22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy orange/golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of some floral and citrusy hops, some caramel, light honey, and a pale malt note. Flavor the same, a little hoppier than the smell would have led one to believe. Average texture. A decent double IPA.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 ounce bottle purchased at Nugget in Woodland. The aroma on this is pretty faint in terms of hops. Almost some stale hop character. A little herbal, and a little lemony, otherwise just a light sweetness is present. Slightly hazy golden-orange body with a small white head present. Starts with mostly sweet maltiness. Light herbal hop flavors are also present. Becomes a little chewy in the middle, before it becomes rather warming and ethanolic towards the end. A harsh bitterness comes through later on, which is accentuated by the usage of honey. Not a huge fan of this beer at all.

Bottle. Pours a hazy, orange color with a nice, frothy head. Tangy aroma with some grapefruit in the background. Nice, hoppy taste. Kind of chewy. But good tart in there. Not complex. Decent brew.
