3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber pours with a slightly hazy deep gold body that supports a tall billowing off white head that has a thin orange hue to it. The aroma is juicy and resiny where I’m getting warm tangelo and pineapple blended quickly into resiny pine hop notes. Behind those big notes are thin murmurs of floral and earthy kind of tea like hops. The taste starts tangelo and pine resin like and pithy grapefruit and then picking up a pineapple and mango. This is juicy resiny and sweet all at the same time. Pretty nice but the resiny notes and the juiciness don’t go together as well as I was hoping. As those notes fade mild notes of floral hops are noticed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden color. Very perfumy, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice in the nose the nose. The mouth has an odd malt taste and comes across extremely light for 9.5%, tons of fresh hoppiness and a ton of grapefruit.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 22. Had an amazing first aroma, but what a let down with the taste. It was too grassy. Like barnyard grass. Beer was way too bitter. After tasting the aroma changed to a horse stable smell. I’m glad I only had to share the second half of this bottle..that was more than enough to choke down.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 22 oz bottle from Uptown Market in Beaverton, OR. Poured with a short-lived, frothy, and rocky head. Looks thin. Aroma is grassy, with notes of vegetable, bread, sawdust, and watermelon. Very hoppy, but not over-the-top bitter. Pretty strange IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bomber to pint glass. Massive tropical fruit, moderate high mint and slight orange aroma. Clean, fresh-shorn wheat in slight support. Slightly hazy pale gold with a full, massive white head. Head is fluffy cloud-like. Taste is exuberant tropical fruit. Moderate cracker wheat malt in support. MASSIVE bitterness, leads to a quick finish. Dry. Alcohol warmth present. This could be amazing with a lower bittering rate, but it was hard to get past that to focus on the positive aspects.
