4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at City Beer. Wow. This was very impressive. It pours a golden color with a creamy white head. The aroma is incredible with huge tropical fruit, gooseberries, mango, pineapple and grapefruit. The flavor is full and creamy with grapefruit and pine with some white grape and a bit of diesel bitterness in the finish. Very bitter in fact. Great full body without a hint of caramel sweetness. This one is right up my alley except for the punishing bitter finish. They could have gone a little more subtle there. Still awesome though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fresh growler shared at a BBQ. Pours a deep burnt orange color with no light coming through. Very cloudy and murky with a nice soapy head sitting on top. Nice big aroma of citrus, pine, some hay, grass and sweet malts. Flavor is impressive, with a big blast of grapefruit, mango, resins and more pine. Lots of accompanying bitterness balanced by a big malty body. Malty caramel sweetness, a little toasty. You can feel the high ABV on this one, but the taste is very good. After taste of sweetness and pine, very nice mouth and great carbonation. A really nice surprise IPA from a small town. Unfortunately the brewery wasn’t open in time for me to check it out, but nice breakfast joints are around.

On tap for beer week! Aroma is citrus hops. Poured dark, like dark copper, diminishing head with little lacing. Flavor is great. Very bitter but good malt balance. Very good ipa! Palate is medium bodied and finishes sort of dry, very drinkable.
