3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a hazy new penny copper color with a medium white head that has good retention. The aroma is rife with sweet roasted malts and some pine. The taste is bitter pine forward with sweet caramel malts following quite strongly. Something spicy in the taste too. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with a piney bitter aftertaste. Overall: Decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a medium orange with a small soapy white head with very little lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, dank hops, rye, sweet malts, and some light tropical fruits. Taste is very similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium long finish. Overall, rather tasty, enjoyable, and drinkable IPA that makes nice use of rye malts.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A cloudy golden orange pour with a white head. Hop aromas are fairly dank. Plenty of pine, grapefruit, and mild tropical fruit. There’s some malt sweetness of bread and dough, as well. A mild bitterness and grass flavor. Light bread/malt sweetness along with pine, grapefruit, and hints of tropical fruit in terms of the hop profile.
