3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big grapefruit aroma, beautiful golden color and big rocky white head. Some light dank and pine, bushy vines, light mineral. Biscuity, honeydew. Mostly sweet finish. Lots of potential here but too bitter and too sweet. This is negatively affecting the body, finish and hop expression. Less bittering, keep dry hops, soften feel, less residual sugar.

Small can into a spig IPA glass. Pours a clear light golden with a nice big white head. Very nice tropical fruit/perfume like aroma. Very resinous and bitter in the flavour with some of the tropical fruit as well as piney notes.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a yellow-orange color with a hops aroma. Taste is simple, mildly hoppy, with a slight bitter aftertaste. A really simple IPA that was less than impressive. Kind of watery and not complex, tastes mass produced.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bomber pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is bold with pine, grapefruit, tropical fruits, and hints of caramel. Taste is a caramel malt and tropical fruit sweetness with a bold pine and grapefruit hop bitterness. Well balanced and tasty. A very well crafted IPA that I thoroughly enjoyed.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at True North in the North Park area of San Diego.
Pour is light amber-gold with fine-grained visible carbonation and a very durable, semi-creamy off-white head. Exceptional sticky lacing.
Smell: strong and pungent (hops).
Taste: Not as intense as the aroma suggests yet this could still pass as a DIPA. Medium-high bitterness. Bitterness is moderated by some malts. .
Feel: medium body; medium-high but soft carbonation.
O: Very good IPA IF you like this hop load ... but not my cup of tea.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours clear golden orange with a large creamy off-white head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is passionfruit, mango, dank dank dank, pine, cat piss. Flavor is light sweet, light plus bitter, dank and tropical. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. A bit harsh on the finish. Very nice beer - not sure why the ratings are not better on this one!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy amber gold. Smells of piney and citrus hops. On the tongue, strong pine notes give way to citrus pithy notes that linger cleanly. Pretty good weight for a regular IPA, not too heavy, not too watery, good carbonation. High hoppiness but pretty easy to drink. Quite a solid all-round IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Skunky aroma, but very appealing. Pours extremely clear light orange with a white head. Good bitter flavors, not too strong. Refreshing, but the aroma is off putting.
