4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2009 The aroma is full of pine and citrus hops with caramel malt. The appearance is golden amber with a two finger head. The flavor is balanced with lots of caramel malt and hops. The pine really comes through. The palate is sticky. Not all that complex but a Fantastic beer!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Pours a golden straw color with a large, frothy white head. Spotty lacing. Nose is a hefty blend of floral and citrus hops, hints of pine and sweet malt. The taste is more hops led by florals and backed up by some citrus and piney notes. A subtle malt sweetness ties it all together. Very good. Thanks to pantanap for sending this as a bonus brew!

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. Pours a light golden/orange color with a gigantic, fluffy white head that leaves amazingly thick lace down the glass. Beautiful hoppy, floral smell, as advertised. Also, sweet, strong, resin. The taste isn’t quite as amazing as the aroma or appearance. It’s a lot smoother and milder than aroma would indicate. Very drinkable, refreshing, and well-balanced with a nice touch of bitterness. Hoppy and smooth. All around a great IPA.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured into pint glass, a very nice slighlty cloudy orange hue. Smallish head; very sticky lacing. Very pleasant aroma of citrus hops. You could almost just smell this beer. Excellent balance of citrus and hops flavor. Just bitter enough, but not enough to pucker your mouth. Predominantly orange flavors with some grapefruit in the mix. Finish is dry and clean. Exceptional drinkability. My favorite 60 minute IPA so far.
