4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark copper pour with a small white head. The aroma is amazingly hoppy. Lots of pine and tropical fruit, some herbal notes as well. The flavor follows suit, adding some sweet caramel malt that puts this on a slightly sweeter side of balance and dangerously drinkable. Wonderful IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Like a super version of Algonquin. Dank and piney hops with a touch of citrus rind. A bit too much sweetness for my liking.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Jerry’s/Division Crawl. Amber with good, frothy, beige head, decent legs / Bright nose of cut pine, weed, citrus, caramel / Full body, malty, sweet and somewhat syrupy, big hop bite but still not quite up to the sweet malts, with bitter finish / Big flavors of caramel, toffee, orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple, cut pine / I little sweet for me as compared to the best, but still a fine brew.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Apex Bar in Portland, OR. Colour...clear, garnet-amber with no head. Nose...redolent of hop resin and pine tar. Palate...sweeeet! More citrus than on the nose and loads of tropical fruit that allows the bite of the hops to push through. The boiled sweets amble through the palate as does some fruity frosting and it all works very well together!
