4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Habersham Beverage Warehouse. It pours a clear amber orange with a large head of off-white foam. The head stays around forever leaving nice lacing. The nose has lots of pine, tropical fruit, and resin. The flavor is all hops. Resin, pine needles, a little herbal note, and a slight tropical sweetness I can’t quite place. Medium bodied with average carbonation leading to a lengthy, bitter finish. It’s very good. Not Two Hearted good, but very good. Especially if you like a little less malt presence in your IPA.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 355 cl: Unclear amber beer with a reddish edge and a creamy, lacing off-white head. Sweetish fruity-malty aroma with notes of toasted malt, caramel, pine and surprisingly subtle hints of mandarin, orange and grapefruit. The taste is sweet, fruity and medium bitter with lots of caramel and citrus notes. Quitre complex, actually. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Long dry, bitter finish.

Bottled 355ml. -from Kihoskh, Copenhagen. Clear amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, malty fruity nose. Toasted malt, caramel and fruits with subdued hoppy notes. Alcohol is noticable specially in the finish. Let’s say overated beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of MikeLuke23. Thanks Mike. Pours a cloudy light amber with a small light tan head that has good retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The aroma is light grapefruit, sugar cookie, and a bit of tangerine. Quite sweet. The taste is sweet sugar cookie, caramel, and some light grapefruit. The finish has a strong bitterness. Medium body. Medium-low carbonation. Overall, not that enjoyable. Too sweet. The flavors are in general quite bland with not enough hop presence.

Good Everyday IPA. Nice inviting aroma of Hops. Nice balance of hops and bitterness. Crafted very well compared to other craft breweries. Slightly Hazy with a light frothy head, Jai Alai is tasty if your only drinking one....or six of them.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a bog, fluffy off-white/yellowish head. Good lacing. Sweet and fat citrus and pine hop aroma on a malty background. Remote candy-like note. Flavour is pretty much the same, although somewhat sweeter, and with a nice bitterness thrown in for good measure. Bitter finish with a lingering grassy note. Overall a good, solid and well-made IPA. Maybe a bit too sweet, but not much. 25.10.11.
