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.

3.8 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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange beer with a medium foamy white head that is actually pretty dense. Citrusy nose with grapefruit, orange, peach, and pear. Flavor has a bracing hop bite with some bright fruit notes reminiscent of the nose with the addition of some pine resin and pith, but overall it’s not really that bitter for an IPA. I would have liked a little more prominent malt profile to balance it out a bit. Still, it’s a refreshing, drinkable beer that is certainly worth your time.

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.
