4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden color with filmy, white head. Hoppy aroma with tinges of lemon and grapefuit. Flavor is mildly bitter, lemony, and even a bit musty. (What yeasts did they use in there?... Could that have all come from the hops?) The citrus adds an element of rfreshment to a beer that nevertheless finishes bitter and dry. Great summer IPA for washing down a grilled burger.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bright, clear orange color with an insignificant white head. Almost overpowering floral/pine hop aroma that’s mirrored in the taste - not bad bad by any means but perhaps a bit too piney for my palate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2008 12oz. bottle. Satisfyingly strong hop aroma, fresh, green and citric with notes of tangerine, grapefruit, orange zest and woodsy pine, along with a mere suggestion of lurking toasty malt sweetness. Deep, clear golden amber color with a rapidly fading head. Flavor is likewise juicy, resinous and full of hop character from start to finish, with a resonant, drying bitterness present, and along with the potent, nearly overriding blend of citric and pine flavors, there exists a gentle malt undercurrent. Regardless, the hops are utterly, undeniably dominant. Oily, and a bit rough on the palate, very lightly warming with a medium body. Hop craving satiated, if nothing else.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a kinda burnt orange color. Aroma is very piney with some caramel base. Tastes sweet at first followed by bitter citrus and grapefruit. I remember this being fairly well balanced, leaning more towards citrus and pine flavors than the others, while not being over the top. Pretty nice.

Nice clear caramel colored pour with a lasting white head. Aroma is full of citrusy goodness, hops are dominate - that’s a good thing! Palate is light with the perfect amount of carbonation. Good citrusy hop flavor, maybe just a touch sweet.
