3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle into tulip. Amber/ orange/ almost brown in color with soapy white head. Big smell with lots of malt and earthy hops. Taste has more malt, with a lot more hop bitterness, and with a lingering bitter hop aftertaste. Medium body, with smooth feel and resiny finish. Overall, not terrible, but not great either. Could be balanced a little better, maybe.

Bomber bottle. Pours orange amber, white head. Mixed hop aroma, body is bitter, finish is crisp. Bit more bit than 6.5% would suggest. Would have again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted from a bomber. It poured a hazy golden yellow with an unusually large foamy off-white head. Had the aroma of hops and lemon zest and a bitter hoppy taste. This bomber was in my fridge for quite a while which may have affected my rating.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Pours a dark copper color with a large white head. A fruity orange nose with some caramel. The flavor is odd: banana, spices, lemons and oranges, yeasty, more sweet citrus. OK.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasting at brewery. Pours a clear amber with a moderate head. Aroma is citrus, pine, earthy, grainy. Taste is a little citrus hops up front, and as they grow noticeable bitter, the malts come in and take over the flavor. The malts win out overall, making this IPA relatively malt-forward while remaining pretty bitter. Not bad. It makes for an interesting balance.
