3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Canned 3/12/12. Murky amber-orange with good white head. Somewhat meager nose of over-ripe orange, resin, grass, weed. Medium-thick with good carbonation. Lots of weed in this one. Good malt back bone with more resin, raw hop pellets, big bitter finish. Not as well rounded as I might have expected from the high ratings.

Been wanting to try this out for quite some time. Pours a deep orange with a sudsy white head. Big time citrus aroma in the nose. This is a hop monster. A lot of grapefruit and earthiness in this one. Why have I waited so long to try this? Oskar Blues wins yet again...

Draft (!) at Costa Mesa Yardhouse. Golden amber. Grapefruit. Pine and grapefruit. Imagine a grapefruit tree, planted by itself in the rocky mountains and raised by pines. By nature, a host for bitter citrus, but by nurture, an everpresent coniferous force of nature. Then chop it down and turn it into a beer. That is what you have here. But no splinters. The body is too nice for splinters.

Slightly hazy amber pour. Medium head. Lots of grapefruit and pine in aroma. Decent caramel malt backbone. Flavor mirrors aroma.

I often forget what a great selection of brews are available at Augustine’s. They don’t get the super-rare stuff, but the menu is always well curated. I am not sure what prevents this 8 percent beer from falling into the IIPA category. Poured the color of honey. Smelled and tasted sweeter than what I expected. Mixture of hops was nondescript. This beer is a good candidate to bring on a backpacking trip. Draft - Augustine’s - Atlanta, GA

Draft poured a hazy orange-brownish hue with a thin white head and excellent lacing. Moderate hop aroma. Initial flavor is a light sweet with a moderate bitter finish of long duration. Taste is a citrus hop mostly grapefruit and some orange, has a strong malty backbone making for a well-balanced IPA. Medium bodied, drinks like an imperial.

Nicely done, as usual. Pours orange / yellow with a fluffy off white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts and fruits. Sweet, medium bodied taste with a sweet sticky finish. Very sweet and heavy for an IPA, reminds me more of a barley wine.
