3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very Balanced with a very forward malt profile and finishes with a good hop flavors and aromas....very sessionable IPA and is not over hopped like a lot of the IPAís on the market today.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz can pours with a slightly hazy deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a dirty white head. The timid aroma offers up malts, a touch of caramel, some sweet citrus hard candy and then pine resin and floral hops out the back. The taste begins soft and somewhat sweet with citrus, malts and floral hops. To midway pine resiny mixed with a sliver of caramel malts bubble to the surface. So the bitter somewhat resiny hops and malts arenít working all that great. Still pretty decent IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great IPA, a little cloudy on color, but very hoppy almost an assault on the taste buds, but surprisingly balanced flavor. Good IPA

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a finger of head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma starts with bright mango and pineapple, but quickly turns to a dull dank smell. The change is abrupt.
The taste has a solid and bold bitterness all the way through. The malt attempts to balance it but the hops dominate.
The texture is crisp with a thicker body.
Itís enjoyable. Lots of big hops.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Unclear orange amber. Decent white head. Dry and floral. Flower powder. Not too aromatic at all but enough flavor. Similar to what others have said, this needs to be hopped up more.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Duchammer: Poured a hazy copper orange with a white head. Malt aroma along with light hops. Gritty hops and malt. Does not live up to the name.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Solid IPA. Would I call it a hop bomb, or even a hoppy be-atch? No. But itís good. Nice malt backbone. Malt-hops balance is 1-3. Pine-oriented hop notes. Nice bitterness, which isnít overwhelming. This beerís true problem is that itís misnamed, but I do like it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice looking beer with a towering, fluffy head. Not as hoppy as the name would imply. Malt is more prevalent, nice dark golden body, malt on the aroma, very bready/biscuit. Taste is also predominantly malt, some slight hop bitterness at the tail end. Long dry finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a hazy orange with a lasting white foamy head. Very pretty, no aroma, thin and bitter taste with no backbone at all. Flat and tasteless, but the bitter came through easily. Not a great combination. Disappointing considering the great artwork on the label and tantalizing name.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from QFC, Seattle
Hazy golden color with medium sized compact head. The aroma is mildly hoppy. The mouthfeel is lean and dry; not much malt flavor, but decent hopping, a bit resiny and fruity; some toffee and liquorice in the final.
An easy one, midway between APA and IPA.
