3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft and sixer from Capone’s. Pours clear dark straw with off-white head. Nose pops, with mango, tangerine, pineapple, caramel malt, piney hops. Tastes piney hoppy, with tropical fruit, black pepper, and a crisp finish. Also finishes a bit dry. The draft is better, but I could drink either version all day.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear gold pour with a 1 figner, creamy, bright white head that has good retention and leaves some lacing. Big hoppy aroma, lots of citrus, some spicy, a little pine, tropical fruit and hints of biscuit, toast and mineral notes. Flavor starts off with a nice mineral rich entry, fruity, bready yeast, bitter citrus, tropical fruit, citrus rind, spicy hops, thistle-like floral notes, finishing with light cereal and toast notes, lingering citrus, spicy hop and mineral. Light body, slightly creamy, mostly neutral entry, medium, blanketing carbonaiton and a nice, crisp and dry finish. Fantastic I wish there were more beers like this around.

Aroma is loaded with sweet hoppy tangerine or grapefruit. Pours clear with frothy head. Taste is a light and fresh combination of sweet and bitter. Finishes crisp and smooth. Great beer. Would finish the whole six pack myself.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear gold. Great fresh floral. Crisp clean and refreshing as advertised. But it still has a huge amount of hoppyness for its light body. I think I taste a lot of simcoe, reminds me a bit of bells hopslam. Its a really good hop blend. Little bit of caramel malt tase but the hops are the main attraction here. Lots of great tropical fruit, citrus and funky cat pee ( In a good way). Amazing session beer as advertised.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, golden-copper with minimal head. Aroma is dominated by a floral, citrusy hops. Flavor is also primarily citrus-hops, with a very sweet undertone of malt. Nice clean mouthfeel and strong, bitter finish. Outstanding, really.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Wegmans. Pours clear copper with a small white head that is gone before you realize.. big carbonation in the glass and minimal lacing. The aroma has pine, garlic, citrus, a little caramel. A nice inviting beer. The taste has a light bitterness, garlic / onion hop notes, a little earthiness. Overall, an easy drinking ipa that is amazing for the low ABV.

Brewvival 2013. Clear golden pour with a small head. Aroma was piney with nice citrusy notes. Flavors were light and hoppy with nice well rounded hop flavors. Very light body and drinkable. Should make a nice session when bottles arrive. Looking forward to it.
