3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fine IPA with both malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Modest citrus hop flavor. Label is a "jump the shark" tirade against ex-wives which made even a happily married guy like me smile.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, golden-orange body with a thin, fizzy, white head that dissipates immediately and leaves a moderate amount of lacing. Aroma is sweet with lots of caramel and some sugary citrus hops that seem to fade after the initial whiff. The hoppiness that does remain is slightly piney and resiny. The flavor is pretty earthy and bitter with a nice mixture of fruits. The caramels are present and offer a nice balance to the hops. Finishes dry and earthy with a bit of a grassy feel. Long, lingering bitterness with some caramels in there too. Palate is medium to full and smooth. Overall, pretty solid IPA. I didn’t have a lot of high hopes going into this one, but it was alright. Nice balance throughout and quite enjoyeable.
