3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Psychedelic label, man.
A: Semi-clear gold color with a fluffy, foamy white head.
N: Huge grapefruit, orange, and onion nose. (The onion is not overwhelming fortunately.) Biscuit, pine, and leaf act as undertones. Hints of mango and cheddar cheese.
T: Bitter, sweet, and fruity. Some onion tanginess shows up here, as well. Pretty good balance here. Malt holds up the hops nicely.
M: Dry and resinous. Medium body. Touch of alcohol.
O: This is tasty beast. There are enough citrusy hop notes with enough unique elements (the onion doesn’t detract). Definitely one of the better single IPAs I’ve had. Good show.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Pizza Plant. Hazy orange brown. Just a thin ring of head. The nose hits the hop triumvitate - floral, citrus and pine. Lots of bitterness in the flavour. Hops are mostly floral, with mild sweet citrus. Really solid IPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tropical fruit aroma sets this apart from many others. Medium amber in color with a nice foam. Flavor is robust with fruits, alcohol, and biscuity malts. Finish is initially sweet, but the hops continue through. Maybe continue too long.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, thanks to Mike L. for sharing! Almost entirely hazy golden orange color. Thin ring of off-white head, kind of bubbly. Some bits of lace. Nice bright tropical fruit and citrus aroma. Light bit of pine, resin. More of a pale malt malt bill, bready, lightly crackery. Mostly just a dry, bright hoppy flavor. Tropical fruit. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. More zesty taste. Lighter sweet, more dry finish. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Dry finish. Solid, enjoyable, tasty IPA.

Dull gold, aroma is mosiac tropical fruits, some melon and grapefruit. Bitter front, some chewier malts kick in, there’s some alcoholic muscle, nice fresh hop character.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle (650ml)] Pours a clear deep gold with an average size long-lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of bready malt, citrusy and fruity hops and finally a touch of spice. Flavour’s the same, bready, citrusy, fruity and hoppy with a long bitter finish. A hint of alcohol present. Medium bodied. Not great but pretty good indeed.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle from Fred Meyers store in S.Salem
POurs a clear copper/orange coloured ale with a large bubbly/rocky white head.
Wow mouth watering hoppy aromas spring right out at the first sniff!
Fruity,lemony zesty spice hoppiness!
Taste is more balanced with the caramel type malt making a go of it but the zesty lemon drop hops still shine!
Medium mouth feel low carbonation easy going down
Nice easy drinking IPA..i think one fo the Fall.
