Not a bad ipa but not my favorite. Very biting and grassy in taste. Okay. Not super impressed.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Somehow hadn’t gotten around to this one. Sharp tangy grapefruit nose, some thick caramel behind, a bit of stinky fruit, too. Light copper/orange color, thin head, some lace. Tasty hopping right away, begins to balance in mid, but hops re-emerge, with a bit of burn in finish. Medium body, a bit of hop texture. Well, nothing is really outstanding, but somehow it all adds up. Pretty damn good (and I’m not a huge fan of the brewery, overall).

12 oz bottle. Appearance is clear, pale amber color with light, creamy off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange peel, with floral and alcohol notes. Taste is hop bitterness up front with flavors of grapefruit giving way to a subdued sweetness. Palate is light on the tongue, somewhat viscous texture, with a bitter finish.

Brilliant golden color, clear body, with ample fluffy white head. Sticky lacing as I progressed through the glass. Very fresh and aromatic...strong floral and citrus scents on the onset. Slightly peppery finish. Huge pine flavors with grapefruit and other citrus notes. Some bready biscuit flavors as well. Well-balanced with plenty of zip from the hoppy goodness.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2014
A glowing, clear amber body supports a fading tight white head creating dense, intricate lace all around
Aromas and flavors display a lean, balanced glow of grass and pine, grapefruit and orange, pineapple, and honey on a silky smooth, lightly creamy, light plus body finishing and resonating with restrained malts, citrus and tropic heavy, pine and grass playing a supporting role, one of the best lean IPAs there is, which makes it one of my favorites
