3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Noble. Pours a cloudy golden orange with medium white head. Aroma is citrus, slight mild dank notes, zucchini bread. Taste is maltier than I would like but has a little bitterness as it finishes. Definitely some citrus and slight stone fruit going on. Descent IPA but nothing special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a bright orange color. This is a big peppery IPA. Very spicy with a bitterness that lingers a bit quite different from Breakaway or their regular IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear orange pour with a white head. Citrus and pine hops on the nose, but a slightly underattenuated malt profile. Light grass, some floral notes, and a nice bread note. The flavor is a little bread forward for an IPA, but decent citrus, some pine, floral hops, and a touch of grass. Not quite what I’d expect from a west coast IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a crystal clear looking gold body supporting an off white head. The aroma offers up a big inviting mix of aromatics that include mango tropical fruit and malt sweetened grapefruit like citrus. Nice. The taste is pleasing with a firm level of grapefruit hop bitterness and what seems like a dash of malt sweetened mango tropical fruitiness here and there as well. There is a hop resin bitterness that helps dry this out a tad into the finish. This is a delicious robust IPA.
