Growler fill at City Vinyard. Pours a yellow orange color with a small white head. Nose is very floral and piney, taste is the same with a strong hoppy bitter finish. A little dry on the end. Not much going on here, mostly grassy pine and bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Several pints on tap. Hazy golden with a lasting film of cream. Nose is caramel, floral hop, resin and light citrus. Tastes of spicy resin, floral and citrus hops with a nice dose of caramel and honeycomb. Light medium body is soft and has a smooth medium carbonation. Nice balance makes this one dangerously drinkable.

On tap at Tapwerks! Pours a near clear golden amber with a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a 2.5 finger foamy head. Sticky lacing patterns, big and small.
S - Fresh cut pine needles, juicy grapefruit oil citrus, floral honeysuckle. Very green and pungent hop aromas.
T - Clean grapefruit, mandarin, and mango mixes with a soft floral bouquet. Bitter pine comes in strong and sticks to the sides of the tongue. Sweet pale and malt layers underneath the full flavored hops. Has a some tart strawberries along with a green apple-like acidity. A honeysuckle sweetness starts in the middle and stays through the bitter finish. Dry on the aftertaste
M - Smooth and lush feel. Moderate carbonation.
Awesome nose! Loads of fresh hop flavor. Citrus, pine, floral, and tropical. It was very surprised by this one. A little light in the malt category but I didn’t mind.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a pretty orange with moderate white head. Fresh, grassy aroma. Very hoppy and bitter; the ABV is well-hidden. I get a distinct apricot flavor toward the finish. Easily my favorite offering from Choc. I wish it was offered year-round.

12oz bottle tastes like your basic 4C IPA with some odd skunk in the finish not bad for 4 mOnths old

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at The Flying Saucer in Little Rock. Pours a lightly hazed, golden-orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma has a light orange citrus pine with a bit of a tropical fruit floral hopping. Lightly sweetened pale malts with a light bready caramel. Flavor is similar. Orange and grapefruit up front with a light line resin as well as a few florals. Light caramel and breadiness in the middle to balance before this finishes dry with a medium-light bitterness, a few resins and florals, and a light sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA. Nothing special, but some citrus florals and light pines with a balanced bready caramel.

On tap at Pete’s Place. Served a copper color with a small head and bits of lacing. Aroma is a mixture of citrus and pine with some malt sweetness and hint of spice. Taste is similar with citrus and pine and malt sweetness. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body, crisp and a bit refreshing 7.7 % ABV is well hidden. Decent drinker, good for a couple. Nice offering from a small regional brewer.
