3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The pour was clear and copper with a nice off-white head that produced good lacing. The aroma was dominated by herbal, spicy hops with some light floral and citrus coming through. The flavor followed suit, with the herbal, floral hops dominating over citrus with only a touch of sweetness. Easy drinking, clean finish. An enjoyable beer.

very nice IPA. Drank copious amounts on a recent trip to the mountains. Hop aroma is a nice anticipation for the taste. My brother and I both noted that the citrus and pine hoppy flavor made the bitterness less intense. Best of both worlds.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a golden light amber with a little head and aromas of grass, citrus and honey. Flavor is heavily malty with floral hops and not quite enough bite to it. There is a little bit of a grassy side to it as well, but it has me wondering whether this is old or stored poorly...

I saw this when I was in Nebraska for a weekend and decided to give the 6 pack a try. Pours orange with a thin off white head. Nice hoppy aroma and flavor. Heavy citrus and pine flavor, oily, but incredibly easy to drink. Was a very good beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at ACBF. Aroma of huge, resinous, leafy, piney hops, citrus oil hops, most notable is the oil and resin quality. Flavor focuses on that again and also has a big, sticky maltiness that in most beers would be a syrupy distraction, but in this one works so well with the hop character. In your face, and good.

This is my favorite IPA to drink. Great drinkability. Great nose, an amazing grapefruit zest, and a bite. I love this beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is pure gold with a dense creamy almost off white head. Head settles quickly but leaves good lacing. Strong citrus nose, mostly grapefruit. Initial taste is a slight syrupy sweetness. The sweetness is immediately replaced spice (cloves and anise). Bitter finish which evaporates off the tongue.
