2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours a clear dark golden with a thick head that dissipates fairly quickly. Has aromas of woody orange. Flavor is nothing special at all to me, plenty of orange, does finish with good bitterness for a session though. Decent, but pretty average.

Can. It poured gold with a frothy white head and lacing. The aroma was floral and the taste was citrus and earthy. It had moderate bitterness as well.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. can into a stange.
A: Poured an entire glass full of head. Hand washed the glass so...unsure what happened here. Mostly clear brass colored body. Big rocky head looks like ice cream soda. Disappointed. OK fuck it, it looks like a beer.
S: Malty scent.
T: Roundly bitter hops flavor. Earthy and maybe a bit floral. Crisp malts noticed but definitely playing a supporting role. More APA taste than IPA.
M: Medium bodied with less carbonation than I expected considering the flood of head at the pour.
O: The head overflow may have been my fault. However Average tasting beer + expensive as hell means I wont be buying this again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can into a glass. Golden pour. Persistent half-inch of thick, foamy head. Aroma of light citrus, some grass, lemon zest. Taste is sweet, floral, lightly bitter, some lingering grassiness. Easy drinking. Refreshing. Nothing special. Solid, inoffensive IPA.

12oz into bottle. Pours a copper gold. Taste of mineral hops, grass, ripe pineapple. Aroma of dried orange, melon, seemingly up front hops yet distant in the end. Smooth, OK, and done.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is rather toned down, but is hoppy alright, with a deeper kind of grapefruit tone and clean malts with an earthy undertone. Taste is lightly sweet, with a down to earth hop profile. Mild resin, northern forest tones, pine and citrus. The bitterness drives in a separate lane, and is quite prominent. I donít know, itís kinda... stern and rugged in this otherwise clean beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a clear copper with a large white head. Aroma is a decent minty and pne hop. Flavor is a more agressive hop with litle or no malt presence. Fi is is a bit thin but you do get some of the hop flavor after th swallow. This is a pretty soild hoppy beer. Since when did 5% beers become session beers?
