3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Gold with an off white head. Flowery hops, with lighter piney notes on a moderately sweet malty base. Not quite as hoppy as it could be, but still a solid IPA.

Balanced drinkable IPA. Rich copper colour with creamy head. Easy drinking, almost a session beer!

A little underwhelming.. esp. with the label cautioning a "hop explosion". Still, a nice well balanced beer. Not west coast in the fact it delivers quite a bit of malt flavor.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2012 Bottle at lucky lab. Pours copper with a small white head. Aroma is all grapefruit. Taste is pretty damn bitter with a lot of grapefruit sweetness. Overall awesome local brew.

Nice strong 2 inch+ head of fine off-white bubbles. Lots of citrus in the aroma with oranges, mild malts and some cereal grains. Color is a clear light golden orange. Hmmm, bit of roasted malts, orange peel and some hoppy bitterness. Not a very sharp bitterness at all. Kind of a mild sneak up on you dry bitterness that fades quickly. Rather bland flavor. A bit oily on the palate with some lingering grapefruit pith. An ok IPA.

Bottle at Oliver Twist, May 2012.
Clear light amber with a small white head. A lot of grape and hops in this one. Not bad but a bit one-dimensional. Bitter finish.

Ganska stor humleton. Mycket besk och aningen entonig. Fin fyllighet. Helt ok men saknar frukten. Ganska rå.

Bottle, pours a copper color, slightly clear. Awesome foamy thick head and lacing streaks. Aromas of fresh hops, melon, tangy orange, grass. Taste is a smooth and hoppy caramel orange profile. Not too bitter, very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Massive hop and biscuit aroma, golden body and strong foam throughout the sample. Hops are there but the alcohol sweetness is battling bitterness for my palate. Tastes like a strong 2XIPA but only an IPA. Great beer but with a few tweaks I predict this would be a five star IPA.

Bottled. Poured hazy medium orange with a tall, creamy, sticky white head. The aroma picked up spicy pine and grapefruit over soft biscuity malts.. hops seemed a little muted, but the balance was right on. The flavor found a lot more of the biscuity malts at the core, along with a kiss of honey.. moderate earth and grapefruit bitterness around.. more bitter and spicy on the finish.. things seemed a little broken down, but it was still aiight. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. OK feel and flow.. I’d love to try this super-fresh sometime.
