3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly gloudy golden color with a medium white head. The aroma was absolutely fantastic...plenty of piney and citrusy hops...bitter orange, lemon, and aloe vera. The flavor was a little disappointing...somewhat hoppy (not nearly as much as the aroma would make you believe) with some ashy tones, pine tree, with just a touch of toffee. The feel was a little too thin and watery for my tastes. All in all this is a good IPA, but I think with a thicker feel and a hoppier flavor this would make a phenomenal double IPA.
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2017 밸런스가 훌륭하지만 한국에서 찾기 어렵고 상당히 비싸다는 점을 생각하면 실망할 확률이 높다. 보통 이런걸 찾아 마시러 간다면 이 이상의 무언가를 기대했을 것. eallenbrown (15) - - JUL 4, 2017
Super balanced IPA that maintains its complexity on the malt side, it seems like. I'd like to see a bit more hop differentiation, but a very prototype IPA, and a good model for the class.

Clear yellow orange pour with a white head. Great lacing. Strong citrus and pine aroma with some toffee in the background. Taste is orange, pine, grapefruit, and a little toffee sweetness. Very clean bitterness. Great beer. AWISLguy (3109) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2017
On tap at Tap and Handle in Fort Collins. Had a few times before, never rated. Excited to have again! Citrus. Pine. Sweet malts. Normal ’west coast’ inputs into a strong IPA. Tasty. Well done, as ever, with RR. 14.6 tricksta_p (4663) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2017
From tap at Toronado, San Francisco. Aroma is fruity hop, biscuity malt, tropical fruit, pine and light caramel. Flavour is above moderate sweet with a firm bitter finish. Body is medium. Pretty great balance and good ’finesse’ to this piny fruity malty IPA.

All I can say is Wow Wow Wow. Blind Pig has to be the best IPA I have ever had. Very full bodied and citrus hops just explode in your mouth. vbeer (14) - Barcelona, SPAIN - MAY 2, 2017
Tasted side by side w pliny at apex in pdx. Much more mild than pliny. Juicier too. Grapefruit. Orange zest. JBell14 (99) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - APR 14, 2017
Bottled 3/14. Pours a clear golden/caramel color. Sweet malt aroma, but the aroma is not as strong as Pliny the Elder. Similar crisp pine flavor with more citrus on the back end

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, pine, bread, hops and citrus.
Clear/hazy golden/amber beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium white/off-white head.
Starta medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, orange and pine; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, hops amd citrus.
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Shamefully it is filtered to oblivion, ruining the appearance and palate more than it should. The aroma is good and the flavour is great.
