On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear amber gold with a white head that lasted throughout the beer and laced. Aroma had a good amount of pine that was balanced by the citrus and tropical fruit notes. Flavor was similar with strong pine in the start the mellows to more of a citrus and tropical fruit finish.

Draft, best offering i had by far. Pours a hazy golden body with a white head. Very hoppy aromatically, honey and pine notes. Some light citrus sweetness and a hint of spruce and grass tones. Finishes like fresh cut grass and hop resinous bit. Very good.

Tap at American Flatbread. Pours a hazed medium copper orange with a nice fluffy sticky white head. Aroma is citrusy hops, grapefruit, orange some lemon pine and some fruity esters mixed in, with light biscuity cracker malts.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at American Flatbread. Pours amber/orange with a 1/2" white head and lace. Strong, sinus clearing, grapefruit hop aroma. Moderate in body with enough carbonation to be interesting. Flavor is dominated by citrus hops with a sweet malt background that becomes more noticeable as the beer warms. This was a good one.

On tap at American Flatbread. Pours a hazy orange gold with a thin white head. Big grassy hops, lots of pine. Medium bodied, big earthy hop notes bleeding through. Nice fat grapefruit bitterness hits quickly but phases out slowly. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
20080914 Tap at brewpub. Standard IPA appearance (these things always look the same in bright brewpub lights to me), with lasting but thin head. Quite bitter, especially at finish, with a good dose of c hops. Mild but persistent diacetyl flavor and aroma, but palate not really affected.
