3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Traded bottle. Nice looking pour with a big, fluffy white head. Fairly big aroma I can smell across the table that reminds me of ripe pineapple. Nice flavor too; slightly sweet and perfumey but that gets covered by the bitterness a little. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden orange colour. Tight cream white head. The nose is softly fruity and a little bit spice. Assertively bitter with a bit less hop flavour than I might have liked otherwise. Decent though. A bit of malt sweetness. A touch of minerally almost medicinal bitterness.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma and color and clarity are amazing. Nice hoppy scent and a beautiful light amber color. A nice hoppy and a bitter taste coats the tounge and a light body as well. A very good IPA. At first there seems to be a little sweetness but it is quickly overcome by the awesome hops. The aftertaste is a great taste of hops. And more hops...amazing. Worth a buy and rebuy

On tap at the brewery. I don’t understand how this beer is a 91 overall. One of the best ipas I’ve ever had. You can smell the hops while the waitress is still carrying it to your table! Has a great floral pine aroma and packed a floral bitter balanced flavor.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from the bottle into a shaker. Nice color, slightly cloudy and great lacing. Aroma is earthy, pine. Flavour is more of a spicey hop, maybe nugget hops. The bitterness is nice. This tastes exactly like the IPA I brewed last year with nugget hops. I think it was good, maybe better with Amarillo and simcoe though.

Draught from Sac brewers showcase. Very nice. Hoppy with malt back. Real balanced APA- what you’d expect from an West Coast American IPA. Well hopped, palate held hops and maltiness rounded out the IPA. Good stuff.
