On tap at Marciero it pours a golden copper with a foamy off-white head & a deliciously pungent pine & citrus aroma. Medium to full bodied with a fairly dry finish. The taste is a wonderful mix of citrus & pine plus enough malts to support the hops. Great stuff.

Nice IPA. Citrus smell orange, big aroma, nice lacing. Dark orange/light brown color. Taste is grapefruit, lemon peel. Bitter end. Massive hops.

Nice tropical fruity nose. Malty, lots of tropical fruits, in fact a tropical fruit bomb, but the hops don’t sing or shine that much. Maltier IPA, but nic balance. Pleasent drinking, though nothing mind blowing.

Draught at Two Dogs. Nice amber with big head. Citrus hop aroma, incredibly original. Flavour is fantastically bitter, lots of hops and citrus. Avoids the caramel and malts of other IPAs. Psyched to taste this one!

"Pretty run of the mill balanced iPa. Adequately hoppy with a good dose of biscuity and sweet malt. Bittwrsweet finish. Not worth going out of your way for, but nice enough..."

As of late I can not find the time to take tasting notes of each beer I sample. I would like to track and record my thoughts of each so I will just use the simple scoring rubric until more time is available.

Tap at Marciero. Nice hoppy nose, tropical fruits and citrus. Pretty clean malts. Flavors of stone fruit, rich malts, citrus and tropical. Not surprising but very tasty and enjoyable.

On tap at the brewpub. Clear yellow pour with an off white head. Grassy hop aromas. Mild mineral and bitter grassy hop notes. Good balance with a sturdy malt backbone. Good body and mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Good IPA. Strong citrus and pine aroma that was promising. Copper-golden color with a full head. Full palate with some weight and smooth. Carbonation was good. Strong but non-harsh hops bitterness flavor with a crisp background with grains and some sweetness. Nice and tasty.
