3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to pint at Greenbush. Looks solid; malty though. A hazy brownish orange with foamy off-white head. Smells sweet and hoppy with a notable caramel presence. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant mouthfeel that’s medium-bodied. An enjoyable fresh-hopped, single-hopped IPA.

Demeter pours a hazy rusty copper with th a thick beige head that lasts a long while. The aroma is floral with healthy amounts of caramel and bread. The flavor is floral, caramel and bread as well. Overall this is a decent beer.

Big hop nose on this beer. Ripe tropical fruit notes with a pleasing bitter dankness. Bright and boldly flavored.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: A small haze away from being clear copper & amber with a moderately chunky, soapy beige tinted head caked on top. Aroma has mild toffee & biscuit malt with a notable honey-coated cereal grain sweetness. Hops are light & vague; a touch peppery, maybe floral or grassy, but certainly not the centrifuge of the nose. Taste is more hop-centric with some piney & slightly soapy hops out of the gate. Moderate bite, but the bitterness subsides quickly thanks to a converging honeycomb & toasted biscuit malt sweetness. Just outside the fringe of caramel. If you really try, you can pull a very faint, bitter citrus peel flavor from the hops, but I think it’s mostly forced. Mostly just a soapy, borderline evergreen hop sting. Abrupt finish, not much going on with this one. To be fair, freshness may be a factor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of tropical fruits, caramel, citrus, faint grapefruit, perfume, and grass. It pours a hazy/cloudy orangish-brown with a large orange tinged beige head that has great retention. There is a good amount of clumpy soapy lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate tropical fruits, caramel, and a hint of lemon. The finish has light citrus, faint grapefruit, lemon, and a touch of grass. It’s light-medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy Burnt Caramel with a good amount of lightly tinted head. Aromas light citrusy taffy. Mouth feels light but good the taste is unique spicy hoppiness upfront the spice last through the beer long spicy aftertaste some citrus notes some weed grass type notes. My second taste has floral notes in it and some light malt notes. Overall its a drinkable beer but it leaves an uneasiness to it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle, no date. Pours a hazed nice orange copper with a slightly off-white head. Grapefruit and orange zest aroma, pineapple and pine. Flavor still has the citrus, but leans more toward herbal and grassy hops, though the tropical fruit is still in there and increases as I drink more. Pretty nice.
