3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can purchased at Aspen Wine and Spirits in Aspen, Colorado. The pour is a hazed orange golden with a small, well formed light tan head. The aroma is citrus pineapple fruit, touch of pine, earth, and a toasted malt. The taste is a nice balance between the toasted malt as well as the bright fresh tropical citrus fruit, the pine and general hop bitterness. Bit of residual sweetness. The palate is medium bodied, soft natural carbonation, and a dry lightly bitter finish. Easy drinking, nice IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can poured a clear orange hue w/ a large beige head. Moderate orange aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a mild bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are tangerine, orange, sugar, and grass. Medium bodied, pleasant mouthfeel, and soft carbonation. This beer is delicious, but awful sweet for an IPA maybe the yeast wasn’t hungry enough.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is light to medium amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit, apricot), with notes of gum, candy, butter, plastic.
Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, syrupy/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
Ugh. Very hard to enjoy, especially in the mouth where it’s very syrupy sweet with very little bitterness to balance (I dunno where the advertised 62 IBUs are, but they can’t compete at all with the massive residual sugars). It’s more like an American Strong, just a mish-mash of hop odors and sugars in the nose with this goopy body. A drain pour.

Can. Pours clear copper with big, off-white head. Good retention and significant lacing. Aroma is strong resinous, citrus, piney hops. Flavor is resinous, citrus hops, with a mildly citrus, bitter finish. Hop profile is pleasant and fruity, mellow. Very soft carbonation, medium body, and juicy, oily texture.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz can. Pours hazy golden orange with some floaties. It has a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet bready malts with some piney, grassy, slightly metallic hops.
The flavor is sweet bready malts with a little tropical fruit and a fairly sweet sugary finish and a little bitterness in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and a bit watery.
Overall, overly sweet and bready. More English IPA than American. Needs more hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour out of 12 oz can, dark red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big caramel, toffee, lots of nice grapefruit, red berry, hints of orange peel, slight lemon, lots of spice as well. Taste is a mix of nice grapefruit juice, orange peel, bitter lemon into some grass, spicy notes, hints of caramel, toffee, finishing bitter, dry. This reminds of of Surly Furious in a mild way, tasty flavor profile.
