3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Belmont (from notes). Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor is mildly hoppy with an equal amount of malt. I get quite a bit of fruit and resin with caramel malt, buttery toffee, and sugar cookies. The finish has some resiny bitterness. Many better examples floating around out there.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Well doesn’t taste west coast style but still not bad. Orange in color, big thick head, and high carbonation. Very floral in taste with some pine. Not strong in bitterness but ABV is well hidden. Not too shabby.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy darker orange pour, medium head. Smells.. A mix of fruits..typical hints of ipa grapefruit in the hops, but also quite floral and candy like. Tastes..A combination of fruity and floral hops, some spice hints, and definite caramel malts flavours too. Different, but a good ipa
