3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from a mixed 12pack. Poured a chill hazed bright orange with a sparse mostly white foamy head. Aroma is odd, sort of like a raisin and paste combo, dough, nut shell and rotting citrus. Medium body, sort of a slick mouthfeel and stingy carbonation. Flavor is dry grains, toast, dry citrus rind touch of paste. This is a session IPA, seems more like an amber.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate citrus, light lemon, florals, and pine. It pours a transparent amber with a two finger orange tinted off-white head. Eventually it settles to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is some thin soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of light citrus and a hint of caramel. The finish has light-moderate pine, florals, grapefruit, and a touch of lemon peel. It’s light bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: clear copper, with a finger of creamy white head that persistently clings to the side of the glass. Aroma: extremely juicy aroma, chock full of tropical and citrus hops; there’s a bit of spruce also, and some spicy notes. Taste: citrus (grapefruit, maybe blood orange), apricot, light resin, with bit of caramel sweetness. Finish: dry, delicately bitter, with slowly fading juicy-fruit chewing gum flavors. Notes: Really enjoyed this. Came across as a good example of the style. Perfect post-workout beer if I want something hoppy but don’t want to weigh myself down with a Two Hearted or Hopslam or something. Bottle from a GL summer sampler, purchased at a ’package store’ in Pennsylvania, a state with the worst beer laws in America.
