3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of Bu11zeye: Poured an hazy brown color ale with a big foamy head with better then average retention. Aroma of deep citrus hops with some piney notes. Taste is also dominated by huge citrusy hops with some great caramel malt to back-up the whole thing together. Body is above average with some medium filtration and some adequate carbonation. Overall, a good west coast interpretation of the style but nothing earth shattering either.

A 22 of Wipeout drank on your patio at 4pm on a sunny southern californian afternoon is pretty damn satisfying. Similar to lots of of other ipaís but a little less agressive than some of its brothers.

22. Thanks, Aspidites! Pours medium gold with ambery highlights. Giant flowery hop nose. Sweet floral candy all over the place. Big tingly forward attack; medium body, hot resiny bitterness as you get nearer the finish. Quite the grand tour of hop varieties--this is amazing stuff and I really wish I could get it all the time.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a darker golden color with a huge 3 finger white head and a lot of pretty big floaties. The aroma is super sweet. Notes of Cirtus, pineapple, and honeysuckle are all present. The flavors are a bit more earthy with a lot of resinous pine. Still some pineapple but itís a lot more subdude than the aroma. I had high hopes for this one after the first sniff but the flavor just didnít quite live up.
