4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Tap] Pours a golden color with a light haze to it. Tropical fruit and pineapple aroma. Sweet grains and piney/dank hops come out moreso in the taste. Dry and bitter zesty finish. Good stuff. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
No seen bottling date.
Appearance: The body is moderately hazy with a golden to orange hue. The head is short and thin, settling into a transparent coating that’s rather foamy.
Aroma: The hop aroma is dominate with big fruitiness. I get mango, a dankness that reminds me of Simcoe, pineapple, honeydew, hints of toasted malts, and a mix of orange, tangerine and grapefruit.
Taste: Up front is a quick mango and cantaloupe sweetness which is quickly pushed aside by a dry carbonic mid-taste that has floral overlays. The cantaloupe picks up by the finish with orange juice and mango on the back-end. The fruitiness is most noticed during the finish that lingers on the palate for a few minutes.
Palate: Crisp and refreshing, moderate to highly carbonated.
Overall: This is a nice IPA, but I feel that it’s a bit thin in flavor and it seems a bit pricey. I enjoy this, but I definitely wouldn’t buy it again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy gold, medium carbonation, medium white foamy head. Aromas of earth, pine and big citrus. Taste nor aroma is all that bold, in my opinion. Was hoping for a bit more flavor, but this does have a nice balance to it. Nice malt bill that lightly accentuates the hops. A nice and dry finish holds this one together nicely, but nothing jumped out at me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Huge thanks to Sam for this bottle! Slightly cloudy apricot pour. Nose and flavor are predictable but delightful, with big clementine, spruce tip, lemongrass, hints of peach, incredibly lean on the malt. Clean body. Very very well done.
