3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very aromatic and floral IPA. Bitter, but not west coast style, and not as fruity as east coast. Earthy and floral flavors as well. Good brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich copper and bronze coloured body with a nice three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright grassy and piney hops with a nice malt scent as well, coupled with some nuts and earthiness, but also a touch of sugars. Medium-bodied; Super nice fresh hop flavour with pine and resin the strongest along with a good malt backbone and some subtle caramel sweetness, but this is all about the fresh hops that show very well. Aftertaste is rich and very hoppy with a good deal of bitterness and citrus flavours on the finish with a great balance of malt as well. Overall, a very nice IPA that is distinctly NOT West-Coast styled, and it shows very well - definitely worth trying and/or packing up in a suitcase to bring home! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Chicago (Streeterville), Illinois on 11-May-2016 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 14-June-2016.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber copper color. Aroma and flavor of grapefruit hops. The profile is very similar to GI Honkers but turned up a notch. Flavor grows on you but not the bitterness. Not too shabby.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. A murky amber brown beer that has a full one finger layer of off white foam. Nice lacing. A nice fruity aroma. Citrus and tropical. Complex fruit is tasted early. Moderate bitterness. Some tartness in that bitterness. There is some spiciness that is like rye-lite. It is just a little bit juicy. Decent stuff.
