4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft. Pours a darker golden color, thin tan head. One of the better aromas in my opinion, really enjoyed it - floral, grass, pine, citrus, and touch of berry. Medium sweet flavor. Medium body, average carb, medium bitter hop finish. Best offering from Aviator with this well-round IPA.

Out of a can drank out of a tulip glass. At first sip this beer is smooth then quickly the hops show up bringing up citrus and pine notes with some pineapple. Big bite finish that bring this beer to a fantastic end! Very enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. 8/17/14. Pours a hazy gold-amber with a thin, white head. Aroma is spicy, tropical fruits, caramel, toffee, stewed oranges, mango, some grass, citrus is prominent. Taste is similar; dry tropical fruits, bitter grapefruit rind, pine, juniper, moderate bitterness, hint of caramel; finish is long and bitter, grapefruit rind. Lacking is thin but consistent. Medium-full bodied. Medium-low carbonation. The flavor is fine; the bitterness is very evident as is the alcohol. But the appearance and the aroma are especially engaging. It smells like brewing, which is really cool; it reminds me of every brewery I’ve walked into during brew day. I like that. the color is also very engaging and nice. Over all, more than decent. Enjoyable.

St. Augustine, FL - Broudy’s Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz can. Dark golden-orange pour, slight off-white head. Nice aroma with some floral accents mixed in with the usual spruce offerings. Flavor has some solid citrus bitterness, a touch of maple syrup sweetness, a bit of caramel. Mouthfeel has s bit of a sting to it - but not a major detractor. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
can @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Clear dark amber with a slow-to-recede 1" rocky ivory head, heavy mottled lace. Taste is strong malt, followed by solid citrus hops. The original malt is strong enough to hold its own, leaving no choice but to have malt and hops move nicely together to a lingering finish. Somewhat derivative, but still very well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a can. Decent IPA- hits all the right flavor notes. Nothing outstanding. Pours a friendly orange- thin, dissipating white head with decent legs. Active carbonation. Notes of floral, pine, spice, citrus, bit of vegetal- pretty bright with some resinous notes. Bit bitter in the finish- more so than it needs to be. Would like more balance, but the malt sweetness is there.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Tipples. Pours a pretty, clear amber orange color with a small white head on top. Aroma of strong caramel malts, some bready notes, citrus notes, some mango. Flavor is some stale hop notes, dried grass, light citrus, lots of caramel malts, on the sweet side but still a bit of dankness here. Meh. Body is resinous and a bit juicy with medium carbonation and mild bitterness on the back end. Eh. This isn't terrible but with everything else available in the style that is excellent. out there, I don't know why anyone would choose this one.
