Growler thanks to Ryan. Clear amber pour; caramel at end. I originally wrote "dank" but was informed "savory" is a better term -- I’ll roll with that. Also aged cheese or something. Slick, oily texture. strong bitter finish. Medium body. Some onion (did I actually taste it this time? I hope so, that would be rad. Otherwise it’s the nachos, who knows). Lasting bitter cheesy finish.

From growler, shared in Seattle. Thick heavy orange, some sweaty funk, cheese. Slight waxy hop, lots of tart cheddar, lactic notes. Savory, umami flavor sticks around. Smooth full body. Nice beer.

Growler -- thanks Ryan.
Clear gold. Oniony citra nose. Sharp savory flavors, Malts far backgrounded. perfectly good exemplar, but that’s about it. I see why lots of people like it, but it’s not really my thing.

Growler split at a tasting. Pours a clear golden color with a slightly off putting aroma. Bitter. Flavor slightly redeeming with some tropical fruit and sweet malty character. A lot of citrus hops on the finish. Flavor alone I van enjoy this IPA. A bit of a thicker body. A lot of fruit. Not a standout IPA for me but overall I enjoyed this.

Holy citrus hop man! Wow this one is great on the nose but will crush the taste buds. Really enjoyed this on tap, but could be a bit more refined in its finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Hog’s Apothecary. It pours a clear golden color with a nice white head. The aroma is hugely juicy with tropical fruit, mango, blueberry, pineapple, light bread and a touch of spicy dank. The flavor is super bitter with spice, dank, blueberry muffins, tropical fruit, florals and mild pine in the finish. Truly potent hop character, but a bit too bitter for me.

Pint at good karma. Golden yellow. Nice clarity with a half a finger head. The nose is explosive. Tons of grapefruit and a touch of lemon. Oh boy. There’s that mosaic. Very soft start with all of the right flavors. The malt gets out of the way. There is a harsh cannabis taste and a touch of honey sweetness that detracts. Everything else is solid

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Crystal clear orange color with white lacing. Bright aroma of citrus, mango, peach, and guava. Mild to moderate sweetness backed by dried orange peel bitterness. The crispest, cleanest finish possible. Smooth, perfectly carbed, and with a rather abrupt end.

Hazy golden-orange body, medium to large white head, soapy lacing. Mango, blueberry, orange, grapefruit, dankness, and other tropical fruits. Medium bodied, a tad sweet but manageable, moderate carbonation, lively bitterness.
