4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This was a solid and aggressive IPA in both aroma and body. Quite tasty, though perhaps a little overly bitter in comparison with the fruity or floral notes.

Bottle split with Gail. Pours a clear gold with a large white head. Dusty citrus, spicy hops, a bit of musk. Medium bodied, spicy hops, sweet and sticky. Nice pungent grapefruit into the finish, spicy citurs lingering. Very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy golden-amber with a 2-finger white head. Aroma is entirely of citrus hops. Body is medium-to-full, with a moderate oiliness that lingers in the finish. Flavor of grapefruit hops with some biscuit malt underneath. Maybe some grapefruit peel as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours gold with a white head that quickly dissipates (Brussels Lace). Pleasant and fresh aromas: cereal, citrus. A quick flash of sweet and sour gives way to all bitter. Nice clean palate w/ a little stickiness. A solid offering.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mine pours with a really big head. Aroma is some hops, some, well, decaying grass. Must be a bit old. Taste is decent - lots of citrus hops, some malt sweetness, ABV isn’t apparent. Aside from the bizarre pour, not bad at all.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This brew pours a hazy pale golden color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruit, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of floral hops, stone fruits and toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
With Z, pours a nice shade of golden yellowish orange with a small white head. Nose is sweet deep delicious citrus, with very subtle pine. Taste has more pine and resin with bitter grapefruit. Finishes on the same tasting notes, with a hoppy bitter ending. Quaff Score 7 / 10

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
24 ounce bottle from Hayduke that we had together over facebook chat. A big fluffy head leaves tacky lacing. A little haze in the honey golden beer. Aromas of pine and lesser citrus. Not a wonderful nose. Something a little unpleasant. The flavor is pretty much the same. Some caramel and pale malts for sweetness. Bitterness is moderate. The glass ended with tropical fruit. I liked this beer but it seemed to be a typical Double IPA whereas other Beer Camp beers have pushed style guidelines.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a 24 oz bottle shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours a dark gold with a large long-lasting white head and excellent lacing. The nose is cap pee with citrus and pine. The body is medium plus and the mouth feel is resinous and with a touch of alcohol burn. The flavor is caramel malts and tropical fruits. The finish is not real bitter but shows the fruit and I get apricot at the end. The is not really a classic west coast IPA but is good drinking.
