3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle in trade with performula. Good pine, resin and citrus aromas hit the nose. Orange body with off white head. Flavor started out with a malty sweetness. Citrus hops kick in middle to finish. Dry bitterness hits the palate near the finish. Good Brew.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep amber with one finger white head. The nose is smooth and subtle only hinting at the citrus and hoppy flavor. The flavor is crisp and much to ones surprise much more aggressive that the aroma would have you think. A pleasant surprise.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep orange-reddish with a nearly rediculously huge head. Pine and citrus dominate the aroma, and leaves you fairly satisfied and wanting to take a sip so badly. Taking a sip reveals a rich brew full of malts that taste of caramel and toffee but are quickly bitch smacked away by a huge hop profile. This brew is heavy on cascade I can tell but I can’t pick out the other four. Oh well no matter, this is a very nice brew sweet at first and then the bittering pucker factor with the hops. I like this alot.

Thanks to Suttree for this one.
Deep orange/amber with a huge off-white head.
Piney citrusy hop aroma with a sticky malt base below.
Toasty bready graham cracker flavor with some bitterness in the finish.
The malts remain dominant however.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice hop aroma. Good looking beer in the glass. Thick white head. Good thick mouthfeel. A little too sweet for my taste. Still has a nice hop bite to it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
a tough beer to rate at the IIPA Capitol of the world, O’Briens. Smells malt with the flavor of rich passion fruits and raisens.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Caramel color, light head and light lacing. Nose of bright earthy citrus and pine, some citrus. The flavor is woody, light tobacco and bright acidity, lacking a malt backbone to backup the bitterness but isn’t under sweet per se. Bamboo? Interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Pours a nice copper color with a small beige head. Aroma of malts and fruitiness, moderate on the hops. Flavor is more malty sweet and floral hops. A good offering in the I2PA arena.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poures a hazy medium amber. Snall of white head. Malty sweet BW like aroma. Hops are soft and faded. Thick bodied and a bit syrupy. Boce malts and brown sugar flavors with nearly enough IBUs. Slight cardboardy woody trailer.
