3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler pour from Whole Foods in Chandler, AZ pours clear deep copper with thin gold edges and supporting a dirty white head of foam that leaves behind spotty lacing. The aroma offers up citrus hops and some malty breadiness. The taste is citrus hops that mostly have soft edges and roll into a modest degree of sweet maltiness and then a bit of bread dough. It grows in citrus hop bitterness to midway and into the finish. Pretty tame and soft for an IPA but pretty darn tasty.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle given as a gift. Pours gold-orange color with a beige head. Aroma is heavy pine with some grapefruit ccoming through. Not smelling much of a malt presence. Taste is underwhelming. Mild bitterness from start to finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. Palate is light bodied with a long nasty aftertaste. A ggod beer just no pleasure since this style has little interest or liking from me.
