3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from tap to glass. Golden hue with huge creamy white head that lingered. Aroma is grapefruit, tangerine, papaya, pine. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet with a great hop bitterness that is very well integrated. Overall this is a really enjoyable, fruit-forward IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Apex. The question we must ask is: how far overboard is it?
A: Bright orange with a white head.
N: Oranges and pineapple, pine and earth. A touch of glue. Mary Jane and biscuit. Some piercing hop flavors. Guava.
T: Sweet and bitter, with the latter overcoming the first.
M: Resinous, heavier body.
O: Is it way overboard? Probably not. It’s certainly no Tankslapper. It’s still a subtler, fruitier beer, if you want that kind of IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Apex. Pour is clear orange with a big white head and great lacing. Orange peel, caramelly, grapefruit, grassy, bready, doughy, and piney aroma. Taste is somewhat husky, astringent hoppy, oranges, stale bready, and grassy with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Doesn’t live up to the aroma.

Poured at bittercreek. Poured a orange/copper color very little head with nice lacing. Nose is big hops and somewhat grassy. This is a hop bomb but with nice malty balance. Glad I had this.

On tap at Bittercreek... Polished orange brew... Sudsy white head.. Tropical fruit hoppiness... Some pithy citrus... Very balanced and super drinkable... Gets a little too malty for my palate with warmth... Enjoy this one colder.

Had on draft at the brewpub. This is a damn fine IPA. Big American hop profile, citrus, grapefruit, citrus rind, pine. The malts are soft and in the background, slight caramel notes.
