3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is almost a vegetable smell, but heavily smells of a delicious hop stage of wart. Appearance is nice, a hazy golden orange with a white head. Taste is unique and complex. Fruit, earthy hops, citrus, and many subtle hop levels. Medium body. Resinous slick texture. Soft hint of carbonation with a long and tasty finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big thanks to Popkas for sending this bottle out my way. Served in a Captain Lawrence tulip.
Pours a nice orange color with a pretty hefty white head that stuck around for quite a bit before falling and leaving some sticky lacing behind. The nose was mostly floral with a bit of citrus creeping in. Hops, that is. Mild malt character in the background. The flavor was pretty similar. The floral hop notes tended to dominate with a bit of orange rind in the background. I’ll same marmalade; I know some people like those descriptive terms. Body was light to medium with a really nice dry, bitter finish. A good beer that I’d certainly have again.

Probably the only decent beer worth drinking from this brewery. Citrus hops everywhere. Pretty well balanced. An above average IIPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
crisp citrus and sharp pine aroma with some peach and fruity hop background, smells awesome complimented well with a sweet caramel smell, overall aroma is wonderfully balanced one I would liken to a stone brew, appearance is a dark golden bordering on orange, first taste starts bitter and smooths into a citrusy piny taste, then finishes with grass hop flavor and relatively dry, overall a double IPA that is just as respectable as any of the bigger breweries imperial IPAs

Pours hazy orange with off white head, aroma has notes of pine, resin, some citrus, and big caramel. Taste is pine, citrus, resin with notes of sweet caramel, finishing fairly bitter. Alcohol comes through in the exhale, but only slightly.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle provided by Alex, drank from a perfect pint glass... A medium clear copper with off white head. Quick riser in this glass but falls to fast to thin cap, ok lacing... The taste and aroma on this are both slightly above average dipa. There is nothing special about this except its very crushable at 9%, don’t taste any of the alcohol. Notes of grapefruit, a little dank, and some pine. Not bad at, just nothing crazy.
I’d drink this again but I wouldn’t trade for it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy and golden orange in color. The aroma has floral and strong citrus notes from American hops. The mouth-feel is medium and could be describe as just shy of refreshing. Noticeably hoppy and bitter although not to the level of an imperial IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy medium golden with a nice white head. Aroma is floral hops. This beer is pretty hoppy, but also has a nice creamy texture and a bit of sweetness. This beer is by no means crisp in the mouth so it might be a bit hard to drink on a hot day, but the smooth creamy texture works for it. If you are an IPA fan this one is worth trying.
