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

A - A somewhat cloudy copper with a good lacing that leaves nice, large bubbles clinging to the side of the glass.

S - Citrusy, piney resins jump out first, follow by herbal stones with a hint of starfruit. A good bready malt profile rests beneath, leaving implications of sweetness.

T - Malt front with citrusy elements giving way to a big bitter thwap. Overall the malts hold up but are balanced strongly with the bitter. The hops give more by way of bitter than flavor, lending to the style. Overall balanced, nothing jumps out too strongly, except maybe the bitter towards the middle/end.

M - Thick and almost oily, with a good slurpy carbonation that carries the beer along.

O - A solid pale, maybe a little overly bitter for the style, but I'm not surprised given the brewer. A good beer for an IPA who is looking for something with a bit more balanced malt profile.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a Unibroue tulip Very fluffy white head, soapy lacing, light copper in color. Aroma is extremely hoppy. Earthy, lemony, piney, grassy, marijuana-y hoppy dankness. The aroma of a great double IPA actually. Taste is juicy with grapefruit-like bitterness, mild caramel malt in the background. Not a pale ale for beginners but extremely delicious and nicely hopped. Very nice, very drinkable. More like an IPA but who cares.

A: A clear filtered deep yellow orange color with a two finger off white head.

S: Hops, there are piney notes to this with a subtle caramel-malt backbone.

T: The taste mirrors the smell perfectly. A light refreshing tasting beer that is excellent on a hot day.

M: A little light but it's a pale ale, and maybe a little over carbonated.

O: I believe it is between this and row 2 hill 56 for the west coast equilivant of Zombie Dust. Great beer.
