Bottle. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a nice size head that leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and pine. Taste of hops with a slight hint of grapefruit and toffee. Finishes nicely with a bit of hop bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A light brown with maybe some reddish orange hints. Aroma was originally a little citrusy and then ended up florally by the end. The flavor was a little sweet and then just a lot of hoppiness. The bitterness on this was awesome too. I know this is in ipa but the body seemed a little thin. Good beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Muddy brown, floating yeast, huge beige cloudy head. Hoppy aroma with metal and berries. Liquerish-like palate, very fruity yeasty, nutty, slightly unfermented. Hops rise in the aftertaste, which is still a bit sweet.

Bottled (thanks Stoutlover72). Hazy nutbrown colour, huge beige fluffy head. Aroma is yeast, American hops and lots of fruit. Flavour is nutty, hoppy and toffeeish. Finish and aftertaste is sweetish malts and hops with nuts in background. Pleasant!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a clear orangey color ale with a medium foamy head with average retention and lacing. Aroma of metallic hops with some caramel malt. Taste is a mix between sweet malt with some metallic hops and a bitter finish. Body is about average. Overall, this is an OK IPA but far from being great and lacking balance between malt and hops.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Excellent hop aroma with some mild malt coming through. A nice clear copper colored beer with a light tan head. Very good hop flavor with a good biscut light toasted type malt flavor to balance. I like the malt balance as it isn’t so much crystal as it is like toasted malts grains that you would’ve toasted in the oven. A very good take on the IPA and I like the almost normal alcohol content, I can drink a 6 pack and not be too wasted!!!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange hue with a nice white head on top. Aroma is hops, pine, citrus with a malt in the background. Flavor is not really there. Not getting much of anything really. For the aroma to be pretty hoppy there isn’t really much hops in the taste. I am not very impressed with this beer.
