3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Clearish honey gold with a nice three finger off white head. Tat work lacing. The aroma is classic west coast hops but is not quite a prominent as some. The flavor is pretty much the same. Big complex fruit with citrus that includes grapefruit, pine, and tropical. A resiny feel is slick but smooth. Some floral and honey notes. It became sugary at the finish. This is an enjoyable and tasty beer. But for an 8% ABV beer I kept hoping it would go BANG on the flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured clear copper. White head. Pine, citrus, and floral hop nose. Medium body. Very resinous mouth feel. Flavor is a lot of hops with pine strong, then the citrus and floral. The finish is very pine bitter. Overall classic west coast IPA. A little alcohol shows up at the end as well along with some earth. Could have done without that alcohol showing up but generally a good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy amber orange with an off-white head and moderate lace. Piney hops intrude on a base of caramel malt with some citrus and grassy notes. Bitterness rules in the flavor profile, with generous pine and citrus hops, caramel malt and a hint of alcohol. Full body, medium carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a lingering caramel in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
GABF 2015. On cask, with citra. Cloudy orange color and white head. Aroma is dry hops, flavor more hops, dry, malt takes a back seat but the palate is thick and I expected more malt presence. Solid. I think it benefited from cask.

Very hazy deep amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy and has a fine crispness. Sweetish malts, trace of lactose, mild malt cream. Hops bring tangerine and tangerine peel. Mild crystallised fruits. Hop spice and modest floral bitterness. Tangy finish leads to a bitter linger. Decent.
