3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle via trade with fletche00, thanks Zach. Poured a good looking clear rusty orange body with a smaller sized frothy mostly white head. Aroma has a little bit of all the different hop typres going on, lots of cat piss, some dried out old citrus rinds, older pine needles, dirty earth and some hop resin too. Nice palate with a medium mouthfeel that is dry with a lingering aftertaste and average carbonation. Flavor is similar to the aroma but the cat piss is played down with the earthiness picking up, the rest is rounded out by old citrus rind and some rather old pine needles along with old citrus meat, especially yellow grapefruit, along with older hop leaves. Solid beer.

Good IPA, but there are many I like better(even locally). I'd buy again, if the price was reasonable. Everything about it is great at the beginning, but it doesn't finish well...

Gross. Smells like weed, and to be honest it pretty much tastes like eating weed. I don’t know what the hype is with this beer. I love IPAs but this is crap.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is sweet and citric with some dank and piney notes though plenty of caramel and biscuit. Flavor has a lot of sweetness, some orange marmalade with a bit of pine and herbal notes before a bitter finish. Medium body and sharp carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ar: Lots of resin, very pure hop aroma - pine, lemon, and mint.
Ap: Light amber, crystal clear - medium-large white head with great retention and a meringue cap of foam.
T: Bright burst of hop flavor up front, character is lemon, pine, moss, and mint - high and very pointed bitterness, very clean and direct - a background clean malty sweetness with a touch of caramel - lemon and pine hop flavor in the finish.
P: Medium body, high carbonation - finish is dry.
O: Wow, what wonderful IPA - it just shouts "freshness," with lots of hop flavor and aroma and a real punch of clean bitterness!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler. Pours a clear light copper body with a frothy off-white head. The nose is pretty decent, a good bit of floral hops, slightly perfumy with some dry pale maltiness. The flavor is a whole lot more bitter than I was expecting, not very much hoppy flavor. The malt base is dry and fairly sturdy, it does a good job staying in the background. It’s just not the most drinkable beer because it’s so harsh in its bitterness. Light bodied, nicely dry with nice fizzy carbonation. The finish lingers on for a very long time, it’s almost too much to be enjoyable.

12 ounce bottle courtesy of queenholly. Thanks! Yay, finally a Flat 12 beer that’s not a gusher! Pours a hazy orange color with a large frothy head. Good head retention. Aroma of big citrus hops with a bit of pine. The taste is big citrus, pine, resin hops. Pale malts. Hop agressive, refreshing, fairly fresh. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness. Nice beer.
