Tap. Pale looking with a small head. Aromas of grapefruit and pine. Very nice. Taste is slightly bitter, some grapefruit and maybe tangerine. Really not much to it, I was expecting a punch of hops.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
05-Aug-10 (341-ml bottle: Gift from SDbruboy, thanks Cliff!) Aromas of tropical fruits, grapefruit, and grass create a solid first impression for this IPA. Flavors of composted grass, dust, earth, tangerine, and grapefruit rind are pleasant. However, with a somewhat muted malt profile and unintegrated hop bitterness, the beer seems a bit hollow. Both the flavor and nose really take on strong vegetal notes after only a few minutes. Light medium in body with moderate carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. The body is hazy and pale golden in color, and is capped by nearly an inch of creamy, white foam that, as it slowly settles to a thin layer, deposits an elaborate web of intricate, patchy lace. Overall, a decent, though somewhat disjoint IPA that doesn’t destroy the taste buds with overwhelming bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale amber, slightly hazy. Great white head. Aroma of wet grass, a bit fruity. Tastes kind of like a modern lager. Low bitterness for the style. Taste has some yeasty fruitiness, orange, mandarines.
Not unpleasant, quite drinkable actually, but not a great IPA.

bottle thanks to zinister. Pours a clear amber with a white head. Nose is very much oranges. Taste is a bit off, like artificial fruit flavoring, but not bad. Mouthfeel is very fizzy carbonation and some bitterness.

341ml bottle from a private order. Nice amber, and great head retention. Aroma of hops, and some sweetness. Flavour doesn’t have as much hop bitterness as the aroma suggests, but a nice drinkable beer all the same.
