3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A crystal clear, vibrant Amber body is crowned by a slowly fading inch of creamy tight white head, which settles to a lasting cap, creating some rounded peninsulas and dots of lace
Bright ruby red grapefruit leads the way with medium intensity, wrapped in various nuances of other citrus fruit, mild floral notes add character and lead to green melon and light piney darkness, a subtle doughy sweetness blends seemlessly on an exceptionally smooth, nicely cohesive medium-light body offering a touch of additional bitterness on the finish... fairly short lived residuals of the previously mentioned components

Jaune pâle avec une belle robe blanche. L’arôme a plein de pamplemousse eu un peu du pin. En bouche il y a un peu d’agrumes et pin et une bonne amertume. Très bien fait.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Bright clear medium amber, fluffy 2" white head, streaks of lace. Aroma of strong citrus. Taste is caramel that bursts on a lightly carbonated swallow into strong citrus hops. A bit of malt lingers in the background through a long finish. A pretty solid IPA - balanced and complex.

Great IPA. Hoppy with a hint of a fruity balance. Crisp finish that leaves you wanting more.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear, orange colour with big, stable head. Nice lacing too. After opening the bottle, it feels big punch of citrus (grapefruit!), exotic fruits (mango, maybe even passion fruit), some floral note and malty base on background. Taste is light to medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter, light dry. Finish is very long, biiter, but not harsh or tart. Soft carbonation. Medium to full body. Fantastic, very drinkable, no doubt one of the best IPA I’ve ever tried.
