3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a light orange color, with average head and lacing. Aroma is orange citrusy, and piney, a little sharp. Flavor has a nice grapefruit-bitter bite, along with piney notes and a fair amount of spiciness. Finishes on the dry side, and with lingering bitterness. A nice example of a AIPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle, six pack from BevMo. Pours a clear, rich copper color with a small whitish head that diminishes rapidly. Aroma of toasty malts, herbs and sweet bread, hints of clover and citrus. Flavor also of toasty malts, a bit of caramel, biter herby hops, lemon grass, citrus peel, a bit of clay and a slightly peppery, astringent finish. Medium body, lightly oily and a gentle tingle on the tongue. Overall a much better, hoppier IPA than their standard.
