3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a golden color with a 2 inch head that recedes and leaves alot of sticky lacing on the glass.
Smell is of citrusy hops and slight yeast.
Taste is citrusy hops with a slight twist of lemon. This is a very balanced and smooth IPA. Not the punch or bite that the Hopslam has(which I love). This has a very smooth mouthfeel that makes this beer HIGHLY sessionable. This is a beer that you could pick up a sixer and take to a party and not have any problem drinking all of.
I would highly recommend this beer to anybody.

Xmas gift from MrBendo. #7703 Aroma of citrus. Hops aromas remind me of Stone IPA. Slightly hazy and very gold in color. Perfect appearance for an American IPA. Flavor is very floral. Jasmine and fruity pebbles with a hop bitterness palate.

Hazy yellow-golden color with a medium head. Very stong hoppy aroma. Taste is slighty bitter, with evident grapefruit and the powerful taste of hopps. That deScription did not due this beer justice. Very well balanced, amazing beer.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2007 bottle. batch 7703. Poured hazy yellow/amber with a medium head. Fair lacing left as the head dissipates slowly. Strong floral and citrus hops aroma, with some malt. Flavor is grapefruit and pine. A little pale malt to help the balance. A pleasant, dry finish. Medium to light body. Excellent IPA.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2008 This is my favorite IPA. Itís a beautiful copper-orange color and smells like a floral garden of hoppy goodness. Taste is no disappointment either: bitter with lots of hops and citrus, with a superior after-taste that is pleasant and crisp. Incredibly well-crafted session IPA.
