4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted on 7/12/14 from a capped 12oz bottle, big thanks to Pete for snagging this in Cleveland for me. Pours hazy burnt orange with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to average, uneven lace. The nose is a really great blend of floral, earthy dank, and resinous hops with an almost rye bread-like malt aroma. The flavor is the same, one of the most balanced IPA’s I have had, with all of the floral, touch of dank, bit of resin, and even some peppercorn and the same spicy malt from the nose. The body is just under medium with just above average carbonation and a long spicy hoppy finish.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz. bottle at Robert H’s wedding; bottled on 8/24/16. Aroma: Prominent butterscotch with lighter, astringent citrus. Appearance: Coppered, somewhat hazy gold with soft carbonation holding up a tuft of foamy tan head that settles into a sticky skin. Flavor: Sweet butterscotch hard candy up front with dose of citrus hops that are much more bitter than juicy; the finish is bitter and semi-sweet. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Old-school American IPA that’s a bit of an anachronism in the current market.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled on 061616. Nose a little bland, hints of spice and earth, grapefruit paramount. Pour hazy orange with golden undertones and a very large and rocky, oily cream head. Taste very dry with medium resin, light spice, medium grapefruit but the citrus is a little muddled; overall flavor profile is also a bit muddled, some nice medium caramel with medium bitterness, flat and clean, not too earthy. There’s some fresh malt but not much of it, but the top notes of lemony citrus are bright and the overall effect is fresh and clean. Fullish body a bit flabby, but that doesn’t detract from the refreshing character or smooth go-down. Mixed bag, really, with some potential after tweaks. [2016.08.09: 3.1]
