3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle from the Utah State Store. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. A rich nose of citrus, lots of lemon. A really nice flavor: refreshing citrus, oranges and bitter lemon, clean and very tasty. This is a great IPA, simple but very clean and super tasty.

Pours golden with a huge white head. Aroma is piney and citrusy with some mild earthy notes. Taste is much the same but the malt is surprisingly prominent. Good lively carb.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2013 She gives you a beautiful, creamy blonde head on a crystal clear amber, not cloudy enough, but the head stays forever, nice and creamy. Aroma of sweet grapes - good sign of a great IPA, although allegedly itís not supposed to be a true IPA, as it is made of wheat. And it is good! Nice, sweet and hoppy, you do get the fruits, the sweet apricot and the floral, but the use of hops is clever and not just an arrogant attitude, but a little sumpin. Itís kinky and the finish tells you you want a little more of that sumping. Sexy beer!

The "Jewel in the crown" of the recent shipment at the NEX. Clear, medium golden with a white head. Leaves nice lacing on the glass. Has an aroma that sends immediate warning signals to your taste buds, straight up Left Coast hop juice, just wonderful! Some sweet tangy fruity malts that try to balance of the industrial strength hops but they fall a bit short of the mark. Crisp and bracing, I do enjoy this beer and give props to the dreadlocked jazzman from Sacramento I talked with about this beer, you know your stuff my friend! Kampai!

From bottle at Hops in New West. A very medium amber color with medium carbonation. Flavor wise itís hops upon hops upon hops, with a bit of malt backing it up. Very crisp, clean and refreshing. Nice one!

Itís ok but nothing remarkable. Tired it bottled and the first one not in a glass. Picked it up in a build your own in KC when it showed up on the fall beer list.

I drank this out of a glass. You can find glasses in your cupboard and if for some reason you have none, go to a store. My glass was capable of holding the entire beer but ths was my choice, you make your own decision of what your vessel of choice is.
This beer smelled of tropical fruits delivered by fruit vendor in the south pacific. It was golden ruby in color and tasted of rich mahagony and leather (just kidding, it tasted awesome). The aftertaste made me crave more of its type and I did seek others.
You should like this beer and if you donít, then you should find one that makes you crave more beer.

Yellowish gold, Smell is IPA-ish with a little light malt. First the hops hit your mouth with grapefruit, wet grass, and hay. The malts are only there to smooth things out. Just enough to avoid calling this an IPA. A nice warming finish rounds things out.
