3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Relatively mild, malty double IPA. Hops are mostly citrus, but quite a bit more restrained than I would prefer. Solid mouthfeel, otherwise just OK.

Can from mane liquor. Pours a dark golden with firm white head. Nose shows sweet and sticky fruit. Mango and apricot with slight pine. Taste is grassy, with sweet fruit and some pine. Spritzy citrus finish too. Very drinkable ipa. 8% ABV well hidden too.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pastel, sandy gold and opaque with a thinning, soppy white pad that manages a little lace. Nose yields notes of passionfruit, lychee and pineapple with hints of herbaceous, piney and weedy hops, and just a lick of citrus cleanser that is unshakable. Tangy, fruit juice dominates the palate but is ill-defined. Body is light and the alcohol has a heat to it that roughens up the finish. Hops are weak and drowned by the fruit esters. Carbonation is soft with a mostly dry finish. Grapefruit, peach and apricot conserve sums it up. Really one dimensional in the broad scheme of things. Not bad, just not exciting either.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2014 Can from Mane Liquor. Pours clear orange with a small white head which is quite sticky. Nose is very sweet - full of dank, apricot, mint and lychee with mildly fresh cut grass. Taste is full of lychee and clean cut grass with more sweet tropical juiciness throughout. Almost bright lime citrus. Nice aggressive bitterness to finish it off which I really like. Vibrant stuff. It really has a big whack of sweetness to it but it kind of works nicely with the astringent bitterness. Tasty stuff

My favorite of the Golden Road beers. Good IPA, a bit light on the hops but has a full profile.
