3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1st June 2015: 22oz bomber into a La Chouffe tulip three times. Misty golden/yellow body, the head a white blanket on each pour, good lacing on each tipping of the bottle. Hoppy and semi-bitter with a good body depth of flavour: grapefruit notes leading the citrus feel to the brews base. Really enjoyed this beer, thought it classy and full flavoured.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from Jacksons. At first taste, was bowled over by citrus hops, however that quickly turned into a somewhat metallic, astringent finish. Medium golden body with foamy head. Aroma is grapefruit, malt, yeast. Taste hits up front with hops, and finishes dry and tinny.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice earthy bitter citrus with some sweet grains, a bit of grass and hints of pine and onion. Flavor has earthy bitter citrus as well with pine, grain and a touch of onion underlying.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bomber into a tumbler on 03.23.15.
A: Orange rind, pine, grapefruit, and orange.
A: 1 1/2 finger head with an easy pour. The head stays fluffy. See through orange body.
T: Pine, grapefruit rind, and orange dominate. Oak (maybe nuttiness) and honey are subtle.
P: Crisp and finishes clean.
O: The first time that I tried this, the hops had died. The pine and grapefruit were much stronger in a fresh bottle from Safeway. This is a very nice IPA in the West Coast style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from p1meatloaf. Thanks bro! Pours a hazy bright golden with a mangoish tint. Two fingers of sudsy sandy tan head. The nose leans more towards the herbal and earthy hop notes with some pine resin and a touch of oxidation. A light malt sweetness shows as well. Herbal and pine resin heavy in the flavor with bitter citrus rind and oxidized hops. Not sure on the age here. Medium light bodied with a firm bitterness and some citrus.

12 oz via can whilst disc golfing. Moderately bitter and mild grainy IPA. Crisp, dry and refreshing. Smooth and pretty easy to drink. Overall, a fairly average IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Huge aroma of oak and some orange. Flavors are all hop-bomb, a bit woody too, with tangerine, vanilla, peanut and a desert-dry finish. Tremendous.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 5-01-2013 (Bottle - Label marked 7.1%ABV) This beerís appearance is a medium sized white head with a short retention, yellow gold transparent body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation observed, and spotty amount of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, citrus, pine, and grassy hops. The flavor is bitter, citrus, pine hops, and has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is bubbly and moderate carbonation. This is a medium bodied IPA. A quaffable IPA and a beer for the hopheads. A bit too hoppy for my liking and it is worth trying.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can poured at home. Had this in a 22 not too long ago, but Iím going through a big can phase, and since I had this, I waited to do the rating until now. Pours golden with a mild aroma. Nice, well balanced IPA. Nice malty flavor as well as a nice hop character to it. Nothing unique about it. Just another good IPA. Iíll pick this up again.
