3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours quite clear golden with a large, pillowy white head. Aroma has a huge C-hop presence, basically like picking a cascade cone off the vine, opening it up, and inhaling. That comes through in the flavor as well, along with a bit of biscuit and a medium-bitter finish. Light and drinkable, but at 7% maybe deceptively so. Over the course of the bottle, the bitterness becomes a bit much. Very enjoyable, though.

22 oz bottle: Pours orange slightly cloudy with a big tan head. Aroma of citrus and spruce - Amazing. Taste is bitter citrus hops, great profile. Finishes light but is an excellent hop forward IPA with great aroma and appearance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12-oz. can. Nice nose of very sweet orange and a bunch of typical hop notes - alfalfa, basil, and pine. Pours an amber orange with not much head. Orange and grapefruit are the first horses out of the gate for the flavor before a piney, herbal bitterness charges to the forefront. Very crisp, light palate with a dry, grassy finish. A good summertime IPA - refreshing while pleasantly bitter.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Perfume-like in aroma, pours a hazy light amber with a thick cap of off-white foam. Aromas of Valencia orange, light pine, citrus floral, lychee, juicy-fruit gum, grenadine-like, and a candy-like sweetness, with a slight toasty aspect. Taste upfront is moderately sweet, a medium caramel sweetness, a slight malty richness which is then followed with a smooth bittering. Finishes dry, lingers bitter. Very very good.

22 Oz Bomber. The beer pours to a hazy orange/ amber color with a medium head. The aroma has a piney, slight caramel, biscuits & some mild citrus. The taste has a slightly sweet start followed by a nice medium bitter finish. Overall I think this is a good IPA
