Pours a golden color with a small white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Fruity (mangoes, tangerines), citrus, hop aroma. West coast hop IPA taste. Clean and bitter hop taste. I wish it was just alitle sweeter.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, drunk while watching Tarkovsky at a bland suburban Chicago location. How many peple within a mile of us were drinking Old Style while watching Adam Sandler? Sometimes, its good to be a snob. Creamy medium head, light straw color, intense aromas of butterscotch, apples, cherries and hops, don't forget the hops. Amazingly creamy throughout, a tad just a tad on the thin side at the finish, nice bittersweet balance, nicely acidic, wonderful. And the Tarkovsky (the Westvleteren of directors) was great also.

Golden to orangey color, with fairly little head and low to moderate carbonation. Hops dominate the aroma. Taste is a little thin and definitely dominated by hops. Very citrusy flavor. Good, but nothing special.

Fruit in nose, very light bodied, finishes dry. Not of one of my favorite IPA's. Need's more mouthfeel.

Looks, smells, and tastes like an IPA. Nice color with a thin white head and thick lacing. Extremely hopped which starts out good but ends a bit too dry.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enticing IPA aroma that I love so much, nice white head, kind of thin golden color, piney flavor, pretty well hopped, mildly fruity, good amount of carbonation but kind of a weak mouthfeel. Who the hell thinks up these names? I mean seriously.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear orange out of the bottle with a thin white head and a sweet orange/pine tree nose. My initial reaction was orange flavored Jolly Ranchers. Medium bodied with an orange rind and pine resin finish. Very good with my pizza.
