A light and refreshing aroma. Hops and citrus. Sweet flavor with a dominant hop flavor. A sweet and light fruit finish. Overall, very nice.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle from Georgio’s, Billerica, MA. A hazy amber pour with lots of floaters and a thin cream head; malty aroma; citrus taste with a long grapefruit finish. A rather average IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy golden, unfiltered, yeast particles present. Nice 2 inch head with nice lacing. Nose is very floral, a little piney. Tastes of grapefruit, flowers and earth. Medium body. Very nice citrusy finish that dries in a minute with lingering bitterness. A winner!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma big and floral hops that have a citrus note, long lasting clean off white head. The malt is supportive of the hops, but the hops are the showcase in this one.

3.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Strong hop flavour. Lacks some of the residual flavours seen in other iPas. Not a training wheels or intro to this style, but is a nice beer to spend an afternoon with

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep gold with a good foamy head. Grassy/Herbal nose. Taste is bitter hops with a strong malt backbone. Full bodied with a lingering bitterness. Not my favorite hop profile; no citrus, no pine, just big & bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Great unfiltered appearance. Nice creamy head and a bit cloudy. Some particulate settling at the bottom. A little bready on the nose, almost a hint bubblegum. I'm getting a strong hop bitterness in flavor but not much in terms of hop flavor. No pine or citrus. Oh well

Seems to be lots of variableity to this one, some bottles are specatular others are a bit off. However being a bit off from perfection isn’t really anthying to complain about.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2014 Pours a cloudy deep golden color with vegetable matter floating in the beer. Foamy white head forms atop, yet dissipates to an 1/8 of an inch cap. Herbal and citrus nose. Full body, a slight carbonation/hop heat burn, and some mild astringency toward the finish. An abruptly appearing and long-lasting bitterness. The vegetable matter seems to hang up in the tongue’s papillae. A bit of mild char flavor lurks behind grassy, citrus hops and some dominated sweet malt.
