3.93/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

From notes. 12oz bottle poured into a Riedel beer glass. Didn't see the date but the person who brought these to the tasting said they had just arrived on the shelves.

Appearance: Mostly clear amber colored beer (a hint towards the golden range of the spectrum, but still some orange present) with just a hint of haze. Very impressive thick white head with lots of lacing all over the glass.

Smell: Grapefruit, some papaya, and a hint of pine. Quite hoppy - not detecting much underneath all those aromatic hops.

Taste: Everything one would expect from an AIPA. Hop flavor up front, with pine and citrus, a solid malt middle, and then quickly going into a hoppy bitter finish. The bitter finish does not linger long on the palate though. Bitterness was grapefruit citrus.

Mouthfeel: Just right carbonation and thickness. Not as much hop oils sticking to the teeth as I would have expected.

Overall: It could be that by this point in the tasting my palate is getting tired even with good swigs of water in between beers, but this one I view as nicely balanced and drinkable, but not really "wow" outstanding in taste and flavor. Still, enjoyable and well done, just not as high as many others have rated to my taste buds and nose.

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

Bottle (no date) poured into my HF stemmed tulip...

A - Light orange in color with a nice frothy head. Very stick lace all over the glass and good retention throughout

S - Strong citrus aroma.... Oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, lemons, grassy

T - Huge hop bomb! More of the same citrus in the flavor, the slightest of malt in the backbone and some bready notes

M - Real light body, thin mouthfeel, hard hop bite on the finish

Overall, really reminds me of a Stone IPA. Real dank and citrusy. This is excellent and glad I got a chance to try it.

Huge thanks to mtomlins for this one.

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, grapefruit, pine resins, floral hops, sweet caramel and light bready malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some citrus, grapefruit, floral notes, bitter pine resins, light caramel and some bready malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a low-med carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas. Great IPA but it's just a touch too malty for my liking.
