2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Plonk. Hop dominated aroma, grapefruit, pine, good resiny bitterness, but not balanced by malt. Cloying in the back of mouth, not unpleasant but not great either.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep golden colour with a staying 1/2 inch of head. Strong aroma of sweet stone fruits, oranges and maybe even a little bubblegum? Grassy hops come through in the taste backed up by a fairly sweet malt backbone, lingering grassiness and moderate bitterness. Pretty different for an IIPA, I like it!

~Citrusy orange aroma with resinous pine and grapefruit. Sweet honey maltiness.
~Pours a hazy orange amber color with creamy long lasting off white head.
~Strong resinous piney hop flavor with citrus and earthy notes. Sweet bread maltiness.
~Medium full bodied, medium high CO2, hop astringency, lingering piney resinous hop finish.
~Not a huge IPA fan anymore, but this is quite an enjoyable sipper. Would only want to drink one of these.

Bitterness not immediately up front but occurs during/after the swallow. Malty, resinous hop aroma and full-bodied complex flavor to match. Sweetness really balances this one out and brings the hop to a good level in the mouth. Good brew!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice light orange pour, quick head. Nose is alcohol first, quickly followed by pine. Bracingly bitter. Middle is almost "hot" from hop bitterness, with roasted malt losing the battle. Finish starts malt sweet, but hops quickly tack back to bitter. A noble sacrificing of hops
