3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Complex, or confused, aroma of citrus, pine, forest, steel. Mostly pleasant, but kudos for showing up strong. At 5% ABV, bitterness dominates the flavor, more pine and then some resin- but in a good way. Very clean and drinkable. I like their Titan more.

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 don’t know, it’s 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?

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy orange and hasa lot of sediment in suspension. White sticky head. Aroma is spiced malt. Flavor has a forward bite and is bitter and sweet, well balanced. I expected to not like this due to other reviews, but they were too low. It’s quite delicious.
