Doesn’t smell floral hoppy, but looks good. A nice cloudy orange-red. Has a very dry bitter bite Quite nice, but certainly not a session IPA.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Albertson’s. Easily noticeable citrusy aroma. Light beige head. Strong, musky hoppiness that gradually rolls away nicely. Bready aftertaste with that distinct slightly thick feeling left in the back of the throat. I like it alot.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy amber, thin off white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, sweet, light malt and a little alcohol. The taste has a little bit of everything, nice malt, sweet berry hops, citrus, pine and nice bitter finish. Nothing is overwhelming, bitterness does linger a little bit. This is a decent middle of the road IPA.

A wonderfully hopped IPA which stands alone (or lies alone) without food accompaniment.
Wonderful rich amber color and smooth pour, but without enough head. rich citrusy notes and crisp finish.Ummmm

Hazy amber color,small off white head that had a decent hangtime then faded slowly to leave a slight lace behind.The aroma was hoppy with a nice citrus side and some notes of pine and light malt.The flavor was pretty good,light malty side some grapefruit a bit of caramel and a hint of pine notes to go along with all the hops.Very nice brew,not as good as the avery i just had but decent enough for another go around.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a medium head that leaves some decent lacing. Super hoppy aroma with notes of citrus and pine. Taste is dominated by bitter hops, a little caramel. White grapefruit flavors and finish give it a bit of harshness that I’m not particularly into, as I’m more apt to throw the things at people than eat them. I’d have liked a little more sweetness to balance it out, but decent overall.

(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 30 Sep) Dark amber colour with small head. Fruity nose with powerful hoppy aromas, notes of grapefruit, pine needles and resin. Fruity, seriously hoppy, taste with grapefruit, pine needles, resin and harsh earthy hop flavours in the finish. Starts sweet, turns drier towards the finish, medium body. Very hoppy and very nice.
