12 ounce bottle courtesy of ucusty. Thanks! Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head, average retention and great lacing. Sweet floral hop aroma. Taste is citrus and leafy hops with some sweet malts. Medium body.

Crushed with Honkeybra. Lots of awesome floral hops on the nose. Gave way to...nothing. This is the Calista Flockhart of ipa’s: probably smells and looks nice, but absolutely no body whatsoever. Flavor is severely lacking in anything related to a ipa.

Crushed with TheDude at Budde’s pizza in Galesburg, IL. Looks nice, golden with some hops. Smells really nice, beautiful floral hops. However, this beer has no body. Just hops and Very disappointing.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Light amber, clear. Hoppy, light fruit aroma. Nice hoppy flavor and dry finish. Liked it a lot.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Copper color with a large head. Light grassy aroma. Malty flavor with some caramel finishing it up. No hops. None. Not even a residule bitterness. 43 different hops? It doesn’t seem like they even used one. If this had been labeled an Amber, it would have been great. As it is, it is an okay tasting brew that is completely disappointing considering the label on it.

Draft at Loki Music Festival. Pours a light amber beer with a decent orangish head. Aroma is hoppy and citrus fruit. Flavor is your typical hoppy IPA. End is bitter and a little bit dy. Great beer very drinkable

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice and true IPA. Fairly normal color. Hoppy scent with some type of sweetness in the background. But then again if you’re using 43 different hops in it, then that’s probably part of the sweeter scent I can smell. One or more of these hops probably has a sweeter scent than others. Has a nice hoppy taste with a great aftertaste. I heard good things about this one and it lived up to the hype.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Great malty I.P.A. I like how this brew stands out from the crowd. Flavors of caramel, citrus, and roasted malt. Very close to an A.S.A imo, a bit alc and it would be there. Well rounded drinkable IPA

Nice IPA. Pours a bright amber with light orange head that dissapears quickly leaving a medium lace. Aroma is great - a big orange citrus marmalade bouquet. Good Palate, with medium astringecy.
