3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly hazed gold with a white head. Pine resin, BO / must, cheese rind, pepper / spice and such in the nose. Simcoe comes to mind given the mild shallot and garlic notes. Musty BO odors may be from yeast rather than hops. Lightly sweet, highly bitter, medium acid. Malt is soft, carbonation fine giving it a creamy texture. Typical resinous American IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pouring at TAPNY. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Big citrus and grapefruit dripping on the nose. Lots of sweet hops, light malt and candied citrus. Super big citrus flavors. Long bitter finish full of pithy grapefruit and quinine. Amazing stuff. Beer of the fest probably.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
in short: a splendid blond ipa bursting with grapefruits and tropical fruits. as tasty as it is refreshing. great beer.
how: tap at tap-ny 2012, multiple samples
The look: almost clear blond body topped by a small white head
In long: nose is intensely grapefruity with also plenty of tropical fruits. taste has a solid pale bready malt backbone that provides body but doesn’t contribute much to the overall flavor. this one is all about the fresh and bright hops, grapefruits, pineaples, mangos, others. very tasty but the bitterness is never aggressive, nothing resinous, this one is all about refreshing bright freshness. my beer of the day at tap-ny 2012. the only thing i didn’t like about this beer is its name, i wrote my entire rating in lowercase because i hate capitalism.

MaxxDaddy garbage shared at RBWG, Le Grande Tastinge. Pours a clear, bright gold color without much head. Notes of citrus and tropical fruits, sweet and cereal malts, herbs, and florals. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bright, clean mouthfeel. Nice, easy-drinking IPA that seems like less than 7.3%.
