3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours clear honey color. Aroma of citrus, grain, pine. Very low aroma. Flavor is spruce, caramel, citrus. Overall, not a bad beer. It has enough character to make it drinkable. It isnít a real standout though. Something that I would choose for the lower alcohol content, but still with a nice hop to it.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 12oz bottle
Unusual IPA in that the aroma is light and about as malty as it is hoppy, yet the flavor is quite hop dominated. Lingering bitter and hoppy aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours from 12 oz bottle a yellow hay hue, with floaties evident, forming a slight off white head of foam. Aroma upfront with Scottish field grass, pine resins, barn hay, with a yeasty caramel biscuity goodness. Flavour is grassy, husky straw, lemon, orange peel, potent grapefruit, and fruit peel with a medium bitter finish. Extremely flavourful session IPA, IMO.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - clear light copper, thick, soapy lace - nose has a simple, semisweet malt base (light caramel, mild sweatbread) that mostly serves as a base to showcase the hops (floral, citric, moderately piney - strong cascade presence) - moderate carbonation - clean and simple - bready malt turns semidry quickly, so the hops take center stage - cascades are pretty prominent, but there is some grass and peppery character, too - sadly, a very strong bark/wood/twig flavor finishes, along with a slight vegetal notes - perhaps this will be resolved in latter batches - a valiant effort that falls apart slightly at the end.

Excellent malt hop for a %5% beer. Fruits ripe and dirty. Rich toasty malt. Well done for a %5% ipa. What the fack? Rich, toasty malty, dry wet and fruity tangy hops.

Pretty lackluster effort from GD on this one. Faded aroma and flavor in this golden pour. Mild bitter finish leaves you disappointed.
