3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz can. Pours a pale orange gold. Little in the way of a head. Nose is nice and inviting, some citrusy notes, lotsa hops. Mouth is lemony,earthy some malt on the back end, then a long bitterness which fades with some grainy notes hiding in between. Alright, but not nearly as good as their Double Fist.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another nice surprise at the STL Hops 5th Anniversary party. Pours clear golden with a small white head. The aroma has semi-sweet caramel malt, heavy grapefruit / pine hops and a bit of a tangerine note. Medium body with a good amount of semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with a nice mix of fruity / piny / grapefruit hops and fairly sweet malt thatís more syrupy that caramel. However the hops more than offset the sweetness. The finish is much drier with the syrup gone and has all of the hops from before along with earth and heavy pine. Really nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden color with a small head and a nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is pungent and full of hop character. All together itís a fine balance of fruity, dank, and herbal hops that are in perfect harmony, very fresh smelling, very appetizing.
The flavor is a bit oniony in a nice way up front, the grapefruit and melon fruitiness is spot on. The beer has a pleasant and moderately high level of bitterness and has an enjoyable light malt character that doesnít detract from the character of the beer in any way.
I really enjoyed this IPA quite a bit.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour out of 12 oz can, thanks Matt! Clear yellow orange pour with nice white head, aroma has notes of sweet orange peel, grapefruit, hints of earth, caramel, toffee, slight lemon. Taste is a mix of sweet orange, caramel, toffee, hints of earthy lemon, slight spice, touch of grassy pine, finishing fairly bitter, tastes better than it smells for sure.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This poured a bright orane color with a beige head. Aroma was fruity and lefy hops, and light caramel. Flavor was much the same, some odd type of astringency there too, some type of homebrew tinge really. Ok.

Very nice IPA. Great citrus and grassy hops dominate. Very juicy and aromatic. One of the better single IPAs.
