look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

poured from a 12 oz bottle into a nonic, served at fridge temp.

appearance: hazy, semi transparent lemon yellow with active carbonation and a 3 finger linen white head. more than abundant, gorgeous lacing

aroma: awesome blend of fruitiness; papaya, peaches in syrup

mouthfeel: a little on the thin side.

taste: great blend of fruit juices; pineapple, papaya and a splash of grapefruit.

notes: one of the best IPA noses I have smelled since Flower Power or Celebration. Very nice flavor profile. definitely seems like a strong English IPA to me. Alcohol seems well hidden. this is a pleasure to drink.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Serving Type: Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottled on 7/13/12.

Appearance: Hazy, light amber color with a nice white head that slowly dissipates into a thin film with moderate lacing. Nice but not overly impressive.

Smell: Huge punch of aroma. Grapefruit and orange dominate with a nice pale malt aroma in the background. Very impressive.

Taste: Extremely well balanced IPA. Citrus dominates from the hops and is backed up by a delicious pale malt backbone. Very bitter with a smooth finish. Absolutely excellent.

Mouthfeel: Medium body. Semi-dry. Medium to high carbonation. All around great for this style and beer.

Overall: Excellent, excellent beer. An absolutely go-to for IPA's.
