12. oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Very little head that quickly dissipated but the carbonation was constant and light. Gave off a very hoppy aroma, with good citrus notes. Pleasant amber color and appealing look. Very good flavor on the front end of the sip, and gets a little stronger as it sits. Good, strong IPA. Definitely one of the better ones out there.

A clean orange\amber colered beer with asmall off white head theat leaves a little lace. A very sharp hop aroma with a hint of grapfruit. The taste is at once sweet grapfruit and a strong hop prescence. The two do battle for your taste buds. With no clear winner until after you have swallowed. That is when the hops bitterness hangs on to the back of your tongue.

Poured a clear amber body with a one finger foamy white head and light carbonation bubbling up. Overall impression of appearance is of an IPA, true to form. Scents of tropical fruit, grapefruit zest, tangerine flesh, medium-light vegetal hops and some light earthy dank aromas and pale malt sweetness. Overall impression of aroma is of a fairly typical West Coast IPA, not bad, not the most exciting aroma, but a solid take on the style. Flavor begins moderately bitter with notes of earthy, dank, vegetal hops, tangerine flesh, light amounts of grapefruit and a lightly sweet pale malt backbone. Middle continues with vegetal and dank hops dominating and a slight flavor of preserved orange peel and some moderate citrus peel. Finish is moderately bitter with notes of vegetal hops with an onion-like quality, bitter hops and some light floral hop flavors and a pale malt backbone. Aftertaste is biscuity malt, a light hop bitterness and some citrus peel. Overall impression of flavor is of a nice dank IPA. It has more earthy and vegetal flavors than bright ones, with a solid malt backbone. Not bad. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a resinous, sticky feel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a good IPA, nothing off. Overall this is a fairly good standard IPA. It has a nice vegetal, earthy quality with just enough bright fruit and malt to balance. A good IPA.

A: Cloudy orangey with a small head that dissipates. leaves a bit of lace.

S: Aroma of citrus, orange, lemon. hoppy!

T: hoppy with citrus, lemon, orange. Bitterness is definately there, but not overpowering and it is a lemony bitterness.

M: Very smooth and silky with a nice finish. Not overpowering like some IPA's.

D: Definately refreshing and drinkable. Would have another one of these in a heartbeat! It's got the Mojo.

This IPA has a clear golden body, with an off-white head that trails some nice lace. There is a big time floral hop scent to this brew. Light sweet malts, mostly overriden by massive hops. Good bitter/floral mixture. An acidic twang. Medium mouth. This beer is of course all about da hops.

12oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.

pours a light orange/copper tone with about an inch and a half of white/off-white head; moderate retention and lacing.

aroma offers notably pine and citrusy (on the latter count, primarily grapefruit). there's a malty presence as well. taste mosty follows the nose, perhaps a floral note or two... hops are nicely balanced by the malt. a tasty, mid-range IPA - nothing spectacular but enjoyable. mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with average cabronation. i would see nothing wrong with having a couple at a sitting... that is, of course, assuming i was out of better options.

Well slam me with grapefruit!!! This medium golden offering presents itself with a gorgeous head that dissipates into outstanding lacing leaving a surface chunky remainder. The smell attacks your nostrils with a citrus hoppy presence, with yeasty undertones. Taste is pure hops, but as a hophead..I am more than happy...the tartness and biterness remain throughout, but finish with a great tart aftertaste that lingers on the back palate quite nicely. Very drinkable...I would definitely have another. And I thought only Magic Hat had the carzy names and labels. Hopheads should try this one.

A= deep golden yellow, fair head, plenty of lacing.

S= immediate grapefruit but pleasant in that regard, nice sweet malts, florals, citrus notes and hints of nectarine.

T= nice grapefruit and then a sort of delayed hops bitters, not overdone; thick malts, hints of citrus and fruit, slight chewy-ness.

M= mildly bitter, slightly sweet and malty, very pleasant.

D= a definite must for anyone who appreciates great and flavorful IPA. Some similarities to Troeg's Hop Back in flavor. Session all over it.
