3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle thanks to Erik. Pours clear orange with a medium beige head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving decent lacing. Very light aroma hard to detect at all. Notes of pine, citrus, caramel, cardboard. Flavor follows, quite malty - bread caramel sweetness, with pine bitterness. Medium sweet, medium bitter, a bit harsh on the finish, but not bad. Medium body. This feels like it has been around a while, but there is no date on the bottle, thus no way to know.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly cloudy orange pour with a medium sized off white head. Aroma is sweet and citrusy. Medium bodied, sticky malt mouthfeel. Pine and citrus flavors. Abrupt, bitter finish, lingering grapefruit. Decent but not very different or unique in a huge field.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Golden to copper pour with a modest white head and good clarity. Not cloudy. Mellow hop aroma on the nose that is earthy mainly with a slight caramel ester in there too. Nothing over the top, which is how I like IPA’s. Medium body. Like the nose the taste is very pleasant and not disruptive to the senses. You get some caramel biscuit malts and a good hop bitterness at the finish but nothing the lingers awfully long. I like IPA’s that are mellow like this one rather than hopped to the max.

On tap, cloudy dark gold hue with creamy white head, smells a bit of fragrant citrus orange hop, not overly bitter or thick, kind of a creamy texture, nothing that stands out too much but very drinkable

Bottle thanks to Matt! Pours a clear deep orangish amber with a near white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains with a bit of resinous pine underlying. Flavor starts with lots of sweet and earthy grains and has a growing resinous pine note.
