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)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Many thanks to Stefan SD for this 650 ml bottle.
Golden in the glass, slightly sweet and very intense hoppy in the nose. The beer starts much more bitter than expected. Only slightly sweet in the background. The intense bitter note lies over all - also nearly no floral hop aroma, as the nose predicts. The aftertaste is long, intense-bitter, smooth.
Probably not the freshest bottle, as I miss any of the floral hop aroma. But not bad at all - a decent very bitter brew! --> 12/10/12/11

Bottle shared by a friend. Pours clear amber with a medium white head. Malty nose with citrusy and piney hops. Malty flavor with citrusy zest and piney hops before a semi-sweet finish. Pretty nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2014 Sampled on draft this beer poured a pale golden color with a medium sized foamy white head that left incredible lacing. The aroma was grapefruit, orange and passionfruit. The flavor was grapefruit, lemon, a bit dry and had a hint of tropical fruits. Medium length finish. Medium body. Decent.

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.

Cask at the SD Real Ale Fest 2012. Clear golden amber pour, off white head. Piney hops, sweet malts, bit citrusy, and lightly bitter. A decent IPA, pretty standard fair.

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.
