3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lovely citrus pine aroma in an golden amber pour. Flavour is similarly alluring with a hop forward balance to the full bodied taste and sustained bitter finish.

Light amber with a thin head. Hops are papaya - I just assume this is good for my stomach - and everything has that smooth sweet thing that is yummy for a pint or two. So it’s a good one for the fruit character, and just how bright it is.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at River Room. Hazy orange gold body, small creamy head. Somewhat gentle hoppy aroma introduces big, bold hop flavor. Malts still shine through the mix, hops add the right amount of bitterness and a dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Faint citrus aroma. Flavors are of bitter tangerine and some nutty toast with maybe some bitter Nutella. Pretty standard.

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.
