3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz into a pint. Pours a mild orange, head is partial with foam then subsiding into a thin layer of tiny bubbles. an orange glow omits from the brew. Taste is more malty than hoppy, mouthfeel is medium, nothing too fancy here. the hop presence runs into the malt too much and brings forth a muddle colaboration of taste. Dank and skunky is the aroma with cloves, orange, and organic grass, soil, and dirt. 6.5 carries lightly so thats cool, but overall this is lacking a punch that an ipa should bring.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tart nose of grapefruit, nearly perfume like. One finger lasting head, clear copper color. Strong bitter citrus flavor of grapefruit and even limes. Prickly medium body that rules out sessions without being overly heavy. Citrus sensory assault here. The client’s brews are here, can Paper City send some distribution east of Worcester?

Pours deep gold into a shaker. White head with good retention craters and recedes leaving spider lacing. Resin and grapefruit aromas. Sharp resin and caramel upfront turning to grapefruit pith in the lasting finish.
