3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked this 12oz can at the COOP a couple days ago.. Pours with a decent white head that shows okay lacing atop a clear golden brew.
Nose is nicely hopped... tropical fruitiness and onion/garlic.. weird combination but the allium notes are not overblown.
Good hoppy bitterness that is balanced barely by a decent amount of residual pale maltiness... Not a big fan of the onion/garlic hops but they work in this stretch and aren’t overdone.
Body is light/medium... carbonation could be a touch higher IMO.

Sweet, flowery, and overflowing with tropical fruit aroma. Clear amber with a thin creamy head. Sweet fruity taste with a nice bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This seemed like a well balanced and classy IPA. And it gets to the point where there is very little to distinguish between all of these craft-brewed IPAs. There are so many of them and most of them are quite good. I would have rated this one a little higher but there remained a slight off-putting note in the finish. I really couldn’t tell what it was. Cardboardish? Stale?

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: Draft. It pours a light amber color with a white head. Fruity nose with a light maltiness and pine. Well balanced bitterness in the flavor. Malt, light caramel, pine, and apple notes. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear orangish gold with a frothy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma of resin, grapefruit, pine, fruity esters and some sweet pale malts. Taste is grapefruit, pine and the bitterness is a bit astringent on the finish. Overall this is a big hoppy ipa which some may like but it’s all about balance in my books.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap half pint at Gilly's Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD.
Slightly hazy, medium amber-copper with a creamy off-white head and lacing that starts out great but slides back quickly, leaving a few traces.
Aroma of caramel, pine, citrus and grass with the hops and malt in almost equal balance.
Taste of pineapple, caramel, citrus and pine.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
