4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Serving: Bottle from a very generous friend. It pours a hazy amber color with a sizeable fluffy head. The nose is all about the hops. He served it to me blind and I guessed it was Pliney. Lots of pine and herbal hop notes. The flavor blew me away. The hops set to work and have a lasting effect on the tongue. Tons of pine, grapefruit, and herbal notes with just enough malt to keep thing interesting. Even more impressive is how light it seems on the tongue. I would say a light to medium body. Simply outstanding the best IPA I’ve had in the past year.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
28 June 2016, tap. Yellow and a tad hazy/dirty. Nose is sweet, orange, grapefruit, lemon citrus. Med body and mildly fizzy. Dry citrus and mildly malty. I think an east coast IPA should be sweeter and a bit more body. But this is a "blend." Still, very good.

Awesome unique nose, with plenty of tropical fruit, some nuttiness, and doughy notes. Appearance is dark gold, slight haze, fine lace. Mouthfeel is juicy, ends dry. Thick and complex and not just another IPA. Thanks Wally. Anne likes it.

Whoop! got me a few bottles finally. Big hops yes, moderate body balances such hop oppression. Nose is light. Sturdy. Sparse lacing left behind from this quick drinker.
