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

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a Sam Adams pint glass.

Pours a lovely amber with a one-finger head that quickly dissipates and leaves lacing along the length of the beer.

The aroma is very nice, westy-style. grapefruit, citrus, candied fruit, and a little hint of spice and dankness.

The taste is very nice. Lots of grapefruit with a big initial bitter bite. As my palate adjusts, I also get some candied fruit, lemon zest, some sweet malt below and a hint of spicy hop as well.

Mouthfeel is pretty typical, medium a slightly sticky.

Overall, a very decent IPA. I'd happily drink another.

A: rusty orange. Thin, fluffy head.
S: orange, mango, floral. Small sweet notes.
T: piney, citrusy goodness. Malt is basic, with a little sweetness (barely).
M: medium carbonation. Medium body. Bitter at finish.
O: good IPA. Balanced well, but hop-bomb at the bitter end. Yum

Hazy gold with one finger of white head. Curtain of fine bubble lace.
Smell is pine oil floral grapefruit hops and pale malt. Really bold smell.
Taste is similar to the smell with a bit of sweetness to the malts. Maybe a bit of caramel malts.
Hops are about potent as you want in a standard IPA without losing the individual hop flavors. Mouthfel is medium and carbonation is just enough. This brew has a medium dry bitter finish. This beer is a bit hard to find in my area and I made a special trip to Kennewick, Wa. to get it. Not sure it is worth the $10 per six pack but I am glad to have tried it.
