3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle, pours hazy golden orange. Nice aroma of grapefruits, citrus, and piney hops. Flavour is less appealing, with a syrupy body of cloyingly sweet caramel which has overtaken the hop profile. Not bad, though disappointing for the style.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
As Pilot Series Imp IPA from Nugget Market in West Sacramento, CA. Pours almost clear copper with a 1 finger creamy beige head. Mixed aroma of floral, citrus and resin hop. Med body with creamy carb. Flavor is fresh fruit and floral over some mildly roasted malt. Now I remember why fresh IPA is good. This is lush hop. Floral, nearly perfumey. Maybe a little resin on the side. Yummy stuff.
