3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at brewpub. Pours orange with a thin white head. Slight fruity note on the nose. A bit of hop flavor on the note. A slight bitter thing on the finish. Decent for sale but the moniker is a bit hyperbolic.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy amber color. No nose to speak of. Malt heavy IPA that tastes more like ESB. If this is the flagship beer of this brewery, it doesn’t say much.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Well hopped nose. Hazy golden orange in color with excellent head. Very smooth and thick. Strong malt backbone but well balanced still with hops. Funny name and I love the pint glass that goes with!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at brewpub, the pour is a dark brown, the smell is very hoppy, the taste is a very earthy hop and over the bitterness is just about right, really quite good, the description was an english IPA, so I wasnt expecting as much hop. But this was a pretty decent offering

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
growler. Pours a dark mahogany red color with nice sustaining off white head. Aroma of resiny, nectary, with big caramel, molasses malty notes as well. Medium to full bodied, quite creamy and a bit chewy. They describe it as an english IPA, and the flavor is definitely balanced, but there is a ton of hop presence, don’t be fooled. Low carbonation for the style, plenty of caramel and biscuit, a hint of toffee, and sweet, necary / resiny hops on the finish, with a lasting bitterness. Quite nice, very enjoyable.
