4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Finally in Maryland!! Been waiting a long time for this one.
22oz bomber into a craft glass. The pour is a very clear, light golden color. Aroma makes my mouth water. Peach blasts the nose right away. I get citrus and tropical notes as well. Mouth is also blasted with peach right off the line. Solid hop bitterness throughout. Nice resin character and slight dryness in the finish. Superb IPA! Now I must find a way to try AleSmith’s.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 8/22/2016. Pours slightly hazy medium orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, peach, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, peach, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, peach, pineapple, mango, lemon/orange rind, pine, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and lightly creamy/grainy balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Minimal warming alcohol for 7%. Overall this is an incredible IPA. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink despite very resinous bitterness. A highly enjoyable offering.

Bottle. Pours clear, orange in colour with medium sized head. Aroma with hint of pine and citrus, nice malty caramel touch. In taste citrusy, bitter, dry with hint of malty biscuits. Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry, smooth with very bitter finish. Average aroma (si? to age), but still tasted fantastic. Very refreshing and easy drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Deep amber with orange tinge. Lemon, grapefruit, stone and tropical fruits aromas balanced beautifully with understated caramel malt. Relatively light bodied and fresh, but packs an alcoholic punch that you don't detect on the palate. Mid level of bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Trop vieille. Mais potentiellement bonne. Nez franchement caramel (signe de non fraîcheur) et fond orangé.
Bouche du même acabit avec un petit côté un peu floral et résineux.
