4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden with a medium white head and good retention. Oily appearance. Aroma is grassy and floral with citrus undertones. Very nice smell. Flavor is grassy hops and alcohol with some light sweetness to offset the bitter. Grapefruit like citrus character with some light malt notes. Good shit.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a orange hue with a nice off white head. Aroma is citrus with orange, mango, lemon, and grapefruit. Sweet maltiness aroma comes through as well. Excellent tasting IPA with a nice balance of sweetness and bitterness. Finishes with a nice grapefruit flavor on the tongue. The palate is smooth with the right amount of carbonation, not crisp but it doesn’t need to be. Somewhat sweet but hoppy IPA. An excellent choice for a nightcap beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours a dark golden copper color with tinges of orange. It produces a nice three finger off white head that dissipates rather quickly into a nice layer covering the beer and running around the edge of the glass. Big aroma on this. An immediate dankness rose up from the glass. I got hints of pine, with citrus, mild grapefruit with a hint of lemon. I also got big tropical fruits, definitely some mango. Maybe a hint of peach and a dash of apricot. There is also some nice malty sweetness coming through that masks the alcohol nicely. Starts off very soft on the palate. Not a ton of carbonation to speak of. A lot more lemon on the taste. Picking up a bit more peach and apricot on the palate as well. Middle of the mouth the bitterness comes back into play, some of that piney grapefruit. Slightly sweet towards the back and it finishes very clean. Not really any trace of the alcohol. The body on this is medium light to medium. It’s a rather crisp beer. Some lacing left on the glass. A nice west coast IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange-amber pour with a two-fingered, frothy white head. Very sticky lace. Awesome hops blast up front with fresh squeezed grapefruit and pine juice. Flavors of lemon pith, ruby red grapefruit, pineapple and pine resin. A good portion of caramel malt for a complimentary backbone. Good body, nice balance with a strong, lingering, bitter finish. This brews most significant feature is its freshness. Not bad at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very well made west coast IPA with a clean finish. This is definitely a floral IPA with more of a citrus aroma than pine cone, similar to a better tasting Bridgeport IPA. However, the palate is a little empty leading a finish that leaves you wanting for something more. This makes for a good sessionable IPA although the ABV is a little high (and the ABV is masked very well!). While not an epic beer, I would definitely recommend this beer for casual drinking or a sample if you haven’t had it before.
