3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy light amber pour from a bomber for $4. This really feels like the quintessential West Coast IPA. Could smell the hops from the moment it was cracked open. Resin, pine, citrus. Appears to be bottle conditioned - interesting! Perhaps the yeast are carrying some of the intense hop character? Fluffy white head with a ton of lacing. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong out of the gate with a less than stellar finish. Hop forward but finishes with random tastes falling off from the hop start. That was redundant but each drink is too. Good not great.
Bottle. SoCal. Costco.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
De color suavemente anaranjado. Soberbia capa de espuma blanca que no desaparece.
Aroma a resina, pino y piŮa.
En boca entra con un punto dulce, pero pronto hace presencia el lķpulo. Herbal y resinosa. Alcohol bien integrado y final seco y amargo.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very nice IPA. Lemony, bitter on the front end and just a bit of hops in the aftertaste. Among the best of the style that Iíve sampled.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden, white head. Nose is grassy hops, peaches, pineapple, malts and caramel, mild sweet hints. Flavor is malts, caramel, pine, peaches, a firm bitterness in the finish. Lingering hoppy bitterness after the medium long finish. Probably would be better fresh, still itís pretty good. Bottle shared by martjoobolut, thanks!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (from Koht, Tallinn). Pours golden with off-white head. The head stays. Aroma is grass, tropical fruits, mango, caramel, sweetness. Flavor is sweet and bitter, grass, tropical fruits, mango, citrus. Finish is fruity citrus bitter. Overall: good brew. I guess fresher bottle would be better (didnít find BB, but I assume itís at least 3 months old, havenít seen fresher American stuff here).

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draft. Pours a light orange, typical American IPA. Aroma is mostly pine. Flavor is assertive and pleasingly bitter: grapefruit, lemon rind, a faint gesture of caramel malt. Itís a hop bomb for sure, dry and bitter with huge citrus and resin flavors. Very nice, only critique is itís a little too dry to session.

From a bottle. Pours opaque amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes like grapefruit and orange hops with light spiciness, dry toasted malt, caramel, nutty. Medium body and carbonation. Smells like orange and grapefruit hops, toasted cereal malt and caramel.
