3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bomber from bev4ess. Pours a translucent brass color with a small white head that has minimal retention. The aroma is big and bold with lots of citrusy goodness (oranges in particular) and a touch of pine. The flavor, like the aroma, is a blast of bitter hops featuring oranges, grapefruit and pine. The malt base is almost invisible with just a touch of barley showing through, this makes for a very clean quaff. The palate is silky smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long, dry and bitter. Overall: I found the bitterness of this just a bit harsh and over-the-top, otherwise a very decent IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had on tap at the source. $5 for the full pint. Pours golden with which a snowy white ringed head 1 finger in length stood atop. Experienced pistachios, fried peanuts, American hops, mustard seeds, and sea salt. Spicy, lingering, and memorable. Not necessarily the standout of the night, but I’d have this again.

Big floral hop aroma. Pretty clean taste and big hop flavor throughout the sip. Nice flavors that stick around after the taste. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: completely hazed, opaque orange sunburst & goldenrod body with a quickly fleeting, eggshell head. Aroma has notes of moderate pine & mild tropical fruit, perhaps some passion fruit & mango. Perfume-y & full of hop oils. Taste falls a little short. Kind of thin. Perfume, floral hops, light pine, some pineapple & grapefruit peel-y notes. Clean & crisp with a light, bready sugar malt finish, mild bitterness throughout. Solid IPA, nothing more, nothing less.
