3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a hazy golden body with a one finger white foamy head gently clings and forms valleys, some carbonation is seen rising, some really nice foamy clingy lacing appears.
The smell had some hops, malts, but combined and not really showing too much.
The taste was balanced through hops and malts, but average.
The palate was about a light to medium, sessionable, smooth and slightly crisp, citrusy aftertaste and finish.
Overall, I’d have it again fresh if given the opportunity.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poursa golden color with a slight haze and big fluffy cream colored head. The nose is fruity, spicy hops. I think this is an old bottle... Stale malt, cardboard, spicy, fruit. The body is light with decent carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
3/3/14. 22oz bomber from Exit 18. Amber orange pour, super over-carbonated, huge, huge fizzy tan head that fluffs up but fades awa. Floral, earthy hop aroma, black tea. Malty caramel flavor, earthy, floral. Either old, gross, or both. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium dark body with foamy white head. Biscuit and hop aroma, though subtle. Taste is more on the malty side for an IPA. Okay.

Solid ipa, I do enjoy their darker offerings a bit more though. The citrus hops are balanced well with some malt goodness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap: overcast golden color with tangerine-like edges; translucent & full of yeasty haze. A thin, swampy film covers the beer in place of an actual head. Aroma has strong notes of both pine & orange. Various citric-like peel notes with some pine needles & pungent hop oils. Nothing spectacular, but balanced fairly well. Taste is strong orange; juicy & sweet. Oily, resinous hops with some pine. Faint pale malt, bittersweet finish. A good & balanced beer, but not stand-out enough to warrant many repurchases.

Bottle from Plonk. Clear mid-amber/orange, citrusy, dusty/musty, sweet caramel malt, resinous aftertaste, medium bitterness, medium body. Quite good, but more APA than IPA I thought.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mari’s. Pours hazy orange with a large white head that has good retention, decent lacing. The aroma is mostly citrus notes and is more on the orange than grapefruit side.. maybe a touch of apricot. There are minor floral notes. The taste has a good bit of mango, very light bitterness, and a slightly chalky finish. OK but enjoyable.
