3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one poured a lighter orange color with a white head. Aroma was of grassy and fruity hops, and light wheaty notes. Flavor was similar, very fresh cut grass, lemons and oranges with a small pale malt base. Very clean and refreshing like all of thier stuff.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to crajun for the trade!
Bottle best within 90 days of 090313.
Mostly clear straw yellow with a generous 3 dimensional white head.
Very interesting lace pattern on the glass as the head falls.
Nice fruity citrus hop aroma. Iím sure this big thick head is holding back some aromas.
The flavor is lightly bitter. Lots of bitterness in the long dry finish.
Plate is on the lighter side.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500mL thanks to WillRunForBeer! Pours a full haze pineapple juice color with beautiful white foam, huge formation and lacing. Nose is juicy tropical pineapple, ripe peach, low alcohol sweetness, overripe cantaloupe, honey, buttery fresh biscuit, fresh brewhouse pale grist. Taste is a little over the hill, quite dusty and sharply woody. But it isnít too abrasive and retains a hefty oatmeal grain body. Palate suffers from this. This bottle was past its prime when sampled, but will hopefully get to try again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Vibrant straw, a bit hazy, moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Powdery sugar nose, hoppy but a little artificial.   Moderate bitterness on the tongue, simple, but with a little pixie stix like powdered sugar sweetness.   Reminds me of a Danish IPA in its sweetness.   Seems simple, not too floral or citrusy.   Just a bitterness with sugary sweetness.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   A little pith on the backside, along with that powdery pixie stix profile.

Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong pine and orange citrus notes. The flavor has orange, resinous pine and biscuit malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice IPA.

Bottle - thanks JBPortland! 09/03/13 bottling date. POurs hazy golden, large creamy off-white head, nice lacing. Aroma is pine, dank, cat piss, passionfruit, citrus. Flavor is the same, light sweet, light bitter with an initial bit of pine-sol that fades as the beer breathes. Medium body. This is a good one, probably even better closer to the bottling date!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2013 Pours a hazy yellow in color with a profound sticky head. The aroma is of potent hops, very floral and citrus, with malt undertones. In the flavor I picked up on pale malts, light carmel malt sweetness, limited herbal lemon taste, grapefruit, weak pineapple, and a pleasant bitterness. The finish left a fruit, malt, and a hop blending. This beverage is kind to one?s palate and very drinkable. Overall I enjoyed this beverage, nicely done.

Two months old. Ours orange gold with a white head that leaves lacing in the glass. Strong hop aroma of grapefruit, lemon. Taste is pale malt dominated by grapefruit hop. Enough sweetness to balance. 7% well hidden. Very good, but I liked itís sister Weez just a touch better.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma is just super hoppy and fresh. Thereís floral, pineapple, tropical fruit, tons of sweet citrus. Its just a vibrant and big aroma. The flavor follows on the aroma with not as much of a pronounced fruit flavor, but a gorgeous bitterness that creeps up on you. Thereís a long pine and herbal bitterness that reminds me of Lunch, which definitely is from the Simcoe. The mouthfeel is really bready, but light enough to still be an IPA. The malt and tons of carbonation do this beer really well. I had this super fresh, only 2-3 weeks ago and it really is a treat. Easily one of the best IPAs Iíve had and itís up there with Lunch. If anything, the hop profiles are not different enough for me to say which is ďbetter.Ē
