4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2007 Hazy, pale body with a medium-sized off-white head. Very nice hoppy nose with grapefruit, floral, tangerine and light bread. The flavor is slightly sweet, grapefruit, light caramel and clean yeast. Medium body is round with soft carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
appearance: minimally transparent orange with a fluffy, tantalizing ivory head...aroma: citrus, fruity hop nose with a slight sweetness coming through from the malt......taste: very characteristic of the nose. very good dose of citrus hops that eventually opens up to some caramel malt. finish lends itself to a touch of a piney bitterness....tasty

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 (re-rate: cask at Ritual) even better on cask - rich mouthfeel on top of the flavors as mentioned; the only downside is that I didnít want to sample any of the other beers
(tasting at Brickskeller) amber with small light tan head. Lovely floral hops aroma. Flavor was citrus and floral hops. Just enough malt to carry the hops.

Ok, I donít like IPAís. This one had a great sweet hoppy aroma that promised a pleasant experience. The taste though was definitely a strong blend of hops with the cascade hops coming forward quite intensely. At the end of the day I liked it but it was just too darn hoppy for me.

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.

Appearance: Pours a clear, light copper body with a white head.
Smell: A bit of understated aroma of caramel and pine.
Taste: Toasted caramel with resinous pine and plenty of bitterness and acidity along the way. Thatís about Iím getting oughta this one.
Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Moderately carbonated.
Drinkability: Just another in a long line of IPAs.

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.
