3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a translucent copper with a thin off white head that leaves nice lacing... Smells sweet, toffee, dominated by a hoppy citrusy aroma.... Taste is creamy, with dominant citrus hops and a hint of sweet malt in the background... Medium Full bodied with a lingering citrusiness... I didnt realize the alcohol was 8, i was expecting 6, which is why while drinking it i was a bit put off by the mouthfeel, thinking it was way to thick...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Teresa’s Next Door. Poured slightly hazy copper with off-white head. Nice lacing. Piney, citrusy flavor. Not overwhelmingly bitter and easier to drink than most IPAs. A bit thin bodied, but very crisp. Surprised at the 8% ABV. Very nice. I can see why this one is climbing in the rankings a bit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Moderate roasted, nutty and caramel for the malt, heavy spruce and orange for the hops, light soap for the yeast and hints of pepper and a mix of fresh and dried fruits. Head is small, frothy, slightyl off-white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is dark amber/orange. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, oily and has a soft carbonation. A pretty good IPA and very easy drinking beer.

12oz bottle from an east coaster of course....pours a clear light orange brown with a thin off-white head.... aroma of sweet juicy floral/citrus hops.... flavors carried on much of the same with generally sweet citrus hops with very little bitterness. carbonation keeps things honest and the alcohol level isn’t apparent at first but it does warm you up a bit....an underrated IPA, and an 8% one at that.

Out of the cask this one pours an amber color with a bit of white head.
The smell is piney and citrusy.
The first blast of flavor comes from the hops which are quite tangy and this is immediately followed by a strong grapefruit flavor. The finish is surprisingly smooth.
The mouthfeel is a bit stagnant, but it is possible that this is because of the cask.
This is a very drinkable brew and I was quite impressed overall.

Tap at grey lodge. Certainly not kidding, very flowery aroma. very refreshing, on tap I’m not tasting excessivse sweetness as some have reported. to me, a super, flower/citrus/pine wallop that stays controlled and drinkable. very nice.
