On tap at the brewery. Pours a pale amber color without much head. Full hop flavor and yet so mild. A great IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at West End. Pours clear light copper with small, fine white head. Settles fairly quickly with sheets of thin lace. Aroma is resinous, floral hops, mild citrus. Flavor is mellow citrus, piney hops up front, fading into a malty, mildly nutty finish. More balance than expected, but also milder than expected. Clean but nothing groundbreaking. Moderate carbonation, light body and crisp texture.

Bottle from the brewery. Bottled 2-24-14 and poured on 3-4-14. Oooh fresh. Pours to my wine glass a mostly clear golden copper color with a very creamy one finger white head on top. Classic grapefruit and pine aroma, some mango and pineapple, more pine and grass. Flavor is sweet tropical fruits behind massive pine bitterness. Resinous mouthfeel, medium carbonation, and extremely smooth. I do see why this is so loved, and it is quite a fantastic IPA with a lot of heft despite the lowish ABV. Good stuff.

Great IPA. I'd say it's #4 behind Heady Topper, Pliny the Elder, and Ginger Peach Jai Alai.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled on Feb 4, 2014. Thin white head of varying sized bubbles with very minimal carbonation. Light and fruity aroma with lots of citrus, a hint of rubber on a deep inhale, cereal grains and some pine sap. Color is clear bright gold. Flavor is light and crisp and really accentuates the hops. Lots of bitterness and toasted malts, dried flowers, a bit of grapefruit pith and some chalky grains. Not overpowering anywhere. Just really tasty and bitter. Finishes dry and grainy with some lingering pine. A very good IPA! Thanks Fredward!!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 20 days old from the brewery continuously refrigerated. Pours light gold with decent lace. The aroma is very lovely fresh light citrus and pine, lighter tropical hops. The flavor is perfectly balanced biscuity sweetness, pithy and piny bitterness. The feel is light and fresh but still has substantial body and tight carbonation with a nice cooling super clean bitter end. It seems so simple and common at first but it is also so remarkably clean, well expressed, and in harmony that only outstanding marks are deserved.

510 ml bottle- Pours clear golden with a huge three finger head with great retention. Aroma is hops, pungent and citrusy, grapefruit, sweet malt backbone. The taste is sweet up front, citrus and floral, dry bitter finish. Good beer, like a smaller version of the two pliney’s.
