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

Pours a finger of head on a clear medium straw colored body.
The aroma is lots of citrus: orange, mandarin, lemon and grapefruit.
The taste starts with a strong pine bitterness, moderated by the malt, but still finishes with a dry pine bitterness. Good balance.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
A delicious IPA.

3.55/5  rDev -8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Handsome dark orangey amber in the Duvel tulip. Starts with a nice foam but that dissipates after less than a minute. Thin with a light body that seems to accentuate the acidic tang. Aroma of pineapple and orange peel.

Rather sweet with a sharp taste. This tastes like a Pilsener that had a hop attack. Interesting spicy notes. There is just the faintest fruity note of sour citrus and then the endless bitter grapefruit peel.

A highly hopped-up and tremendously bitter brew that keens on a single sharp note. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Beer Revolution in Oakland.

4.26/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A - Pours a clear copper gold with a finger of fairly dense light tan head, good retention, perfect lacing.

S - Very bitter citrusy, grapefruit loaded hop aromas with a kick of pine.. Sweet tropical fruits are present as well as hidden sweet malty undertones.

T - Grapefruit bomb. Lots of citrusy grapefruit and bitter hops up front, slightly piney as well. Mild sweet bready malts tame the citrus/hop burst. Extremely well balanced yet still fairly aggressive. Malts and citrusy dry hops linger through the finish as well as the aftertaste. Slightly metallic/astringent

M - Great, medium bodied (maybe a little less than what id consider medium), appropriate carbonation (a little light on the carb) fairly smooth, very refreshing.

O - Probably one of the best combinations of decent hoppy aggressiveness and delicious balance that i have every experienced. Great balance of both.

Poured bottle into Sam Adams perfect pint glass

Deep yellow into orange color with slim white head. The smell is bright and hoppy with citrus and tropical fruit. This IPA is bright and juicy. Reminds me of Jai Alai and Odell IPA in terms of the tropical fruit flavor and balancing maltiness. Really delicious and 6.6% alcohol which is lower than most with this amount of flavor. I certainly wouldn't hesitate to go to this IPA. It certainly isn't a citrus bomb or heavy on pine. Well balanced, juicy, and easy to drink.

12 oz to a snifter, no freshness date. Serving this one a bit warm

Pours an orangish gold with 3/4 finger of foam. Good transparency and very mild carbonation. Lacing isn't bad either, this beer meets most the checks of a good ipa

There's an aroma of up front hops with a sweet fruity malt. Hints of grapefruit, lemon, and some pine shine through with a splash of alcohol. Malty citrus is what distinguishes it from other ipas

The taste follows well, very hoppy with a strong fruity citrus. The malt is balanced well which the fruit comes across better with instead of the hops. The result is pretty interesting and well executed

Feel is also on par with the rest of the beer- nice bitter bite backed up with a sticky dry finish. Alcohol's well concealed and this stuff is pretty easy to drink

Overall this beer is probably one of my favorites I can't usually get from my excursion to California last month. Also stands out against many of the ipas I've had so far, something I'd get regularly given the chance
