3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice clear orange amber body with a white head that had nice retention and great lacing. Aroma had a nice mix of resin hops and floral hops. Initial flavor had some nice caramel malts upfront and a decent blend of some resin hops, but mostly floral hops. A slight citrus flavor in the finish. Nice and dry in the finish. A balanced IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Lots of fresh pine and grapefruit, with a sweet caramel backbone. Cloudy copper with a thin beige head. Tastes just as it smells whit have very light bitterness. Well balanced and leaning towards sweetness, a very easy drinking IPA.

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.

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.
