UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 In a 12oz bottle. Tangy sweet hop aroma. Huge nectarine-hop flavor. Finishes with sweetness, sweetness and more sweetness. Hops overwhelm the malts just like you?d expect in a booming West Coast-style IPA.

Had at a friends place while bottling home brew. Poured an amber color with a small white head. Aroma was lots of fresh citrus notes, grapefruit is light, some tropical notes of mangoes. Flavor was some pine hops, grass notes, and a nice sweet malt backing.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a thin off white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma has lots of fresh, piney, grapefruit hops.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hoppy (of course!) , more so in the taste than in the nose. Piney, citrusy, mildly astringent, some malt. Deep golden color with off white foamy head. surprisingly smooth despite the hops snap.
