3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a six pack I received as a gift from my friend Kate. 12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber with a moderate white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of mostly grapefruit with notes of tangerine and malt. The flavor is malt with a bit of caramel followed by dry hops bitterness that is a combination of pith and grapefruit. Medium bodied.

Pint at Tyler’s Apex. Good aroma sweet. Bitter. Strong n the grapefruit, though has a malty streak about it. Clean brownish orange color, good head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. It’s good, solid IPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice, straightforward IPA, with nice tropical aroma, and citrus flavors. The finish is very piny and perhaps a little too hair-spray-bitter for my liking. However, other than that, it is a nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from GBBF 2015 and drunk at home. Slight haze amber lasting ivory coloured head. Grapefruity hoppy aroma with a touch of caramel. It’s a pretty decent American IPA to be honest. Some pink grapefruit, some bitterness, not overly sweet, some bitterness, fresh tasty and I rather liked it.
