3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from trade. Been wanting to try this one for a while now. Pours a beautiful clear amber red with a one finger off white and very creamy head. Looks like an amber. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, floral bouquets, some other orange citrus rind too. Flavor had a nice caramel and bready malt presence, a nice bit of bitter pine, some citrus character. Insanely drinkable and very nice, leaning more toward the APA style than IPA. Light to medium bodied, slightly resinous, with medium plus carbonation. A really nice every day type of beer that I would love to have available locally.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a light golden color with a ridiculous, frothy head that does not want to go away and leaves thick lacing the entire way down the glass
Aroma is delicate hops with a stale hop aroma
Flavor is a burst of stale full leaf hops with a slight resinous aftertaste. Sticky mouthfeel holds resinous aftertaste on tongue.

Big grape fruity nose with a carmelly malt background . Pine resins with a crystal malt balance. Big MSG
T to balance a butt load of C level hops.. Cascades.. Centennials etc. bread like yeast character. Overall a bug hoppy, and well balanced ipa that is definitely among my favourites.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A ruddy clear amber color, good carbonation, with beautiful dense, substantial white head. Clean rain fresh aroma along with the traditional citrus. An above average citrus hop bite with a lasting finish. Well balanced yet the bitterness is dominant and pleasant. Distinctive yet drinkable.
