4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear darkish gold pour with a 2 finger, creamy off white head. Awesome citrus, floral and tropical fruit nose, some toast, caramel and biscuit, but the hops really own the aroma. Flavor is tropical fruit, citrus and berry fruit, some spicy acidic hop bite, toast, biscuit, light, but sweet caramel, floral honey, a hint of lemon and bubble gum. Light to medium bodied with a creamy, oily feel until the somewhat dry, acidic hop dry finish. Fantastic, the best new (to me) IPA I have had in a long time.

500mL bottle. Clear orange with lively carbonation and small head. Floral hops dominate the aroma, with some pine and some light malt. Fairly dry and bitter, with something strange going on with the aftertaste - metallic and a bit astringent. Otherwise good.

Pours clear amber with big off-white head. Very nice lookout. Aroma is very fresh, tons of tropical fruits, some sweet floral notes, honey, sour citrus, fresh pine, biscuit. Taste is soft spruce, pineapple, orange peel, sweet resin, creamy, sweet fruits, young pine. After taste is quite bitter, but sweet pine and tropical fruit notes will continue to the end. Excellent beer!
