3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle: pours a clear bright golden with a clingy-lacing white head. Has a sweet light caramel malty and fresh hoppy nose. Starts with decent fullness and lots of sweet pale malts with some resiny hop notes and bitter balance before a slightly drier bittersweet finish. Could be a little crisper, with less sweetness, but still a decent IPA.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
The pour is orange in color with a white head. Smells like candied oranges, sugar, and caramel. Not much else going on here. Super sweet flavor. Some tangerine, candied oranges, floral hops and a mild pine. Tons of sugar, caramel, and bread. This is just not good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Hazy golden beer with a minimal, white head. Aromas of pine, and fruit. Tastes of subtle pine/spruce notes, some floral flavors, and very nice hints of grapefruit. I think it even has some tropical fruit flavors in there as well, maybe some mango. Bittersweet finish. A bit sticky, juicy beer. A decent malt backbone works well with the other flavors in this brew. Solid overall.

Pours a slightly hazy light amber color. Smells floral and slightly buttery. Tastes similarly, pleasant floral notes and medium body. Slight sweetness. Sessionable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. It pours golden yellow with good clarity and a full off-white head that slowly fades. On the nose it is piney and floral with pale malts and bread in there as well. The body is roundabout medium. At first the taste has a slight sweet character but it is swiftly overtaken by the hoppy bitterness most associated with IPA’s. This was a nice one.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Moderate malt and hop aromas of roasted, caramel, biscuit and pine, light soapy cheese and meat for the yeast with some background fruity esters. Head is small, frothy, off-white with fair lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is slightly hazy, light amber/orange. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, a little slick with a soft carbonation. A little off in the aroma, but this is mostly a nice drinking IPA.
