3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at the brewpub. It pours golden orange and a shade lighter than their British IPA with an off white head. The aroma is a nice combination of tropical and citrus hops. The flavor is the same with more emphasis on citrus. The finish is very bitter, dry, and grassy. Nice lacing on the glass and good body/carbonation. I’m impressed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap: orange/amber with medium white head, abv: 7.0. Aroma is citrus and pine hop with a toasted bread malt nose. Flavor is mostly citrus orange/grapefruit with a little pine hop bitter, toasted malt and a nice dry bitter to finish. Palate is slightly sweet with a dry bitter carrying to the end and a malty not too thick mouth feel. This beer is pretty easy drinking for a heavier IPA. I will be drinking much more.
