3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a cervoise glass.
Pours golden amber with orange hues; two finger bright white fluffy head. Above average retention and quite a bit of splotchy lacing. Citrus blossoms, grapefruit, and a hint of pine on the nose. Grapefruit rind bitterness right off the bat, met by some lightly sweet caramel malt and pineapple. Finishes crisp and dry with the return of bitter citrus rind. Lighter side of medium bodied, well carbonated, smooth and silky mouthfeel. Solid and enjoyable IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours medium orange/amber with small offwhite head and thin lacing. Aromas of bready malt, citrus, pine and a little toffee. Taste is juicy and sweet to start quickly growing into a citrus bite with earthy hops. Finish is dry.

Pours pale orange with a fluffy white head that lasts. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is sweet hops but relatively bitter bite to them. Well balanced with malts as well. Solid ipa.

Wow. Outstanding aroma -- like fresh squeezed grapefruit and orange juice. Nice citrus flavor, tangerine, grapefruit and some mango. Really strong malty backbone... almost too much for my taste. Still a very good beer.

From Whole Foods. Smells weakly of IPA. Copper colored. Tastes a bit weird and off. I guess that’s a good thing with cheese.

this is a very amazing beer the aroma is a sweet pinapple citrus with a hint of pine. it is a golden amber with nice white head the diminishes to quick but leaves a nice lacing. the flavor is very hoppy with some piney notes and citrus towrds the end. I know this is a good beer when i burp and it taste and smells just as good as the brew itself. this is a great ipa.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark orange color with finger and a half tannish white head that goes down slowly and leaves a blanket of lacing. Smells of light grapefruit, some pine, some grass, oranges, a resinous quality to it, some light bready notes as well as some carmel sweetness. Taste is pretty much like the smell. It starts with grapefruit, oranges, and lemon. Then the malt comes in and balances the beer fairly well. Lots of sweet breadiness. Then the hops of the more bitter variety come back. Lots of resinous pine, as well as some grapefruit and oranges. Nice creamy and smooth mouthfeel to accompany the resinous hops. Medium body. The bitterness lingers after each sip. Wouldn’t mind getting this again. Decent ipa that comes in cans.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2013 12oz bottle. Standard orange colored IPA with thin white head. Hops are quite noticeable, but take a backseat to the malt profile. More of a piney hop flavor and a bit stinky in the nose once it warms. Meh, itâ€™s okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
