WTF is that ?
A massive aroma and nice looking.
what a surprise when I took the sip, horrid shit, compared to the aroma at least. Well, it was fun to have though.
Its like the brewer forgot something in the process.

Coppery in color, small head that lasts. Smells of hops and citrus. Not overwhelming, not brilliant, but very pleasant. Flavor was nice- alcohol is very masked behind the well placed hops. This beer is hoppy, but also retains other flavors. This is a good American IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has a nice head, but disappears quickly. I liked the aroma, which was citrusy and hoppy, but the flavor was too hop heavy with no balance. The finish was a bit too bitter, and the mouth feel was just so-so. There are definiteyl better IPA’s out there.

what a let down after the aroma filled the aroma, just simply stunning aroma! The beer was almost flat, to watery, very dry hops and a bitter finish.. awful palate

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy yellow-orange with a pillowy medium off-white head. Very citrusy, spritzy, almost sweet aroma with minimal pine. Flavor is likewise citrusy and fruity, somewhat sweet, with a creamy but thin body. Pine pokes through the citrus on occasion. Malt is somewhat bready/toasty. Much better than their lame APA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange in color. Great hop aroma, citrusy. Taste is similar to the smell. Good overall balance. Has enough hops in flavor and bitterness but not over the top. Highly recommended to try.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice cloudy light golden color. Faint hop, citrus aroma. Big bold hop flavor makes it very quaffable. Finish is clean and dry. Not bold but a satisfying IPA.

Draught at Jack’s sucker beer bar, S.F., CA. 05.23.04 Didn’t labor over this beer, just a quick sniff and sip. Reminds of DFH 60 Min. Pine sap hoppiness; quick, but chewy finish...lots of body but not lingering. Another California IPA. Good, and more balanced than many; still hop heavy, even for an IPA.

Hops is all that’s needed to describe this one. This golden colored IPA is all hops and citrus in the nose. Immediatly upon hitting the tongue the hops go to work. Not too overpowering and fairly light bodied. Good stuff from start to finish, and long afterwards.
