4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear, amber colored body, with a big, two finger thick head full of craggy foam. The smell was very hoppy indeed, evoking grapefruit and mandarin orange slices. The taste was a citric and bitter affair, and very clean. The malt backbone was a little nondescript, and I think this could have used a bit more body. If this was ever tweaked up to a DIPA, it would be phenomenal.

Okay. Not my kind of IPA. I prefer a simpler, lighter grain bill so the emphasis is much more on the hops. There are malt flavors that taste well, but battle the hops. Overall, I like it, but simply don’t prefer all those different malts.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Meditrina. Clear bright copper with lasting offwhite head and lace. Floral citrus and spice aroma. Mild bready toffee sweetness with assertive rind and pine bitterness with a reprise of melon and biscuit sweetness in the finish. Medium body aggressive carbo. Very good.

I must have gotten a old bottle of this, because this thing was cheese-ified to the max. No resemblance of an IPA whatsoever. I will definitely re-rate when another bottle is purchase...if another bottle is purchased. Blech.

Hugely hopped beers are either unpalatable or they make to the other side and transcend the bitterness of hops and enter into a new flavour profile which can now longer be called piney or citrusy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a new 12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange-golden with a thick off-white head that settles to a thick ring and film, leaving lots of spotty, soapy hanging lace. Nose involves some dank herbal earthy stuff, some caramel, plenty of pine and some tropical fruit. Pretty sweet flavor, but also quite bitter. Medium bodied, oily, sticky, resinous, finishing on the dry side. Very nice, a beer I’ve walked past many times but digging the new format. Not a huge citra bomb, but it’s in there and I like the blend with the less trendy cascade and centennial.

Pours copper, slightly darker than style. White 1/2 inch head. Grassy citrus nose. Flavor is weird citrus almost alcohol citrus. Finish is real dry and lingering bitterness. Finishes well but begins weird. Those Hebrews are always good but different.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy orange/amber with a tall, sticky, off-white head.
The aroma is light flowery citrus hops.
The flavor is smoothly bitter that sits on a chewy malt foundation.
Good but needs a little more crispness to suit me.
