5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is the best IPA Iíve every had! Tons of aroma from the first wort hopping that lends your palette a floral and citrusy note. Some of the hops include citra and simcoe which gives a bit of grapefruit flavor to it. Itís not as hoppy as most IPAs because of the malt thatís added to balance the intense flavor. Not to mention, it won 1st place at GABF in the IPA category! Definitely recommended!

extremely well balanced beer without the overbearing hops that any of the hoppy beers go for today with an incredible floral or grapefruity aftertaste with a nice long tongue searing aftertaste.....an incredible beer

Aroma is mildly hoppy with notes of citrus fruits (tangerine and grapefruit). A crisp, smooth beer that tastes of the afformentioned citrus fruits. One of the better IPAs Iíve had. Delicious.

I tried this at an event during a recent trip to SLO. It poured a rich amber color with lots of carbonation and a thick head. The smell was a strong citrusy/fruity/hoppy aroma with just a light malt and caramel smell. The mouth feel was rich and full with a malty caramel start and a citrusy hop finish with just a light bitterness. This is a nice crisp refreshing IPA. I thoroughly enjoyed it and canít wait to get my hands on some more!

Draft: nice lacing on the glass, floral notes are amazing with citrus, has a nice grapefruit taste that you can enjoy without it being over done with hops. A Well done Ipa

Advent Calendar. An excellent IPA - smooth and drinkable, yet bitter and hoppy in the right places.
