4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2015 This is a citrus bomb. Grassy and thyme aromas. The combination of less dry fruit and pilsner malt in an DIPA are unique and brilliant. 9% alcohol well hidden.
Superb mouth feel and worth seeking out. Really nothing like it. In my top ten, maybe top five.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft: I enjoyed this a lot more than I anticipated that I would. The wonderful bitter bite of citrus with a lingering bitter aftertaste. ABV hides away in this nicely.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Hazy golden pour. Nose of juicy fruit gum and florals. Tastes of mango, grapefruit skins, resin, gum, dank, herbal, and maybe cuz it’s in name but I’m getting ranch dressing. Slightly odd plastic aftertaste.

Bottle. Well, this is art. A soft, approachable, full-flavored and aromatic IPA that happens to clock in at 9%? How’d they do that? This is delicious. Mango and pineapple, most certainly. Great hop choices in here. Wonderful beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - hazy gold - fairly thick lace - nose of sweet pineapple, mango, orange, plus some moderate alcohol, some grassy hoppiness - soft carbonation a flavor is a bit peppery and a bit alcoholic, but only mildly so - fairly clean malt character - fairly sweet, but with assertive enough bitterness to balance - a little chalky on the back end, with a bit of aspirin character - moderate tropical flavors - a bit of alcohol heat on the tail end - okay.

Juicy tart stonefruit burst with a crisp lingering bitterness. Flavor is semi sweet and full bodied. Outstanding!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Top notch. Strong hoppy aroma. Good color and mouthfeel. As expected, typically strong west coast IPA with lingering bitterness that slightly overshadowed the malt base.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden in the glass with an off white head. Aroma is tangy citrus and floral hoppiness. Light mouthfeel, a bit sticky. Juicy pineapple, orange pith, some light biscuit, and flutter of booze on the finish. Tasty.
