2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to glass. Pale copper color with quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is piney, grassy hops with a honey and caramel malt backbone. I donít get the grapefruit I have seen in the other ratings. In aroma or taste. Taste is piney, grassy, slightly earthy hops with caramel and honey malts. Well balanced, moderate bitterness. Palate is medium body, not the best carbonation, feels a bit lacking. Average.

Received as gift from St Regis Deer Valley. Pours a light gold with moderate head - lighter than typical pale ale. Big nose with lemon and grapefruit. Very flavorful with grapefruit and lemon peel up front, followed by some bready malts - not really any bitterness on the finish. Enjoyable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy thick attractive orange with medium offwhite head and yeast floaties. Smell is amber ale like crystal malt, tea and hops. Taste is tea and medium hop bitterness with kind of a dull hop flavor. Not particularly fresh, or fruity from the hops, but overall it is decent. Full body and prickly carbonation. Just not my prefered flavor profile.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle, best by 7/16/14. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a big meringue white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet bready malts with some grassy hops.
The flavor is sweet toasted malts with some grassy bitterness and a little fruit. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, itís very subdued and sweet and grassy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2015 5/18/2014: Light orange body with white head and lacing. Juicy fruit, malts, a touch of hops in the aroma. Taste is not very bitter, more on the malt side for an IPA, at least the bottle I tried.
Re-rate: 5/2/2015: I like the candy finish on this. Looks the same as my first rating, but while itís not super bitter, it does have a splash of Belgian candy note or bubblegum on the finish ,and resin, which I liked. Upped the rating a bit.

Bottle. Nose is citrus and grapefruit. Clean. Maybe a little too malt forward for my liking.
