3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint at Moan and Dove, Amherst. Good aroma sweet. Citrus, grapefruit, though on the rind side of grapefruit. Clean golden orange color, good head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish, itís nice, a little narrow as far as it range with aroma and flavor , all grapefruit rind.but drinkable gives me a two hearted thing,

This oneís an easy five. Youíre not going to get much better than this. It does everything right. Very tropical. Lotís of pineapple and mango. Big citrus as well. This is the kind of ipa that makes you take a step back and say "holy shit thatís a good one" I love when I get my hands on an ipa that brings me full circle and shows me why I love the style so much. I think there are a lot of good ipaís, and a handful of great ones. Most seem to get lost in the shuffle, but this one definitely stands out and Iíve heard so many good things that when I saw it immediately grabbed a bottle so I could try it. Glad I did it really is an excellent beer for true ipa lovers.

Thanks to dhatton, pours orange with a touch of haze and a medium white fluffy head. Aroma is citrus, light pine and hint florals...all hops. Taste is moderate bitters with a little sweetness underneath. Excellent IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to thepatrickman - cheers! Hazy dark gold. Great orange, floral, and papaya leading on the nose with some light resin and shortcake. Big juice in the taste: tangerine, darker blood orange, a mix of dank and lighter tropical notes, moving on to light resin and a big grapefruit/lime bitter kick. Shortcake and light caramel represent the malt, frames the hop character rather than balances it. Long and slightly dank tropical finish with lighter floral notes lingering too. Cracker.

Wonderful nose. Poured golden with a fluffy, sticky head. Citrusy, piney, just about what you would call perfection in a bottle. Wish this was easier to get!

I could drink this all day. Great fruit nose, hoppy taste but malt balances well and isnít a bitter bomb. Mixes fruit and pine really well.

Love the aroma, reminds me of the even more refined Dinner. Great fruity flavor, little bitterness. A slightly less refined version of Dinner overall, and a great daily drinker until Dinner is more available.
