4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Comes out of the growler a rich clear chestnut with a thick and rather persistent light buff head. Aroma is quite hoppy, more resiny than woody, with an undertone of Mandarin orange and a hint of fresh malt. Very pleasing flavor has woody hop, evergreen and orange notes, barely bitter, hint of caramel. Smooth texture is fairly firm, if not too fizzy. I love this series!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish amber with a light white head. Aroma is caramel with some pine hops. Flavor is caramel with a bit of nuttiness and some pine hops. A little under carbonated though and the body is a bit thin. Finish is bitter pine hops with a little cloying aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Some tropical fruit notes poke through, an off malt note, pine, and cirus rounded out the flavor. Sweet and moderate bitter. The carbonation was very some and the palate was medium thick for an ipa. Not bad, just not spectacular.

Growler from the beer growler. That ever so cleverly named store. Ruby red almost brown color. Apple apricot light tropical citrus aroma. Flavor a little more dominated by the caramel malt and candi sugar. Finish is straight up pine cone.
