Gift from Nathan. Pours amber with a nice white pillow on top. Sweet citrus and hop aroma. Very well balanced beer. Smooth and subtle at start with the sharpness of the hop bite towards the end. Excellent.

On tap at Fatherís office in LA. Originally rater 4.2, bumped to 4.6. Grapefruit juicy hops on the nose. Great complimenting malt character to balance it out on the nose and flavor. Not too abrasive like many IIPAs. ONe of the best in its style no double. Very dangerously drinkable, sould have this all night. The flavor is more astringent than the aroma but still great.

Golden yellow to copper color with creamy white head. Great lacing. Powerful hop flavor with pine and floral scents. Very simple and nearly perfect.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
[bottle] Hazy golden yellow color. Pungent pine and citrus aroma. Flavors are full of hop power of all sorts- grapefruit, lemon, peach, pine. Really quite an impressive hop mix, with very little malt coming through (but thatís OK with me). Finishes quite dry, with a really long-lasting bitterness on the palate.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2010 From BMan1113VR via trade. The pour was a slightly hazy golden/copper color with a dense, creamy white head that produces great lacing. The aroma was rich pine hops, light floral, fresh citrus (orange and grapefruit) and just a touch of malt. The flavor was dominated by the pine hops with the floral, citrus and malt all coming through nicely. Insanely drinkable. This beer had a certain simplicity and purity to it that I just loved.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2009 Bottle, served around 55 to 60 degrees. Murky/cloudy yellow-to-amber (depending on lighting), white fluffy head with good retention and lacing. Crushed pine needles and grapefruit peel and orange rind. Huge hop aroma. The extra malt really comes through on the initial flavor, followed by rich pine and citrus interactions. Insanely drinkable. Prefer it to its stronger, Younger counterpart.

Um, awesome. Great hop flavor with some good malty-ness as well. I was surprised by how drinkable this was, actually kind of light and very refreshing.

This was fine. I didnít think it was a remarkable IPA. It was kind of boring. The hop profile didnít have a lot of excitement to it.
