4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Brilliant clarity and a surprisingly light hue. This could fool you into thinking it’s a milder ale. One finger of wispy white head pops away quickly. Huge, fresh, bright hop aroma. Fresh-cut grass, grapefruit peel, alcohol, candied lemon. Brilliant. So many C-hops. There’s no way this is 8.5 percent -- it tastes as clean and crisp and light as a session IPA. Candied lemon qappears again, with grass and lingering apricot. Soft, medium light, whipped-cream body. Mildly carbonated. Fantastic hop flavor and aroma in this one, and it has a much lighter in body than the ABV suggests. Too drinkable for its own good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from growler into a tulip: Pours golden / amber with a slight head. Aroma of resin, citrus, caramel, and a bit of bread. Taste is caramel sweetness up front, a little citrus and resin, and a pretty bitter presence at the end of the sip. Medium body, lots of carbonation, decent double IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty nice DIPA with crazily inflated ratings per usual in this neck of the woods. Aroma is quite nice with juicy citrus, tropical fruits, lightly dank, and slight booze. Taste is good but not quite as juicy as the aroma would make you think. High bitterness is a shock at first but palate adjusted nicely to it. Medium carbonation. All in all a solid double IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour on tap at the brewpub, clear orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice orange peel, floral hops, grapefruit into a bit of pine, slight earthy notes with some caramel. Taste was a mix of orange, grapefruit, nice pine and floral notes into a bit of biscuit, caramel, finishing fairly bitter. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Arizona Wilderness. Clear golden orange with white foam. Super citrusy nose. A lot of grapefruit, pine, and apricot preserves. Sort of sweet and caramel forward. A pretty intense orange zest aroma as well. Flavor is rather sweet for me. It has a lot of grapefruit, lemon, and orange. Sweet apricot and caramel malts.

Growler thanks to Dak! Pours crystal clear orange with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma is hella fruity and juicy, citrus, buttery passionfruit, mango, other tropical goodness. Flavor is light sweet and light bitter. Medium body, a bit creamy in the mouth. Very tasty!

Draft. Unclear medium amber. Large frothy lasting beige head with lots of lace. Strong but pleasant bitterness that doesn’t overstay. Very hoppy. Sweetness enough to balance. Spicy. Resin. Citrus rind. Hooray Hops!
