This one grew on me to a degree. At first I thought the palate was missing depth, but after a few more sips I realized it filled in the depth reasonably well. This isnít a great beer, but it is good. Aroma is dank. Color is a golden copper. It tastes of juicy tropical and citrus fruit, with a nice orange and citrus rind hops bitterness and a decent malt sweetness in the backbone. Not bad, really.

12oz bottle from TRT. Poured a deep honey amber with a smaller tight foamy super light beige head. Aroma started off all grainy malts but with some warmth notes of honey, careamel sweetness, and a hint of citrus rind. Flavor is brown bread, honey topped crust, earth. Sort of meh for an IPA but thatís Apollo hops for you.

Pours deep orange, nice cream head and lacing. Aroma is an earthy floral, spruce and a hint of tropical fruits; a little underwhelming. Taste is malty, some pineapple and somewhat doughy, moderate carbonation. Itís decent and Iíll finish the rest of them, but probably wouldnít purchase again.

Light amber, big soapy bubbles/foamy light head, good lace, no yeast pour. Low aroma, mineral, slight floral, big disappointment. Taste is medium light sweet toffee malts, some hop citrus, very slight fruit. Tastes like a malty ipa. I donít know which single hop ipa is more disappointing, I guess this one because it seems the yeast gives a soy sauce beef jerky vegetable thing to this beer, this one doesnít as Ive poured it off the yeast, yet there is next to no hop character. Moderate bitter, more of a neutral hop with a more malty than average character. I think their labels are kind of messy, their artistic expression is somewhat interesting but sloppy

Hazy dark orange to copper pour with a tree finger, creamy to chunky off white head. Aroma is bright citrus, big pine, guava, under ripe melon, light caramel, biscuit, bread, sweet grass and a hint of strawberry banana puree. Flavor is caramel, sweet cereal, biscuit, toffee, dull melon, bitter citrus, sharp resinous pine and a little passion fruit. Medium body, creamy to syrupy entry, syrupy to dry middle, medium sharp carbonation and dry finish with a decent hop acid bite. Good stuff overall, very piney without being to sharp, harsh, or dry.
