3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2012 Toasted orange color,mild head,some lacing.
Aroma has a toasted malt,light floral herbal peppery pine.
Taste is light bodied with toast light carmel and hops piney peppery bittering with grapefruit.Something flat about this though,its pretty sessionable but somewhat flat and watery in the middle.There is a roasty dryness to this also with a little yeastiness. Somewhat disapointed in haveing a whole sixer of this. I dont mind the aroma and flovor of the hops but is not one of the better ipaís, its a pretty standard ipa but with a toastiness.

Pours a rather hazy copper-yellow. Little to no head--quickly dissipates. Aroma is one of rather muted hops. Flavor is a good, basic citrus/bitter pine hops combination, though there is just a bit of a chemically aftertaste. Not terrible, but not all that great either.

1/6/12. 12oz bottle. Slightly hazy orange barely off-white head that fades but laces in rings. Light dank, citrus hop aroma that is surprisingly nice. Light flavor as well with dank hops, citrus, and a bit of caramel. Not bad...

Pours a cloudy dark amber with significant carbonation and a thin head that quickly dissipates. Aroma has notable hops and malt. Strong bitter hops taste with some spice on a thicker and effervescent palate. Sour and bitter hops aftertaste.

Wonderful citrusy hop aroma with hints of caramel maltiness coming through. Looks like a clear IPA in the glass with suitable-good lacing. Definitely an IPA in flavor even if the IBUs are a bit low. Wow does the American hop flavor come through, very nice. Even has grassy notes but not in a bad way from the abundance of hops. However I get just a touch of medicinal edge on the finish, a product of one or more of the hops I suspect as Iíve experienced it in my own way over the top DIPA. Malt & caramel flavors are well balanced. It has a Wonderful silky smooth mouthfeel, perfect. Overall this brew is everything except bitter enough for a standard IPA. Just a touch of alcohol comes through, itís very drinkable (probably enhanced by the lower IBUs). Far too many IPAs are publicity and glitter, this one is simply good. A surprisingly straightforward hop delivery device emphasizing flavor and aroma over bitterness.

Gold pour with off white foamy head and lace. Aroma is huge resiny hops. Sweet caramel malt with a nice finishing bitter. Very sweet. Medium/full bodied with good carbonation. Pretty nice beer.

Bottle. Pours a deep copper with a huge slightly off white head. Aroma dominated by floral hops. Flavor is quite clean and hoppy and leaves a tingly feeling on the tip of my tongue. Not overly bitter. The hop bite is bold up front but not aggressive. Would pair well with spicy foods such as Southwestern or Indian cuisine.
