3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The pour was a medium cloudy yellow with a large (2-3 finger) fluffy white head that reduced slightly to a large cap of foam that lasted throughout thus producing some excellent sheeting of lacing.
The aroma was mild to say the least of a grain malt and a grassy hop with mild hints of caramel and citrus (grapefruit and orange peel).
The taste was mildly bitter with a light malty feel and a small note of caramel at first and then became nice and hoppy with a good strong bitter citrus finish. The flavor lasted a nice long time proceeding the swallow, with a good strong hoppy taste left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a lively carbonation.
Overall an extremely hoppy brew with a very nice bitter citrus presence...

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Pale amber / yellow brew with white head. Good head retention. Aroma of light herbal hops, grass, a little funk. Taste is lightly vegetal at the very start, transitioning to a nice herbal / floral/ grass hoppiness and a moderately hoppy dry finish. Very moderate and low key - more like a lighter APA than an IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Deep gold body with a fizzy, white head. Aroma of orange, leafy hops, pine, grapefruit rind, citrus and toasted grain. Hint of wet grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Tastes of orange and citrus. Just sweet enough to overshadow raw graininess. An IPA that has more depth than many. A bit unclean, but the pluses outweigh the minuses. Enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. poured cleard crisp yellow..decent lacing even for the glass i was using...the only downfall for this beer is if it is 75 ibu’s, where are they..i got no real taste of hops in the aroma, nor the taste nor anytime during the process and if they dry hopped this i am sorry but it missed somewhere. it was decent enough to drink but i not hoppy about this.
