3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11th March 2015
Light haze on this amber beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, decent fine carbonation. Light malts, semi sweet with a mild caramel streak. Good orange start to the hops, little hop spice. Some peel and marmalade. Pine and a whisper of lemon. Smooth semi dry finish. A balanced and flavoursome IPA but the Crystal malts won’t be to everyones taste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Hermitage. Clear golden pour with a finger of white foam. Nose is really disappointing. All toast, bread, and buttery caramel. Grassy and husky. Some straw, a bit of orange, and pine. Flavor is dominated by the malt and sweetness. Just a ton of bread and toast. Fair amount of creamy caramel and brown sugar. A little bit of orange peel. Waste of Citra.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
POurs clear dark copper with a creamy/bubbly 3 finger beige head. Aroma is sort of cat pee/evergreen. Med+ body. Nice malt backbone wholly submerged by rough grapefruit rind. Nice bitter, hoppy drink. Mellow in a harsh way.

Bomber poured a clear orange amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness, citrus and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness, light grapefruit and a hint of pine with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber pour. Caramel malt and candied citrus in the nose, doesn’t smell fresh yet I haven’t seen it before on the shelves in IL. Flavor is again caramel candy, low bitterness, floral hops. Seems to lack most citra character. My guess is it is both a bit old and their hop addition times and quantities just sucked.

thought this’d be my favorite. Maybe it was older a Citra hops are usually bold, but while this was very citrus forward it was more understated and mellow.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Ben, thanks! Pours a clear golden orange with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of citrus with a decent amount of sweet grains and a touch of caramel. Flavor is citrus forward with a sweet grains backbone and some additional sweetness from caramel.
