3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was poured into a nonic pint.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange golden color with a slim white head that immediately dissipated leaving barely any lacing.
The smell had a decent amount of sweet blueberries intertwining with the bitter citrus hops. A light sweet pine enters and hangs nicely to balance it all out.
The taste was moderately bitter with a decent sweet blueberry to accompany the flavor. It has a decent malt base. There’s a semi-dry sweet blueberry aftertaste leading to just a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed appropriately styled and came across as an EIPA.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good EIPA that I could have again.

I expected an IPA, but I read the label. It is a bit off from the dry and fruity/piney we have at the higher percentiles. Does not mean it is a bad beer. I liked it although I would say it is more like a stronger pale ale. A little slick/buttery though. However, the "India" label is associated with particular flavors, unfortunately.

12 oz. bottle. It pours a clear deep golden color with an off white head. The aroma has lots of strawberries, caramel and light floral notes. A little rotting fruit. The flavor is the same with strong, aspirin like bitterness. More caramel and rotting fruit. No thank you.

Bottle at home while visiting Jacksonville. Pours amber with a white head. Light caramel, light b.o., light lemon aroma.Medium body, medium carbonation. Odd, stale flavours - it’s astringent, chemically, metally with citrus. Very unpleasant bitter, harsh aftertaste. Bad.

Didn’t catch all the flavors listed but i know i did enjoy the pear lement to the beer which balanced the hops out. This was a nice drinker.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle poured to a pint. Pours light Amber, with overly frothy white head. Aroma is floral, light citrus with slightly sweet, biscuity malts. Taste is more malty than hoppy, hops come across last with honey and floral notes. Light body, low carbonation. Not a typical IPA profile, not my favorite hops featured here. Pass.
