3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to snifter. Looks solid; a completely transparent burnt orange with foamy head somewhere between off-white and light beige. Smells solid; not Triple IPA hoppy though. Somewhat reserved citrus hops and sweet pale malt. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Good, not great.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Nice amber orange colored brew with a thin off white head. This has a sweet cake like nose with notes of light perfume. Bits of peaches are in place. Flavors of walnuts and bread crust are present with each drink. This is a little bit piney on the back end. Not much in the way of citrus. The mouthfeel is surprisingly soft.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Completely unbalanced, hoppy beer. It was awesome. Oh, sure, there was a bit of caramel malty flavors, but lots of grapefruit and pine. Nice heavy, viscous palate. On tap, Suttree’s Tavern

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Just like West Coas IPA. Excessively bitter and clean but without anything all that great in the way of aroma or flavor hops.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark gold to light copper body with a small fizzy beige head. The nose is piney and citrusy with a light hint of garlic over a caramel and toasty malt base. The flavor is pretty aggressively bitter with lots of grapefruit pithiness, a little less harsh than I was expecting. There’s a bit of tropical fruitiness in here, but not nearly what I was hoping for based on the description. I keep coming back to the garlic flavor though, and it’s too distracting for me. Medium bodied with a fairly sturdy malt backbone and some sticky resiny hops. Good beer, but not something that I’d seek out again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark orange-amber color with a medium sized foamy yellow-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was strong pine and resin with a tangy undertone. The flavor was bitter with a strong alcohol presence and fairly strong though rough pine, resin, black pepper, hot pepper, catbox, cardboard, yeast and a sour almost toffee undertone. Very long harsh and bitter finish of alcohol, pine, resin and pepper. Thick and full bodied. Ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle from wchesser. This beer is clear golden and some slowly rising bubbles are visible. I get vegetable in the aroma but notice no others have. Pale malts, too. Well, I taste them, too. That fades. Resinous pine enters and has is significant. Sweetness is big and almost sugary. At the finish some cinnamon is tasted.
