4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A fine IPA. Nose is huge hops, and the flavor is rock solid, with tons of huge citrus and pine notes and some malt to back it up. Balanced and drinkable as hell.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
If you’re a hop head, seek this one out. The scent is earthy and soft with some hops and light grassy notes. The body is also light and dry with an ascending background of tangerine. It’s just so damn fresh and delicious.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle dated 8/10/12 so three weeks out. Pour has a dark golden orange color and a thick two finger white head that retained very well. Aroma has huge hops, dry citrus, light tropics, sweet malt, and light pine. Fantastic nose but the mo last night was much punchier. Mouth feel is medium light and there is medium carbonation. Flavor brings the bitterness out, resins, sweet malt, citrus pokes, nice and juicy with a lingering finish. There is a considerable bit more malt in this than mo and the bitterness is juiced up a bit as well.
