3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap-pours a big foamy light tan head that laces with copper color. Aroma is citrus hops, secondary medium malt. Taste is citrus hops, balanced nicely with secondary medium malt, alcohol. Not the slick mouthfeel of many 2IPA’s, still powerful.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Floral hoppy aroma with lighter fruity and piney notes. The flavor has floral and light piney hops, with lightly sweet malty notes. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured an amber color with a medium sized off white head that left beautiful lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus fruits, pine, and light caramel malt aroma. Taste of spices, mint, some pine, and a long dry bitterness. Would have preferred more malts, to back up this hop bomb.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Regular Tap. Pours a nice clear light copper/orangey with a large fluffy off white head, good retention and solid lace. Aroma is nice sharp fruity and pungent citrus, orangy and lightly piney hops- light on the malt- but lightly toasty and some light caramel hints. Good clean hop flavor with some floral, fruity and citrus hops- modest malt profile, but it is skewed towards hops. Bitter but not overly so. Very smooth. Great IPA, not quite a DIPA though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hazed brown/orange pour with a nice creamy off white head and lace. Medium evergreen hops on the nose and flavor followed by a good full malt backbone to balance this beer out. Full/medium bodied beer with good carbonation. A very nice beer that I wish was closer to home.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler thanks to Briank. Poured a lightly hazed orange-amber with a small off-white head. Pine and caramel with a touch or wort in the nose. Pine and citrus taste that almost covers the malt. A mild-medium sweetness and a long bitterness. medium bodied. Pretty good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours ruby red from tap. Not a ton of aroma from tap which is disappointing because its an IP bloody A. Some hints of citrus on the tongue but they’re too fleeting. Finish is cleanish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good sized dense head of fine bubbles. Off-white in color. Decent carbonation. Reduces to a thin wisp of foam which hangs around for the duration. Lively hoppy aroma with plenty of floral hops, malts and a hint of cucumber. Color is a nice dark amber/orange. Wonderful balance. Malty, roasted grains with a little bit of nuts. Little heat from the alcohol. Finish is bitter and a little dry. Pretty clean. A very good IIPA with great balance.
