4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hefty hop notes, but still a supremely balanced IPA that doesn’t rely too heavily on any one ingredient. Tastes superb, with one of the greatest aromas I’ve ever encountered. A little earthy, a little malty- and just right.

Sample. Poured a foggy yellowish color with a soapy white head. Aroma was grass, pepper, citrus and pine. Flavor was grapefruit, spruce and Belgium malts. Sticky and oily feeling. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the annual CBS picnic, and self served to clear plastic with a deep, orangy amber hue, lasting cream & bubbles froth to the head, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The nose was smooth malt, a hint of spice, and expressive citrus of grapefuit & orange. A favorably sharp astringency, estery sweetness, and the 7% abv worked well together in the flavor. Medium bodied, the hop signature assisted the brew in lingering bitter and dry past the finish. Strong, and almost Imp. worthy.
