3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle given to me by beastiefan2k. Pour is a slight hazed burnt orange copper with a well formed 3 inch light tan head. Thick coating lacing left behind as the head goes down. Aroma is caramel toasted malt along with a fresh resin citrus orange. There is citrus peel present as well, nice balanced nose. Taste is the nose, nice balance between toasted nutty sweet caramel and the orange citrus, resin grassy hops. The finish is dry with some additional grass and mineral. The balance of the taste is actually more towards the malt, which gives it a nice body. Palate is medium bodied, normal carbonation levels and the dry finish. Nice IPA, thanks for bringing this back for me Eugene.

Bottle. Sweet aroma with good balance of citrus and pine. Cloudy orange with a big white head. Very malty, biscuit and toast, with earthy pine hops. Good bitterness, firm but smooth.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I wasn’t crazy about this. It pours a pretty dark amber with a good-sized white head. The nose is perhaps what turns me off most. Kind of musty and earthy, with a bit of pine apparent. Just strange. I like mustiness and barnyard in a good saison, but it’s not appealing in an IPA. The flavor is also piney and perhaps a bit vegetal. I drank this next to the Oskar Blues Gubna IIPA and the Mikkeller-BrewDog I Hardcore You IIPA, and it was definitely the loser of the bunch. Not bad, but not something I’d go out of my way to obtain.

Candy bubble gum with parts of spice show well with this nicely hopped IPA. Pours deep amber and drops a nice citrus and spice nuance on the sweet finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pine bubble gum with a woody coating in a wet-dry texture followed by a rather Earthy citrus aroma. Nicely done! The pine does overtake the citrus a bit.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz - A little too sweet for me, missing some of the malt fullness, and by no means an IPA to me. Outstanding for Florida.
