3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Clean light orange body with a firm and fluffy white head. Looks very inviting.
N: Pine, spruce and earth, though thereís not a really heavy dropping here. Some tangerine and pineapple.
T: Decently bitter. Has a noticeable malt backbone, but itís got a stinging sharpness from the hops that isnít tamed.
M: Very dry and palate scraping. Fluffy and full mouthfeel.
O: A bitter power beer thatís middle of the road for a style for me. I expect a lot more from these three. Itís clean and well made, but itís not terribly interesting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz can poured Into my ipa glass. Pours a hazy golden color with a thick fluffy white head that leaves awesome lacing. Smells of pine, citrus, and lemon. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with a decent hop bite but nice malt balance and California common yeast adds a nice flavor too. Mouthfeel is between light and medium bodied and creamy with good carbonation and a semi dry finish. Very nice summer ipa. 3 brewers that have a reputation for good ipa did a great job on this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very hazy honey-orange with a ton of lasting off-white head. Aroma of moderately fruity citrus, floral hops, a tad of pine and caramel. Flavor is bitter floral hops with moderate malt sweetness and bitter finish. Despite all the foam, it feels a little flat.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Fruity, citrus, danky, resinous aromas. Pours a clear golden/orange color with a white head and good lacing. Nice carbonation the bitterness lets you know itís there, but never steps over the line. Many subtle flavors really enjoyable.
