2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s some what hard to write this review because once upon a time this beer was outstanding. I’ve followed it since it was first released and seen it morph into something that lacks the beautiful qualities it once had. Bummer, it’s just a basic hoppy redish beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a nice cloudy copper, big off white head that left lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruits, floral hops and some malts. Kind of a tropical taste, actually quite sweet and fruity for an IPA (not in a bad way), very nicely balanced with the bitterness of the hops. Interesting beer, very enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours two and half fingers of head on a hazy dark straw colored body.
The aroma is mostly pine with some orange.
The taste has a malty start with moderate pine and lemon bitterness quickly following.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Stunning copper pour. Great clarity, bright color, and a modest tan head with even sheet lacing. A perfect 5 for appearance, no doubt about it. Lively aroma of resin and fruity hops. Plenty of citrus. The taste is more herbal and floral than expected, but still a little resin to boot. Caramel malt. Has a little of the subdued organic vibe that detracts from the intensity of the brew. Not like it’s watered down, more like running at 75% strength. Overall it’s good, but could have pushed beyond very good with more flavor impact.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
New release, second time I’ve had it. Thought it was good first time. Unknown bottle date.
Pours a golden on amber ale with some soapy white foam that falls to pocks of the same. A little hazy. Smells of limes, celery, b.o., some resin. Nice smell from the hops. Taste is sweet with a little catty flavor and some sweetness on the back end that reminds me of papaya. This was a bit better previously than last time, but good nonetheless. Medium bodied with lighter carb and a semi dry finish. Good beer, would like to see on draft regularly.

Pretty good IPA and neat label too. Deep orange pour. Slightly peaty aroma, but still a lot of fruit and pine. An especially sweet IPA lots of mango, orange, lemon, and other tropical goodness. There is a kick too – more floral than bitter. Pretty bubbly mouthfeel.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Hazy orange amber, lively off white head. Juicy hop profile, sweet tropical fruit with resinous notes. Bright and tasty, moderately bitter. Really good.
