3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2013 Pours a clear golden orange from the bottle with thin off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma is zesty resinous hops, slight citrus. Taste follows, hints of pine, lots of citrus, no real finish. Pretty decent, but not as good as I was hoping.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of citrus hops with some bitter notes also clearly noticeable. Taste is dominated by huge citrus and grapefruit notes with some floral undertones and some bitterness. Malt presence is hard to distinguish under the huge amount of hops used in this beer. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very good but a little bit too strong on the bitterness in my opinion.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours medium clear yellow with a thin white head that lingers. Intoxicating grapefruit hop aroma over mild carbonation. A bit boozy. Reasonable complexity.
