3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz served in a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.
A - A crystal clear amber body with a moundy off-white head. Average retention with very little lacing.
S - Sweet Mandarin orange, bready malt, hints of green grass.
T - Nice caramel/toffee malt, slightly roasted, doughy bread, sweet tangerines, very light green pine in the background. The pine picks up and starts building bitterness around the edges of the tongue finishing bitter with a kiss of citrus and honey sweetness.
M - Very smooth and creamy feel, medium soft carbonation, crisp finish.
Not super complex but this is one of the smoothest drinking IPAís Iíve had. It was hard to drink it slow. Good all around. I would definitely drink this again.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 11/8/2012. Pours slightly hazy orange amber color with a nice 2 finger dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, orange zest, floral, orange rind, pineapple, bread, light honey, and herbal earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of hop notes. Taste of tangerine, grapefruit, orange zest, floral, orange rind, pineapple, pine, bread, honey, and herbal earthiness. Fair amount of piney citrus bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, floral, citrus rind, bread, pine, light honey, and herbal on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and complexity of hop notes; with a good hop/malt balance; and minimal cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice IPA. Good hop complexity and malt balance; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy orange with a small white head that left some lacing. The Aroma was nice with a lot of citrus, notably grapefruit. The taste was similar with grapefruit most prominent and I think I got some peach flavors in there. Itís not complex but itís tasty and refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2013 The color of this beer is a hazy dark orange with a small white head that fades fairly quickly, and the aroma is a subtle yet pleasant blend of floral hops and citrus hops. The taste is a very nice blend of mild bitterness and slight sweetness, and the palate combines a slightly sticky texture, soft carbonation, medium body, and a fairly abrupt finish.
