3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a vivid golden yellow. Nose is heavy with hops and citrus. Taste is quite bitter, almost a sharp bitterness. Good amount of hop flavor, but the hop profile is a little muddled and hart to pick out. Good beer, but nothing amazing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light orange color: excellent lacing. The aroma has an incredibly perfumed hop, unique to any other beer I can think of; flowery and fragrant. Whole cone hops, piney and metallic. Flavor is more metal, spicy orange peel/citrus, more perfume/flowers. Definitely a soft flower-petal component. Has a soft, soapy feel to it. No real bite on the way down. Very good, not quite sweet but soft like laundry but with lots of flavor.

From a bottle. Pours hazy amber with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like grapefruit, caramel, resin, toasted malt, and some dry nuttiness. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells nutty, like toasted malt, grapefruit, resin, and caramel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This wasn’t great for me. Excessively yeasty and almost soapy, with astringent citrus flavors hidden by medicinal toothpaste and mintiness. Finis dries out as it warms, disappointing.

Tallahassee, Fl - on tap - Proof Brewing - Tennessee St. Hazy, medium orange pour, light off white head, light lace. Aroma has some toe jam essence, some peaches, a touch of spruce.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Nikki’s Liquors, 4/2/15
Aroma: The nose is fairly heavy pine/resin, tropical hops as well, basically just a big, hoppy aroma
Appearance: An unclear lighter orange color with a frothy white head and fairly coating, spotty lace
Flavor: The taste has is pretty heavily bitter, not balanced at all, but with a really nice hop flavor
Palate: The body is medium, with a fairly smooth feel, soft carbonation, and a long, dry finish
This beer really does nail the West Coast IPA stereotypes. Big, resiny, dry, and quite good. It isn’t a perfect beer, but it is right on style, and damn enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Misty honey gold. Lacey bone-colored head. Coldwater aroma, with some sulphur . Tasty, with lots of rambunctious hops. A few off notes towards the end. Good residual bitterness in the aftertaste. OK, didn’t love. On tap, Baby Proof.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bomber. Aroma is bready malt, some grassiness. Murky light-amber color with a medium head. Citrus rinds bitterness is up front, with some pine resin and the malt is in the background just a little too much. Could have a bit stronger malty sweetness to it. Palate is a bit heavier than most IPAs, with a juicy "chewiness" to it, which is quite pleasant; that aspect saves it from being a mostly-good IPA and makes it a really good IPA.
