4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled 10/2/2012. Pours lightly hazy bright golden amber color with a very nice 2-3 finger fluffy white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pineapple, orange zest, grapefruit, lemon, citrus rind, grass, floral, herbal, and light piney spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great hop complexity and balance; very dank smelling. Taste of pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, bread, and herbal spiciness. Fair amount of piney bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, citrus zest, floral, grass, citrus rind, pine, bread, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice hop flavor balance and complexity; nice malt/bitterness balance; hardly any cloying hop bitterness on the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a sticky, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an awesome wet hop IPA! Great dank hop complexity and balance; very smooth and crisp to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice golden, slightly hazy pour with great head and specific lacing. Nice piney aroma. Starts of with a semi sweet hoppy apricot intro and turns into a nice bitter grapefruit ending. Not too sweet but also not too bitter or raw-hoppy at the end.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A hazy, slightly orange beer with a blond, slightly clouding, and big head. Pretty. Aroma has mangos, pineapples, generic tropical fruits, some papaiyas, nice fructose and grapefruits. Enjoyable, tropical fruits sallad without anything more but that’s not bothering. Taste has mangos and some papaiyas, more grapefruits than in the aroma, pine needles. The bitterness is nice and strong, aromatic, piney with some resin in the end. Long lasting and piney bitterness. Medium bodied, nicely smooth to drink. Tropical fruity but also strongly bitter IPA. Great beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 11.04.14.
A: Lots of green vegetable, almost like pot. Candied tropical fruit is there too.
A: 2 finger head that is retained. Hazy straw yellow body.
T: Green vegetable dominates. Candied tropical fruit, grass, orange, and spiciness are subtle.
P: Crisp and bubbly on the back end. Kind of watery.
O: This was the mildest fresh hop of the season. It was a little too watery. There was some major skunkage going on that really smelled and tasted like pot. It was rough, but good.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Insanely hopped. Expect from that, there is a nice orange color with sediments in it and lots of foam. In the taste is some sweetness in the end, but mainly and almost exclusively hops in smell and taste. Some herbs are also included in the mixture. Rather dry aftertaste.
