I found this IPA to be very refreshing and the hops were great in bringing out the best in this beer. There was no bitter aftertaste but, instead, there was a nice appealing light fruitiness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle courtesy of TheHOFF43 pours with a slightly hazy copper body that has gold edges and supports a dirty white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up thin notes of citrus and floral to spicy hops as well as a neutral sort of malty sweetness. The taste delivers an even mix of hop flavor and hop bitterness that’s a blend of grapefruit, floral and spicy hoppiness. Behind the modest hoppiness is a smooth subtle backbone of sweet malts. Interesting IPA that achieves a light hoppiness that grows on you the more you drink.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nearly clear, golden orange with a half finger, off white head. Aroma has big notes of orange citrus, pine, resin, and is slightly floral. Yum! Taste is a pronounced bitter with a solid, bready/caramel malt backbone. Pine, resin, and orange citrus with a drawn out, resiny aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Resiny in the mouth with a very dry finish. Overall this is fricking great. Lots of orange, pine and resin balanced with a strong bitterness. Yum!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange golden. Good sized frothy creamy white head. Sweet hoppy fruity aroma. Medium body. Good balance. Sweet. Fruity. Grassy. Moderate gassy grapefruit like bitterness. Semi oily. Too sweet for my pref right now maybe? It has alot going for it but doesn’t quite tip to excellent for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle - Pours copper with a one finger off-white head. It has a citrus hop aroma. The flavor is balanced as IPAs go with assertive hop bitterness and a sweet malt backing with a hint of caramel. Medium bodied. Pleasant enough lingering bitterness. To me it’s a fairly good IPA but not quite as good in its style as others have rated it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle, although mine looks different than the picture. maybe I got a fake. I hope not. anyway. nose full of dank with some earthiness and moderate notes of citrus and pine. hazy orange pour with small head. initial taste is a touch sweet and fruity like a cantaloupe with some pineapple flavor too. bitterness kicks in quickly and kicks in a harsh astringency. I wish the sweetness and bitterness were both toned down to allow more of the hops to shine in the flavor. the drying finish from the bitterness is rough on the tongue. Half way through the glass I’m adjusted to it, but I think my tongue feels like someone grabbed it and ran it through a grinder and then stuck a hairy toupee on it.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Typical ipa hoppy aroma but more sweet and less BO. Yes, from a bottle the first taste impressions are IPA, fer sure. Rather dull but not fully processed flavors. Date code 3/16/14. Yes, typical tasty IPA, even tho I don’t get this style it is rather IPA-ish. Perhaps not as much as this site rates it in its style but OK, I guess. Goes down fairly easy when the second half is drank write from the bottle. Decently weak co2 but bare able. Still, it has this nasty on style finish as with most bitter ipa.
