3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle; poured a murky amber color; big whitish head. Aroma of malty caramel, earth and yeast. Aroma was a bit bland. Touch of sweet vanilla in the finish and a bit too malty throughout. Touch of fruit and earthiness, some off putting dry yeastiness. Not great.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the brewery in Upland, CA. Clear amber orange pour. Decent lacing for once. Catty bright hop aroma..a tad sharp but nice. Taste is orange peel bitter, heavy nut shell bitter. Palate is dusty and again tannic. Gets overly harsh coupled with the heavy IBUs.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange pour with a slight haze and a white head. Sweet orange and tangerine hop aromas. A bit of pine, grass, and flowers. Some sweet bread and toffee notes, too. The flavor is on the sweet side for an IPA. Bready malt, grass, and some citrus peel. Mild pine bitterness, some floral notes, and some hints of soap.

(22oz bomber from Saarlander!). Pours a hazy orange-amber color with off-white head that leaves some sticky lacing. Aroma has some malt, resin and a bit of tropical notes. The taste is sweet with dried apricot coming through. Medium bodied and a creamy mouthfeel. Pretty decent and I’d be able to drink a couple pints of this in a sitting and be quite happy.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour from a bomber thanks to Tim. Golden and murky orange in color. Modest white head. The aromas were actually very nice with probably the dry hops of galaxy etc. Some good lemon, orange, grapefruit on the nose. Flavors were mildly bitter and balanced sweetness. Mouthfeel maybe on the thin side and a quick finish. A bit more of a bitter hop blast would have been nice. Overall pleasantly surprised.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber. Rating #3. Clear, dark brown/orange color with a nice white head and moderate lacing. Light hoppy aroma, but what aroma is there is big grapefruit, juicy grapefruit at that, very pleasant. Light bitterness with more sweet grapefruit and a mild aftertaste, pretty nice actually. (2066)
