2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Glad to see the superfluous umlaut used here. I find it comforting. This is an alright IPA too. It’s cloudy orange w/ a long lasting, foamy white head. This stuff has a pretty nice hoppy nose to it but it’s a bit oversweet and a chalky mineral note seems to emphasize and unpleasant grassy character. It finishes w/ some iced tea astringent notes, some simple sweetness and sticky, resinous bitterness. This stuff isn’t a total waste but a mediocre IPA is one I will never buy again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear orange, light tan head. Light citrus, bit of honey malt. Moderately bitter, lighter sweetness with a decent light biscuity backbone. Medium finish, fairly effervescent. Pretty good.

Pine bomb. Strong pine and hopps flavored dominate this beer. Finished hoppy and bitter. Light malt backbone. Bouts deep copper red in color with a sticky thick reddish head. Had at home.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma to me has a resin-hay, sorta. Slightly sulfur. With a 10% ABV it is super smooth; as I don’t note the biting, bitter on the tongue as described on the label.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fairly mild spruce and citrus hop aromas.
Copper color, pretty hazy; fairly good sized fairly white head.
Medium bitterness is only really prominent taste.
Light to medium body; average carbonation; very slight oily texture; fairly long hoppy finish.
Overall a reasonable IPA, though not particularly complex or interesting.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Cloudy amber body, almost muddy. Frothy, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, pine, grapefruit, lemon and dough. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery turning sticky texture, lively carbonation. The usual. Pine and grapefruit and resin taste. Lingering bitterness. The sludgy, bottom-of-the-barrel appearance didn’t leave a good first impression.
