2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light orange with an ivory, foamy head. Piney, hop aroma with grapefruit and sourdough. Moderately strong bitterness that hangs on for a little while. Medium to light bodied, with the carbonation making it feel lighter. Remembered this being better on tap at Muddy Waters with dinner, by itself from a bottle - i didn’t enjoy it as much.

Bottle from alpar! Thanks Alex! Pours light copper with an off-white head. Aroma is pine, resin, florals and some dankness. Taste is sweet with citrus and some sharp bitterness that is ultimately balances nicely. It’s a little perfumey, but really, pretty nice. I could see myself putting back o few of these.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasty IPA, big and grainy and herbal, with a pungent hop middle that rolls into a huge bitter finish. Starts semisweet, with a great earthy malt middle, and then the hops explode into an oily IBU finish, funky and strong with a lovely citric herbal backbone. Finishes hoppy and happy. Very nice IPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2013 Hop heavy in taste and aroma. Notes of grapefruit, citrus, and pine. Nice and deep gold. Palate is full but not overwhelming. Overall, when you get it 3 days old on growler you can really beat it! Best IPA ever!

On tap at SPSBF. Pours a clear gold with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a really nice dank pine hops with a bit of marijuana and a hint of a malt back bone. Flavor begins with dank pine up front that mellows to earthy pine and grass with a backing light grain note.

22oz bottle from PortableParty, Pour is a nice orange color with a lasting thin head, nose is hoppy, taste is hoppy with a surprising balance, no really, it is balanced perhaps due to hop fade.. a little thin but still quite tasty

On tap at the brewery. This is a good ipa. Aroma has citrus with hops. Dry, bitter flavor with more citrus & flowers. Good palate, and very fresh. Its not balanced, it is hop-forward. And that is OK.

Bomber from Skyview, thanks! Clear amber with a very large beige crown. Aroma of grapefruit, mango, citrus, caramel, tangerine and dough. Taste of moderate citrus, grapefruit, caramel and vegetal and vinous notes. Pulpy with a citric acidic finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden/lt amber color with a thin tan head. Aroma has a touch of sweet malt and some musty, spicy hops. Flavor has some tea and spicy hops...nice bitter...some underlying maltiness but not too sweet. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is dry wit a touch of hoppy spice.
