4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16 ounce can bought at a local grocery store. 4 pack for 9 bucks. Not bad considering they were bombers. Actually a good deal. Pours a bright orange color with a large white head. Big sweet fruity nose. Great flavor: marmalade, orange peel lengthy bitterness, light toast, big orange almost bursting through, leaves with tons of bitterness and resin in the tail. Really subtle in ways that Pliny is. That is, balance along with huge dominant bitter hops. Actually the more I have this the more I think it tastes like Pliny. A bit lighter but similar. Simcoe is huge. Excellent job.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from can to glass nice clear orange-ish amber with nice white head. Aroma is hopped with essence of grapefruit, citrus, and pine. Light bodied with nice carbonation contributes to a great mouthfeel. Finishes bitter but with a lingering piney, citrus-fruity aftertaste. A really nicely balanced IPA. Not just your typical "bitter", but a well-rounded brew throughout all aspects.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at GBBF 2013. It pours clear amber with a small bubbly white head. The nose is wood, resin, sweet honey, light floral and earth. The taste is bitter-sweet, oily, varnish, wood, earth, resin, unami aspect, caramel and alcohol. Medium body, low carb and oily mouth-feel. A bit cloying after a bit, but decent nonetheless...

Good IPA. More resin forward, but not untowardly so. This one is all hops, all the time. B
