3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Copper color. Creamy head, beige. Citrus & pine hops aroma. Scent of caramel malt in background. Some banana. Sweet malts, caramel, toasted grains. Followed up with a sharp hop bitterness. Crisp, loads of hops. Nice floral, citrus, earthy hop characters. Toasted cereal and hop oil finish. Very well balanced. Stronger than most American IPAs.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pors kind of dark orange with a small off white head. Taste is very malty with a hint of dank hops in there. Not a very good offering.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a beautiful deep mahogany, dark caramel color with huge off white head and lots of intricate lacing.
Aroma of floral hops and spruce.
Strong malt flavors at first, followed by shift to fruity apple and pear hops before finishing with a smoky wood flavor.
Palate is full but not sticky.
Overall a very deliciously complex IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a root beer color with a thin head. Malty with a touch of citrus in the nose. An English style IPA with a more pronounced hop taste in the finish. Very clean, not overly citrusy, very true to the style without going out of balance. Quite a nice IPA without excesses of anything.

A solid IPA. Good head and gold / copper color. Above average citrus hop taste but ultimately wished I had went with the Boss Hog!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
There is a subtle sense of some floral hops in the aroma. The pour is a deep amber with a white head that fades into lacing. The taste is crisp and very smooth for an IPA. There’s a hop presence throughout but it finishes clean and refreshing. I’m quite surprised that this beer is nearly 8%. I find it very drinkable and quite enjoyable!
