3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft. Poured copper with a medium white head. True to its word, the hop aroma was very strong with a little bit of the citrus coming through as well. Very bold hop flavor profile with some of the grapefruit and pine coming through before the big wave of bitterness at the end.
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2017 Draft. Copper color with a white head. Hoppy, herby, and fruity aromas. Tropical fruit, pine resin, caramel, and grapefruit. Lingering bitter finish, almost too much. matts63 (5) - Alpharetta, GEORGIA - NOV 25, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 22 oz bomber poured into TMac 20oz mug. Hazy copper color with thin head. Aroma is piney, resinous with citrus overtones. Flavor is fresh hops up front the fades into a toasty malt and ends with a nice bitterness. Overall, I love this beer; it’s one of my “go to” west coast style IPAs. blkcld5150 (9) - - AUG 6, 2017 does not count

Acquired from Chopz via trade. 7.3%abv. Poured a very huge brownish head, but doesn’t really stay long. Leaves sporadic bubbles and foam with a small ring inside. Dirty patchy lacing. Has an amber/coppery appearance. Aromas of strong citrus and floral hops. Has a bit of a toasty malts scent as well. Strong citrus hop flavours. Nice bitterness to balance out the sweetness. Some nutty malt flavours and hints of spices as well, not too strong. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Smooth and well balanced between bitterness and sweetness. Pretty darn good stuff!

Originally rated on 12/31/08. The aroma of pine was so pungent that it borders on skunky, The body was a slightly cloudy copper color. Mouthfeel was a little stickey but o.k. Flavor had a little malt to it but the grassy, piney hops overwhelmed them, good bitterness that didnt hang around forever. Overall it was a pretty decent beer. john44 (3456) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2017
Bottle. Copper in colour. Mega-Hoppy; piney resinous oily and grass hops. Fruity; citrus grapefruit and lemon. Solid malty backbone. Great stuff. Definitely one for hopheads. Terrific IPA! (2010-10)

As old-guard IPAs went, this was pretty great, although the bitterness always bothered me. Still, a classic. ignorant (114) - madrid, SPAIN - AUG 19, 2016
coppery orange color with off-white foam that although not abundant not disappear in the glass leaving snaps into the vessel walls. The aroma is intense, spicy citrus, with cuts of fresh pine, grapefruit, flowers and final malt nuances, caramel and some alcohol. The palate begins with a torrent of bitter citrus slowly giving way to a mixture of sweetish nuances of caramel and bitter as pine resin malt, grapefruit with a slight alcoholic sensation. But dry finish tour. medium body and moderate carbonation.
