3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler… Pours clear and golden with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Great retention. The aroma is a fruity, earthy, spicy swirl of peach, pineapple, light pine sap and mild white pepper. Light to medium-bodied with zippy carbonation. The flavor is all about the hops – medium bitter, resiny, citrusy, rindy hops. Crisp, lengthy, bitter finish. This more an IPA than an American pale ale. Growler courtesy of biggsbowler!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at 7venth Sun. Low haze straw pour with webby, white lace. Nose is super rich Amarillo hops, buttery toffee, caramel, fresh and rich dichotomy. Taste is nutty, rich, butterscotch, loads of the elusive "quenching" malty character found in Alesmith IPA, original batch Ballast Point Sculpin, a few others. Oily, rich palate. No astringency, no tannins, no heavy sugar body, no aggressive bitterness. A masterpiece IPA. Really at this abv, it should be moved to IPA from APA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the tap room. Hazy pale orange color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes gradually to a film. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops, citrus and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of resiny hops, grapefruit and toasted malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a citric hop aftertaste. Above average overall.
