4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
If you prefer citrus hops over pine as I do, this beer will smell great to you. Grapefruit, tangerine, passion fruit, and just about every other type of citrus are presented in the aroma. Looks great; golden with a white head that leaves a medium amount of lacing on the glass. Tastes of citrus hops with some pine that was not in the aroma. Could be a little stronger, but then again, I lean towards DIPA’s. Good malt backbone, solid all around IPA. I may like it better than 4 Hands War Hammer; another great IPA that you should try.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mosaic has become one of my favorite hops and this beer is an example of exactly why. It is a pretty glowing orange color w/ a fine and long lasting head that leaves behind lacing in rings. Its nose is bright, vibrant and complex courtesy of what I assume must be just a ton of those fine mosaic hops. There is a bit of pine underpinning a ton of pineapple and lemon zest. The hop character implies a bit of sweetness but while there might be a touch of caramel this is really a dry and drinkable beer. It finishes on the mild side w/ crisp, firm bitterness and a lingering piny hop note. This is a great IPA. I really can’t say enough good things about it.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the Craft Beer Store - the new place in Libertyville, walking distance from the Firkin. Pours golden orange with a white head, nice streaky lacing Aroma is heavy citra - citrus, fresh tropical fruit and pine. Taste is fresh tropical fruit, citrus and pine - juicy - with a surprisingly solid malt backbone. Perhaps a bit thin, or at least lighter than it seemed it would be. Crisp and clean, with some stickiness. Finishes more bitter than sweet, but with the fruity sweetness fighting for balance. Very hop forward. Similar to my Sculpin memories ... 15.8 This is very nice!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
As a hop-head, I like the idea of an IPA in a can, which is what this is. It pours pretty, a golden, near bronze body with some beading and a sustained head. The aroma is hops, various zests, tangerine, and just a touch of cat box. In the flavor, the malt comes across as grainy with a touch of unsalted saltines. The hops take over with tangerine, zests, and a spot of yellow grapefruit. The bitterness is sturdy and sustained into the dry finish. Pretty nice canful.

Now being called Resurrected due to a legal beef with some brewpub in Connecticut. Maybe an alias should be setup? Keg @ 4 Hands. Deep gold with a small head. Citrus bomb. Loads of lemon, pineapple, tropical fruits. Taste is similar. Bright citrus, lemon rubbed herbs. Dry bitter finish. Good.
