3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at bottle share at Syb Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Snifter. Pours gold with haze and a white head. Decent lacing. Pine resin and light citrus on the nose. Some leather and grass as well. Taste is primarily pine and fresh cut grass. Smells a little like a bag of weed. Sort of a musty, hop taste. Bitter finish. medium body. Carbonated. Rather dry.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice golden with a reddish hue. Aroma is citrusy, very hoppy. This is a total hop bomb, with a ton of fresh citra flavor. Despite packing a wallop in hops, bitterness is not overpowering at all. A tiny sweetness on finish, and the floral, lemony hops just linger. Awesome, and distinctive, which is hard to do in the IPA category.

Great hop aroma - light fruits and perfume - but even better hop flavor. Plenty of malty backbone on top of those juicy hops almost makes it too sweet; I’d like a bit more bitters for the finish. Still an excellent choice among IPAs.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, Moderate orangey hops, light soap and cheese for the yeast, with dried fruit in the background. Head is small, frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear copper. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finshes lightly sweet, acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, oily, with a lively carbonation and a bit of a saccharin aftertaste. Super orange juice like hops in this unique and super tasty IPA.

Tap @ Yard House. The looks and smell of this had me really anticipating. Nice copper color with decent head and lacing. Wonderful boxwood and pith aroma. But the flavor did not live up to it- I almost wonder if the tap lines were dirty. Just sort of moderately bitter with a light hop finish.
