3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz Bottle. Best before: 05-16-08. Gooey hop nose. A good mingling of hop spices, wet leaves, and flowers. Blended and backed with alcohol and decent caramel. Pours a crystal-clear amber, with an orange fringe and white, soapy rim. Flavor is interesting. There’s a lot of hop flavor, which I greatly appreciate, but it gets washed away somewhat by piquant alcohols and a thin body. Not as chewy as I would have expected with this color. Grapefruit juice lingers. A little bit of dust and lightly old hop resin dot the back end of the beer. A very mild yeast by-product shows mid-palate. Nice hop flavors, but in the end a little watery, dusty-tasting, and alcoholic. Thanks Sean!

On tap at Blind Tiger with James and Dallaaay. Pours a deep ruby with a small tuft of off-white head atop. Nice stringy lacing throughout. Aroma is clean pine, grapefruit, sweet orange slices, and some juicy mango and tropical fruit notes. Meduim bodied with a juicy, slick palate. Flavor is heavy on the mango and grapefuits; very fresh and dank tasting. Finish is nice and smooth. Excellent IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler. Pours a clear, very golden amber with a white head. Tons of resinous pine resin (yes I know that’s redundant) in the aroma, lots of grapefruit. Flavor has pine, light grapefruit, kind of a lavender potpourri quality. Lighter palate, especially compared to the aroma.
