On tap at Apex in Portland, split with Matts_Property, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of floral, soapy and citrusy hops, with some light fruit. Flavour is very floral and citrus heavy, kind of soapy, with barely enough caramel malt to balance. Finishes floral and soapy. Very well-made.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at tribes; pour is murky copper with a fine bubbled off white head in this tulip. Sticky lacing is present; the nose is apricot, piney hops, caramel malts really. The flavor profile has similar notes of apricot, grapefruit, piney hops, caramel; its sticky, fairly sweet, average carbonation. A nice attempt.

On tap at Haymarket. Pours burnt orange with off-white head. Aromas of piney hops and sweet malt, some citrus hops in there as well. Flavors of pine, tons of bitter hops and sweet malt. Not a very drinkable IIPA with this much sweet malt. Was really looking forward to this but oh well.
