4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a one finger white head. Abundant carbonation allows a rocky head to be maintained nearly throughout the entire drink with tons of rocky lacing clinging to the glass.
Aroma just screams west coast IPA. Tons and tons of citrus from the hops and is very "in your face." Pineapple, mango, and tangerine along with a solid bready malt base. Really a mouthwatering aroma.
All of these wonderful characteristics continue over into the flavor. Tropical fruit immediately that just seems to spread across the mouth. There is a very juicy quality that I just love. Some light bread provides just enough malt to keep the hops balanced. High bitterness but not to the point of being overbearing or unpleasant. Mouthfeel is on the sticky and chalky side which I am not crazy about but it is a small price to pay.
Overall, an absolutely amazing IPA out of Ohio that rivals the best coming out of California. I am so happy I found this beer and plan on picking up many more before heading back to TN.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Golden hue with fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is orange, melon, pine, citrus oil, grassy, straw. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a nice bitterness that extends into the finish. Overall this is a nice IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong pine hop aroma. Gold, clear appearance with a white head. Flavor is full of piney hops and slight caramel. Bitterness is clean. Body is medium light and carbonation is medium. Overall it's a great tasting clean ipa. If you enjoy piney hops you will enjoy this beer.

Not really a piney hop ipa fan, but I do have to say this one is enjoyable. Not good enough that I would buy it again but I can finish a bottle at the least

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Love this. Lots of hops but west coast citrus makes it not too bitter. 87 ibu and only 7.5abv is pretty impressive. Hop heads will love it too but definitely not a starter for newbies.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is so good..like nuts good. The aroma blew me away. I immediately got tons of like white grape juice. I have no clue why but white grape juice just hit me in the face. Then some peach and pineapple juice. Different than most of the IPA’s I have. Taste is perfect. Just super fresh like fruit juice with some intense bitterness just awesome stuff, highly recommend it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle at Gateway Grill in Monroeville, PA. Orange-gold with a small but very sturdy white head. The aroma is all resun and pineapple. The flavour brings more diverse citrus notes, such as mandarin, to go with the aforementioned flavours. Theflavour is big and hits you iimmediately. The hopping is done to perfestion, with the bitterness hitting right after the flavours have established themselves, and lingering through the finish. There is enough malt to keep the hps from being overwhelming. A very well constructed beer.

Bottle, from my Summer Secret Santa. Golden pour with a slushy looking white head. Smells really good, lots of piney hops. A great beer I didn’t know existed until yesterday. Thanks to my Secret Santa!
