2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy, dark yellow color with lots of head and upon closer inspection there are thousands of small particles floating around. The aroma is rather muted with some grain notes. This definitely does not have the hop presence usually found in IPAs. The taste is bitter citrus with a very dry finish. The body is medium. A below average IPA.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma rises exciting up through this IPA dense white durable foam, forming a beautiful aroma picture of pine and citrus on a light caramel malt background. The taste is powerful and strong hops where the flavors of orange peel, pine needles, peach and light caramel is the main theme. Lovely creamy mouthfeel keep the flavor in the mouth for a long time and leaves a dry aftertaste. Pleasant IPA where especially hops with fruity flavor is dominating.

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
