3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Hoboken Vine, 5/24/16
Aroma: The nose is bready, with spice, pine hops, and some rye as well, didnít get much citrus here
Appearance: Murky mostly orange color with a thick, creamy off-white head and coating lace
Flavor: Leans stronger toward the bread / spice up-front, with hop bitterness in the mid-through-close
Palate: Medium-full bodied, a little sticky, a little creamy, and with a strong, heavy dry closure
This is some pretty solid stuff for a brewery whoís hoppy beers I have enjoyed for years. Stronger on the spice side than most IPAs and DIPA, more reminiscent of a Rye DIPA. Itís also not the most complex citrus or pine hop aroma or flavor for an IPA, but itís got the bitterness part covered. Pretty nice looking beer with a good mouthfeel, and the flavor is solid too.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
American pint, keg. Pours medium amber with medium light haze and a medium thin white head subsiding average. Scent is medium light citrus and light soap. Taste is dense early hops with very high bitterness. Hints of hickory smoke on the nose. Little bit of wood resins and a little soap. Mouthfeel is medium dense creamy and light dryness. Nearly a great beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Wegmans in Collegeville. The Mach 10 poured an orange color with a thick, pillowy beige head. The nose features some grassy, fruity and piney hops, along with a good amount of bready malt. The body is very well balanced. Nothing about this beer really stands out. The hop profile is delicious, with piney and bitter flavors. Thereís just the right amount of malt on the palate as well. But nothing really jumps out of the glass that separates this beer from another.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not my favorite in an awesome family of IPAs and IIPAs from the Bear, but a nice big blast of bittersweet citrus, with some accompanying spice as well. Fairly juicy with a bitter earthy finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at AA (the bar, not the group). Big orange character with a juicy mouthfeel, fresh pine with a minty edge, notes of biscuit and marmalade, dry hoppy finish. Cascade really shines nicely in this dangerously drinkable iipa.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at AA. Thanks Davido! Hazy orange golden color with a big soapy off-white head. Big hop aromas with orange, pine, biscuity malts and pine standing out. Medium body but hides the abv very well. Sweetness on the palate with good pithy, citrusy bitterness. Long, bitter finish that lingers. Very nice.

In the glass it has a honey amber color with a nice head. Lots of fruit on the nose with flowers and herbs. Taste has tropical fruits and citrus followed by a big wave of bitterness. Long finish.
