3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, thnx to Secret Santa. Pours a slight hazy golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is massive grapefruits, peaches, orange zest and other citrus influences. Flavor is very hop forward, loads fruity bitterness going on, balanced out by a fairly malty base in the back. The bitter fruit is very nicely present in this one. Carbonation is decent, aftertaste is medium long and bitter. Good stuff!

Is there really such a thing as a perfect beer? This is as good as it gets! Best IPA in America, so far. I’ve yet to have a Heady Topper! I’ll definitely have to compare.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from trade, thanks thrashD. Pours light amber, small white head.Smells like the West Holts field at Glastonbury. Medium carb, lots of oil on the tongue. Flavour is a fight between dank and fruit - big pine but also summer fruit, pineapple, melon, over-ripe mango. Dank, bitter finish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle. Perfectly golden color. Intense tropical aroma of pineapple/tangerine, gently backed by a pine sharpness. Taste is pineapple tartness with a rounded honeylike, malty bottom end. Bitterness lingers in the middle/back of the mouth with pine spice and citrus. My preferred style of IPA. Great dimension for anytime of year.

Bottle from jsquire, thanks Jeff! Pours a golden orange with a white head leaving streaky lacing. Aroma has oranges, pine, other citrus and some fresh fruits. with toffee. Taste is of sweet fruits, oranges, sprucy pine, and a solid malt base. Quite hop-forward. Light to medium bodied and quite dry. Finishes well balanced between the bitter hops and the sweet hops. A very tasty and solid IPA! 14.8

bottle. deep golden with one finger head. big dank hops. medium body. was expecting some belgian elements, but i don’t really detect any -- more of a tropical fruity flavor with substantial bitterness.
