3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
There are worse ways to pass the time, whilst being ’snowed in’ in SE QLD, than sucking this beer down. A classic of the US genre; full flavoured, resin hops with some thickness, dark spicey fruits. Seems a bit more bold than its 7% suggests. Cracking value in Australia at about $5 and competes very well with the SN Torpedo.

Bottle pour. Slightly hazy copper orange with foamy white head. Hoppy aroma with hints of floral and light citrus. Crisp silky palate. Hoppy with pine.

Bottle from Homer321, thanks again! Slightly hazy burnt orange pour with an off white head. Big resinous hops on the nose. Flavor is an awesome combo of citrus and floral hops. Nice malt balance as well. Great brew.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear and carbonated rust orange. Aroma is a mix of floral, citrus hops, and pine. A big hop bomb to start with citrus, pine, fruit, and some malts to follow. A strong bitter fruity hop aftertaste that is slightly sour.

On tap at Mikkeller & Friends, july 25th 2014. Clear orange body, foamy white head. Aroma is hoppy, pine and citrus fruits, light sweet malt taste with a late dry fruity hop hop finish. Excellent balanced yet hoppy IPA

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark amber, slight haze, sparkling, dense foamy off-white head. Aroma is soft lemon, digestive biscuit, something vaguely floral - maybe pollen. Body is medium, mid-carbonation, foamy in the mouth. Taste is lemon, grapefruit, pine, resin, background toffee Centennial hop sweetness. Overall impression is minty. Finishes fairly bitter.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lots of pine and resin with a backdrop of fruit - apricot, peach. Pours a clearish gold with a thick foamy off white head that lasts for days. Fairly light mouthfeel. Piney. Earthy. A little bit of bitter edge but with a lingering softness in the finish. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle picked up at GBBF 2014. Pours a slightly dark orange amber with a white head. Light caramel, slightly floral/perfume grass aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Good, big solid bitterness on this... Nice and dry with tangerine, a little mango, pine and dry woody resin. Tasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
8th July 2014: Orange County, on my daughters balcony. The bottle poured out a golden/orange/amber brew with a full but thin beige head. Hops lead the way with citrus notes filling both your nose and taste buds. For me this was too much on the lemon side, not my scene really. Nothing wrong with this, just not my cup of beer. medium bodied and refreshing enough I suppose. Scored objectively.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear golden with a thick white head. Aroma is grapefruit hops with just a hint of pine. Flavor is grapefruit again with a bit of dry pine hops in the finish. Very drinkable, and quite good with spicy food. Brings out the natural fruitiness. Could use a touch more malt to round out the body, it’s just a bit thin.
