3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
7.5%ABV. American IPA.
This was a a little bit of a surprise and when it tapped out that deep, almost red amber gold (6-8ºSRM), I fell in love.
The nose was light and had a clean fresh citrus nose.
Pronounced carbonation made the whole experience less hefty and a made what would otherwise have been a ponderous ale so very deceptively drinkable. Each sip finished off with a clean light mouthfeel.
The palate is robust, boasting a full malty body, hop-balanced with bright citrus where grapefruit peel predominates and then a short slide of bitter into a nice clean palate. Ready to go again...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy yellow with thin but lingering frothy white head. Aroma is floral, pine, slight resin, citrus and sweet malt. Taste is initially sweet then quite strongly bitter, not well balanced but enjoyable enough. Slick mouth feel and lingering finish. Pretty nice

Pours golden with decent white head. Aroma is citrus and pine. Taste is stone fruit, followed by immediate bitterness which is not well integrated. Long bitter finish with some alcohol.

Bottle at Meadows. Nose is fruity and malty, toffee. Taste is sweet malts and toffee, bitter fruitiness. Quite bitter finish. Somehow a bit strange and unbalanced.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of their better beers but still nothing to write about. Better on tap by far than in bottles. Funky tart hops but the alcohol keeps it together.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 7.5%. Fruity hop aroma, sweet and caramelly. Hazy golden colour. Small stable white head. The flavour has a grapefruity bitterness. Distinct, but clean. Good fruity hop flavour to go along.
