Clear deep gold. Super dank nose with loads of pine, dank hops. Malty, but very balanced with plenty of hop bitterness. This beer is loaded. Would have sworn it was a DIPA. Great stuff.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. 15cl sample. Thanks Noize. The aroma is a nice mixture of tropical fruits and unions with some toffee malts. Clear, amber coloured beer with a lasting, medium, off-white head. The taste is moderate bitter, has the tropical hop fruit explosion from the aroma together with some pine and caramel malts. Medium dry. Goes down easy even for the relative high abv.

Bottle from Whole Foods. Hazy orange gold with lasting head and a little lace. Orange grapefruit aroma with a touch of honey. Bready orangy toffee malt sweetness with some cereal graininess and medium bitter finish with citrus and lingering pine. Medium body lively fine carbo accentuates hops. Definitely a classic rendition of a classic style. Just what it should be. Nothing outrageous but nailed the balance and flavors of the classic American IPA.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear deep golden hue with a large fluffy ivory head. Giant juicy nose that’s beautifully full of orange rind, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, and sweet melon tones. Smooth and delightful flavor that’s somewhere between crisp and fluffy, but also citrusy bitter but balanced by lots of pale malty smoothness. Somewhat grapefruity and grassy and slightly tropical on the flavor, just a little sweet and just the right amount of American bitterness for IPA status.
