look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

When poured, this beer had a medium sized white frothy and creamy head with fine-medium sized bubbles that was mostly lasting. The body was cloudy and uncarbonated with a golden hue. The nose was hoppy, sweet, citrusy and fruity with a bitter and hoppy flavor. The mouthfeel was a bit tingly, smooth and dry and it was medium bodied. This beer had excellent lacing.

Notes 9/7/08
Pours a hazy cloudy orange with a creamy offwhite head that laces well. Aroma is beautiful very floral and hoppy ,some notes of grass and pine. The flavor is much of the same with some malt background, citrus, hops and a hint of spice. This is amazingly smooth and drinkable for an IPA. It finishes quite crisp and delicious on the palate. It manages to not get you with that harsh bitterness. This is a great beer Ultra Drinkable

12oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Pours a hazy yellow/orange with a big white head that fades to a small layer and leaves tons of sticky lacing.

S: The nose is huge with tropical fruits, grapefruit, hops, and a malt sweetness in the back.

T: Tropical fruits and a grapefruit style bitterness on first sip. Big fruity hoppy bitterness and a nice sweetness on the finish. Very balanced and begs for another sip. Pretty refreshing and one of the best IPAs I've ever had.

M: The feel is on par with the style, crisp yet creamy.

D: I would buy this all the time if it was available in TX. Excellent example of an American IPA and very tasty.

Thanks to hayesez for hooking me up with this!

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

Color is a clear amber, pours two fingers of head that leaved a thick ring of lacing.
Aroma is Fruity with pine and biscuity malt in there too.
Taste- Mild tropical and light fruit, followed by citrus peel with malty, sweet, cakey flavors providing balance.
Feel- Perfect Medium body, relatively high carbonation, pleasantly creamy but still light in the finish.
Overall; a spectacular go too beer.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

Light orange/amber in color, with a thin white head. Serious carbonation is evident in the glass.

Aroma is big on citrus. The hops have a big grapefruit and orange punch right up front. Sweet malt and caramel attempt to make their way through and almost succeed.

The hops hit you hard again upon tasting. Citrus and floral notes that give way to such a pleasantly bitter finish. All the while a mingling of sweet maltiness with floral hoppiness just light up your senses with pleasure.

This American IPA is medium bodied and nicely carbonated. Good body and quite hearty. Drinkable to be certain, but it will definitely creep up on you.

Wow, wow, wow. This is an outstanding brew from a great brewery. Little malt on the front, great, multi-hops on the back end and lots of grapefruit flavor. You can mall through like a 6 pack in no time. Alcohol balance is super. The best part of this bronski is the smell, classic microbrew smell. The smell makes the brew plus the taste is outstanding!! Highly recommend this beer!
