2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2013 Pours an orange copperish color, with a thick white head. Big citrus hop aroma that gives way to almost a stale malt smell at the end. Just like the first smell, the first taste is big citrus hop(orange, grapefruit, and even a little lemon zest)... but there’s something not "fresh" about the malt background. Maybe its the bottle I got, but this leaves a lot to be desired, especially with how many good things I’ve heard about this beer. Decent, but probably not worth the $6+/bomber.

Alluring citrus aroma in a golden amber pour. Hop forward balance with restrained sweet malt body. Palate cleansing finish is crisp clean and sustained. A good beer - but nothing exceptional.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Aroma of citrus, pine, malt, tropical fruits, herbal notes, earthy hops. Flavour is moderate sweet and medium bitter. Well-balanced and earthy, on the malty side with fruity notes. Though I like my IPA more of a fruit bomb, this one is surprising and enjoyable.

Has a nice amber color with a a frothy top that is a creamy color. Has a hop aroma but smells a bit tart. It has a strong tart/bitter taste and leaves a bad aftertaste and feel on the tongue.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Grapefruit aroma, average carbonation. Very well finished medium hoppy IPA. Slightly bitter finish. Unlike the current trend of IPAs that try to beguile you with mega hops and high ABV, this one is balanced and very drinkable.
