4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the can at the Redrock Grill in Wichita, KS. Poured a honey mahogany color with an off-white head. Big citrusy pine floral aroma. Taste is complex, with citrus and pine, an interesting sweetness, perfectly balanced and never overpowered by the 110 IBUs. This is one fine IPA, and one I would gladly order again. In fact, I had a second one tonight.

Pours copper / orange with a large off-white head. The aroma has tropical fruit, pine, earth, toasty malt, caramel, mild sweetness and a great balance to everything. It has a medium clean body thatís a touch rough and has fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts with pine, grapefruit, tropical fruit, caramel, spice and hints of cotton candy. The finish is resiny, grassy, piny and spicy. Quite dry. Great IPA.

Pint at ITAP Soulard. This beer was clear and coppery. Just a little off white foam. Not a really big aroma. Some fairly complex fruit. This beer begins with malts leading. They are caramel but more than that and are quite nice. Then those complex fruits enter and are tropical. Just a little grapefruit is next. The finish was then more dry with a different hop. It was a lot of fun taking this through a few temperature changes. A very well brewed beer. One that is tasty enough for everybody but also challenging for those who like to find different flavors.

This can was sent to me courtesy of Doran in Missouri in a trade. It poured an orange color with a beige head and excellent lacing. Very attractive. Good start. The nose is citrus and pine with passion fruit. Resin mouthfeel and a medium to full body. The flavor screams hops which ride on a nice caramel malt backbone. The finish is dry and bitter. This is is right up there with the better west coast IPAs. Very enjoyable.

16 oz can. I am not a fan of IPAs. If you like them you would probably like this one. It tastes like all of the other "great" IPAs Iíve had.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from can, pours a bright orange with a white head and tons of lacing in the glass, the aroma is of juicy citrus hops with a lot of tropical fruit mixed in, right up there with the big boys from out West, the flavor is dialed down more than those, but still packs some wet fresh hops and some fruit, a little bit of garlic in the finish, but thatís kind of expected with this citrusy of an ipa, not bad at all.

Amber - orange color. Modest head. Aroma slightly sweet and hoppy. Taste is well balanced with a slight citrus finish. A fine example of a west coast IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. BB 2.12.14. Pours amber - nice lacing. Nose has loads of fresh floral notes and mild pine resin backed by caramel malt aroma. Tastes creamy with good malt structure, very pronounced hop profile throughout - sticky resiny notes of mangos and pineapples, some passionfruit and mild piney flavors - pleasant fruity/floral bitterness coats the mouth and lingers for a long, long time. This was apparently a very fresh sample and it was extremely good- even rivaling some top west coast ipas.
