3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The body has a dark old coppery color with lighter amber highlights and a tall off white head. The head has good retention and makes lots of delicate lacing on the glass. There is a strong sweet caramel maltiness with firm citrus and mellow piney hop notes. It has a solid medium body with a sweet malty character off set buy citrusy hops on the finish. Its sweetness is caramel like and dominates most of the flavor profile till the finish where the hops pop out, bringing with them the bitterness of an IPA. This bitterness slowly fades of the tongue well into the aftertaste.

Bottle pour. Great looking beer. Matt, ruby red with good sized head. Nose is tropical fruit at first, but quickly displaced with cider and sterile toasted malts. Taste continues the theme of pushing the hops to background. Lots of malt caramel malt characteristics. Earthy. A bit grainy, borderline watery, on palate. Eh.

Draft at Pony Bar HK during the Hudson Valley NY tap takeover event. Not as horrible as the Super kitty imperial version, but still a very malt-focused ipa. Lots of caramel malt character dominating any semblance of hop profile there might have been. Some slick pine resin in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Keg. Pours hazy copper with a fluffy off-white head that lasts and laces. Smells of apple cider and piney, citrusy hops. Drinks smoothly with mild lingering hop bitterness. Medium bodied. Good effervescence. Tastes of wood, wet leaves, and piney hops. Solid, but weirdly balanced for an IPA.
