3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nearly clear amber pour with a 2 finger, creamy off white head. Aroma of juicy citrus, fruity and pine hops, some biscuit, caramel, spicy hops maybe a touch of pineapple and mineral water. Flavor is sweet caramel up front, toast, cereal, spicy hops coming in rather quick, followed by a little toffee and melon, citrus, and pine hops to the fairly bitter finish. Medium body with a creamy to syrupy entry, more syrupy feel after that and a medium strength, slightly sharp carbonation. Good stuff overall, I like the juicy, fruity hops up front.

Deep gold-light copper, clear, off white head. Aroma of piney hops, biscuity malt. Flavor: grainy/biscuity malt, piney-resiny hops with mild citrus, clean and crisp with a little lingering bitterness in the finish. Refreshing and well- made.

Great aroma of floral and citrus hops. Some grapefruit, peachy citrus like hops with a nice malty backbone. Taste is malty with the same hop profile but maybe a bit of piney resinous finish. Almost tastes more like a double ipa. Full flavored and very good. A bit more bitter finish than I like but an ipa I would definitely buy again. I like the aroma better than the flavor, but if you want a mix of piney and citrus this one works well.

@ Jungle Jims / Eastgate - Clear dark copper amber with a snow-white head that drops to a head cover, curtain of lace. Taste is caramel malt that fights its way to the finish before finally being overtaken by pursuing pine hops. Both bitter and sweet linger deep through the finish. The delay makes it interesting, as well as recommendable.

Tasted from can. Pours a clear gold with white head. Big citrus aroma with hint of pine. Taste is citrus hops, pine, flowers. Just enough malt to balance it well. Nice crisp dry bitter finish. Medium bodied. Very good IPA.

Pours a cloudy orange. Thick, long lasting off-white head. Smells of grapefruit and pine. Taste very similar to how it smells. Very sharp pine followed by a candy like grapefruit and tangerine. Bitterness lingers but isn't overwhelming. There is a nice resiny finish. Very refreshing beer. Good west coast IPA.
