3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep golden color with a huge foamy whitish head. Bitter hoppiness, earthy, dirty, leading to a thin finish. Not as strong as the alcohol content would lead you to believe.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Mariís. Pours crystal clear orange with a couple fingers of off white head. There is tons of carbonation in the glass supporting the retention of the head. The aroma smells like a pine tree, pine cone, some resin, light floral notes, mild caramel. The taste on this is pretty damn bitter and hits you pretty quick on the tongue. The hop flavor is fairly earthy and has a strong caramel backing. Limited citrus on this and the finish is very dry. Donít see the low rating.. pretty solid overall brew for my palate.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Whole Foods - El Segundo. Big grapefruit nose, some floral notes, too. Hazy dark straw. bid rocky head. Heavy toffee, caramel initial; hops poke through in mid, but not much; final has some mild hop traces over thick sweetness. Medium-heavy body. Maybe less-than-stellar ingredients are used in this one. Contract brewed for Fox Brews. Okay. A bit too sweet.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. Big hop aroma, slight caramel, floral, fruity, resin, slight toffee. Notes of oxidation. Not really into this one, to sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Twelve ounce bottle from Food N Fermentation. This pours hazed coppery with a decent fluffy beige head. A big caramel aroma with fruit and pine. An interesting earthiness too. This beer has a huge malt profile with citrus and pine hops a little behind. I taste some bready yeast. It has plenty of sweetness and maybe a little too much. A decent brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slight-hazed golden in color with a well-built white head. Fruity-citrus hop aroma. Full-bodied with a floral, light piney hop dominance that lingers nicely. Pretty good for the price.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Very cloudy amber/orange with a huge foamy head that lingers around for a while to form rocky peaks. Aroma of sweet citrus peel, tropical fruit, pine and herbal tea. Flavor of sweet malt and oranges, rough hop bitterness and a well hidden alcohol. This is a very odd beer, lots of sweet citrus and malt with a weird abrasive hop presence.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can- Pours hazy orange with a one finger creamy off white head. Aroma is hops and malt, somewhat resinous. The taste is overly malty for an IPA, there is a hop presence, but way too much malt, caramel malt and IPA should not be used in the same sentence in my opinion. It isnít horrible, but not for me.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz can. Here is a pretty shabbily executed IIPA. Burnt oily hop flavor, really kind of vegetal, bad. Attractive enough appeaance, glowing amber-orange with a frothy yet creay just off-white head The aroma is bad, think Minhas IIPA. Soapy and astringent, really has a dominating oily residue. Tweaker IIPA.

Draft: I have two rules for drinking beers, 1) drink local and 2) always try something new. This one is brutal on the alcohol presence, needs a lot of balance. Food Pairing: Strong, stinky cheese.
