4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow, this was a really good IPA. I’ve heard a lot of buzz in homebrewing circles regarding Citra hops (sold out a lot of places) and I have to say I didn’t understand the buzz until I tasted this beer. A light orange body that is clear but not brilliant under a soft white head. Aroma is very citrus-y with a lot of pineapple notes. Bitterness is quite apparent but not harsh in any way. This beer has got its IBUs in all the right places to make it extremely drinkable. Mouthfeel was smooth and good. This was a very good beer.
I had this on-draft at Rozi’s Wine house in Lakewood.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber with a thick ivory head, splatters of lace. Taste is malt that is dumped on by pine hops. But, like a drowning man, the malt keeps reappearing. Strong, hop dominated, but eminently drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention. Aroma of citrus and piney undertones is quiet nice. Taste is also dominated by citrus notes with light piney notes also observable. Bitterness isn’t too intense with floral notes as dominant as I would have expected. Body is about average with good carbonation. Tasty beer with well balance bitterness level and great hops aroma. I would have liked flora notes to be even more dominant but still a very enjoyable IPA.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Six pack from 101 bottles. Pours an orangeish. Thick frothy head and lacing. Great tropical pungent aroma. Mouthfeel is super thick... Maybe a little too much. Taste is super tropical and skunky. Very pungent and dank. More le an IIPA. Really good but hard to drink more than one.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
"cory, who sent me this delicious elixir, is pretty spot on in his review. this has a west coast citrus aspect, a tropical fruit (think pineapple and peach) aspect, a sweet caramel toffee aspect, and is super fresh in the bottle. big and smooth. the label looks like a half US flag, half English. British malts? Idunno...either way, this is an elite ipa. $4, really?"

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle received in trade with awlcordell. This honey gold beer is clear and has a one finger gold tinted layer of foam. First sniff was tangerine but then spices and citrus. The flavor is bitter onion with brown sugar, citrus, and tropical fruit. This is a hop bomb with little in the way of malts tasted. There is some sweetness underneath, though.
