3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bright hazy amber with a medium beige head that recedes slowly and leaves a clump of foam in the middle and very little lacing. The aroma is fantastic with tons of juicy citrus and slightly resinous floral hops. Lots of pineapple, oranges and mango with pine as a complement. Biscuity malts are present but the hops are the star. The taste is just as good and starts with a scathingly bitter pithy citrus kick. Really just fills the mouth with oranges, grapefruits and pine. The bready malts are there to support the hops which leaves a big olí bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with an off-white head. Aroma is fleshy fruit and floral hops with a mild caramel sweetness. Flavor is moderately bitter, with a touch of fleshy fruit hoppy sweetness. Light to medium in body with a lingering bitter and a faint fruity sweetness. Pretty good overall, but not sure how fresh it is.

All these comments below support my theory that this may be the best ipa on the market! Twice the taste as a lot of other ipaís for half the price! Great one to keep stocked.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is clean, assertive hops, but not a west coast IPA by any stretch, the hops are extremely assertive in the bitterness, but its not supported by a hop forward flavor, just bitter as all get out. I canít say I liked it very much.
