a lot of soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor is another story. It starts with light-moderate fruit and caramel. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit and light floral notes. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, this smells pretty good, but it tastes like an old IPA.

Gold with a white head. Simple and straight forward. Come citrusy/floral
Hops. Not overly hoppy not to malty.
Earlier Rating: 10/16/2011 Total Score: 3.6
Yellow/gold pour. White head. Citrus hops, bready notes. Flavor has a good hop note and finishes with a juicy, bitter bite. Not too bad.

650 mL bottle generous shipped to my home address by my father.
Many thanks, sir! To oversized snifter, it pours an effervescent, bright amber orange with which a foamy snowy white head ˝ fingers in length stood. Aromas of seaweed, pine cones, chives, dried lavender, cotton, and American hops. Tastes the same with the addition of graham crackers, firewood, sea salt, rose water,Bible paper and pickled pears by swallow. Floral, bittersweet, and just a tad salty. Overall, enjoyable IPA. Was definitely akin to chewing juicy hop pellets at its finish, but it certainly had a likable malt body so it wasn’t a total mess in this department. 3.5 out of 5 ain’t bad, no matter what they told you.

Can. Creamy caramel aroma with some hops. Hazy amber body with a thin frothy off white lace. Apparently a really popular beer locally. I can see why. Nice balanced hoppy flavor. Really nice beer.

Orange pour with average soft white head. Aroma of earthy and grassy hops, apparent bitterness. Flavor is citrusy, hoppy, strange yeasty bitterness on the finish.

This IPA has a very pleasant hop bit to it. The hops are perfectly balanced with the malt foundation. This IPA will be my go to cerveza.

Draft - grapefruit and a bit of pine. Clear gold with a decent white head. Pine and a bit of resin withe goth bitterness and sweetness to balance. Nice session IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a fair showing for a non west coast IPA. You can tell they definitely tried to do their own thing. A pleasing floral hop aroma followed by a bit of a lack luster flavor. It's more bitter than hoppy. Could probably use a more resinous hop on the boil.
