3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is fantastic! Extremely fruity, citrusy, tropical fruit goodness. Very unique. Flavor is a bit off though, some malty sweetness, not much hop character, and a bit astringent. Light and very drinkable, but with a strange astringent aftertaste. Wish the aroma would come through a bit more in the taste, but overall, a solid pale ale.

Nice and refreshing, not over powering like some ipa’s. Almost a session ipa. At only 6 % it doesn’t knock you over.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It poured a cloudy amber color with a white head. The aroma was almost pungent, with notes of resiny pine, grapefruit and a hint of orange. The taste was of a fair malt content, with moderate hop bitterness that lingered, some astringency and a dry finish. It was medium bodied, with suitable carbonation. A decent IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle two days before drinking. Pours hazy copper with a sudsy white head. The aroma is very dank and has lots of tropical fruit (mango, pineapple, papaya) hoppy notes. There is also some caramel malt sweetness giving it nice balance. Medium body that has a touch of roughness and very gentle carbonation. The flavor has dry grapefruit rind, pine and resiny bitterness. The malt presence is very crackery and woody. The finish is very resiny, bitter and harsh. Oddly enough I think this is almost a bit too dry and hoppy for me to want to have very often. It’s very good as hop juice though.
