Bottle. Nose is hoppy and floral. Very hopped. Tastes more cirusy than most IPA’s I have had. Other flavor notes to come out are apple and light malt. Very nice IPA. Finish is a little sticky and it lingers.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper color with decent head retention. Nose full of pine needles (well, there’s a little sweet touch of malt in there too). Nice body to it. Soft malty sweetness accompanies teh hoppy burst. Hops are a nice balance of citrus and flower in your mouth. Hoppy touch (flowery) on the smooth finish. Lighter body allowed me to sample this one over and over again, for the purpose of accurate notes, of course.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle Pours with fluffy white head, lace is nice. Peppery, Zingy hop nose...pine and resin! Bit of malt. Nice drinking medium body. Not over the top hops, but they dominate. Bitterness lingers at the end, with maybe a bit of hard water. Biscuity malt is evident, finish eludes to melon? Moderate bitterness in this very nice IPA. It makes the list for next time.

Impressive IPA. Deep copper. Nose quite hoppy, very citric. Very good flavor, hops are very powerful, lots of grapefruit, stunning buckets full of perfume, incredibly spicy, has very nice, sticky malts to back it up. Full and creamy. Very, very good.

Amber/copper color, with a small white head. Grapefruit and pine dominate the aroma, with some malt as well. Taste is also grapefruit, with a bit of caramel. Body is thinner than I would like.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Off copper color with lasting bubbly ivory head. The aroma just blows you away with flowers and citrus. This one is right up there with the bad-ass IPA’s. Smooth, crisp. hoppy as all get out and dry. Gotta have it. Man, I wish I remember who sent me this. Thanks.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew tasted at DrewLaPalooza poured a medium sized head of fine to large sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. Its body was transparent carbonated and brown in dolor. It had a hoppy IPA aroma and a tingly hoppy biting mouth feel. The flavor was also very hoppy with some caramel notes. A very typical IPA that the ho heads will enjoy.

A really good IPA. Very, very floral and complex in aroma and flavor. Balanced and beautiful. Finishes round and perfectly bitter.
