3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz bomber from Jonathan Ron. Poured a burnt orange body with an average sized tight foamy off white head. Aroma of vegetables, wet bread, cardboard, citrus, bad oranges and caramel. The body is slightly fizzy from the stronger carboantion and fuller to the point where it almost seems creamy, average duration bitter fininsh. Flavor of old citrus rinds, caramel, bread crusts, fruit pulp, rotting flowers. Blah, but thatís about what I expected.

22 oz bottle. Hazy orange amber with a small head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, flowers and a bit of cat pee. Flavor is lots of bitter PacNW hops with a toasty malt presence just for balance. Medium body with average carbonation and a dryish, clean, long, bitter finish. Great IPA, loads of hop character, very easy drinking.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a bright orange amber with a nice white head. Aroma is kinda weak, but whatís there is nice. Itís mostly pineapple, lemons and pine resin. Some biscuity malt. Taste is mildly sweet with a kinda bland bitter finish. Itís not terrible, but thereís a cheap malty quality to the beer - sort of a musty grain note that you normally see in macro stuff but Iíve noted it before in other FS beers. Mouthfeel is sudsy with some nice hop oiliness, but it gets a bit watery in the middle. Decent but nothing special.

Pours deep amber into a Sam glass. Off-white head with excellent retention recedes to coat surface leaving spot lacing. Citrus and pine aromas. Sweet dark caramel upfront turning to bitter resin before a lasting grapefruit finish.
