Very nice, fruity nose on this. A sweet fruity rather than the grapefruit that is typical. Real nice feathered light amber rich gold color with a nice big head that laced around nicely before leaving a thin film on the surface. Nothing much on the back end which I like although most may not.

Draft at Gordons. Golden Amber pour with a medium white head. Nose is nice sweet citrus with some Pine. Taste is similar to the nose but the pine takes over. Grassy and hoppy, some more malt sweetness throughout the body.

Bottle via trade. Nose full of citrus rind and a little pine. Taste is a little pithy and astringent. Light malt balance with a drying finish. Ok.

Pours a cloudy reddish gold with decent head and lacing. Floral, citrus aromas. Tastes is slightly bitter with sweet notes, like dandelion, pine, lemon, and tangerines. This is a nice IPA for those who don’t like to be slapped in the face by hoppy bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Initial aroma of dank hops upon opening the bottle. Pours a hazy gold, off-white head that retains pretty well. Aroma in the glass is much more faint than when I first opened the bottle. Slight pine from the hops...slight citrus...and some hints of the bready malt. Taste is a bit thinner on the hops than I expected. More bitter and some sting from the alcohol in the back end. Medium thickness in the mouthfeel . Finishes with a nice biterness but was hoping for some balance from the malt here. Decent IPA.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden. Smells lightly hoppy. Very smooth. Mild hops. Solid malt backbone. Not sure I can call this an IPA. Great beer, just not a great representation of the style.
