UPDATED: NOV 27, 2013 11/13: Fruity hop character: apricot, citrus, herbal, pepper. A little earthy. Light malt flavor: sweet, bready.

Sweet, fruity, light bread aroma. Great spicy and fruity hop flavor -- can taste the Columbus hops, for sure. Starts fairly dry, finishing sweeter. Light bready taste in finish and aftertaste. Awesome AIPA... Snake River continues to impress me.

A beautiful beer, has great lacing and a really pleasant aroma of hops. The actual taste of the beer is pretty good but its just a little to bitter for me to drink these often.

Nice gold pour, white head. Aroma is full of grapefruit peel and piney hops. Nice bitter hops on the tongue, some grassy bitterness. Good stuff.

12 oz can from a trade with Gription79. Pours pale golden orange color with off white head. Aromas of grapefruit rind and other citrus. Bitter grapefruit rind flavor with slightly maltiness. Medium body with average carbonation. Thanks Dallas.

12oz can poured into a tulip. From my Summer Secret Santa 2012. Thanks! Pours a clear burnt orange with about a finger of white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Taste is medium bitter. Mostly pine with some citrus and grapefruit. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, great. I would gladly drink this again.

BoostIPA (1096) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy light orange color with a huge frothy head, almost akin to a draft pour. Aromas of bright tropical fruit, flowers, perfume. Taste is also very nice, but there is a big let down in the ultra thin mouthfeel. This has the potential of being a great beer, but I just can’t get over the watery mouthfeel. Still, all in all, a good beer though. Like.

Can, thanks SHIG! Hazy golden with small white head, adequate lacing. Nose is well balanced, some citrus and tropical fruits, grass, as well as some more meatier malts. Fairly clean, easy drinking, light citrus, much more herbal, toasted malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
