3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bomber pours clear copper with gold edges and sort of light tan head of foam. I smell a little tart to resin as well as vague hoppiness with mild malt sweetness around the edges. The taste begins with a firm sweet malt base but then slightly citrus notes and a resiny hoppiness seem to have no problem elbowing through the malt sweetness. I get a good dose of hop flavor and lesser amounts of resiny hop bitterness. Pretty nice brew.

22 oz. bottle shared by someone, I believe Paul, at our massive Hunahpu’s tasting- thanks again! Pours a semi-cloudy gold color with a small off-white head. Notes of pale malts, grass, citrus, herbs, and nectar. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Solid IPA, but I liked the Homefronts from Cigar City and Perennial slightly more.

Pours a light clear golden color. Nice west coast vibe going on with a lot of grassiness and a touch of citrus in the aroma and flavor. Finish is a lot of grapefruit and some piney bitterness. Digging this one.

Delicious and refreshing. Great summer/session IPA. Zesty orange comes through really well -- bright, juicy and aromatic. Fluffy and effervescent carbonation. Doughy-sweet malts, with notes of scones and light caramel. Citrusy hops blend seamlessly with the orange. Moderate, balancing bitterness. Easy to drink. And tasty.

A gift from SJ. A nice different little IPA. I liked the tangy fresh orange peel / citrus taste. Smoe hops add to the blend.
It was a tad thin, but good.

22 ounce bomber pour. Amberish color with a white head. Starts out great, but then fades, a nice drinking ipa though.
