3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright yellow color with a full white head - looks like a good German Pilsner. The nose turns that perception on its ear, as it is a wonderland of grapefruit, pine and resin aromas. The flavor is a bit more subdued, with strong echoes of the flavors listed above. A nice crisp mouthfeel, with a very dry finish. The only thing missing is the alcohol - otherwise, a perfect west coast IPA. Perfect for day drinking - on an aside, my pilsner-loving, craft-hating wife thought this was really good - high praise...

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.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The first impression is of pine and citrus hops, just like a real IPA, but soon this brew turns thin, watery and show off an appearance of artifical hopping. Not great.
