4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft. Pours an orange toned body with a white head. Huge floral citrus, and earth tones, cedar and pepper notes with grapefruit tones. Cedar wood, light tangerine accents and mild peppermint notes. Dunno but if your not thinking amazing already somethings wrong with you! A mild warming, one hell of an incredible IPA, serious NY i’m disappointed in you.

On tap at RnH. Golden orange with ring. Fruity orange herbal aroma. Cedar spice orange candy herbal flavors. Bitter cedar throughout. I went home afterward to see if I could replicate the experience by pouring an IPA on my old wooden floor and then licking it up.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Rattle n’ Hum Cigar City event. Thin orange pour. Really nice aroma of floral and citrus hops mixed with cedar spice. Flavor of perfume and a strong presence of oak and citrus hops. Surprisingly earthy. I expected (and hoped for) something more delicate to go with the nose. The earthy finish lingers for quite a while.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Rattle N Hum for the Cigar City event. Poured a clear orange amber body underneath a bubbly white head. Aroma was loads of fresh sticky hops, cereal grains, lavender, chamomile tea. Perfect palate, mediu bodied with average carbonation and a crisp biting finish. Flavor of fresh hops, ceral grains, light perfume and lavender. Really good IPA and a nice subtle blend of extra flowers for aroma and taste.

On tap at Rattle N Hum for their Cigar City event. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Nice flowery aromas, citrus hops, earthy, malty. Flavor doesn’t quite hit what the aromas promised, picking up some light vegetal flavors before moving into a nice bitter finish.

On tap at Rattle’n’Hum’s Cigar City event. A pretty dry IPA with a noticable quinine-like flavor, and notes of fruit and flowers. Someone else tasted jasmine, and I concur.
