4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very nice golden color and large white head, as pored from the large, 650 ML bottle. Back to an IPA that has the strong bitterness I have come to expect, or did, before trying some Japanese craft IPA’s.
the hops really stand out in typical IPA fashion. It gets a bit smoother as you progress through the glass and turns into a nice, freshly bitter beer. This is back to the real taste of a classic IPA done right. Strong and full bodied, but doesn’t fight you all the way down.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at GABF 2014. Glad to find this brewery after making a note to myself to make sure to try their stuff. Overboard IPA pours a typical golden body with white head. Nose is soft citrus fruits, light bitterness suggested, faint spice and fruit. Mouthfeel is nice soft citrus fruits, maybe a hint of mango & melon and pine as well. Really solid offering.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy, aroma is not all that bright, maybe on the dank side. The taste is mellow, a little hop spicy, but just ok.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle hand delivered by Duchammer: Poured a copper orange with finger off white head. Aroma is huge citrus/grapefruit hops, very fresh. Awesome harsh hops slap you in the mouth, more citrus/grapefruit, semi balancing malt character towards the back, and drying finish.
