Soapy white head with a crystal clear light amber body. This beer is piney. Full, nice hoppy palate. This is a great summer IPA. REALLY fucking good!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2012 Golden-orange hue with a thick white head that leaves nice sticky lacing. The aroma didn’t do much for me and the taste had a bit too much of a spice in it, but overall this is a good beer.
*Re-rated. This beer is so complex, that it needs multiple tastings to fully appreciate. The aroma and taste are better than I originally gave it credit for.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a translucent gold with a thin, white head. Good lacing. Floral hoppy aroma. Do I detect cascade and centennial? I think so. Effervescent mouth feel. Hop bitterness pronounced in the taste, but not overpowering. Great IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ar: Lemon, red grapefruit, hints of sap and pine.
Ap: Clear golden - medium white head with good retention and a nice cap of lacing.
T: Light sweetness with orange and pine up front - lemon, grapefruit rind, and hints of berries (strawberry and blueberry) - high bitterness, but very clean - finish is citrus rind and a little mint.
P: Medium body with medium-high carbonation - finish is firm and dry.
O: Stellar 2xIPA - intense and complex mixture of a bunch of wonderful American hop aromas and flavors and superbly drinkable - really showcases the hops.
