3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 Sampled on draft at the Rivertowne Pub this beer poured a hazy bright yellow color with a large fluffy white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was tart, tangy, sweet and fruity and reminded me of gummi bears. The flavor was tart, tangy, a touch medicinal and fruity and again had a gummi bear element. Long finish and a bit astringent. Medium body. Odd.

Bottle poured to pint glass. Mostly clear golden yellow with a slight haze. Small off white head and a little lacing. Aroma is big pine resin, some citrus, and bread. Taste is pine, sour citrus, and more pine. Finish is very dry and full of pine resin. Decent IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a hazy copper-amber color with a good sized foamy white head with very good retention, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured strong pine hops notes, along with some straw and citrus hops and a bit of straw and grain. Its taste was fairly bitter with line, citrus, and grainy notes along with a very mild sour presence. It has a fairly bubbly and lively mouthfeel with a dry body and average carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - turbid gold - thick white lace - nose is pine and musky citrus fruit, melon - soft texture, medium-full body - clean, lightly sweet malts allow the hops to shine - fairly bitter and woody, and the citric notes are little pithy and cling to the tongue a bit too much, but overall enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Low lighting conditions but appears very light, creamy white head which persists nicely. Fruity pineapple aroma, quite mild. Mid bitterness, low body. Not much in malts but quite refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Dark gold color with a frothy white head. Pine, floral hops, spices, pepper, and a hint of malt in the aroma. Mostly pine hops to the taste fading to floral hops and a fairly bitter aftertaste. Good medium body and carbonation with a somewhat bubbly mouthfeel. Good, but just a bit too bitter for my liking.

On tap at Benjamin’s (5/10/16). Light spicy hops, pine resin and a little funk. Mild grain sweetness. Hazy pale amber with white lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Moderate sweet start, nice hop flavor throughout with pine and tropical fruit. A little diacetyl, with hoppy bitter after.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hoppy, resiney nose maybe a little sweetness. Hazy golden pour with thick, white head. Strong piney hop profile, slightly tempered by some biscuity malts. Touches of dryness, but hoppy overall. The citrus never quite came through. Well balanced overall. It does not try to knock one’s socks off with its hops.
