3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle via trade with Walt! - Thanks! - A huge gusher that seemed to never stop. Poured cloudy dark golden with a gargantuan rocky offwhite head that stayed wonderfully and laced like crazy. Aromas of grapefruit and pine and some grainy malts underneath. Amazingly balanced flavor beneath. Nice grapefruit, and apricot hop flavor blends well with caramel sweetness. Well balanced medium bodied and somewhat resinous on the palate. Pretty nice example of the style!

Hazy copper under a foamy white head. The nose is really floral and grassy with some earthy hops and a bit of floral-sweet malts. The flavor is sweet with a predominant maltiness on the front featuring caramel and sweet floral tones, melding into a lightly bitter grassy/ herbal/citric rind bitterness for the finish. Really smooth and sweet and pleasant to drink with ample bitterness.

Big citrus, spicy green aromas from top of a thick, frothy, lasting white head. Fairly dark in color. Cleans up very nicely. Some bitterness on the backend but the malt wipes it away quickly. Very nice!

Dark amber brown color. Frothy dirty white head. Citrus hop aroma. Bursting. Very hoppy delicious. One of the easiest beers to enjoy this brewery has ever made. Hereís no denying the flavor. It even laces the glass well.

I just had one of these out at NXNW earlier today. Also grabbed a few bottles. May have to go and add more details to my review once I pop a bottle and can really get in depth.
Anyways, I totally loved it. Lots of hop character, but it wasnít a hop bomb. Very citrusy/fruity. I totally dug it. Iím probably gonna trade some of these bottles, which means Iím just gonna have to grab some more ^_^.

This beer really stood out to me at our recent tasting so Iíll enter it as 1900. Bottle, pours hazy orange with a medium light tan to white head. Aroma is huge citrus and pine hops. Flavor is silky smooth and rich toast and light caramel with huge pine and grapefruit hop character both sweet and bitter. One of the finest IPAís Iíve had in a while.

The beer pours an orangish-amber color with a tan head. The beer is clear but there is a lot of yeast sediment at the bottom of the bottle. The aroma is very fruity. I get notes of orange, grapefruit and apricot, with the apricot standing out the most. The flavor is semi-bitter citrus with a nice caramel malt backbone. I get some orange and apricot in the flavor plus the addition of pine. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I think this faded a little bit from when I had it on tap, but it was still very good.

Pint glass at the joint- one finger white foamy head formed and lasted several minutes, very nice lace as it was consumed, turbid light orange in appearance. Aroma of pine and grapefruit by the bushelbasket worth. Hits the mouth with low-medium body, malt was there but could be more heavier, very light caramel in the start, middle has a hearty hop wave come in, finish is lingering and acidic. Nicely done IPA, and itís local to boot!

Very fruity and hoppy aroma. Clear golden coloured and extremely hoppy with a crisp and bitter slightly dry finish.
