3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an amber color, on the nose I smell citrus and a mixed fruit scent, taste is bitter hops at the mouth, then caramel at the throat. An OK IPA too much caramel flavor and not bitter enough for me.

4.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Weak aroma. Weak up front, but the bitter hoppy aftertaste delivers in spades. Good citrusy flavor with a fantastically bitter finish that lingers and lingers leaving you wanting more.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Edgewood Wine-Spirits / Edgewood KY --- Clear dark amber color, 1/2" tan head that sticks around, low waves of lace. Taste is malt, but it is more about pine hops. Really thirst-quenching and palate cleansing brew, but a little strong for general drinking.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a copper-amber with a one finger off white head with decent lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, caramel, sweet malts, herbal hops, grassy hops, musty wood, and some light tropical fruits. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a slighty dry, semi-moderately bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice, well balanced ipa that is borderline East Coast style.
