4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is all about the hops although it seems to have found itself a very nice balence which is a must for me! the smell is great and the taste and finish are near perfect the the style (that being American IPA). I will seek this out again!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle via trade. Amber color with a one-finger off-white head. Aroma is floral and citrusy hops and sweet malt. Flavor is sweet pale/caramel malt, highly citrusy (orange and grapefruit) hops, with herbal qualities. Fairly bitter on the finish with a medium-full body. Not really outstanding in any one aspect, but comes together very well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slight hop aroma, with pine and citrus notes, pours a dark amber, with a fluffy white head. Nice bitterness in the flavor, with a touch of astringency. Short bitter finish, with a full mouthfeel. A solid IPA, nothing extraordinary, but solid.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a golden orange with a frothy head and wonderful aromas of pine and citrus. I have absolutely no idea how this is rated this low... did they change recipes? Anyhow, first sip reveals a wonderfully balanced IPA with a heavy pine and grapefruit hops side to it. There is definitely enough malt to balance things out well and this is an instant favorite in the IPA category.

Growler shared by axilla and egajdzis at Glimmerglass. Thanks boys! This was really yummy. The growler was filled that day so it was pretty damn fresh and tasty. A great beer to start the weekend with.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Adam for the bottle. Hazy orange pour. Off white head that slowly fizzles to a fine film that leaves loads of spotty lace. Floral notes with a blast of orange zest. Light grainy character with soft bitterness. Pine and grapefruit

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of secret santa. Thanks Rudy. Pours a translucent copper color with a small white head. The aroma is inviting with floral notes, chlorophyll, citrus (particularly oranges) and some pine. The flavor is biter hops forward with pine, citrus, biter walnuts and caramel malts. The mouthfeel is full and buttery with lively carbonation. The finish is long with lingering biter hops. Overall: A very respectable IPA, love the aroma in particular.

Sixer purchased at Rozi’s in Lakewood. The aroma of this beer is amazing. It really smells fresh, floral and alive. It doesn’t rush at your with bitter citrus aromas or any hint of alcohol, it just smells naturally floral. It also just mellows as it goes down. It doesn’t have that hop flavor that just attacks the mouth, this is oily, buttery and full of floral flavors. God almighty, this is fantastic. Really solid all around and drinkable. Unlike some beers that rely on loads of carbonation or bitterness to assault your palate, this just speaks to you with its rich floral flavor.
