3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 I first got this on draft at Si Bueno in McCall, ID. Clear amber with white head. Nose of citrus and pine. Medium body. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is nicely bitter and the finish is dry. Excellent. More recently I got this in a can (via six pack) again in McCa;ll, ID. This shows great craft beer can come in a can.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
tap at brewpub August 2012-man, this place is crazy!! It was Boise State Football night so everybody in the place was going nuts! Pours dark orange with a hint of haze with a small eggshell fluffy head. nose is piney woody hops straight up C hops. Flavors follow suit-tons of pine, resin and lasting speriment like bitterness. damn this is bitter-lasts forever! Very dry and lush body with nice carbonation. I love the huge pine here-very much my type of IPA. Textbook example here! Awesome!

THis is a big, hoppy citric IPA. Amber color, clear. sampled at RBSG 04. Even though the commercial description says it’s well balanced, I found it to be a one dimensional hop monster.

Pours a light orange/golden color with a small white head. Strong floral and citrus hop nose. Taste starts faintly sweet and malty but quickly fades to a nice hoppy, bitter end. Very smooth with a dry finish and some good hop tastes left behind.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Comes out of the tap an attractive, somewhat hazy dark amber. I’m not sure about the head, since the server didn’t allow for much of one, but it did leave some scattered lacing. Aroma is strongly hoppy and evergreen with an undertone of sour orange. Flavor is evergreen hoppy, like any really good IPA, and has a sour citrus undertone that is mainly orange with hints of grapefruit. Texture is quite fizzy and edgy, leaving a nice hoppy tingle.

RBSG 2004, from a growler: Hazy orange with a small white head. Grapefruit aroma, starts lightly bitter and ends very bitter. Crisp ending with a long aftertaste, full bodied and lively carbonated.

I have to agree I had this one back in July and did not have the pleasure of drinking it out of a proper glass. This is a great tasting beer going down, not to heavy and not to light, but just right. Very hoppy and citrusy, if you liked SN Celebration you will definitely like this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. can from Buckeyeboy. Thanks again! This one pours a rather dark golden orange with a stable off white head. The aroma is a good, standard piney, grapefruit, hints of caramel IPA. The flavor is the same. Good body, not too much caramel malt. Solid bitterness. Summer fruit, pine… strong finish. Nice one.
