2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber color out of the bottle with a thin fizzy off white head. Floral hop nose with some citrus notes. There is some caramel sweetness but mostly just raw hop pellet bitterness. Lots of hop resin with some stale fruit and dusty grapefruit rind in the finish. Not as well balanced as I like.

Poured from bottle. Aroma of hops, malt and brownies. Amber, lacing tan head. Citrus and grassy hops dominate, creamy malt in back. Slightly metallic aftertaste. Nut, caramel and raisin notes. Not outstanding, but pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drank from the bottle. Aroma is fruity with a touch of malt. The taste is basically the same, not a bad ipa. Unremarkable but satisfying nonetheless.
