3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle. A nice cloudy golden body with a white head that seemed to have good retention and great lace. Aroma had a nice mix of yeast and hops. Nice doughy and estery notes a little bit of banana. Hops seemed to have a blend of floral, grapefruit and a mild bit of pine. Flavor seemed to have great balance with hops and yeast, malts seemed slightly toasted and they took a back seat to the other flavors. Nice in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
10 karat brew with ample carbonation and a nice ivory cap. Hay, grassiness, lemony funk, bright citrus, and yeast. Medium mouthfeel. Refreshing for a hot Arizona summer day but nothing that I’d feel the need to return to.

750ml, batch 15, bottle pours a hazy orange with some clumpy, lacing white head. Nose has a fair amount of soap, orange peel, some dusty hay, a little old couch. Flavor is soapy, astringent citrus peel, straw, a little herbal tea. Tannic, astringent finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Poured a hazy yellow/gold with a bubbly 2 finger head that doesn’t want to settle down for a while. Funky aroma with a lot going on. You got typical IPA scents of citrus and grass, then some yeast, then some nice barnyard funk. Flavor is fruity, but not really citrus, more like white fruits. Pears and apples. Some lemon zest in here too. Secondary spice, white pepper? Still with some funkiness. Light bodied with aggressive carbonation. Easy to drink and fun.
