3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint size can served in a FFF pint glass. Purchased at a local Binny’s. Canned within a week or two.
A: Pours a clear amber color with a finger of pure white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to thick ring. Some soapy lace is left behind.
S: Mostly bitter pine with some light grassy notes a slightly sweet malty body.
T: Very bitter hops up front. It does mix with the sweetness of the malts for the beginning, but the malt body fades quickly and you’re left with raw hop bitterness, some grass and light pine needle flavor.
M: Medium bodied with lower than average carbonation. It not the best going down, but it does have a lightness on the finish. The hops just really attack palate.
O: This was pretty run of the mill, the body of the beer being slightly imbalanced and dominated by more of a bitter and pine hop presence in a raw form. I would definitely pass over this for other beers and if I need I cans I’ve got Daisy Cutter at my disposal for $2 less for a four pack.
Serving type: can

16 oz can. Pours a massive head with a little bit of gunky orange liquid underneath. Lots of chunky things are swimming around in there. Aromas are mostly citrusy. Oranges and grainy caramel. Flavor is sharply bitter with more of a lemon peel hoppiness to it. There is a creamy mouthfeel that seems a little odd.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz can - Nice floral hops aroma. A bit too grainy on the tongue for me. It seems a little malt-heavy. OK beer. I was recommended this one by a Chicago beer-lover, so I was expecting to like it a bit more than I did.

Can poured into a pint..nice color..aroma is a bit lacking..pleasant bitter finish with a small hop presence..good..comes across as quite fresh which is a plus and has a solid mouthfeel..almost creamy finish..a decent single ipa..Not getting much of the citrus from the profile

Can. Pours a yellowish orange color with a soapy, slightly off white head. Aroma is sweet, pineapple, banana, and floral hops. Flavor is fruity and floral, more floral and sweet than bitter. Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation. Overall a good beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden/lt amber with a medium white head. Aroma has some mango and caramely sweetness. Flavor follows suit...too malty for my taste in IPAs. Mouthfeel is medium/full with an earthy caramel/bitter finish.
