Jjg226 (71) - Staten Island, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Pours deep golden with thick two-finger head that dissipates rapidly. Good lacing. Aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, grass and a slight whiff of soap. Sweet malt hits the palate first, followed by earthy, citrusy hops. Soapy and astringent finish (and aftertaste). Medium body with light carbonation. Overall, a decent imperial IPA, balanced and well crafted but the astringent finish and soapy aftertaste diminish its drinkability. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear true golden color with lasting half finger of beige foam. Pine and grapefruit on the nose with a bit of malt detectable. Flavor follows the same, with a solid representation of hop bitter thought the sip, not too balanced by malt. Finish is slightly dry and mildly bitter. Good, but not my favored characteristics.

Hazy orange-gold with a loose white head. Aroma is lightly piney with some odd talcum powder notes. Malty flavor with plenty of hop bitterness. Alcohol is well hid. Full bodied with a long pleasantly bitter finish. Definitely worth having again.

12oz bottl. 5/1/17 BB date. Appearance: Deep golden with a touch of orange, hazy, with a moderate foam cap and nice lacing. Aroma: Typical west coast IPA aroma of strong grassy, resinous, and citrus rind hoppiness. A touch more sweet, bready maltiness than a normal west coast IPA. Taste: Wow, wasnt expecting this hard on the aroma... Starets with really sweet maltiness with some caramel undertones, and a strong dank, resinous, and garlic like hoppy flavor that builds into a strong bitterness that balances well against the maltiness. Mouthfeel: Pretty heavy body for an IPA, with a low to moderate carbonation. Finish: Dry and sticky on the tongue, with some caramel malt, but the bitterness is the dominant factor. Overall: Maybe a bit too much maltiness to feel like a true west coast IPA, but thats not a bad thing as the overall depth and intensity of flavor was a surprise against a stereotypical west coast IPA aroma. With the strong maltiness, bitterness, and relatively heavy body for the style, this is definitely a slow drinker
