Bottle pour. Pours nice Amber with good nose. Smells of bright, fresh hops. Taste is a little watery. Some good hop flavors, just not great on tongue. Easy to drink with plenty of palate left. Enjoyed for my first wet hop this season.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice caramel color and lacing. Mild grassy aroma. Tastes a little sweet, grassy with a little pine coming through. Moderate bitterness and a dry finish. Less bitter than an ipa but different for a pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear caramel gold with a finger foamy yellow-white head and nice lacing. Jammy citrus caramel aroma with some dank hops. Super smooth and very well-balanced. Mild caramel malt bed with a river of pure hop goodness on top. Light pine bitterness. Very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance is a cloudy deep golden with a moderate white foam cap. Aroma is strong fresh cut grass, with hints of pine and wood. Taste is a rich, toasty malt that gives way to a strong bitterness and hop flavors of acidic grapefruit, pine, and grass. Mouthfeel is light to moderate with a moderate carbonation. Finishes very dry and sticky on the tongue with a lingering bitterness and grassy flavor. Overall, an assertively bitter APA with tons of grassy hop flavor and aroma.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a light tea colour with pleasant frothy head. Nose is bright and herbaceous, with hints of fruit. Taste is complex with melon rind, white pepper, thyme, hints of mint, bitter grass, and a nice oily, creamy malt palate. Great!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the better GD hoppy beers I’ve tried, it’s got a nice dank weed quality with a little bit of tropical fruitiness, probably pineapple if I had to guess. Way better than their other IPAs in my experiences.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle into Tulip. Minneapolis.
Appearance: Copper in color. Very slight haze, but mostly transparent. Very little head.
Aroma: Hops - I get mostly floral and piney. Light malty backbone.
Taste: Mildy bitter. A touch of sweetness.
Palate: Medium/thin body. Slick texture. Moderately long finish.
Overall: A pleasant beer, but a bit of a disappointment. It is a pale ale I suppose, but I was hoping the hops would be a little less delicate. Still, the flavor is nice and the hop profile is well done.
