3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Beer Temple, 5 oz, with Kermis. Hazy golden color. Uneven, a bit rocky white head, with some lacing. Aroma’s: resinous, citrus, caramel. Retronasal there’s citrus, caramel, some resin. Flavor is moderate sweet-moderate bitter. Medium bodied. Rather bitter finish. Again I had the impression this was not very fresh...

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour orange with a one finger white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, grass, bready malts, tropical fruits, and biscuit malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, pretty hopyy, classic west coast style IPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A special one. Overflowing with west coast hops - grapefruit, orange, tangerine and pine. Quite a punch in the nose. Medium sweetness and weight from the malt. All a bit raw and unsubtle like a farmhouse IPA - a good thing.

Cloudy amber, offwhite froth. Resin and caramel aroma, hints of rubber. Mouthfeel is slick and oily. Fruity, piney flavour. Solid caramely backing, passionfruit. Has a nice DIPAish roughness to it. Nice.

The Sampler, Brooklyn can: pours orange with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit, pineapple, and pine without the apple. Nice amount of tropical fruit in the taste while maintaining a hefty dosage of hop bitterness. Pretty good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at St Augustine’s, pours a close pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out fresh piney hops upfront, with some sticky hop resins and biscuity malt. Flavour is super fresh, with lovely piney hops dominating the palate, followed by some sticky hop resins and just enough biscuity malt. Nothing extraordinary but it’s an excellent by the books west coast piney IPA that is underrated.
