3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Mom. Golden brown/dark orange hue with mostly diminishing white fizzy head. Good lacing. Citrus hop and malt aromas. Light bitter orange hop and malt up front with more of a malt finish. I thought this was a straight forward very drinkable IPA. Three went down just fine.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from a collaboration Adventure Pack. Pours a a clean golden orange with a small off white head. Nice scent of pine, resin, and hops. Pine, resin, and hop bitterness with a little grapefruit taste. A little flat, but has a creamy smooth finish. Nice effort, but their lagers are so much better.

Very solid IPA, I like anything that this brewery does. Not much on the aroma, you pick up the hops with a solid malt backbone. Finishes nicely on the palate.

On tap at Brasserie Brightwell in Easton, MD. Dull hop aroma, stale hop flavor, vaguely sweet malts, dry. This wasn’t very good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty good; nothing over the top or exceptional. Aroma is mostly pine with some citrus notes. Taste is pine with some hidden hop character. Finish is a bit bitter with a great malt backbone to back up the hops. Nice job.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From Nate as part of a Christmas gift sampler. Clear amber golden with a smallish head. A pine and citrus is not big but is pretty nice. First sip is quite bitter. Spicy bitterness more than grapefruit. But grapefruit is in here and grows with warming. There is some herbal and resin aspect to them that is akin to unripened fruit. Biscuits. I would like to see more complexity in the hops and less IBUs. Its close to being very good.

Slightly roasty, dry with a bitter hops finish. A bit deeper and darker than I expected.
