3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft: Pours a hazy amber color with a 1 finger dense white head. Nice fresh floral and a little citrus hop aroma. Flavor is carmelly malt and lots of fresh green hop flavor. Moderate bitterness with a little lingering bitterness and hints of orange and a crisp finish. Really nicely balanced.

On Tap... poured a honey tone with a thin white head. Earthy hop aroma. Palate is mildly carbonated and a bit chewey. Flavors of dry hops, pine and peppery spices, and a little soapy undertone. Dry finish.

Light amber color, tremendously hoppy oder. A hoppy aftertaste as well, which is good, cause its not pungent. A quality organic. Would drink again! A+++

On tap at the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a white head. This IPA had a powerful bitterness throughout with a very young green hop taste, feels like it needs some time for the hops to die a bit. Just too bitter for my taste, hops overwhelmed the light sweetness up front.
