Bottle. Pours a deep gold color with a smallish white head. Aroma of fresh hops. Taste is very hoppy with a strong pine presence. Very fresh taste. Slighter thick palate. The flavor of pine lingers for a long time. A pretty good beer and a great example of an IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pale golden with monster head. Nice retention and great lacing. Nose is predictable... Citrus, pine, resin and dry hay. Flavor is pleasant. Orange peel, vegetable greens and roasty wood finish. Thin on the palate. Solid ipa, but not the revelation I was expecting

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass. Pours a pale yellow, slightly cloudy but not much, with a tiny off white head. Good lacing. Smells of grapefruit, citrus, lemons and pine. Tastes of grapefruit, pine, and lemons. Not a lot of malt here. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with a drying finish. Good bitterness without being overpowering. Tastes like 2 row with "c" hops. Good beer but I would like more of malt background.

We did a blind taste test between this beer and 4 others to determine which was a better IPA. The beers that were competing were: Stone IPA, Big Sky IPA, Bear Republic Racer 5, Lagunitas IPA, and Full Sail IPA. Here is the video:

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Just like me in the midst of a wild and crazy round of drunken hopscotch, this beer is HOPPY.
Very crisp, bitter finish. I can understand how past raters have claimed its somewhat acidic, with an almost medicinal quality at times.. but still, a great beer.
Those 70 IBUís hit your palate like a fat girl crashing a tricycle.

Good beer, although I am not a big hophead. The hop and malt aroma was great. The beer is crisp with lots of bitterness which lasts way after finishing the beer.

She a beauty! On tap @ Bardenay Boise
for ever! Maybe. Maybe not. Any way the sales donít lie. When this beer is on the rotating IPA handle it sells twice as fast as Bridgeport, Full Sail, Lagunitas, Elysian, Fishtale or Haleís. Stone rules and if you donít agree u r in the minority.
By the way....Great IPA.
