3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler. Hazy orange-amber body with a lasting disc of creamy foam. Nose of toffee, soapy citrus zest and some dank herb/catspray hop mix. Taste is kind of a muddled mix of the same plus some toast, herbal soap, peppery wood and root vegetable. Near-medium body has a nice drying finish and a smooth medium carbonation.

Poured from the tap at Good People Brewing. Great people! Great beer. The appearance is an orange copper color, with a medium sized white head. The aroma was of hops and pine in the beginning and ending with some citrus. The flavor matched the aroma.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark burnt orange color with golden apricot edges and a 2.5 finger yellowish, off-white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Really good retention with large chunks of soapy lacing left behind. Nice looking IPA.
Earthy, grassy aroma with resinous pine and oily hops countered by a subtle citrus character and sweet malt presence. Floral and slightly onion-y with some grass, pine needle and soil followed by some grapefruit and orange peel. Sweet malt backbone with caramel toffee and biscuit. Very earthy with soil/dirt and a stronger onion like quality than I expected.
On the fuller end of medium bodied with a dry, bitter hop presence that lingers over the sweeter notes and malt backbone into a bone dry finish. Dank and earthy with lots of grass, dank buds, pine needle and spruce tip followed by subtle grapefruit and citrus peel before finishing with a sweet malt backbone. The onion character is again noticeable, but it’s nowhere near as strong as it was in the nose. Very dank and bitter with a decent amount of malt sweetness for balance. Hints of biscuit, cracker, toffee, caramel and booze toward the finish. Nicely balanced IPA but could use a bit more of a tropical/citrus fruit presence to round things out.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Good People. Darker orange beer with some white foam. Pretty bready malt profile and a lot of herbal, piney, and fruity hops. Slight tropical notes, some grapefruit, and orange. A nice bitterness to it, though there is a fair amount of sweet brown sugar and caramel malts. Overall, not bad, though not necessarily in the mold of my normal favorite IPAs.
