3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Best by 12/27/2013. Pours a cloudy orange frothy head. Smells faintly like pine, citrus, grapefruit. Tastes like a lot of the same, some sweetness from the malt. Decent balance. Mouthfeel is fine. Overall an ok beer that tastes like it could be fresher. Doesn't live quite up to the hype I've heard, honestly.

Great hoppy beer. Full hop aroma. Copper in color. Good blend of hops and malt. Bitterness from the hops, but it doesn’t linger as the malt calms it down.

Can, from dresden-- thanks Steve!-- shared with my father in law. Hazy golden with a lasting off white head. Very piney/grassy hop profile, fresh and pungent, crackery malts, long bitterness. Tasty.

Blind taste poured by my wife from a 16oz can. Copper color with big off white head. Aroma is juicy citrus pear booze. Hint of malt as the base but this beer is all about the booze and the 110 IBUs, grassy, piney hop flavors with long lingering grapefruit hop bitter finish. The 8% feels more like 10% in this one. as it warms up it improves significantly.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Semi-hazed sunny orange appearance. Resilient off white foam. Mandarin orange and mango aroma with supporting needly and familiar floral bitterness. Caramel sweetness filters in and this also affects the flavor enormously. Tropical hop flavors are featured but lack the electricity found in better examples; crystal malt’s grating, dull sweetness is distracting as ever. The palate is relatively clean given this, with lean carbonation; oily, blank bitterness in a long finish. A mash-up of old and new within the style; neutral.

Pours a nice red with off white head. A nice enjoyable Midwest spin on a West Coast IPA. Worth trying for sure.

Fluffy white head. Very nice aroma, hoppy grapefruit. Straw/copper appearance. Excellent grapefruit and lemon flavor in the mouth. Aftertaste has a little bit of skunk. I like this, but the aftertaste takes a bit off the score.
