3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from StFun. Thanks! Pours orange-gold with a small off-white head. The aroma has some nice fruity notes of pineapple and oranges, as well as doughy malt, and resinous hops. The flavor has this toasty cracker malt to it thatís quickly noted. The hops definitely initially tilt more reinous/pine than the fruity character picked up in the scent. Itís not until after it sits a few minutes does any citrus flavor come out. This is sharp and bitter in the mouth. High on substance and bitterness; packs a punch for a mere 6%, but lacks some depth. I keep thinking Iím actually tasting bitterness. Obviously thatís an exaggeration but I wouldnít mind more subtle nuances here. An enjoyable IPA nonetheless.

Bottle. Pours a deep orange copper with white head. Aroma is a floral citrus. Taste is a combo of pine, orange zest and hops. Something a little acidic and off-putting here. Part of a mix six at a grocer, so not sure how long it was on the shelf, to be fair.

Good and hoppy with a nice aroma but not my favorite IPA. Definitely drinkable in a pinch.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium-dark amber color. Aroma is sort-of hops and sort-of skunked. Weird. Taste is weird too. Itís intensely bitter with a mix of pine and grapefruit hops and a little bit of malt. Iím thinking this is a beer that would need to grow on you, because, frankly, the bitter taste isnít 100% pleasant. Again, this is kind of a weird beer. Iím surprised at the 92 rating - maybe my batch is a bit off?

Bottle. Pours clear copper with a small white head. The aroma is pretty floral with a light mango and orange note. The taste has a big orange and grapefruit kick followed by a dry, bitterness. Nice brew.
