aroma was very weak,slight citrus..the appearance was somewhat opaque and hazy.the taste was very bitter and overwhelmed the malts,which were nice tasting.very unbalanced.one the palate was light to medium and average at best.i was disappointed in this beer,since it had high ratings.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle pours a pale golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that settles down to reveal some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine and citrus. Taste is a pine and citrus hop bitterness with a grainy malt sweetness. Light bodied with decent carbonation leaving a tickle on the palate. A great IPA that can be had all evening long and enjoyed.

Bottle from Bo Brooks’ Lighthouse Liquors, Baltimore. Golden, with a slick, white, head. Grapefruit, grassy hops and a sweet malt aroma. Flavour had plenty more fruit, and rich and sweet malts. Finish was dryish. Good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp thin dark yellow. Light head. Moderate hop scent with some malt sweetness. Strong hops with balanced malt. Citrus and pineapple. Mouth drying. A bit of Mellon. Would not miss a beat drinkin a few of these and saving some ABV and probably some calories.

12 oz bottle. BB 11/15/14. (World Market) Chattanooga, TN.
Slightly cloudy golden colour with a small white head.
Super fruity aroma with tropical fruits, pineapple, peach and mild grapefruit. Some fruity sweetness and mild maltiness in the aroma. Great!
The flavour is fruity, piney and resiny hoppy, mild bitterness and only a tad of maltiness. Very thin.

On tap. Pours a light clear gold with light head. Aromas of pineapple/tropical fruit, resin-y Pacific Northwest hops, and light toasted malts. Flavors carry the same but disappear quickly leaving a light watery middle. Lingering bitter finish. Good attempt for an ISA though expecting more.

2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Uff-da...all bitterness and no balance :( Bottle pour with thin white head and decent lacing, hazy yellow color. Pleasant hop aroma, but taste is pure bitterness with bitter finish. I enjoy a well-hopped ale, but this does nothing for me. Actually it's worse than that, it's so poorly balanced it's almost offensive. I've tasted (and enjoyed) higher-IBU beers, but the complete lack of malt back is a travesty.
