3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can… Clear orange pour with a small, wispy, off-white head. The nose is a blend of caramel, cookie, citrus and pine. Full-bodied and almost chewy with tickling carbonation. At room temperature, this baby has a firm malt backbone, but all residual sweetness is pulverized by a heavy-handed Simcoe hop bill and schedule. Assertive, citrus rind and pith bitterness in both the flavor and lengthy finish.

Pours an orange yellow. Aroma of flowery citrus hops. Taste is lightly malted with bitter notes stretching from the first second through the taste. Good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a clear golden with some light white head. Aroma is pineapple and dirt but nothing overwhelming be that good or bad. Taste is more pineapple at the front with some maltyness midway through and some overly bitter and not pleasant aftertaste. I didn’t get a lot of tropical from this but it was still a descent IPA. Love the can!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Overall pretty good IPA here. The simcoe hops obviously shine in this brew. Aroma is not as hoppy as the taste, great mouthfeel on this one. Taste is bitter resinous simcoe Hoppiness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy simcoe hop and small malt aroma. Medium to abundant body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy earthy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. This is a good beer.
