3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear copper body with a thin white head that had good retention and some lace. Aroma had a strong hop profile upfront, pine and citrus mainly but some floral. Some mild caramel malts. Flavor was mostly hops like the aroma citrus and pine made up the major it with only lingering caramel malts in the background, finishing slightly dry. Carbonation was present but mild. Good IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
nice hoppyness -- spruce and resin -- with some mild malty sweetness. flavor is lightly sweet in front with a bittersweet finish. good all around but nothing great, not all that much hop character for a dry hopped ipa.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thin head which dissipates quickly. Moderate hoppy aroma with some unripe oranges, mild malts and a hint of pine. Color is a hazy dark copper. Flavor has moderate bitterness with some grapefruit pith, dry roasted grains and some straw. Pretty light and refreshing with a dry and bitter aftertaste. A decent IPA that hits all of the marks. Nothing really special just a solid brew.

The aroma is very hoppy with citrus and pine and lots of sweet malt. The appearance is gold orange. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall this is a very good beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Manna today! Quail tomorrow? Bottle. Copper with nice starting head but weird floating clumps later that look a bit offputting. Woody hop aroma. Flavour of ups hops and different hops. Soapy, woody, eucalyptus in a bed of balanced malt. A little bit of a concoction.
