Scipio's rating

Scipio (750) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2013
Pours a clear, darker golden with an average white head. Aroma is what you would usually expect from this style. There is a good blend of pine, grapefruit, and pineapple. I do find a bit of caramel notes in here as well. The taste is dry and bitter. I get some pine, but more fruity flavors. Grapefruit, mango, and orange, melon, perhaps a bit of kiwi as well. Aftertaste is pine, melon, and mango. Medium bodied, sticky in texture, and lots of lively carbonation. I find this crisp and refreshing. Easy to drink, with all of the IPA goodness without the crippling punch. I’m impressed with this one.

Pours gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Tropical fruit and resin aromas. Dry with caramel upfront turning quickly to resin and citrus.

Dogbrick (9113) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2015
Sample at 69 Taps. Hazy orange-gold color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, mango and toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

22 oz Bottle. Tasted on 4/4/15. Bottle from West Lakeview Liquor. You get a ton of galaxy hops on the nose. The body is fairly light & crisp on the finish. Good balance overall. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bomber courtesy of dtjager from FBW 2015 contest! Much thanks bro! Pours a clear golden orange color with a finger of foamy white head. Aroma of lemon and orange citrus, some grapefruit, caramel malt, and hints of honey. Taste mimics the nose with some zesty and piney bitterness. Super crushable! Solid stuff

jmohno (1194) - Iowa, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Id have to admit after reading the description of this beer from ratebeer ratings that I really wanted to try this and its as good as I imagined. Pours a gold light copper, short head with light lace. Fantastic aroma, tropical, resin, juicy,melon, ripe fruit, orange, more resin. Bit of bready malt. Same in taste with more bready malt, buiscuity. Citrus pine grapefruit resiny in bitter.Cleans up all the flavor in a crisp refreshing tastey finish. Real nice my kind of ipa. Not short of being perfect yet some day their could be more perfect? Or maybe someday Ill meet the perfect beer?
