3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tangerine, grapefruit flesh, and pineapple aroma. Shimmering amber, thick white lacing head. Grapefruit peel and pineapple flavor with a light malt counter balance. Lasting grapefruit peel on the palate. Thin body with no alcohol perceptible. Good bitterness, the dry hopping is delicious and obvious, but the beer is rather spinelss. A great beer otherwise.

Poured from a bottle. Very light colored for a beer of this style. Hops dominate the aroma and taste. Very citrusy, very nice!

Bomber. Poured clear, brighter golden with a sticky cap of off-white head.. looked great in the glass! The aroma picked up a fresh bouquet of grapefruit, pine resin, and floral hoppage over sweet honey and meaty citrus fruits.. perfect balance, and it smelled awesome! The flavor found tangy pine resin and grapefruit upfront, with sweet honey-kissed bready notes across the middle.. the bitterness persisted in the same proportions as the nose, and stuck around for a while on the peppery, refreshing finish.. wow! Medium-bodied and spicy through the palate, with great balance.. moderate-plus carbonation.. phenomenal brew!

This starts with a great blast of hops, fading to a caramel malt base. Pours a clear, light-amber, with a full white head. There’s good lacing left on the glass. There’s a nice bitter start, with a long lingering citrus bitter finish. This is an amazingly good beer, and I hope it starts making it into a six pack.

Great work again by Troegs. Aroma is heavy citrus and earthy floral. Crisp and clean with tastes of tangerines, medium sweetness with very light bitterness. The finish is wonderful and fresh tasting. Almost as good as a fresh Nugget Nectar.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle, dated 8/11/11, from total wine in norfolk. pours a bright, yellow-gold with a thick, creamy white head that has solid retention and leaves soapy rings of lace. aroma is great with big fruity hop esters of apricot, peach flesh, and pink grapefruit backed by light tropical notes of pineapple and mango with subtle notes of sweet honey and cake-like malts. flavor is delicious as well with juicy, slightly sweet, fruity notes of peach, pineapple, and zesty grapefruit backed by hints of orange creamsicle, dry grass, and bitter pine needles with dry, crackery malts on the finish. palate is medium bodied and juicy on the tongue with a very mild bitterness making this one effortless to drink. overall, an outstanding IPA.

Aroma of citrus, grapefruit and just a touch of pine. Everything I like about an IPA. Pours bronze with a big bubbly head. Tastes of pine with hints of the grapefruit. Not as sweet as it smells but quite amazing. nice one, troeggs.
