4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2016 On tap poured into a shaker. The aroma is mostly pine with a note of pineapple, citrus, some stone fruit, chalk, and a very floral quality. A fluffy, creamy, cloudy white head sits atop a clear gold orange body. The head retains quite well with a puffy island of head left floating by the end and it leaves a really plentiful sheet-like lace. The taste is a medium sweetness with a medium-high bitterness. The medium-full body that?s a bit thin texture-wise, but rather creamy; aided by an active carbonation. A buttery toffee note starts off the mouth feel, and this gives way to a mellow pineapple flavor, followed by a resin, grassy, and citrus note at the finish. The finish is mostly clean and crisp and leaves behind a heavy resin and chalk aftertaste that lingers.
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2017 A beer for all occasions and moments. Clean, crisp, refreshing hop notes. Great taste of centennial hops to this beer. Just can’t get enough of this beer. ereichle01 (3) - - JUL 5, 2017 does not count
Hell of a beer. Appropriately hoppy with a nice finish. Not a palate killer. Maybe it's the level of malts because it finishes so well. Great forward IPA at first

We had to travel to another state to find it, but we finally got our hands on this famed brew. It is still very good, but not like BEST BEER EVER I thought when
i had it a few years ago (VT breweries have spoilt us). It pours a nice orange amber color best viewed inside of a mouth on a moving train and has an odor of wheaty orange with faint gym sock. The taste is a smooth bitter hop ride with a pronounced maltiness. It is very smooth and easy drinking, like an IPA/amber ale hybrid. Despite the 7% ABV, this is almost more of a sessionable, every occasion utility beer that goes down way easy. Good for late night binges of Vice Principals and train rides back home after long, amazing, exhausting weekends with your boo boo. Fujimo2000 (166) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Pours golden with a lasting off white lacing. Super dry piney front that lingers throughout. Just the right amount of dryness.

Draft at Margaritaville at Universal Studios Florida. Mostly clear, amber color with a little white head. Piney and fruity aroma. A fruity sweetness up front with a medium bitterness in the finish. Nice.

Amber pour with a thin one finger head. Aromas of malt, pine and citrus fruits. Initial taste of lemon, followed by a sweet malty body; flavors of apricot, orange and peaches. Medium body with a crisp creamy mouth feel. Strong hop character with a semi-sharp bitterness and a bitter dry finish. I love this beer. One of my favorite IPA’s. apopielarz (22) - - JUN 18, 2017
Good enjoyable, drinkable American IPAA could be a little higher on hops in the flavor.

I do not like IPA's. However, if I were to drink one, I would drink this one.
