3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a tight lasting white head that leaves nice lacing. Aromas of pine needle, orange zest, cut grass and lemon juice. Taste begins with juicy citrus before a firm pine resin and pepper bitterness jumps in. Burnt orange and grass at the end. A huge beer but well balanced and not overwhelming at all.

Sampled at AOT Wilmington. Bold aroma starts with hop, grass, pine, weed, spice, toasted malts. Potent finish. It’s got some bite and heat. Great balance. Wish I could remember this one better.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Excellent hoppy beer. Full hop aroma with a nice citrus hop flavor. Strong, but it has enough malt to compensate for the hops.

Pours hazy orange with quickly dissipating head. Aroma is big piney hops, resin and malt. Taste is a smooth, sweet floral upfront and fades to a crisp bitterness with a slightly oily mouthfeel. A very nice offering.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Resiny hop aroma. Pours clear, orangish amber color. Bottle was poured into 2 tulip glasses, and I think it was bottle conditioned, since my glass was very cloudy & the other glass was clear! Head dissipates quickly, a little lacing. Full bodied. Overall, a good IPA. Low bitterness, good citrus flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Standard longneck. Good label and cap. Clear, bright orange-gold, eggshell foam. Inviting toffee hop aroma. Very hoppy, resinous, moderately sweet and fruity. Bitterness borders on astringency sometimes. Chewy, sticky mouthfeel. Long citrus pith bitter finish. Booziness is well masked. Whole Foods, Tallahassee on a sweltering, stormy day.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a hazy to transparent bronzed color with a slim finger’s worth of white foaminess that dissipated immediately leaving clingy messy lacing.
The smell had some herbal to floral sweetness rolling over a caramel maltiness.
The taste copied the smell staying sweet throughout . Barely any bitterness showed any presence. Slight caramel aftertaste and a semi-dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed decent for the style and for me. The herbal quality puncuates the palate to create a decent smoothness.
Overall, if the bitterness was brought up on this one...yeah, could be way better.
