3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Tin Bucket
A: Gold color, white head, lacing.
N: Pineapple, grapefruit, mango, pine, earth, and a bit of hemp.
T: Good bitterness, underpinning sweetness.
M: Creamy carbonation, resinous medium body, no alcohol presence.
O: Good IPA. Nose vastly outshines the taste, and this is less dry than I would expect for a west coast IPA, but it’s better than I expected as well.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent gold with a creamy/foamy white head. Aroma is rather tropical fruit with hints of slightly roasty malt and something suggesting creme brulee. Near full bodied. Flavor is suggestive of mango and pineapple, and citrus, with a lot of hop florality and some decent caramel support. Rather laid back in intensity of flavors, but not so with respect to bitterness. A nice finish with floral hop bitter that tingles!
