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.

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!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A wipe array of odd flavors. The malt is metallic, the hops have been stretched way to far, and there is a really off soapy aftertaste. Does not look good in the glass, .1 point for solid lacing. Looks bad, promising for a second, then bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint on tap at A.J.ís in Chicago. Bright orange appearance and lively carbonation. The smell is hopped-grapefruit and the taste is pure grass. Fresh. Medium bodied. A little too bitter for my tastes. Itís a bold IPA thatís well worth the low price, although Iíd have trouble drinking more than one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is kind of mild. But is citrusy and pine. Flavor is good bitterNess, and a clean palate. Finishes a bit sticky oily. Overall a good ipa. No lacing, clear.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a nice deep orange with a medium white head that dissipated quickly,nice lacing though. Nose is slightly malty,but then pineapple and resinous hops. Medium bodied and surprisingly fresh tasting for a bottle of IPA that is probably 2 months past its prime (bottled in August of 2012), with some grapefruity notes mingled with the malts and some tropical fruit, then a lingering bitter finish. Nice IPA.
