3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This does not have much smell. I was a smoker for a decade and it killed my taste and smell buds (most of taste is actually olfactory). This smells of molasses a tad. Tastes of weird grape/fruityness whose scope of flavor is beyond that of my descriptors. looks good, typical IPA, but a little darker golden than some. Had no head but a slight effervescent retainer on top of white. Not my fav beer. Might even turn it down if offered at a social gathering.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a beast of an IPA, so much so that it might as well be a really hoppy American Strong Ale. Boozy, bitter, tropical fruits, syrupy sweet malt backbone. The grapefruit aroma is the most pronounced. It’s a sipper.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
No date on bottle. Pours a golden amber with a thin white, tight head. Lots if sediment floating ( not expected ). Aroma is pine and a little sweet resin. Definitely alcohol esters. Flavor is more of a Barleywine. Might have some age which is skewing my rating. Some pine and citrus are present but mostly aged maltiness. Not terrible, but too much alcohol for the amount of hops.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours rich hazy copper color with off white head. Aroma is citrus with pineapple and pine. Thick syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor starts out with sweet fruity malt and citrus followed by pineapple and finishing with a thick pine resin. Some lingering bitterness and mouth left tingling.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I dunno I can see through this one. As in what it aspires to be.
Yet this beer is tier 2 in IPAs for me.
Straight forward and to the point.
Light foam goes quickly. Fresh hop aroma. Golden colored.

Share by Pinkzambia A big sharp IPA. Hazy golden and a big mostly piney aroma and flavor. Dry and a bit hash. Definitely a double

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Clear gold color with a small head. Alcohol and rubber aroma followed by a great flavor of sweetness and a bitter trailer. A bit musty . . . has the potential to blow you away but stops short.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Slightly hazy golden color, medium white head. Aroma of grass, pine. Taste is malt forward with bitter lemongrass. Not sure why this needs such a high abv.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange color with low fizzy head. Surprised the nose is so light given the massive hoppy flavor that smacks your taste buds immediately. There is a fair amount of alcohol to support the hops but not enough malt. This is one dimensional to an extreme which can have its place.
