3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange color. Inviting aroma of hops, citrus fruit, and grass. It?s a hoppy beer but well balanced and it has a defined malt flavor to it as well. Or maybe it is earthy hops and strong medium body. This is very drinkable, crisp, and refreshing. It had a certain x factor that made it stand out from other above average ipas.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice hazy amber with a big, frothy white head. Aroma of pine, lemon zest, cereal, grapefruit, more resiny pine, light brown sugar. Taste starts out moderately sweet, turning into a medium, dry hop bitterness. The dry, bitter finish brings back grapefruit and pine. Medium, slender body with an oily feel. Medium carbonation.
Had this a few times after I encountered it by accident at Brot & Spiele Graz (itís not always available). All four bottles I have had across Europe varied for a bit. When itís fresh, the hops really shine. While the malt backbone is pretty lean, it still backs up the hops with a toasty malt aroma and feeling in terms of body. When itís not that fresh anymore, the hops fade into the malt body - itís less crisp than expected, but still super dry. Really good IPA, can be a bit harsh. But I always enjoyed it quite a bit. Maybe because itís so hard to get around here.

Bottle shared. Nice juicy fruitiness, decent malt backbone, fairly classic stuff yet solid ipa. A bit too simple maybe in this new era of galactic whales and unicorns.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle from SC with a bottling date of Jan. 2016.
Hazy copper body with an over-sized,fluffy off-white head. Exceptional retention and lacing. Some sediment stuck on the bottom of the bottle.
Mildly hoppy aroma, likely subdued by the thick head. Moderately strong flavor with medium-high bitterness for style.
Good mouthfeel excepting for some mile hops-alcohol harshness.

Bottle shared. Thanks Gregg! Light flavors on the nose, caramel, maybe some faint pine. Clean and well-balanced. Very malty with a touch of citrus on the palate. Some light cocoa towards the end. Nice old school IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy amber, not much foam. Aroma is sweetish, malty base with a decent hop kick. This is highly drinkable, malty IPA. Lingering dry bitterness in the finish. Stuff you drink by the pints.

Medium dark amber color. The nose is fairly muted with some managoes and citrus notes. Medium body. Modest bitterness, but actually not that interesting.

Good IPA. Had at the brewery and was not disappointed. Good mix of hops give this a taste that falls between the citrus and pine zone.
