3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler flight on tap at the brewery (Las Vegas, NV). Pours a nice decent hazed amber gold hue, touches of frothy whitish head ring ok. Some orange and amber glow throughout, gentle lacing. Aromas show some nice grapefruit, florals, and grass. Gentle lemon, touch of gumball. Some mellow bready sweetness. Really nice nose even through some cigarette smoke. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, nice juicy grapefruit juice and rind. Some lemon, florals, firm bitterness hits the palate. Bigger citrus element, some bread, gentle resiny hops. Touches of orange, bitter florals. A touch resiny. Middle is firmly hoppy and dry, some good bitterness, florals, and dry hoppy elements. Backend keeps on with dry and bitter qualities, some florals, gentle pine, still a grapefruit forward hop profile. Quite lovely. Really nice.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Golden and lightly frothy, this carries more of a malty character than I’d expect. There’s a little bit of an oily topping in here, but overall, I think most beer snobs expecting an American IPA would find this a bit restrained. That said, it’s quite clean and well made, and frankly, everyone calls just about anything an IPA these days. (#6034, 9/13/2015)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden pour with creamy white head and lace. Full citrus aroma. Full semi sweet maltiness with a nice hard bitter. Good carbonation from a medium bodied beer. The best beer so far here by far for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bomber pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that had some nice retention and settled to leave only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and passionfruit with some spicy hops and caramel. Taste is a bold grapefruit bitterness with some passionfruit and caramel malt sweetness with a light spicy hop bitterness in the finish. A very nice IPA styled brew that was just a little unbalanced for my tastes.
