12 ounce bottle pours a hazy orange with the aroma of grapefruit and hops. This highly carbonated brew tasted an up front cirtus flavor, mainly grapefruit with a huge bitter aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a sampler glass at a local beer tasting party. The color was golden, with decent, white head foam and wavy lacing . The aroma was sharp, astrigent, pine & resin, with some equally potent, white grapefruit, and enough malt to keep some control, but not nearly enough. A light to medium bodied good shock to the tonsils.

Citrusy, piney aromas. Hoppy citrus flavors with a malt backbone to round it out. Overall it is a very very good IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle purchased at MDL in Overland Park, Kansas. Brewed with love on 05 03 2011. Pour is a lightly hazed golden with a frothy two inch white head. Aroma is catty resin, grass, slight floral and a toasty malt. Taste is the resin cattiness right away, turning to a bitter citrus peel, than a bunch of the earthy grass finishing with a thinner toasted malt. Palate is medium to thin bodied, chewy mouth feel, and the dry bitter finish. Started nice, though I was hoping for a bit more body and flavor to the finish. Regardless, nice beer.

Apricot colored with a cm of white head. Aroma is mild citrus, with all flavors more prominent in taste. Rich citrus mixes perfectly with malt, with alcohol , citrus and stonefruit into the finish.

This is a very nice IPA. Poured copper with about three fingers of head. Great lacing as the beer goes through the glass. Good hop balance and just a pinch to the palate.

12oz bottle from State Line. Faintly hazy deep orange pour, with a medium prickly carbonation. Nose is certainly quite grassy and citric, but with floral undertones and even a bit of honey, like a pre-pubescent Hopslam. Mouthfeel is medium, lightly oily, with what seems to be a bit of a bite, a nice effect that balances out the sweetness (which comes on just a hint too strong as the body dissipates). Flavors are really appealing, definitely more grassy and bitter though the sweetness is still very much present. Good, well-balanced brew overall, wish I’d snagged a sixer.
