4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear copper with a fluffy off white head. Lemon balm, grapefruit and caramel aroma. The flavors are very complex. Cinnamon and spice, cherries, and citrus fruit finishing with a semi-dry malt finish. Incredibly soft mouth feel and very easy to drink. A deliciously unique double IPA!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium aroma of malts, orange, tropical fruit, pine, hops and citrus.
Turbid/opaque amber/orange beer with a slight/medium off-white head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, orange, tropical fruit and pine; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. A large amount of hops, added at every point of brewing, gives this beer a huge hop aroma and flavour. Really unique and refreshing to have such intense hop flavours.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours a cloudy gold beige with a thin eggshell head and decent lacing. Smells and tastes heavily of fruit, especially apple and apricot. Leaves a pleasant aftertaste. Nice bitterness, not to much but it doesn’t leave you longing for more either. Solid.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at tasting. Golden pour. Aroma of caramel, malt and peach, not a good sign. Watery taste of caramel, malt and peach as well. Where are the hops? Where is the bitterness? This was a bummer.
