From bottle. Clear yellow gold color with two finger off white head. Nose has a ton of lemon, straw, grass. Very smooth body, slighty sweet all the way through, almost no bitternes. A touch of dryness in the finish which makes it a very clean beer,crazy easy to drink. Some caramel flavors, sweet grassy notes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are a combination of orange, nectarine, white grapefruit, and pale malt. More citrus and stone fruit in the mouth, backed by some juniper and cedar bough notes, along with some pale malt sweetness. Moderately bitter on the finish, and medium bodied. Could have been a bit dryer, but headed in the right direction.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden/amber pour with a big, frothy white head. Aroma is citrusy, with some peach. Full bodied, thick with resinous hops. Pine flavor, more peach on the back end. Sticky, oily finish. Well balanced, this one is just malty enough to support the hops, no more no less. Very solid brew.

Starts with a mild hop aroma, pours a clear light amber with a white head. Nice hop presence in the taste, with just a touch of caramel. There is a long lingering bitter finish on this one, and hints of mango. Overall, a nice solid IIPA at a great price point.

Tap at Burger Moe’s. Straw colored with a white ring. Lime rind, grassy, citronella and biscuits. Momentary malty sweetness with a bug spray finish. Medium with light sticky feel. Glad it wasn’t a six pack...

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I’ve been drinking a lot of this beer. I think it’s sitting right there on the edge of Imperial for me. I guess it could go either way. It’s got a great hop presence. Very Centennial heavy. Reminds me of Two Hearted, but amped up. Not a bad thing. Aroma is really hoppy, floral. Flavor is moderately bitter, citrus, finish is nice and dry. This is what I want from IPA in general. Dry. bitter, and good citrus character. The strength prohibits more than one on a weeknight for me, but ounce for ounce this is a great beer deal. $10 for a sixer of very fresh, 8.5% IPA is hard to beat.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This has become a go-to beer for me since it’s readily available (and not too expensive) at the local grocery store. The body is clear and golden with a (usually) foamy head that leaves behind a thick, slippery lacing. The aroma is pungent, earthy with grasses and herbs and a touch of nectarine. It’s definitely hop dominated with grasses, bitter herbs, and a light touch of peach and peach pit. The soft malts give just enough of a backbone to support it all. It finishes quite dry, leaving a peppery bitterness on the tongue. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark golden color with a huge white head that never goes away and sticks to the sides of the glass. Aroma is huge hops, dirty, earthy, wet dog hops, with a light malt background. The taste is strongly earthy, with a hint of citrus, nicely balanced with a cereal malt. The finish is a little bitter but not overly so. Pretty good and easy to drink IPA.
