3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Heavy grapefruit with some caramel in the nose. Pale straw color. Hops are upfront in initial / mid continues bitterness and some sweetness spreads / hop bitterness takes over again in final. Medium body. Certainly well-hopped stuff, but overall a standard, unexceptional US-style IPA. Decent.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Disappointing IPA, hoppy but with a muddled profile, lack of distinction in flavors.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a decent beer. Nothing great, but a nice and light tasting IPA. Great for summer time. Aroma was alright. Light malt, caramel and notes of citrus. Pour was a nice cloudy light gold with a one finger off white head that left quickly. Taste was light and refreshing. As the commercial description says, itís a perfectly balanced beer. Not very hoppy which newcomers to craft beer would probably like. The sweet malt, iced tea and caramel flavors are balanced by pine and citrus hops in the finish. If you wait a few minutes between sips, the hops come out more and dry the mouth. Decent carbonation. Nice run of the mill IPA

Pours a clear orange/gold with a big coarse head. Aroma is citrus, flowery hops. Taste is bitter hops. The balance seemed off at first, too bitter but toward the end it got better. Good mouth feel, over all a solid IPA.

Pours amber with no head and little lacing. Aroma is mild grassy hops. Flavor is solid balance, not overly aggressive.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
My new favorite ipa... and for $7.99 a 6-pack you canít go wrong. The citrus and pine combination is balanced perfectly and the taste lingers in your mouth sip after sip asking you to drink more.

Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich hops, caramel, pine, peach, flowers and malt. Sweet and hoppy finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine Sacramento. Fairly thin, disappearing head, nice bitterness. Bonus point for the renewable power stamp.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Deep orange, looks like a thick IPA. Pinky finger of white head, lacing will occur. Nose is very fresh with a strong presence of esters, for some reason I think of a sugary apple. Taste is fruity and slightly malty up front; this is accompanied by a lasting, yet somewhat mellowed, bitterness. Mouthfeel is slightly thick like I predicted; sweet with very little carbonation. Good brew, would like to see a better malt backbone though.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep straw with slightly fluffy white head. Light hippy aroma, too light to pick out maybe a bit grassy. Flavor is a decent hop profile that lingers throughout to the finish. Not bad
