4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from santa: Pours a nice copper color with a nice, slightly off white head. Smell is seems pleasant, some pine, citrus, and maybe some caramel hidden in the back. Taste is piney, with a hint of citrus. In no way is this IPA overpowering. It’s well balanced and very well done.

12oz bottle from Brewmaster’s in Wilson. Orange hue, hazy clarity with mostly diminishing white head. Spotty lacing. Moderate citrus hop, some sweet fruit, floral aroma on the nose. Moderate bitter grapefruit taste up front with a floral finish. As it warmsthe alcohol starts to come out more.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an almost clear amber with whiteish head. Big, tropical fruit hoppiness with mangoes, preserved peaches and some pine cones. Slightly caramelly maltiness. Juicy aroma. The palate is medium+ bodied with some sweetness and a nice kick of bitterness on the finish. Pretty well balanced for the style.

Pours flat amber with creamy white head. Aroma is heavy malty, cookie, resin, pine. Bitter finish, velvety mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Delicious balance. Not very fruity, more on the wooden side. Great.

citrus and pine hop aroma ... sweet citrus rind, concentrated orange and medium pine resin ... very nice balance of pine and citrus with a good amount of light sweetness ... maybe its the new batch or maybe its the timing of my growing appreciation of craft beer over the last year, but this is better than I remember

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours light copper with thin white head and little lacing. Aromas of pine, spruce, and lemons. Malty light sweetness turns to light bitterness, then finishes with a dry bitter bite. Very well done, smooth IPA that leaves wanting more.
