3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Canal,s in Lawrenceville, NJ. Clear light chestnut pour supporting a medium stone white head. Big pine resin and citrus zest aroma. Floral, citrusy hops up front reminiscent of a West Coast IPA. Toffee, semisweet chocolate and a hint of white pepper come to party as it warms a bit. Nice silky texture and a crisp, wonderfully bitter and dry finish. Really nicely balanced IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can thanks to nimbleprop. Pours a densely hazy copper with a big white head of foam. Splotchy lacing. The aroma has notes of grapefruit and some lighter grassy notes. The taste is more on the sweeter side with what I would call an herbal, grapefruity bitterness kicking in about mid-palate. Dries out in the finish to leave a mild bitterness lingering on the tongue.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 can The IPA poured a cloudy light amber with a huge frothy head with no lacing. Your nose detects citrus and pine resin immediately. The ale has a very balanced bitterness that fills your mouth. The medium body ale had average carbonation. There’s a warm spicy flavor to the palate, while pine and resinous -citrus flavors linger through the long finish. If you enjoy the hoppy beers this will be a hit.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours hazy amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of hops with bitter, citric and grassy flavour with subtle touches of malt and fruit. Grainy onset, giving way to hoppy notes that pretty much dominaye the experience. Occasional touches of malt. OK but the presence of raw malt is too intrusive.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at RedRocks (DC). Mild sitcky sweet nose, with floral-spicy hop character, semi-fresh. Dark coppery amber clear with light haze, topped with thin off-white creamy lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation and carbonic bite. Starts somewhat sweet but big dryness simultaneously comes after as a big hit of hop bitterness descends on the tongue. Hoppy and spicy with lots of resin, big bitter finish and dry bitter after.
