4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.
Pours a clear darker gold with a one finger white head. Really good head retention with decent lacing.
Aroma is much better than many other IPA’s I have had. Lots and lots of pine along with a touch of citrus. Really a nice blend of earth and citrus here. A little bit of light wood too with pinecones.
The flavor doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. More pine than citrus but not nearly as strong as was present in the aroma. Moderate to high bitterness throughout along with some more wood and pine resin. Finish is moderately sticky with bitterness lingering long after all flavors have subsided.
Overall, a better than average IPA. It is definitely hop-centric with malt being nearly undetectable but the hops in this really work well. One to pick up every now and then.

Bottle. Aroma of citrus hops but also a lot of toasted malts. I have a feeling I’m not going to love it. Taste is syrupy citrus peel and toasted malts. Not a fan of the malts they’re using here.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Smells like crusty socks, tastes what I'd imagine crusty socks taste like. Too much malt in this one and the recipe itself seems like a hot mess vs something thought out. Skip this one, unless you're just looking to get drunk.

Bottle from Bethesda Food and Beverage. Amber body with puffy white head. Nose is grassy, hops and spicy. Tate is lots of hops of course but also nice caramel and spicy notes. Nice texture. Subtle and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark copper beer with a medium foamy bright white head. Citrusy hop nose of grapefruit pith, pine resin, and lemon oils. Flavor is juicy with citrus flavors that coat the tongue and devolve into something oily and pungent, in a good way. Underneath is a bit of sweetness that comes through gradually. Pretty good and not overpowering.

Draught @ Albion. Cloudy lemony yellow with medium sized foamy off-white head, citrus aroma, lightly bitter lemon zest flavored thin body, medium bitter finish with citrus aftertaste. Very flavorful and refreshing brew, very much Citra dominated.
