3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle from jarspag. Aroma: Light caramel maltiness up front; Pine, floral, and citrus hoppiness. Appearance: Light amber in color and hazy. Off-white head was full and foamy with great retention. Good lacing. Flavor: Slightly sweet caramel maltiness with a touch of toasted nuts and bread. Hops kick in nicely with notes of pine, grapefruit, pineapple, floral, and light grass. Nice bitterness that builds but never overwhelms. Dry finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: A nice ’west coast’ IPA. Plenty of hop flavor and aroma.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice light golden color with a small head. Smells very nice with a hoppy and sweet citrusy smell. Taste hoppy and good but a bitter aftertaste that I wasn’t too fond of. Still good though, but just an average IPA, which is still good.

Thanks to fordest for this nice IPA.
Slight hazed amber pour but mostly transluscent still, with a big long lasting white head. Nicely fresh hopped smell with good sweetness coming through in the way of sweet fruity pine. Taste is piney bitterness, some sweetness behind that, with a somewhat astringent soap finish. Above average hoppiness I’d say, and a good overall IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle from Bevmo. Pours a translucent copper color with a two finger off white head that lingers a good long time. Aroma was strong with citrus, pine and biter walnuts. Flavor is hops forward, this is a hops bomb. In addition to the strong biter hops there is plenty of grapefruit, oranges, lemons, and pine oil. Mouthfeel is full and satisfying. Finish is long with more grapefruit and a dry clean finale. Overall is is a superb IPA, will drink again. Recommended for all fans of biter beers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Smallish-medium head, slightly lumpy, leaving behind some rings and splotches of lace. Body is sparkling, deep-honey, and a touch hazy. It looks about like fizzy ice-tea with a head on top. The aroma betrays some serious dry-hopping: peachy, fruity, hops and LOTS of ’em, along with some honey to give a sweet hop wallop aroma. Smells yummy. Body is fullish (!) with lots of rich, foamy carbonation and a balanced finish: not too dry, not too wet. As it sits, it gets pretty wet and flat. =[ Flavor is definitely hoppy: pine, grapefruit rind, peach, general fruitiness, some astringent alcohol hanging out with the pine//grapefruit and all of this starts with a touch of honey; it finishes with a mouth full of hops. It’s tasty. Gets a bit astringent as it warms up. Pretty balanced.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle Pours a clear medium orange amber with a large thick creamy off white head. Lots of lacing. Big bitter piney aroma and very strong pine bitter flavort. Soapy and papery and put me off a bit. Huge dry bitter flavor and a full pallate with plenty of carbonation. Dry cardboardy trailer. Thanks BuckeyeBoy for sharing this trade.
