3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of my all time favorites from Mike @ Green Man. Possibly the easiest drinking IPA you will ever have with an abundant citrus scent and flavor and a sharp phenolic bite. Great beer. Wish they had not toned it down for the seasonal release because this first version was spot on

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint glass from the tap at Bull McCabe’s in Durham, NC. Pours hazy light yellow. Little to no head, but lots of lacing. Aroma brings bubblegum sweet. Grapefruit, hoppy. Very good.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Tylers Raleigh. I thought this was an absolutely wonderful IPA. Cloudy golden yellow pour with one finger of creamy white head. Intensely aromatic, fresh tropical fruit and juicy citrus. Absolutely wonderful, extremely refined hop character in the nose. Very green, like putting your face in a handful of hops. Candied pine resin and citrus rind. Flavor is juicy and rich with hops. Tropical fruit and citrus abound. Leafy hop character. Bitterness is pretty well restrained, becomes a bit heavy after a while.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint at Tylers Apex. Good aroma, sweet, citrus and minor yeastiness. Orange grapefruit, clove, clean light brownish orange. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfee, bitter finish. Pretty tasty, aroma best part. Real nice blend of the hops and yeast.
