3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours reddish orange amber. Aroma has some floral hops, blossoming. Somehow I can feel strawberries… and a bit of alcohol. Taste is quite well balanced, fruity with some citrus. It has a nice body, well balanced with hops. Aftertaste has some grapefruit peel bitterness, lasts longer. As an IPA, this one is good, nicely bitter and not too heavy. Almost session able - only if it didn’t have that high abv!

Malty floral ish hop aroma. Taste is of slightly roasted malt and nicely balanced with hops, mix of floral and slight pine. Bitter finish. Not overly hoppy or malty. Well balanced and an enjoyable ipa.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 26 fl oz bottle. Nice looking medium copper amber pour with a lingering off-white head. Moderate aroma of earthy hops and caramel malts. The body is a bit better than medium. Quick upfront sweetness followed by a bolder hop finish. Vague grapefruit. A decent IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery and from growler at home. Poured in a Chimay chalice.
Pours amber with modest head and lace.
Aroma of straw and floral hops, slight minerals.
Moderate carbonation and penetrating mouthfeel.
Flavors of bitter straw hops, grapefruit rind, lemon mist, guava extract, white and black pepper, slight malt sweetness. There’s a bitterness that penetrates the tongue.
Overall big and tasty with strong bitter hops.
It’s not my preferred profile of hops, but I respect this enough to get a growler now and again.
