Draft. This certainly is the ipa to be a benchmark to. Big floral and citrus aroma. Even bigger bright citrus taste. Truly world class for an ipa.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A delicious, hoppy IPA with nice, but subdued, maltiness. Aroma has notes of spruce, citrus and alcohol. Pours hazy orange. Wonderful lacing of a creamy off-white head. Taste is medium bitterness for an IPA with a long finish. Alcohol is noticeable but not overwhelming. Overall one of my favorite IPA’s.

pours a cloudy brownish orange with a nice white head that laces nicely. Nose and taste are of a nice blend of sweet floral and citric hops. The malt profile is a bit weak but present.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pour is deep almost clear copper with a smallish white head. Aroma is thick toffee malt, clan pine hops, and a light citrus note. Flavor is also loaded with pine hop and clean caramel malt with hints of resinous hops. Tasty.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at buffalo wild wings in Philly. Has a slight aroma of hops, and has a nice flavor of hops, but is not overly bitter. Not the best, but pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy orange with a half finger of off-white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Taste is lightly bitter and lightly sweet. Taste of citrus and biscuit. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, very good. Something I really plan to drink again.
