4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy deep golden, with a fine bone white head, recedes to a thin cap and leaves a lot of thick lacing. Very nice looking pour. The aroma is powerful, with fresh floral hops, spruce, peach, sage. Medium bodied, solid carbonation, slightly sticky, lots of piney, grassy, and orange hop flavors, with a crisp, clean, bright, bitter finish. Doesnít feel like 7.3%.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A - loads of citrus fruit, apricot, and mango.
A - poured a clear pale gold with minimal head.
T -sweet malt flavors kept in balance by bitterness. Hop flavors of citrus and apricot & mango agree withthe aroma.
P - medium bodied with a hint of hop and malt stickiness kept in check by good carbonation.
O - Great beer overall. Iíd describe this a Wyldís big brother. Tastes like a fuller bodied version of Uinta Wyld. Which is a complement as Wyld is a fine pale.

Bottle. Powerful floral hop aroma. Clear golden beer with a nice white head that clings to the glass. Sharp bitterness with some spice in the lingering finish. Overall a very good IPA that I will go back for lots of flavor.

on tap at carolina ale house lasting white foamy head. Aroma is understated: grainy with faint notes of smoke and spice and a toasty/bready overtone Smooth and easy on the palate malty sweetness balanced... not too sweet Light toasted character..some fruity flavours with a subdued citric finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Best Damn Beer Shop: Poured a dirty golden blonde color with a thin layer of frothy head across the top. In the aroma, my nose detects a bold aroma of citrus trees and leaves with priority towards orange and grapefruit, however, a sweet scent of peace in the background. The flavor is overly bitter with a heavy dosage of oily green hops that give off a strong taste of spice and artificial citrus flavors. For sure a palate and taste bud puckering IPA.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
32oz Growler, nice fresh batch from mid-December 2011. Served at around 45F.
Pours lightly cloudy yellow/orange/gold with a nice two finger off-white head that leaves beautiful sticky drippy rings of clumpy lacing and holds a nice cap. Purty!
Aroma starts with real nice citrus, mostly tangerines, some lemon, some pineapple, grapefruit, touch of apricot, along with floral, grassy and pine notes underneath, some light cracker malt as well. Very nice.
Flavor is juicy citrus, tangerines, orange, some grapefruit, pineapple, apricot, a little pine and grass, light bready malt, mild sweetness, and very nice bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little creamy, a touch sticky, good carbonation.
Impressive! Iíve been hearing nothing but good things and after missing out on a batch of bottles at the store, I HAD to snag a growler before it disappeared and Iím glad I did. Very juicy IPA, incredibly drinkable and one I will definitely buy again in the future!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer pours a clear golden orange with a white head. A really weird aroma. Quite floral with a little bit of grass and pine. Slightly sweet malt aroma, mostly bread. The flavor is moderately sweet without a ton of hop flavor either. Itís mostly grass and line with a touch of floral hops and citrus peel. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (Jan 11, 2012 bottling).
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is light amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), lightly yeasty (dough, basement), with a light note of dried mango.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/ texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Very fresh bottle. Some tropical fruit in the nose but the hops are mostly the usual resin-and-grapefruit style loved by Americans. Some sugar cookie helps. Much less abrasive and punishing in the mouth than most, making for a nice mouth experience (I could see some arguing itís too sweet for the style, and I wouldnít argue, but itís not syrupy or fatiguing at all and just gives a sense of richness). Overall decent.
