3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper pour with a decent head and lacing. Not much aroma even with my nose in the glass. Mild hops/sweet malts is all.
Taste is a decent blend of hops/malt with a very light bite in the end. Palate is full and quite enjoyable. A bit of a surprise on this one. $10 for 4 pint bottles.
A worthy buy.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
An average nice malty IPA with a hop bite and a slight citrus overnote. Sweet in general with a bit thin mouthfeel but not to bad. I wouldn’t put this at the top of my IPA list but still very acceptable.

[Tap] Tried a nitro and conventional version of this beer on tap. Pours a clear orange color. Nitro version had a dense white head. Not much on the regular CO2 version. Nose is of citrus hops, with some dank earthy hoppiness as well. More pine in the taste, with good amounts of bready malts adding a good balance. Lingering resinous notes leave a dry finish. I actually liked the regular version much better (indicated by the rating above) because of a better hop complexity and balance.

Tallahassee, Fl - Fermentation Lounge - on nitro tap. Pours a slightly murky medium orange with a frothy, creamy, nitro induced medium thick sticky white head. Aroma is fresh and floral with hints of spruce. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some minty accents, a brief bit of citrusy goodness and some back end nuttiness. Mouthfeel is crisp. Pretty decent.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour from a 1 pint bottle. Slightly cloudy amber brew with off white head. Very luminous but lots of stuff floating near the bottom of the glass (I used a Gnarly Oak Chalice.) Aroma of caramel, resin, floral hops. Taste is sweet malt at the start, some resin emerging in the middle and then a moderately bitter finish. Not a hop bomb. A good IPA.
