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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange-red with white head, aroma brought notes of orange peel, floral notes, nice tropical fruit notes, some dank notes, hints of bread, biscuit, some grapefruit. Taste is a mix of biscuit, bread, hints of orange, grapefruit, touch of pine, earth, finishing bitter, slightly sweet. Nice, balanced, but not overly malty IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not bad nose, biscuity, malty nose with some citrus peeking through. Hazy orange, tons of carbonation and a large white foamy head. Tastes alright, on the predominantly malty side. Upfront a hint of oniony hops, finishes quite malty, spicy with predominantly leafy hops. A bit of an unpleasant bitterness with this one doesn’t quite balance the rest of the beer. Medium bodied and average carbonation. Interesting.
