3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear orange color with a soapy white head - good amount of lacing. Tropical fruit and pine aromas.- bitterness really comes through on the back end. This is a good IPA that I’ve come back to time and time again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle- Pours a clear golden color with a good head and nice lacing. Piney and citrus aroma with a trace of sweetness. Taste is mostly of citrus with some pine thrown in. A bit tart with a dry-bitter finish and slight bitter after taste. medium body, crisp and clean. Not quite as smooth as I expected. Decent IPA, just doesn’t quite have that wow factor.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2015 Drank Dogfish head 90 minute in same sitting, so this seemed really smooth. Good color, good head, easier drinking beer than the dogfish. Not quite as interesting, but solid. Super crisp and really well balanced. Nice brightness to it. Not much not to like about this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells better than it tastes - very piney smell, lovely rich hop aroma. Golden color with a nice head little lacing on the glass. Taste is way too hoppy- needs more balance.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle flown on a plane from Vegas right here to me in Pittsfield, MA. Smell shoots out grapefruit and citrus and definately pine. Goes down with a tad of sweetness and then the bitterness creeps in likde a forgotten friend. Great brew here, especially for a drinkable IPA. I could take a few of these down and not get sick of them. Color is shown a dark golden haze and the thick head when poured lasts throughout the brew. Quite an enjoyable IPA here.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a orangish gold with a sudsy yet thin head and complex aromas of citrus, bread dough, grass and herbs. Flavor is decidedly malty... hops are not as dominant as I would have hoped, more like a medicinal/herbal presence that is moderate at best.

12 oz bottle. Poured a light copper with medium fluffy head. Nothing exciting in the aroma department, but a very bold grapefruit flavor in the body. Floral notes accompanied by slight pine and caramel. Good lacing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared @ Cincy gathering. Pours a clear light golden color with a small white head. The aroma is citrus, herbal and resiny hops, grassy with a hint of pine. Not much in the way of malts in the nose. The flavor has pine, resin, pale malt, and a touch of citrus. Good bitterness through the dry finish. Decent.
