3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours amber with a pillowy thick head that left a ton of lacing. Nice earthy malt notes with enough hop flavors to complement nicely. This was much tastier than expected.

12 ounce bottle, 3/31/15. Hazy orange, fine dark floating particles, thin creamy off-white head. Decent retention. Aroma of tropical, citrus hops, biscuit malt. The taste is tropical, citrus hops, a weird twangy note, pale malt, sawdust. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz into a harpoon pint. Tons of sediment in the pour, cloudy glazed orange, mild amber sunshine. Head is built fast then melts to a thin layer of bubbles, islands, lite lacing. Aroma of pine syrup, sap, grassy hops, strong malt backbone. Taste of pine, resin, thick and glossed over orange syrup, mild hop attack, flat carbonation, difficult to fully enjoy. Could be an old bottle, but probably not. Its OK.

Bottle in CT shared with the sibs during Upwords. Pours hazy, deep gold with a frothy, off-white head. The aroma holds earthy, herbal hops and toasted grains. Light to medium sweet flavor with lots of toasted malt, bread, grains, resinous and herbal hops, pine. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Piney and resinous on the finish, with further grainy malts. OK.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Rusty orange and light-resistant, with a nice standing head of firm pillowtop. Well balanced all the way, with a subtle yet rustic aroma of woodsy hops. This is a meaty drink, with a full body. I like the equilibrium here, with a robust malty beer as its base, and a nice earthy hop finish. (#5816, 10/13/2014)

Bottle. Deep hazy light amber color with thick stick white head. Aroma of citrus and toffee. Well balanced. Nice hop bitterness followed by a sweet malt backbone. Nothing special. Just a solid IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dank hop aroma with a malty backbone. Never really knew what dank smelled like, but this smells dank. Not bad, just dank. Flavor is malt, but almost a syrupy malty. Not great. Hops provide some balance and a slight bitter finish, but this is a malt dominated, not quite balanced ipa. Ok but nothing special.

On Tap at the brewery in Troy, NY. Pours copper with long lived white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of caramel malt, ripe fruit and hint of hops. Body is medium and crisp. Citrusy hops caramel malt, ripe fruit combine on the palate. Finish is long and bitter. One of many OK IPAs.
