4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap - copper gold with a substantial off-white head. Aroma is intense hops, flowers, citrus, and spice. Iím prepared for this to be another hop overkill IPA, but it surely isnít! Itís a wonderfully balanced, smooth taste and a perfect (for me) bitter finish. Slightly oily mouthfeel. This is good stuff, and I donít like many IPAs.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Darren hooks me up with a bunch of other bottles and cans. Thick cap of white head that sits on a clear gold liquid. Citrus and tropical fruits in the flavor and aromaís. Mango, peaches, and citrus in front of a large base of malt to help the balance. Some green tea flavor. A good amount of dry piney bitterness that lingers in the finish. Lighter in body with proper Co2. Overall, this is respectable in a bottle, so that means it should be pretty nice on draft.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a bottle. Definitely an IPA, but a little light in the hop department for me. Not saying its bad, but just for me needs more bite.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle poured into pint. Golden color with a slight red hue, with about half an inch of off white foam head. Head stays around in the glass for quite a while. Aroma is a citrus hops. Taste is kinda bland, I donít get much hops or bitterness. Tastes pretty bad. This surprised me considering the other reviews I have seen. Possibly a skunked beer, but it is still before the best by date. Ill think about revisiting this one after I try a few more sweetwater beers.

Herbal and lemony finished with a nice malty depth. Quite a powerful beer on the quiet.

I have had this in both bottle and on tap at Epcot DW. I find it to be a really good and a drinkable IPA juicy hoppy and well balanced really nice hard to find in the NYC. I exclusively drink IPA and this should rate higher than this.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Jekyll Island Seafood, ATL.
Nice fresh apricot, citrus hop aroma.
Light hazy amber, offwhite creamy head. Fruity, sparkly flavor.
Medium light chewy body, creamy mouthfeel.
Long lasting non-sticky hop aftertaste.
Strangely enough the chilled glass I got the first time around was better than the non-chilled one.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a nice gold with a thin white head and lots of bubbles cascading up the glass.
Smells of citrus/grapefruit/pine hops with some malty sweetness.
Taste is a letdown after the wonderful smell. Not as much hop character as Iíd like in an IPA. A bitter piney resin lingers on the tongue at the end, but there is also a malt sweetness in the middle.
Beer has good carbonation, but mouthfeel is too light almost watery.
Not a bad beer, but not one of the top IPAís either. Iíd like to have it on draft sometime to see if the hop profile is better fresh.
