4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz can from Total Wine in Greenville, S.C. compliments of Zizzybalubba (Thanks Playa!) Light orange hue, murky clarity with mostly lasting 1 finger thick white frothy head. Okay lacing, sediment floating around the bottom. (Maybe this is normal for this beer?) Strong grapefruit, lemon, grass, summer, citrus hop, light malt as the beer warms. Light grapefruit up front with a light citrus finish, but you get more malt as the beer warms on the finish. Crisp, oily, light carbonation on the palate. Straight forward, solid, refreshing IPA. Westbrook does it again!!!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes. Rcvd in trade.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing coating the sides of the glass nicely.
The smell had a nice spicy yet also a bitter citrus hops overpowering some light malts that maintain their sweetness in the background.
The taste was mainly sweet and spicy that lead into the same aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. I would say that this was fairly sessionable with a nice sharp carbonation pounding my tongue into submission.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA well worthy of having again.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Color is a hazy yellow (looks like a Belgian ale/tripel almost) with a small head. Very good IPA this, bursting with flavor. Lots of grapefruit, some pine, some caramel malt sweetness to it. Flavor is big grapefruit, some maltiness to it as well. Complex, but well balanced. One of the better IPAs I’ve had.

Pours copper with a dense white head. Citrus, pine, and resinous aromas. The flavor is well balanced with some malty sweetness and moderate to high hop bitterness. Lemon, grapefruit, pine, and floral notes. Medium body with a semi-dry finish.
