3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
[bottle from the brewpub] Pours a gleaming copper color, with a nice white head and some serious lacing around the glass. Grassy, piney hop aroma-- very nice. Citrus flavors up front, like orange and grapefruit, with some amazing finishing hops, providing an impressive, lasting bitterness. Alcohol content is kind of subtle, but still noticable. A really nice IIPA, overall.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Thanks to zrrbrrt for sharing. Dark orange body with thin head. Grassy aroma - somewhat odd. Taste is grassy and with a mixture of fruit in there. Alcohol detected. Gave me hoppy burps. Pretty smooth though. I enjoyed this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to zrrbrrt for sharing this one that he got via warriorsoul...
Appears hazy, semi-transparent with a small white head that fades into a tiny collar. Spotty remnants of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of grapefruit, brown sugar, orange, herbal, caramel, and light fruit.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with a heavy dosage of grapefruit and citrus zest.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, yeasty, fruity, bitter...perhaps a bit too bitter and out of balance but not bad at all. I just wasn’t too crazy about this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to zzbrrt. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with an average bubbly off white head that left slight lacing. Aroma of caramel, pine, orange, grapefruit, candy corn and some oxidation. Flavor of caramel, pine, grapefruit and a slight butterness hidden in there. Kind of thin and lots of bitterness.
