Iím not huge west coast IPA fan, but you canít go wrong with this bitter bomb. I like a little more going on in my beer, but this one does piney bitterness to a tee. Highly recommended, but be ready for a "knack knack".

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Now bottled in 12 oz. for 11.99 a 4 pk. Aroma is soapy and piney, dank. Pours a nice clear orange/golden. Flavor is very hoppy and slick from oily resins. Soapy, piney and bitter. Claiming it is 8.2% now, itís still as drinkable as ever. Always one of the best IPAs out there. This is the beer that got me hooked on craft beer 12 years ago. It still stands out in a sea of IPAs.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Malty and hoppy aroma, some piney and some fruity. Get a peachy mango like hop aroma as well as the piney. Flavor is very balanced and full. Nice malt balance to the hops. Primarily get a piney resinous hop flavor with a bitter finish. Would like more citrus hop balance, but is a very good beer if you want more piney but still very balanced.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Gold pour with a tight, long lasting white head. Aroma is huge - citrus, pine, malt, resin. Taste - slightly sweet, floral, bitter but not overwhelmingly so. Grapefruit comes through a little as the bitterness starts to fade, then it feels a bit thick and syrupy. Fantastic beer

12 oz. bottle. Appearance: small white head, straw color, clear, great lacing. Aroma: heavy citrus, resin, grass, spruce, light bread, caramel Palate: medium body, sticky and somewhat dry texture, lively carbonation, bitter finish and lasting. Taste: very crisp, almost cider like sweetness at first, followed quickly by the lasting and growing bitterness. Overall, lovely IPA, with wonderful aroma and taste. Canít help but love this beer.

Olor a pino, resina y pan, galleta, caramelo de naranja, mandarina.... Sabor a lķpulo muy intenso, es casi como masticar lķpulo fresco, aunque no es tan amarga como sus trillones de IBU indican, deja la boca pastosŪsima, casi una anestesia, parece que has comido kaki. De cuerpo suave y agradable

Bomber from world beers. Pours a nice golden amber. Scent is a strong hop and floral one. Taste is very hoppy one. Grapefruit also. Hops linger for a while. Beautiful beer.

Its ok but itís not spectacular, I was a little disappointed given the reputation this has. Shows that you can believe the self promotion of the brewer. Donít get me wrong this isnít bad, its just not íthatí good!
