3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice copper with a big frothy white head. Beautiful lacing. Aroma is full of grapefruit with a good amount of caramel. Grapefruit was not nearly as dominant in the flavor. It offered more caramel, pine, grass, and spice. A very nice IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a brilliant and clean dark yellow, light amber with little head but the carbonation was good and left lacing. The aroma was strongly grapefruit hops with little malt. There was a strong citrus flavor, particularly grapefruit along with some pine notes at first, the bitterness is right up front and dominant. As the beer warms the bitterness mellows and the beer really mellows out and blends into a nicely balanced drink. Good job.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Brilliantly clear with a nice steady thick white head. Really nice looking light copper with slow-rising carbonation. Aroma of American hops, light pine and big citrus. Flavor is clean with understated bitterness and good flavor. Highly balanced with a good creaminess and some light carbonation on the tongue. Very easy-drinking, really nice IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Tons of fresh cedar in the aroma. Spicy and fresh. Pours a clear medium amber with a fluffy head. Prickly near the back of the tongue, pleantantly bitter, a powerful hop presence gives way, a little shorter and drier than some west coast brethren, but very sharp and clean. Oranges and grass make themselves known. Very good. Thanks Malcom!
