4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a pint glass. Golden towards copper color, transparent with a half inch of dirty white head.
Honey, wet malt, citrus and floral. In that order and a really nice blend.
Bitter early on and then it builds up all the way through the finish. Grapefruit dominates. This is all IPA. Interestingly mild at first, but your weak IPA fears are quickly put to bed within a half a second.
Light to medium bodied, crisp and clean. Light carbonation.
Absolutely solid IPA with no apologies. The smell and taste are tops.

The aroma is light bitterness with a malty sweetness. Tast is smoth and malty with some back of the tongue bitter hops finish. Leaves a mild orchard fruits aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden brown with a thin pale head. Hints of citrus in the aroma, along with sweet malts. Roasty and malty flavor. A bit burnt with some hop background. This beer has lots of flavor, but it is a bit heavy for my liking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Imazato shared by Taro. Terminal gravity IPA - a lovely copper color with a pine needle hop aroma. Soft bodied. The taste is woodsy earthy pine and a bit floral. A very solidly balanced old school IPA.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Phenomenal. Pours beautiful golden auburn, more on the dark side of that visual mix. Great blend of hops. Some malt, nut, a bit of spiciness. Has almost a slight porter feel to it, but there’s a pleasant lightness. Just amazing in the blend. Goes down so easy, I could roll through several of these. Definitely a top IPA experience.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
"I’m gonna have to side with Travis on this one. Probably not the freshest of bottles, but since they didn’t date it, they can take the blame. Kinda stale, overall boring ass ipa. More malt driven with lightly fruity and tropical hops, but substandard. Didn’t even finish a 12. This was a shot in the dar, and it missed the mark."

Pours out a darkish amber, small foamy head, hops dominate, burying any malt characteristics. Biggest drawback for me was a dull metallic finish, and the flat hops bitterness obliterating any other flavors.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Lee fridge. Pours a copper orange with one finger head. Mild hops in nose; more of a British bitter vs 'regular' IPA- same in initial taste and palate. Good to very good.
