3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the bottle. Pours light orange, hazy, medium white head, leaves a bit of lacing. Pine, dank, citra hops in the nose. Good body, some malt, but mostly grassy, citrus-tasting hops with underlying pine and resin. Bitter finish lingers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Alluring citrus aroma is backed up by a full bodied flavour that is more balanced (ie. less hop-forward) than expected. An excellent beer.

I saved this for last and glad I did. A mystery; scents of lavender, tea and orange. Yup. Awesome. It stands up to and compliments Sriracha shrimp.
"If you don’t know, know you know". I don’t have a favorite style but this one of the best beers I’ve ever had. So glad I have 11 more to enjoy and share during the holidays. Make that ten.

Bottle into a glass. Nice golden pour. Big pine and citrus aroma. Taste is pine, tropic fruits, sticky resin. Big mouthful of sticky pine lingers for awhile. Really crisp and refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Intense aromas of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, citrus in general. Very hop forward, but the flavors are not as intense as the nose, but still pretty bright and floral, tropical hops.

Brilliant aromas of citrusy and floral hops. Orange-gold with a mostly lasting bubbly white head. Some sweet fruitiness, a little orange cough syrup, decent balance. Medium bodied.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the TriBeCa grand hotel bar. Nice floral hop aroma. Flavor doesn't quite live up to the promise of the nose. Not a bad IPA but it was more challenging to drink than I prefer.
