Fresh fruity hop aroma, deep amber color beer, first taste is sharp and slightly acidic with a smooth and slightly estery finish. Hops are still the star of the show. Medium to high body. Overall a very good beer.

Smooth hop aromas blend into something special here. Good drinking core IPA. I look forward to more distribution of this group. Edit: please take the time to upturn your bottle and gently dislodge the yeast sediment that had accumulated on the bottom of the bottle, this really defines my experience.

Bottle, 6.5%. Orange, Hazy. Caramels, pine and citrus on nose. Pretty archetypic US IPA character. Some butterscotch, the bitterness almost felt in the nose already. Med-full body. Caramel sweets, bit hard, but good, bitters leaving a clean palate. Grapefruit, some leafyness. Feels like the hops could have been a whole lot more explosive if fresher (can’t find a bbe though..). Nice, stereotypical US IPA. Green grapefruit piny hops, caramel body. Clean yeast.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a SA Perfect Pint showing a very deep brown with a finger of white foam. There’s quite a lot of yeast inside the beer.
The nose shows pineapple, pine, and hints of cannabis.
The palate is full bodied with light carbonation. The first impression shows a burst of refreshing citrus flavors such as grapefruit and lemon zest. The finish shows a slight IPA bitterness. The citrus flavors on this beer really stand out and makes for a really nice IPA.
