Awesome! Pours a clear amber golden with a fleeting that that leaves a lingering lacing around the edge of the glass. Lots of citrus, stone fruit aroma in the hops.Taste is really packed with complexity; lots of hops, citrus, and just the right amount of bitterness to counter the sweetness. Really nice dry finish... Super refreshing. I’d recommend this one for spring and summer for sure!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance- clear, Amber
Aroma-dry, hoppy like an IPA some citrus notes.
Taste- dry hops with a slightly floral note (very, very slight). Tastes more balanced than a traditional IPA But hoppier than a pale ale.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bottle. Yellow, white diminishing head. Fair lacing. Aroma mango and hops. Taste first sweet, mango and ripe pears, then turning into long hoppy finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Some fuckin old as bottle shared by ebone1988. Thanks, I guess. The pour is a darker gold pour with a thin film of white head and a pretty decent soapy lace. The aroma is old. There is a lot of cardboard and a sweet caramel malt. The toffee is huge here. It’s sweet and malty and everything an IPA shouldn’t be. This is like a way too quickly consumed Barleywine. Ugh. Damnit Eric. The flavor is bad like whoa. There is just a resounding bready and toffee sweetness. All malt. This is not good at all. The mouth feel is thicker and heavy with a lack of carbonation and a lingeringly sweet caramel aftertaste. It’s not good at all. Fuck this. Lagunitas sucks.

Bottle shared with koleminer20, Merchants likes to sell old beer so here we go. Aroma is old, tropical fruit, malt, bready, sweet, damn. Appearance is golden amber, white head, clear. Taste is old. Bready, pine, malt. I’ll have to revisit this one. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, bready malt aftertaste. Overall, without a legible date on the bottle, I bought this. God damn Merchants.

Pours a nice orange-reddish hue. Sweet pine and a tad of citrus dominate the aroma. One of the best smelling when fresh. Taste is initially sweet followed by smooth pine and grapefruit. Even non hopheads can appreciate this beer because of the wheaty hopiness. Never fails!!!

Drank straight from the bottle. This is one of the more interesting brews I’ve had. Smell is strong hops, almost minty. Really pleasant. Taste follows closely, but not quite as pleasant as the smell. But it’s a good one, interesting. I’d buy this again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of white grapefruit, sweet pale malts, and a bit of cut grass. Classic grapefruit and pale malt IPA flavors. Some bread dough and white pepper elements are in there too. Less bitter than expected, but still well balanced. Decent.
