3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Short rating (’cause I’m @ work right now...) Pour from a growler. Aroma dripping with resin and fruit rind. Light crusty malt. Peaches and some pears. Slightly floral with some grass and herbs as well. Crystal clear golden pour with a resilient fluffy white head. Minimal lacing. Flavor is quite dry. I was expecting quite a bit more based on the aroma. Lost of dry, crusty and bready malt. Slightly spicy and resinous hops. Herbal and crackery. Medium bodied. Average carbonation with a bone dry finish. Decent. Thanks Randall!

On cask at Pizza Paradiso in Alexandria it is a clear gold color with a slight head . The aroma is citrus and the taste is a slight tinny flavor that evolves into a taste of bitter orange.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I said shazam, this is one of the most unique IPAs I’ve ever had. Pours a cloudy orange hue with a thin white head. The aroma wafts of a true citrusy IPA, the taste is deliciously complex, blending that simcoe and amarillo hop with pure intentions. Enjoy.

32oz growler from Dominion W&B, also a draft goblet at Spacebar. Gold with moderate white head. This is a very good IPA, with a great balance of pine,floral, and citrus hop aromas and flavor. No WC IPA slap in the face, just great taste. Very drinkable.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft pour pint at Special Brews. Pours a clear bright golden color with a fizzy head. I was a little surprised to see how highly rated the IPA’s from these guys are, but after trying them, I can see why. This one has an explosion of sweet juicy grapefruit aroma. Very nice hoppy citrus flavor, with a juicy fruit finish. Damn, this stuff is good. Loved it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an amber color with a thick foam head that dissipates and laces my glass. The aroma is of pine, floral hops, citrus, grassy, and had a good malt presence. The flavor is of booze, crisp semi sweet malts, it has a medium bitterness that lingers, and some earthy herbal flavor too. Overall a good IPA, glad to have enjoyed it.
