3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle, from Dutch’s. Labeled 8.9%. Mildly hazy orange color. Thin off-white head. Decent ridges of lace. Bigger body. Smooth lighter carbonation. Full feel to it. Sort of slick. Citrusy grapefruit hop, apricot, some nice funky kind of herbal lightly spicy belgian yeast. Great combo of flavor. Moderate bitter taste, moderate to bigger sweet, nice bit of zest. Mild, pleasant alcohol warmth. Good balance to the taste - a satisfying level of west coast hoppiness. Tasty big flavorful stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark golden with lasting white head and moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet with saison funk, floral tropical fruit (banana, pineapple), hops and fresh cut grass. Flavor is same with sweet Belgian yeast in the finish, along with mild spice complexity. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, funky sweet finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a shaker glass. Light amber color with a generous white frothy head. Aroma is a strong dose of resinous hops with some spiciness from the Belgian yeast in the background. Flavor is lightly sweet and has some lighter malt notes that transition into some resinous hop notes and peppery spice towards the finish. Medium bodied and pretty smooth for the ABV. Overall this is quite good, just a little more mild mannered than I remember.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazed golden with rocky egg shell head. Aroma’s are wheat, hay, yeast, dough, peppery hops, minor lemon citrus and just a hint of funk. Taste is rich and spicy with a lingering barnyard funk. Mouthfeel is edgy and spicy up front then full-bodied on the finish. Overall solid but not game-changing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy and deep dark red. Smells ridiculously resinous and sweet, almost like a candied hop aroma. Dark bitter cherry,with a hint of chocolate , dankness and a dry woody finish. The bitterness lingers for a while. Awesome red IPA!
