3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lots of citrus hops and a lot of balance. Very typical IPA. I could tell no difference between this and the El Camino. Both were good though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Solana, early Dec 05. Orange coppery and clear pour. Citrusy and light piney hop aroma. Caramel malty flavors balanced decently with similar citrusy and light piney hops, and a touch fruity. Not too bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at RFD’s 11/7/05: Medium amber body with a tight, off-white head. Aroma is fresh lemon and citrus hops all the way. Taste is grapefruit, lemon, peat(?), lemon grass, light salty yeast, and peach. Light-medium bodied. I think this was the only one argo0 and I were more than .1 off each other’s scores, literally without discussing anything about the beer until after we finished rating.
