3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My first sample from this brewer and it was pretty good. Not the pine or citrus aroma I was expecting after reading the label. More biscuity and malty. The hops show up in the taste with a lot of bitterness well balanced by the malt. Nicely done. I look forward to another of their brews.

Orange with a medium white head. Aroma is citrus, lightly sweet, some pine. Medium body. Flavor is nice bright fruits, light pine, enough sweet malts to add some complexity but not drown the hop bitterness. really refreshing IPA and one I’d like to see in front of me more often.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours chill hazy golden with 1-finger white lacing head. Nose is Sculpin-like, a medley of tropical fruit, citrus, hops, black peppery hints. Tastes hoppy, citric, with pineapple, tangerine, peppery notes, and some metallic twinge. Lively palate with more tropical citrus as it warms. A bit malt light, but pretty good.

Golden Amber pour with a slim white head. Aroma is citrus, lemon, piney hops. Creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is lemon citrus, honey, orange zest, pine resin, light floral sweetness, and a hint of herbaceous bitterness. Good.

Draft. ABC beer co. Straw gold color with thin head. Aroma is strongly herbaceous and slightly sweet. Taste itself is very balanced, piney, and clean. This IPA is drier than sweet and all around very pleasant.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Buddha Beer Bar. A super IPA from a brewery I had not heard of before. Herbaceous and fresh brew, not sweet or harsh, but not too mellow either. Subtle with grass and lemon notes. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
April 1, 2011 - draught at Blue Monk. Slightly hazy amber-gold with a decent lasting creamy/frothy off-white head. A little up-front metal in the aroma, definite citrus bitterness and light resin - some alcohol, not much - the metal detracts some ... Taste is really pungent - catnip and spruce (no metal at all), funky grapefruit in the finish, some alcohol. Average body, decent carbonation, a really long pungent palate grabbing finish, leaves a dry grapefruit pith coating - work on that aroma and this is really, really good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle. Hazy amber gold color topped by a rocky off-white head. Piney hop nose. Bittersweet toasted malt flavor balanced by a subtle grapefruit hoppiness. Very smooth and nicely balanced, somewhat light bodied for an IPA. Finish is bitter and lingers nicely.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a big beige head that leaves a little lace behind. Grapefruits, oranges, zesty citrus rinds, a moderate amount of pine sap, and a touch of caramel in the aroma. Goes down relatively medium-bodied and just a tad sticky. Some caramel and a little breadiness upfront taste-wise. A biscuity middle. Plenty of drying grapefruits, oranges, and citrus rinds at the end. A solid IPA.

Really great IPA with significant hop character with such a low alcohol percentage.
