3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy orangish copper with a frothy white head. Aroma of citrus pine, resin, grapefruit, caramel and floral esthers. Taste is caramel, sweet pale malts, pine, grapefruit, light tropical fruits and a nice smooth bitterness. Overall this was a nice ipa but it seemed a bit light for a 75 ibu ipa and being 6.5 percent. Balance was mainly good just seemed light.

I didnít like this IPA as much as the pale ale. Reddish amber with a thin head. Hops were fruity, a bit tropical. Fairly sweeter caramel and fruit flavors with understated hops. Peppery persimmon is the most I got out of it.
