3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Amit. Hazy golden-orange with a white head. Lovely hoppy aroma full of tropical fruits and a light "green" touch. Dry flavor with lots of juicy fruity hops and refreshing moderate bitterness. Medium-bodied. A lovely, refreshing, IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 12/30/14. Beautiful golden color with a frothy white creamy head. Aroma is big bold citrus, lemon, orange peel, pineapple, grapefruit, pine. Really intoxicating freshness. Distinct maltiness in the back, it’s not huge but it is noticeable. I could smell this beer all day long. Flavor is amazing. Lemon, coriander, mango, pineapple, balanced malty biscuityness. Palate is a sort of medium-heavy creaminess. Reminds me a bit of dirt wolf. Not a nitro beer by any means but a really pleasant palate, not too heavily carbonated. This is remarkably well done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled December 23, 2014.
Glass: Weyerbacher tulip.
Appearance: Hazy golden orange body with a dense and foamy white head perched on top.
Aroma: The aroma is citrus heavy with oranges blended with mango, grass and a dash of biscuit malts.
Taste: Mildly sweet malt base with orange being prominent. Light grass flavors with a dash of mango and some caramel by the finish. The finish kind of dies.
Palate: Medium bodied, but lacking in carbonation.
Overall: This is my third time having this and I come to the same conclusion, it’s just not for me. I think that it’s a pretty poor value and the flavor profile falls flat to my palate.

Bottle from Paradiso Dupont in DC. Pours a beautiful clear hay with a nice solid, slightly off-white head. Nice lacing in the glass. Hops. Chewy. Piney. Effervescent. A "West-Coast" IPA that's not over hopped or overdone. Awesome.

[6911-20141109] Bottle. Fresh orange citrus peel hops aroma. Slightly hazy, bright orange light amber body with a huge long-lasting foamy off-white head and some lacy lacing.

Spectacular, wonderful hops that dominate the flavor and aroma profiles, had this on draft, off white head, a touch of haze color was a light straw.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a vibrant gold color, one finger white head that leaves spotty lacing. Aromas are dank! In your face pine, subtle mango and a rounded lemon peel scent. Taste is just as bold. Lots of pine upfront. Earthy. Nice smooth tropical fruit waves across the middle with a medium bodied malt sweetness...and then finishes with a nice moderate bitterness and citrus hop hop notes. Great stuff!
