4.32/5  rDev +22.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Standard from the bottle to the pint glass.

Appearance: Blond with a think off white head

Aroma: Malty with sweet hop bouquet. Not much in the way of citrus or grassy notes.

Flavor: Bitterness exists to some extent all the way through. Piney middle leads into the hop-dominated finish, which lingers for seconds after swallowing. Not the crispness one might expect from an IPA but delicious bitterness exemplifies the use of NW hop varieties.

Reviewed on 5-28-10
Reviewed cold from a bottle to a glass

A - Golden color, 1 finger of foam with a decent lacing ring, good amount of carbonation present

S - Sweet malts, orange peel, caramel

T - Medium bodied, malt flavored mixed with a lighter hop back bone

M/D - Interesting taste, malt with a sweet citrus taste but mixed caramel. Not sure if I would get this one again but it was worth trying and recommend

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

A - Pours a dark hazy gold with a frothy white head. There is a good amount of lacing on the glass.

S- Bog aromas of grapefruit, pines and some other nice sharp citrusy notes. I'm also getting some faint malt aromas.

T- The taste is very balanced ! Great clean earthy flavors with a decent hop bite. Great example of an IPA. Easy drinking as well.

M- Light/medium body with a clean refreshing finish. Could knock back a couple of these.

O- Scores top 5 on my personal favorite IPA's. Way to go Full Sail!

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

A: FS IPA has a beautiful pale amber body, great head retention, and outstanding lacing. The bottom on my Perfect Pint is a storm of pinhead bubbles, forming swirling torrents of bubbles. Clarity is good, with only a touch of haze.

S: The lively bouquet is marked by juniper, grapefruit, and rosemary.

T: Dry, with a nice bread-like flavor that is dominated by Pacific Northwest hops. Light, dry, and refreshing.

M: Light, heavily effervescent, and clean on the finish.

D: A highly sessionable IPA in a world dominated by boozy hop-bombs. It's nice to see people sticking to the classics in an era where it's taboo to do so.
