3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice dark copper with an off white head and earthy aroma. Taste is bitter up front, of hops, pine, and citrus notes which lead into a big bitter, dry, long finish. Solid IPA with nice bitterness

Didnít have much of a red ale flavor to it and the hops were not in line with an IPA. Taste was confused and gimmicky.

Bottle pour copper red. Nose of some pine hop, but also sweet and caramel malt. Taste almost exclusively malt. Some bitterness from the hop, but no flavor.

12 oz. bottle shared by drsordrs. Pours a clear amber copper color with a small white head that leaves some lacing. The aroma has some pine resin,mild citrus and catty hops with caramel and toasted malts. The flavor is heavy on the toasted malts and caramel with only a small amount of citrus and resiny hops. Tough to get excited about an IPA that has little hop flavor.

22 on vacation in the mountains. Pours a deep amber red with an off white head froth. Grassy herbal touch of pine aroma. Flavor has a lot of that pine stickiness coming through with a deep chewy grain and caramel malt backbone. Not in love with the hop profile but thatís just a personal preference.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market in Elizabeth City, NC. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Really nice aroma of pine needles and grapefruit. The flavor is very hop-forward with bitter grapefruit rind, fresh cut grass, and pine. The bitterness is the first impression but it is not overwhelming. A nice surprise.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a brick red amber into the glass, with a light eggshell cap that leaves window-wash lacing. The nose is peppery and spiced. Nice flavors of toasted caramel, grapefruit, pepper, floral hops, and finishing with a roasted, toasted peppering bitter. The balance is nice, and the mouthfeel is round with a semi-active palate and medium body. Pretty tasty, and another nice offering from a local brewer.

flowery and grapefruit lemony with some candy sweetness. low aroma and nice malt backbone brew shows rye when just out of the bottle. nice session imperial since the alcohol is not overdone, just drink it slower.

Tampa, Fl - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Nice deep dark copper pour, thin, but long lasting off-white head, light lacing. Aroma is somewhat of a mess with some baby diapers, a hint of spruce, some ripening vegetables. The flavor redeems the aroma with some nice bittersweet citrus notes, some caramel sweetness, a bit of nuttiness. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Solid little IPa that is very drinkable. Doesn't really do anything very right or wrong. Hops are nice but need more potency and freshness. Malt profile is light but balanced nicely. Aromas are a bit mute.
