Nice and hoppy. Nothing new, but still good. A decent alcohol content, and it’s always nice to try something new from Hop Valley.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle poured at home. Had to give this one a try since I am so fond of their other IPA work. Pours a bright orange gold color with a big sweet and piney aroma. Nice, semi sweet flavor with a creamy body to it. Has a little orange slices flavor. Refreshing. Finishes with some nice hoppiness to bit, but not bitter. Great IPA. Impressed with these guys so far.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12-oz. Thanks, J! Pours a cloudy medium golden amber with a loose white head. Sharp tangy grapefruit nose with sweeter fruit notes, equally bitey, also showing. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Mid palate shows caramel a little on the toasty side, and hop acids a little on the bitey side, but cohesive and not unpleasant. Just a sharper IPA with a little extra sting in the finish.
