2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy copper amber with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is tropical fruits and resiny hops and some sweet biscuit malt.
The flavor is sweet biscuity toffee malts with a little tropical fruit and a decent amount of bitterness but not a lot of flavor from the hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery with smooth carbonation.
Overall, an OK IPA.

This bottle was sent to me by Strykzone. Bottling date was 4/2012 so it is a bit old. Poured a copper color with a big yellowish head with lots of lacing. Bottle kept gushing after the first pour. Nose of tropical fruits, and some citrus. Medium in body with a highly carbonated mouthfeel. Flavor is pine and citrus. Bitter finish. OK.

355 mL bottle. Doesn’t look especially fantastic. The aroma isn’t especially strong. It has mostly pine resin. The flavour is more interesting. It is hops, but not the usual pine/citrus/floral/earthy. If I had to use those usual markers, I would say a combo of citrus and earthy. Not terribly bitter. Interesting, though.

Bottle. Copper with small white head. Aroma of grass and earthy hops. Light body with grassy and citrus hop bitterness upfront and some malt presence with a slight bitter hop finish.
