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

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle on Aug 23, 2012.

A: Pours a clear golden amber with a 1 finger dense white head. Just a little bit of visible carbonation. Pretty much lacing down the entire glass.

S: Hoppy aroma, citrus and pine. Certainly a malt backing on this too, really rounds it out. Almost a spiciness from the hop.

T: Starts with a bitter piney hop taste that is quickly balanced by some good sweet malts. Lingers with a smooth roasted blend of malt and a fresh piney hop. Impressive.

M: Medium body with low carbonation. Has a nice nectary mouthfeel without being too sticky. Real easy drinking

Overall a beer I wasnt expecting to be so good. Has the mouthfeel of an amazing IPA with the well balanced taste of a smooth drinkable IPA. Isnt a hopbomb but instead something you could drink all night.

A- Beautiful hazy orange/amber color. One finger head which dissipates quickly. Minor lacing but there.

S- Citrus, pine resin, some grapefruit notes, and other tropical fruit. Great smelling beer.

T- Upfront you get that nice citrus and piney bitterness, in the middle I pull more tropical fruits. The beer at the end balances itself beautifully with the malts.

M-It's a medium mouthfeel, with little carbonation.

O- This is an excellent IPA, throughly enjoyed. It has everything I want in an IPA, the beautiful color, engaging smell, and the balance that puts this in the upper echelon of IPA's in my opinion. Not the best but absolutely a goto if you want a great crafted IPA. Cheers!

2 12 oz bottles, one of which was well past best by date bur still rather good.

A: cloudy golden-amber color with a modest size but somewhat durable bone head.

Both caramel malt and hops. Citrus, herbal and earthy notes. Unfortunate slight sour note in the nose does not re-appear in tasting. The flavor is more fruity and leaves a lingering grapefruit aftertaste that relatively low in bitterness.

O: clearly a good IPA. But even the (presumably but undated) fresh bottle did not live up to the many rave reviews.

Got a single as part of my mix six at World Market in Round Rock.

Light honey look on this one...a decent 2 inch head that left a boatload of sticky lacing. Very attractive.

Getting some musty, biscuity sweet malt and a nice scent of earthy hops...fresh cut flowers, maybe a bit o honey as well. Just a really clean scent. Smells wonderful.

Initial bitter hop smack to the pallate, followed quickly by sweet bready malt., then a bit more grassy hops on the backend. A very intricate taste. Well crafted. This one seems heavier than it actually is, but at just above 7 abv it's quite drinkable. A very sticky, sweet, slick mouthfeel...but I like it. Fairly dry, makes me want to take another sip.

I'm not sure why I have not tried this one before. I'll most certainly pick up a sixer in the future. A very good beer from a fantastic brewery.

Poured into a Stella chalice, bottled 10/12/12, two weeks old.

A: Golden, amber orange color. Nice thick egg shell head, good lace and retains well.

S: Fresh citrus, orange juice, a bit sour. Light pine, some caramel sweetness. The sourness is a bit offputting however, its almost like sour milk?

T: A little bit better on the taste. Big bitter hop bite, lots of pine and citrus, big time dry grapefruit peel. Nice caramel malt bill to balance, dry finish, but getting some offputting sour flavors.

M: Medium, smooth carbonation, hop oils coat the mouth.

O: Well, a bit let down by this one. It was pretty solid but the sour aroma was a big turn off. Tasted decent, not sure if I got an infected bottle? Either way, not a repeat purchase for me, way better IPA's out there.
