4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an orange/amber colour. Medium off white head to it. Aroma has some orange citrus and spice to it. Malty taste with some slight peppery notes. Good IPA but not as hoppy as I had anticipated.

Bottle. Pours a good looking reddish amber. Great frothy off-white head. Lasting with lots of lace. Topical. Caramel. Some earthiness. Some citrus. Kind of Englishy. Fruitier as it warms. Sometimes it seems great and sometimes it seems blah. Good drinkability. Interesting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle pours copper with good foam head. Aroma is piney and herbal. Taste is the same with spicy, bitter hop flavor with long bitter finish. A little sticky and dank. Not balanced and not my favorite IPA.

Super bitter, light malt & hop flavors & aroma. Maybe old sample, but poor IPA balance.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep orange amber with large off white head. Pine and floral hops with some mango and grapefruit. A good sweet caramel malt base leads to excellent grapefruit and pine resin bitterness. Medium creamy mouth with average carbonation leading to a long finish where the sweet malts makes another appearance. Nicely balanced IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A pretty good little fucker. Chestnut with an ivory head, like it matters! A bit darker than the average India. A pretty solid example of the style, no frills really, just a well balanced potion with neither malts nor hops winning the ongoing war.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good beer, does not live up to the label’s claim of intense hops. Smooth IPA, worth a try, but not an incredibly hoppy one.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy orange color with a thick white head that sticks around. Aroma is tropical fruit, a little breadiness. Taste is piney, slightly peppery, some fruit in the background and finishes with a nice fading bitterness. Medium mouth feel. This beer is prettt great; a little different than the average IPA but definitely in a good way.
