3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a bright golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma is a nice blend of citrus and malt. I find lots of grapefruit, pine, orange, mango, with some heavier caramel underneath. The taste seems to be more mild in citrus than many of this style. I get a good amount of caramel and pine. Grapefruit is still readily present, but isn’t dominant. Underneath there is breadiness, lemon, and slight peach. Aftertaste is a short piney grapefruit with lemon. Medium in body, sticky in texture, with a good amount of hoppiness. It does have a good hoppy kick in here. This is a good beer, close to being really good actually. If the impressions were a little stronger this would be something special.

Pours a crystal clear classic golden color with a white head. Resinous, sweet, citrusy nose. Mouthfeel is goo for the style. Slick and wet with a little carbonation and some hop warmth. Big citrus and umami flavors. Some pine lying underneath. Strong effort.

Bottle to beer mug
Aroma of flowers, grapefruit, and mango.
Bright clear amber with a small ring like head. Taste is flowery, orangey, hoppy and surprisingly smooth for an IPA. This may be the most session able IPA I've had. Nicely done.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Got in a trade with TopsecretWaffle. 12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Light gusher upon opening. Pours moderately hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, passion-fruit, peach, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, floral, grass, honey, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Awesome aromas with great complexity of hop notes with a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of tangerine, peach, pineapple, passion-fruit, mango, floral, grass, light pine, honey, bread, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Decent amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pineapple, peach, passion-fruit, mango, floral, grass, light pine, honey, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice flavor complexity of citrus/tropical hops; with a nearly balanced malt backbone and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, smooth, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent IPA. All around nice balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

On draught at Freakin’ Frog in Las Vegas. This beer is a clear amber-gold color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and roast malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, malt and pine. The finish is hoppy with a grapefruit aftertaste. Decent overall.
