2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Happy Gnome. Murky gold-orange pour with a spotty head. Getting some citrus and resin in here, but also some soap. Kind of a strange bitterness midway back on the tongue. Not my favorite.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from ck1, thanks bro! Pours a coppery amber with a bit of a white head. Some streaky lacing. Aroma has fresh fruits, citrus and pine, with some earthiness and some caramel. Taste is of tangy pine, some grapefruit, some mango and a solid caramel malt backbone. Tangy and somewhat fruity with a medium body, it finishes slightly more bitter than sweet, with a blend of the two. Shrug? Maybe the worst of the Falconer/Cascade/Apollo group - ok drinker and a decent hop-forward IPA, but a bit blah.13.5

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This pours a hazy, copper-orange color with a slight head. The aroma is weak with hints of malts and hops. The taste is very interesting with flavor. The texture is smooth and easy drinking, but the flavors erupt with strength and bitterness.

Pour is orange/yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit juice, light pine resin, citrus peel, and mild bitterness. Flavor is pine oil, light citrus, faint hops, and slight caramel sweetness. Very mild for the ABV, somewhat lacking.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy copper-yellow, with thick hard. Aroma is marked by a fairly strong citrus presence, along with piney hops. Flavor is bitter, astringent, citrusy, with a fair amount of underlying sweetness. This might be my favorite of their single-hop series. Very good.
