look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Dull copper with a 1 finger white head. Lacing is soapy

S- Ruby red grapefruit, tangerine for sure, and some melon. Not overly juicy, but clean and inviting.

T- Follows nose, but takes it up a notch. A bouquet of citrus and fruity hops up front, then a wave of doughy malt. At first you think it finishes smooth, but then a fashionably late bitter tone comes nocking at the door late...giving that "west coast" style it claims.

M- Mid body, clean, crisp, no booze.

O- Impressive. Just a really, really well done IPA. I will certainly pick up more next time I have the chance.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottle purchased at Pace High Carry-Out in Columbus, OH.

Pours a clear golden dark orange, with a 3/4 inch head and globs of lacing down the glass.

Bright and vibrant citrus aroma, quite dank. Slight herbal smells too.

The overarching citrus character carries over into the taste as well. Definitely some orange, pineapple, and grapefruit. The only malt character I can pick out is honey sweetness, whit ich complements the juicy hop flavor well. Not very bitter, doesn't linger on the palate very long.

Starts a bit sweet, but finishes dry and slightly crackery. Medium body, crisp mouthfeel and low carbonation.

A great IPA, been looking to try this one for a while now.

After its recent 2nd silver medal I decided to review an old stand by
Poured into a Voodoo Tulip glass from a 12 oz bottle that is 2 weeks old

A- A clear medium amber color,maybe a finger of white head that clears quickly, leaves a lot of good lacing. I'm more of a fan of murkier IPA's. That is just me though

S- You get pine right off the bat and lets you know this is heavy on the Simcoe. Smells like a basic west coast IPA. You do get some grapefruit/pine apple once it warms up. I'd like the smell to project a little more but it does smell good.

T- Resiny pine good-ness, Grapefruit zest, Tangerine, light cracker like malt, slight sweetness up front. The ibu's hit your middle then front tongue. The bitterness is pleasant and does linger a bit. This is where the beer shines and I think that is whats most important

M- Thin bodied but certainly not watery. Good usage of IBU's. great bitterness.

O- This is a stand by in this area and you can see why. Very underrated beer that should be getting a lot more attention from national beer drinkers. Classic west coast style IPA but it does fall short of the upper echelon IPA's. Do yourself a favor and get this beer if you haven't.
