A lot better than we expected it to be. Definitely not the worst beer of the night.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: cloudy, translucent yellow-straw with not much of a head, just a small, white collar. Aroma is fruity, slightly dank, with some sticky hop oils & a dripping, tropical fruit presence. Taste is nicely bitter up front with some hop leaves, oils, a light touch of pine needles & some dank notes. Light grapefruit peel, bitter with some tropical undertones. Dry, hoppy, bready malt aftertaste... Not too shabby.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Poured a light pale blonde with a thick fluffy topping of sprayed whip cream head. Aroma is floral and fruity with a big hop profile that dominates any other elements of the beer but I do get a strange funky scent of fish ceviche or slimey rotting thai basil. Something about the faint background smell of this beer strikes me as peculiar. Luckily, the drink only gives off minor flavors of oregano, basil or sage while also being supported by a sturdy backing of quality malts. The hops donít shine as much as other IPAís but they are there and do their job proper with providing a bitter taste along with a squeeze of citrus fruit flesh and peel. Decent bomber IPA on a weekday for $5, fair deal=extra points.

Bottle @ Steveís house, courtesy of Steve. Pours a strange very clear light golden appearance with a white head. Big spicy onion, mango, lemon, grapefruity aroma. Juicy, pineapple, lemon, juicy, refreshing, spicy flavor. Kind of a cool beer though no malt really.

This pours a golden color with a full off-white head. The aroma is hoppy initially, with pine and some grapefruit, as well as other citrus hints. Biscuits, earth, and a touch of caramel is noted after it sits for a few seconds. The flavor offers sweet doughy and biscuity notes, with sharp pine and citrus hops. A bit grassy. A touch dry and bitter in the finish. As expected, super easy drinking and pretty tasty. This definitely fits as a good lower alcohol "Week Day" IPA without sacraficing flavor.

On tap @ Smoqued BBQ. Incredibly pale straw color, pale lager territory. Really nice floral hop nose, orange, pine, and doughy malt. A touch of biscuit and grapefruit. Flavor is dough, biscuit, pine, and floral hops. Hints of apricot, some grapefruit, and orange peel. Nice bitterness on the finish. Maybe a touch grassy.
