3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours a pale golden color with a small head that fades quickly to a film. Good lacing. The aroma is good, but not outstanding. Hops are have a floral aroma. Not sure what kind of hops are used, but the aroma does not seem to match the taste. The beer has a fruity sweetness. Bitter, yes, but not overly bitter and certainly not raspy like some of the continental hops. The combination is unique. Flavor is soft and pillowy compared to a lot of American IPAs. I like it, but it is certainly not typical. This makes the second IPA this week I have tried with unconventional taste/aroma. The other was Great Divide . The beer is immensely drinkable. Accessible for those just getting to know IPAs; but different enough to be interesting to the initiated. The texture is medium. Lower carbonation keeps it soft in the mouth as well.

22oz bomber from wegmans. Nice pine on the nose. Plenty of carbonation with a very foamy white head. Red highlights on an orange/tan body. A bit lackluster on flavor. There is a touch of heat as well as some funk. Not great but still palatable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear, classic golden with a short, rich, white head. The head dissipates to a mere cap relatively quickly. A rather unassuming, dull citrus nose. Moutfheel is progressively harsh/hot, but finishes rather thin. A citrus character in the flavor expresses a little more prominently than in the bouquet. However, it finishes with a stale yeasty quality.
