3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear gold with white head and nice lacing. Aroma is some sweetness, pine, and melon. The taste is a nice balance of mellow malty, tropical fruit sweetness and bitter hops. The finish is bitter and long lasting, a bit too much for my liking. It tastes a bit boozier than the 8.5%, but not much. Overall, very drinkable IIPA, especially for the price.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a clear amber with strong off-white head and massive lacing. Smells of grapefruit, pine, and a hint of melon. Taste is strong, pine, grapefruit, very hoppy, medicine, alcohol. Bitterness is strong but not overpowering, it hits late in the aftertaste and does stick around a bit too long.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Big clean grapefruit on the nose, then it picks up that green onion note that all four of their other hoppy beers have had so far. Medium bodied, big and sweet, more green onion hop juice coming through. Warming alcohol, but not boozy, just present. Slow grapefruit on the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden with a large Rocky white head. Big, huge piney butter and pithy aroma full of gentle melon and perhaps kiwi as well. Big hoppy flavor with a big green and leafy hop tone with tropical tones of kiwi and pineapple and melon, but also earthy and bitter piney and dry. A bit bitter and leafy for my taste but somewhat different and leafy.

Can from Full Throttle Bottles. Nice clear copper color with a foamy white head. Pleasant aroma of sweet malt, citrus hops and a hint of dank earth. Big resiny flavor but also a kick of booze. Fairly well balanced for being big. Pleasant.
