On tap at the brewery.

Pours a golden orange with a white head.

Nose is citrus, grapefruit, and pine. MMM very nice hop profile here.

Tastes is very hoppy with a grassy floral profile. Very nice work here.

Mouthfeel has a crisp hoppy carbonated feel to it.

Overall this is a very well done ipa and I would love to have it again.

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

appearance - golden orange with a good fluffy white head. about an inch or so when handed to me at my table.

smell - citrus and grapefruit come first, then some heavy pine. i like this. some grass/floral. my kind of hoppage.

taste - more bitter than the nose, but definitely the nose is there.

mouthfeel - bitterness is short and sweet. body is medium for the style. carbonation is great, a bit over carbonated maybe for some, but for the style, perfect id say.

On-tap at Blue Palms

A: The pour is essentially the same orange color as the IPA with a finger's worth of white foam and mild lacing.

S: The citrus aroma is fairly pungent and mostly consists of grapefruit. Plenty of pine forward hops, too, along with a more mild grassy aroma.

T: More of the same on the nose. Lots of bitter grapefruit and pine, seemingly more bitter than the regular IPA. The malt flavor is subtle and just sort of like a dry, boring bread flavor.

M: Medium in body with a fairly high level carbonation and lingering bitterness.

D: I thought this was better than the regular IPA, but maybe I was just swayed by the Dry Hopped descriptor. In any event, still not amazing, but quite good.

One more from the Quinquepartite release at Avery tonight. Poured from the tap a nice medium golden color, with a good fluffy white head. Nice juicy, resiny hop aromas (bubblegum, citrus), but not as much as expected. Pretty similar to the regular IPA taste-wise, decently hoppy with a nice bitter finish.

Served in a pint glass at the Avery tap room. Golden with a haze. Lots of carbonation. Beautiful white head that produces copious lace. Grapefruit and, to a lesser extent, caramel are present in the aroma. Bit of a carbonation bite up front. Not as sweet as one would suspect from the aroma. Very well balanced. Healthy and long bitter finish.

Note: ABV-6.5 IBU-69 (tastes much higher, though)

Pours a golden tan with a nice beige head. Good lace and retention.

Nose has fresh floral hops, candy malts and citrus fruits.

Taste has bitter hops up front and through the finish. Well balanced by bready caramel malts.

Medium body has a crisp carbonation and hoppy finish. Tasty stuff.

On cask yesterday for The Porter Beer Bar's first anniversary. This version was dry-hopped with simcoe. Served in a tulip, hazy yellow-orange color. White fluffy creamy head...quite striking. I could smell the simcoe from 2 feet away. Incredible aroma of sweet grapefruit and resiny hop dust. Tastes like a grapefruit creamsickle, with a side of floral bitterness. Light in the body. Touch of hop oil on the finish. Mouth pleasantly blasted with fragrant hop. Refreshing and very drinkable.

A wonderful hop delight that was perfect in the hot mountain sun under a clear sky!

Looks medium golden with pretty egg-white head. Smells of wonderful amounts of citrus, spicy hops -- an absolutely beautiful smelling beer that invites hop heads to dive in.

Big amounts of acidic citrus, spicy, bright, clean and very fresh hops. The dry-hopping (Centennial and Simcoe, I believe they said) adds such a burst of fresh, aromatic, hop-juice notes to an already great IPA.

I could drink this one over and over fresh from the brewery. Complimented a big fish taco served alongside the tap room. Absolutely delicious -- and one of my favorite examples of pristine, brilliant dry-hopping that takes a great beer and makes it sublime.

On-tap at the Avery Tap Room 3/20/09

A: Hazy yellow in color with a frothy head. Solid lacing.

S: Vegetal hops aroma with a marijuana-like aroma.

T: Big hop flavor. Lots of pine and vegetal hop flavors. Nothing but hops, but quite tasty nonetheless.

M: Medium-bodied with light-carbonation. Lingering hop flavor and bitterness.

D: One for the hop heads. There's not much else, but it is what it's supposed to be and is quite tasty.
