3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours clear yellow gold with a big meringue white head that retains well and leaves little lacing.
The aroma is a little subdued - sweet crystal malts with fruit and piney hops.
The flavor is sweet malts with citrus and tropical fruit and some resiny piney floral hops with good bitterness although a bit chalky. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a nice fruity resiny IPA.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I liked this, it comes with a really large amount of mango aroma, and a delightful sweetness of aroma overall. Itís quietly bitter without overdoing it and is crisp to drink with a neutral finish. I could go quite a few of this before getting bored itís a bit good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours crystal clear gold with a moderate white head. Aromas of honey, grapefruit juice, candied oranges, and mango. Flavours are smooth and of sweet mango, and orange marmalade up front. Transitions to orange peel and finally bitter pith. Alcohol becomes apparent as the beer slightly warms. Bitterness builds in the finish as the residual sweetness fades away.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz single bottle from Mollyís Spirits. Clear golden appearance with a small, sticky, lingering white head. Hoppy aroma of stone fruits, tropical fruits, citrus zest, pine, grass, flowers and earth. Similar flavor, moderate hop bitterness and a light toasty graininess with minimal to light sweetness. Medium body with a bitter, light dry finish. Solid IPA overall, pretty drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden nice head. Very piney hop nose and flavors, a touch grapefruity. Malts are a little buttery, seems maybe some diacetyl. Also hint of vegetal finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2015-06-05. Crisp bright orange body with a small quick beige head. Aroma is hoppy, green hops up front then a mix of tropical and citrus fruit. Flavour is pleasant but a touch muddled (or possibly a touch old?), moderately bitter throughout, resiny hops and light fruit notes. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Okay. A bit disappointing, Iím wondering if itís maybe not a super fresh bottle? Bottle at Edmonton Craft Beer Festival.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle in San Diego. This is a solid, although uninteresting, IPA. Light fruity aroma. Nice amber color. Bitter and hoppy; very drinkable, unremarkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Into a shaker showing a well filtered, dark onion brown.
The aroma shows generous notes of shrewd cannabis with big notes of resinous pine
The palate shows medium bodied, light and foamy mouth feel with most of the same flavors on the palate. Juicy citrus flavors on the mid-palate with a very light IPA-sharp bitterness at the end. Clean and flavorful, not bursting with flavors but a moderate intensity throughout. A balanced summer sipper great for knocking back despite the alcohol percentage.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very nice, clear orange/gold color. It has nice lacing, but minimal head retention. Smells sort of like apricot or peach. Has quite a bitter taste and finishes slightly sweet with tart background notes. A complex beer, and one that I would drink again!
