3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from VE, best by 07/27/16. Nose earth and caramel, does have grapefruit sweetness and a hint of wood and dank. Pour deep but clear golden, leaning over amber into lightest brown, big rock and lacing beige head. Taste medium bitter with light sweetness that accumulates to medium big caramel and heavy cracker, touch dusty, grapefruit and really fresh/natural juiciness, some dank and woodsy character, Nugget all over this, and the nice dark toffee and bark of Northern Brewer. Fullish body, a little slimy but thatís ameliorated by swishy malt depth. Very light hints of astringency and aspartame. Represents something of an alternate universe where IPAs took a different path; interesting to try, but probably a one-time-only thing for me. [2016.08.07: 3.3]

Pours clear copper, relatively sustained frothy white head. Slight resin aroma, a hint of moss. Lots of flavor... starts pine resin, evolves into a tropical profile, with trace of sweetness, with a long dry finish. Palate is particularly nice, having a rich texture at the center. Enjoyable, straightforward, some notable flavor combinations, no complaints,
