4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma in this beer makes me want to drink through my nose, amazing rye and citrus hop going on, there is some vinous character too, Nelson sauvin may be the most up and coming hop. I forgot abiut appearance, pale orange with a miniscule white head. Flavor has some rye, vinous white wine, citrus, just enough bitterness to balance the slightly sweet malt body. Finish has some rye bite then just hangs out on my palate being awesome. I love this beer almost as much as I love the neighbor bringing fresh baked cookies over to my wife and I (but telling us beardface may have none). yum to both.

Bottle from richiesd. Light copper pour with a light tan head that fades to a nice film and semi-thick ring around the edge of the glass. Fresh floral hops, some mandarin orange, nectarine, apricot, well balanced malt presence with some biscuit and caramel. Moderate carbonation and strong body, creamy mouthfeel with a nice bitterness that grows but doesn’t overwhelm, leaves a nice citrus and semi-resin taste on the palate. Really liked this.

Wish list cross off at Toronado SD did NOT disappoint. Stood toe to toe (at least) with Blind Pig and lives to tell the tale. Huge dank tropical fruity hops in the nose and flavor. Light spice.Just loved every sip. Nothing else I can say... 4/13 Fresh bottle practically exploding with a wonderful vibrant fruity aroma and flavor without high abv while maintaining balance. One the best IPAs I’ve ever had. Aroma REALLY close to a 10."
