3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark red slightly hazy with thin white head, aroma brought big chewy Simcoe, some pine, grapefruit and sweet orange notes, touch of slight caramel and some hints of an earthy spice as well. Taste is sweet and slightly chewy, some big citrus up front with orange and grapefruit, going into biscuit, caramel, some toasted bread and hints of earth, finishing fairly bitter. Pretty decent.

Pine/grapefruit and a hint of syrup sweetness in aroma. The flavor is caramel malts, citrus, a mild fruit tartness, pine and a lingering bitterness in the finish.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a quick off white tight soapy head that fades to a thin collar. Aroma is floral resinous hops and malt all around with some sweet caramel scents. Taste is resinous pine spruce and floral hops with a heavy caramel malt throughout. Palate is medium and chalky with a bitter drying finish.

The best Pyramid beer I’ve tried. Awfully tasty, but not quite IIPA or DIPA, more like 1.7IPA. Fruity, spicy and a little grassy on the nose. A nice carmel malt flavor quickly clobbered by assertive hops that follows through to the long bitter finish. Could use more aroma or just LESS SIMCOE!

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2015 One of the more impressive offerings from Pyramid. Pours a gorgeous amber with a nice foamy white head. Very floral and hop oriented aroma with a bittersweet finish on the palate. I like this beer. It is cheap and has a good buzz to it.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a small off white head. The aroma is pine hops and grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet hop flavor and light bitter finish. Easy to drink a very good IIPA from Pyramid.

What a nice surprise. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much from this one. It pours a nice hazed tangerine with appropriate slightly off white head, good lacing, minimal beading. The nose is big on tropical and citrus bits, dense indica character. The taste carries a lot of the same attributes with the addition of some terrific caramel. This is a great IIPA, not at all what I was expecting.

Orangish pour wiht a thick tight creamy head.
aroma is quite nice, citrus and tropical fruit over caramel.
Flavour has a bit more burnt sugar/toffee molasses going on. Some fruity hop presence. Medium bitterness. Overall meh.

On tap at Pyramid's restaurant and bar in Sacramento. The citrus notes are more covered by the hoppy bitterness than I would prefer but all in all a decent IPA.
