3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured a dark golden color with a thin coating of white head. Aroma has citrus, resins, pines, some sweet malts, and a bit of flowers. Mouth feel is medium with good carbonation. Flavor has a punch of hops, citrus, resins, pines, but has malt to balance it out.

Thanks to fritz123 for this gem. Pours a clear apricot color with a thick head. Aroma is piney hops with sweet malts. Flavor is more sweet bready malts, and thick caramel, but the hops give it a nice balance. Definitely an east coast ipa bordering on an imperial. Very enjoyable

A very nice IPA, big aromas of hoppy grapefruit, what I like best here though is that it’s really well balanced with malt, and moreover, has elements that span from citrus to herbal to juicy melon, to slight cookie. The finish is not bitter but inviting. A little strong but worth it.

Bottle. Orange pour with white head. Grassy, very citrus hop aromas. Herbal, grassy and citrus hop flavors. Not super bitter, more juicy.

I like it. Hop nose is mildly citric, more of a candied fruit sort of thing, pineapple seems most apparent, but a light cantaloupe flavor with a mild floral earthiness, clean bready-caramel malts, mostly balanced finish. Nice pure amber color with a big clean foamy head. There seems to be not much about this beer that screams ’hey look at me’ but that is quite alright, because it is otherwise a well built IPA.

Ładny aromat oraz smak amerykańskich chmieli. Odczuwalne cytrusy i owoce tropikalne. Przyjemna goryczka.

The unassuming aroma is misleading and may hinder the overall enjoyment a little. A little. The brew pours a clear amber and provides a very hop forward taste with strong citrus finish. The bitterness of the hops enhances or, perhaps, is enhanced by the citrus rind finish.
