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.

Cloudy amber beer, goods cream coloured head. Palate is softish and a little airy. Mild fine carbonation. Nice soft creamy malt base. Good hops - rich tangerine and orange, mild marmalade. Whisper of aniseed. Finishes soft and creamy with mellow hop bitterness. A mellow and luxuriant IPA - very nice indeed!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Worth trying if you see it around. Very sweet subtle ipa, almost more like an apa. Its defining thing to me, is that is has a sweet melon taste, almost like one of those melon vanilla ice cream things. I havent encountered that taste in any other ipas. However, it falls short of greatness because it just seems to be thin across the board.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle:   Amber with a slight copper hue, moderate to large frothy off-white head, very nice lacing.   Looks great!   Somewhat of a dull hop aroma, but moreso an old bread or stale wheaty bread aroma.   Not exactly
what I want to smell in my IPA.   Similar tongue, dull hop but moreso this musty stale bread like flavor.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Oh boy, this was pretty much a waste.   I was expecting so much more as some
of their anniversary releases are so tasty, but this IPA is just well below the standard.   Little hop aspect, but a lot of stale/musty/moldy bread.   A let down...

This is a staple IPA, so good. Solid citrus and really nice body. Floral, orange juice taste. Looks a little dark for how it taste, but who cares?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark orange color with a decent white head that faded quickly but leaves good lacing. Smells of grapefruit, caramel and toffee. Tastes of all the same things with a light hop bite.Moutheel is medium and chewy with good carbonation and a dry finish. Not bad for a east coast style ipa, one of the better ones I?ve had actually. I Still like most of west coast ipas better though.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Where to start? First off, the smell is not enjoyable. Secondly, the taste is not enjoyable and thirdly, the overall experience is not enjoyable. I am not impressed with this beer and don’t consider it a solid IPA.
