Not much to complain about on this amazing brew here. Beautiful Pour, delicious hoppy flavor and that familiar bitter aftertaste that you would expect from a top notch ipa

Split bomber from Brunos with Sherm1016. Pours a bright copper with moderate white head in snifters....very nice. Nose is pine / citrus with slightly bitter initial taste. Mellows a little as I work thru it....tough work!! Very nice. Wish it was fresher...noticing some ’older’ dates on SN bottles lately....this one was bottled 4/24....drank 8/2....getting spoiled by local beers like Half Acre or even Maine Beer company that get us beer inside a month. Oh well....life is tough!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014 ’Fresh hop’ - new packaging (nice) - piney/fruit hoppy aroma carries through to palate - distinct, but low, malt impact makes for easy drinking - well balanced - but... not as vibrant as I remember from previous years maybe because there’s that quintessential American accent of herbal/piney-ness present and I’ve had a lot of NZPA’s that lack it while being super-fruity vibrant using similar hops - A good solid tasty APA but falls short of a great one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap @ Cock and Bull / Covington KY ---Clear medium amber, thin rim head, light dots of lace. Taste is sweet malt with a peppery edge that adds caramel and pungent spice in the palate, gliding easily from there to a carbonated, lightly bittered finish. Full-bodied, rich, appealing.

Great, slightly cloudy, golden colour. Muted aroma, can smell some piney hops. Tastes dull, not as full as of expected - quite bitter but not well balanced. Palate is fine, a little watery for mine. Not the best IPA

Bottle thanks rciesla. Hazy orange copper pour with tan head. Floral, citrus and other grassy hop aromas. Floral, spice and herbal hop flavors dominate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 4/24, drinking it 7/18. Bottle pour at home. Darker orange color. Sticky off white head. Peach and apricot aroma. Taste is mild bitter and fruity tropical. Good hops. Overall a pretty tasty IPA but the 98/100 rating seemed a little high to me

Pours a nice white foamy head. Appearance is a nice copper color. The aroma is hoppy with hints of sweet malts. To taste it is a bit pungent but with a nice hop finish. Lingers on the palate nicely.
