3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Capitol Tap Room. Rich flavor and full bodied hop flavor but kind of a dusty finish. Aroma is a bit sour but complex taste array makes up for it.

Poured a finger and half of head on a clear, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is lemon, apricot and grapefruit. Nice combination.
The taste has a sharp pine bitterness throughout with a touch of honey and a biting pine bitter finish.
The texture is soft with a low to moderate carbonation.
Quite good and enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Tap 25. It pours a clear golden orange with an off white head. The aroma is spicy, citrus with a decent dose of caramel malt. The flavor is potent spicy, onion, lime, sweet caramel and noticeable alcohol. Big bitter finish. It’s kind of an old school IIPA, but clean and well brewed. I really dig these guys.
