Cat pee and grapefruit. Nice. Taste is more interesting, minerals, bitterness, pineapple, sparkly. Good stuff.

Bottle. Bright hazy orange. Aroma and taste are tangerine and tropical fruit with pine and a perfect malt balance. Medium to full body, lively carb, and a pretty rich finish. Really awesome. (From memory, forgot this one last night)

Bottle. Glowing hazy orange gold with a thick white head. Aroma is tons of tropical fruit and melon. Taste is similar but adds some citrus and floral notes. Medium spritzy mouthfeel. Really good.

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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
