3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from hapjydeuce. Golden amber in color, nice generous super fluffy primarily white head, incredible creamy retention, nearly continuous lacing, looked among the best in style. The aroma was full piney and citrus hops, good herbal and earthy notes too, probably some malts under all the scents. The flavor was nice malt backbone followed by a full kick of citrus hops, some pine, definite earthy-herbal notes, finishing with some very faint teabags, but in a nice way. Body is full and fluffy almost, a solid IPA! Thanks, Justin.

Bottle, thanks to eyedrinkale. Aroma of fruit, tangerines, and some grapefruit. Flavor is mostly grapefruit hops with some pine bitterness following. I will re-rate this one when I have a bigger sample.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber consumed at The Local in San Diego cause the tap selection was weak. Pours clear deep gold with impressive lumpy-pillowy white head. Medium nose of mild sweet malts and citrus hops. The taste has some nice malty sweetness mixed with the more dominant citrus hops like orange rind and grapefruit. The hop profile moves into more of a pineapple note approaching the finish. Nice IPA balanced between hops and malts, leaning more into hops.

22. Thanks, Foolish_mortal! Clear dark amber pour with towering fluffy white head and plenty of lace on the way down. Biggish and very sweet pine nose. A little bit of butter cream there, too. Medium body, nicely placed carb and gentle sweet flavors forward on the attack. There’s some butter there but it seems to be intentional; it gives the flavor some body and pleasant sweetness. Nice creosotey cling to the finish. Solid little IPA.

I got alot of pine in the aroma. A gold colored beer with nice bitterness in the form of grapefruit and pine. I like West Coast IPA’s and this one was decent.
