3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A-- A darker color, more of a crimson red, with a one finger head and web like lacing.
S-- Smells slightly sweet. Usual hops and citrus with a touch of mailt and some carmel
T-- Hops and malt. A little more smooth than other IPA’s. Not a hopbomb.
M-- Good carbonation, not heavy as in hops with a good bite at the end of the beer.
D-- Excellent drinkability. Good combination of hops, citrus and malt. Wanted more than one after was done with this

Bottle. Lacking aroma so it must be old. Deep copper color with minimal foam but decent lacing. A lackluster beer.

Bottle. Cloudy amber with a tall pillowy head. Very strong hoppy aroma, taste is a little sour/off with a lingering astringent finish. Starts great but doesn’t finish to match.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep orange pour with a nose of mostly sweet malts. Taste is a malt forward hoppiness that is nicely smooth. Finish is where the hops hit with a lingering bitter finish. Decent enough.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz into an harpoon ipa glass. Pours a dark ale, ripe orange, medium brown, and dark carrot. Taste is very bitter, hoppy, floral and citrus upfront, still bitter, and slight malt and more bitter in the aftertaste. A fresh and distinct ipa here, seems more like a dark ale at times. Head eases in and then remains thin througout the brew. The bitterness stays on the tounge well after the drink is finished. this is a gentlemans ipa.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orlando, FL - Whole Foods - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, slight murkiness, nice off-white head that leaves a trace of lacing. Aroma has some butter scotch notes, traces of vanilla. Solid bitter flavor with some grapefruit citrus notes, some vanilla in the background, a touch of butterscotch. Thick enough mouthfeel. Decent.
