3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2013 Sampled at American Craft Beer Fest 2010. Pours a golden color. Aroma strong of citrusy/floral hops. The hops initially dominate the flavor but it has a malt and apple flavor at the finish. A pretty good beer.
Edit: A bit better when had on its own and not at a beer fest. Very floral.

On tap at Pacific Standard. Hazy. At first I got a lot of dusty bread and a little dirty socks, but as it warmed this malt character became more refined and crisp. Very fruity hops. Grape. Very much like Masala Mama.

On tap at Hawthornes. Pours a golden color with a small off white head. Nice pine and citrus aroma detected when it was placed on the table. The bitter hop flavor was nicely balanced with a malt sweetness. Very smooth and easy going down.

THIS IS AN IPA. I, to this day, would have to say this is the 2nd best IPA I have tasted. It is truly a great beer. The hops stick to your tongue, making you crave a refill almost instantaneously.

I really enjoyed this beer. It has a nice orange glow and the first taste is what I would expect (The bartender had mentioned that it was fairly bitter).
I liked the finish as it was clean and fruity. These are all characteristics that I look for in an IPA so overall a great choice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Poured a copper amber. Nose is sweet,hoppy with a touch of malt. Well balanced ipa with some sweet hop notes and a boat load of malt balancing it out. Solid bitterness runs through to the finish. Nice session ipa.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2010 Location: Draft at the Brass Rail, 5/19/10
Aroma: Melon, peach, resin, pine, crystal malt, floral notes
Appearance: Hazy orange, white head, lots of white lace
Flavor: Bread and crystal malts with a crisp, floral, hoppy, bitter finish
Palate: Mouthfeel is dry, medium body, finish is very crisp
I’m knocking off stuff I can’t believe I haven’t rated before tonight, not intentionally, but that what they’ve got... This is a good IPA. I like the pronounced, crisp finish, it works well here.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This IPA pours a dark golden color with a very generous and soft white head. The nose lends a ton of hops, with earth, yeast and caramel malt mixed in. The body is extremely smooth and drinkable. The flavors are very well balanced and delicious, with notes of dry citrus, earth, pine, light yeast and malts.
