3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
translucent gold with a creamy white head. resinous medium-full body with high carbonation.
aroma: bright citrusy hops with tropical and pine notes (has a definite dry-hopped / whole cone presence as well), lightly sweet bready malt with medium range crystal notes.
taste: all hops up front, with lots of citrusy whole-hop character; but with a surprising punch of malt in the middle; and then some hop resin lingering in the finish.

Bottle in tulip. Nice deep orange amber pour. Small white head with good lace. Great fruity smell citra hops are powerful. Great amount of bitter too. Really high quality, more drinkable than most IPAs.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2014 Pretty white head. Sticky lacing. Great west coast IPA. Aroma- huge hit you in the nose citrus, pine, grapefruit, and pineapple. This beer came off thicker than I imagined and not as pungent on the pallet as the nose. Definitely can taste the simcoe, and cascade, but it seems tamed down to me. I want this to be a little fresher despite the fact that it was brewed late Dec 2013 and itís only 2/3/14. Apparently, itís criminal to rate this a 3.3. This is a re-rate. after reading what I wrote the first time the aroma of this beer stayed pretty true and deserved a better rating as did the taste. Very palatable beer

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Bottle: Almost perfect amber & copper color with decent clarity, covered by a big, foamy white head that mounts up high & leaves some fat lacing behind as it crawls down slowly. Aroma has notes of both tropical & citric fruits from the hops... Pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine. Subtle malt sugar sweetness balanced by bitter fruity pith notes. Back-end filled with pine, grass, & lightly spicy white pepper. Taste is, of course, hop forward. Notes of white pepper, herbal tea, grass, earth, & dirty hops. Very raw with a strong citric backside; orange & tangerine peel with lighter grapefruit rind & pineapple. A touch of finishing, sweet cracker malt as the flavor fades from the palate. If you can find this one fresh, itís a deliciously citrusy IPA.

Hazy orange colored pour. Big white head. Plenty of lacing. Big aroma of malt intermingled with citrusy hops and toast. Bitter. Plenty of hops in the mouth with a peppery bite. Dry and very bitter. Not bad.

Bottle shared by Jeff. Aroma is apricot and sweet resin. Pours amber and bubbly with a small to medium sudsy head. Taste is great with apricot, grapefruit zest, some tropical and a resin malt finish. Almost an oily feel so it doesnít bitter dry my mouth. Just delicious. I could knock these down all day.

This is a great IPA. The only thing I would say bad about it is little aroma and a lighter color. Great brew overall though. Very enjoyable.
