3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a bright and hazy golden with a medium, frothy white head. Aroma is a bit sweeter, with a good amount of apricot, lemon, clove, and and hints of grapefruit and pine. The taste is very much as you would expect in this style. Pine and grapefruit, lemon, along with the apricot impressions noticed earlier. There is a nice amount of hops and bitterness while not taking these aspects to an extreme level. Medium bodied with an oily texture. Aftertaste is a lemony pine. Overall this one is alright. I would have no problem accepting this when offered, however I would choose many other IPAs over this.

Tasty! I normally donít like a Belgian. I do like an IPA. This is a good marriage with the IPA and hops leading the taste slightly and the Belgian Taking the appearance. Another winner from Sam!

Very tight feel. Medium weight and length. Strong hop flavor on the palate unlike nose. Interesting stone and spice flavors.

Hazy amber with a fluffy meringue like white topper. Grainy aroma with citrus, orange peel and spices. Taste of citrus, greens, mild pepper and orange peel and a mile bitter ending.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 11-11-2013 (Bottle) This beer pours a small smooth white head that mostly diminished, hazy pale yellow body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, a good amount of lacing. The Aroma is wheat, bitter, pine, citrus hops, fruity, and spicy. The Taste is very, very sweet, very bitter, wheat, pine, citrus hops and has a dry finish. The Palate is silky smooth and this beer is light bodied. Overall, this beer is very quaffable, hops upfront as they should be and worth trying if you enjoy hoppy tasting beer.

12 Oz bottle. The beer pours to a cloudy orange color. The aroma has a strong grapefruit, citrus & apricot scents to it. The taste is medium bitter & overall an average IPA for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange beer with a fizzy white head that rises quickly. Subtle citrus nose with a hint of spice, but overall somewhat underwhelming aroma. Flavor is a bit stronger with a tangy sweetness initially followed by a grapefruit hop bitterness. Decent IPA, but not a standout.

Pale gold with a citrine tinge, tall persistent white head.
Full body, smooth texture, bright mouthfeel, long palate.
Bitter all the way to the finish, not too dry,
Grapefruit pith and all, herby,

Nice fresh citrusy aroma. Cloudy straw pour with nice foamy head. Very nice fresh hop flavor. Not the typical SA malt profile. Nice.
