3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line :
Grapefruit rinds, flower petals and light resins adorn this IPAís comfortable mouthfeel, creating a perfumy experience.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A creamy head of foam covers the clear amber.
-Caramel malts balance out the hop profile, and linger on in the finish.
-This is not a powerhouse of a West Coast IPA, but it is very drinkable and friendly.
-The mouthfeel was truly pleasant.

Pours a nice light amber brown with half an inch of cream colored head that faded into wisps, a medium collar and very good lacing. Aroma is toasty/bready malt, with faint pint and citrus hops. Taste is appropriately bitter, with the bready malt taking main stage. Thereís some earthy and piney hops behind the big malt presence. Nice bitter bite on the tongue, medium body and med-high carbonation.

Not my cup of tea (bottle of beer). Itís an IPA for sure, but it is lacking somehow. It would probably taste good if I was drinking it while touring the brewery.

A vibrant sunny clear amber body sits beneath a loosely structured 2" off white head, falling in a couple minutes to a frothy cap and ring with erratic splotchy lace all around
Juicy sweet citrus highlights rich floral notes with pine and melon accents with little bitterness, over a sweet caramely malt base, all on an exceptionally smooth, lightly drying medium body with well controlled carbonation

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Bottle] Pour is a deep amber color with about a half inch of dense white head. Strong floral hop nose is accented with caramel and lighter tropical fruits. Taste comes across as more bitter. Pine sap and grapefruit hoppiness. Sticky caramel provides balance. Syrupy, with low carbonation. Tasting notes from early 2012.

12oz bottle, brownish pour, hop aroma...YES!!! An interesting hoppy brew. Not as hoppy as I would like, but not sweet either. A nice balance, good hop flavors, hints of caramel and grassy hops. Good brew, definitely worth the try!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
@ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Aroma of citrus and malt. Deep amber color, long-lasting rocky light tan head, sheets and swirls of lace. Taste is smooth honey malt going in that adds citrus hops deep in the palate, only to relent and grow sweeter as it fades. A nice drinking beer. Recommended.

On tap at the Yard House, Houston. As Yard House IPA. A small, dense off-white head sits on top of a hazy, golden-orange body. The aroma is mostly on the piney side, with orange peel, some apricots and a little malty touch. Some bitterness in the mouth, should have more I think. Orange peel, pine cones and a little malty sweetness. Full body, nice co2 level. A bit short in the end, but thereís at least a nice piney flavor and some orange. Overall, sure a nice one, easy drinkable and next to quenching. 140514

12 oz. bottle. Pours a well retained, medium, ivory head, with some lacing, over a very slightly hazy amber (SRM 12) body.....nose is typical American hops, with pine, citrus, resin, light floral notes, malts are lead by light toffee/caramel notes, slightly sweet hints, minimal esters....taste is lightly sweet, with toffee/caramel notes, leading to light cereal, pine, resin, citrus peel, finishing with a moderate bitterness, minimal esters....mouth feel, body medium, light alcohol warmth, carbonation makes a light acid finish. This is a quite typical American IPA. It is hop dominated in both aroma and flavors, comes close to being balanced between the malt and hop backbones, and has a clean finish. BJCP 8/3/16/4/8
