3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Darker blond to amber coloured beer with no carbonation and a small white head. Fruity and strong hoppy hinted aroma. Full creamy palate. Finish is bitter hoppy, rather dense beer with a stronger dry hoppy bitter ending. Strong but balanced IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
All skunk to the nose with hints of passion, orange, guava. Sweet and then when you swallow a bitter orange hit with full tongue dryness and a tickle in the throat. There is something slightly cheesy running through this.

Pours amber with white head, aroma is malty and hoppy. Taste up front is floral and citrusy hops moving into a caramel/toffee sweetness with some bitterness at the end. Average IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fruity aroma with light lemon zest. Sparkling clear amber in color with a nice frothy head. Nice pungent hop character, lots of columbus-lime like flavor, sharp bite at the swallow with little lingering burn. Plenty of caramel malt lends a nice toffee character. Medium bodied and easily quaffed. This is pretty tight.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a sparkling copper color with a cream hued head. Aroma is slightly sweet but with a hoppy bitterness being most prevalent. Flavor is obviously hoppy but not as harsh as I expected, from the aroma. Very crisp. Notes of grasses and somehow - soap, but not in a bad way really. Solid stuff.

Bottle. Pours a clear lightly orange amber with a thick off white head. Big slightly skunky citrus hops with some earthy malt behind it. Medium bodied, slightly sweet. Touch of cigarette butts and earthy malt. Finishes up with a big grapefruit bitterness and a hint of sweet malt.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transparent copper with a thin white head that laces. Incredibly fruity nose of mango and peach, also some light pine. Sweet flavor with more fruit, a nice balance in pale malt and some leafy earth before a wave of pine hits in the back. There is an off-note there, lightly alcoholic, that detracts from an otherwise very-good flavor. Well-carbonated but the finish could do with some length.
