4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
From the bomber, it pours a beautiful golden copper and yields the same color body. A great two inch foamy white head appears and lasts for at least a good two minutes. There is some spider web lacing speckling the sides of the glass. The smell has a good complexity of hops and malts, some sweet, some bitter, and some spicy. The taste has a peppery yet piney sort of flavor that to me that I really like. The palate is superb as it is not watery nor is it sharp, a perfect feel on the tongue. Overall, I was not expecting this IPA to be this good, but this is really awesome.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at source. Pours honey golden, white frothy head. Aroma is earthy pine, sweet tropical fruits, really nice. Flavor is, as the brewery says, Orchard fruit. Almost like orange, tangerine, and cantaloupe and apple maybe? Or pear. It?s different but good. Really solid. Maybe a bit of caramel malt is throwing it off. But it?s good.
